Choose from one of the patients handed over to you. Using the template provided in the Assessment 1 folder and, based on the handover you received at the beginning of your shift today, other information included below and current reliable evidence for practice, address the following tasks.

Task 1: Consider the patient

Based on the case scenario and in grammatically correct sentences:

  • Define the patient’s condition.
  • Discuss the pathophysiology of the disease.
  • How does the condition link with the patient’s past medical history?

Task 2: Care plan

  • Evaluation

Task 3: Patient education:  Discharge planning

Patient education and discharge planning starts on admission and you need to provide your patient with education during your shift in preparation for discharge home.

  • Explain two important points/topics you will need to include in the patient’s preparation for discharge to aid healing and prevent further illness.

For each education point identified provide:

One strategy to assist the patient to implement the education into their daily routine.

Task 4: Medication

  • Choose two medications that your patient has been prescribed (one (1) from their new medications list and one (1) from their old medications list) and discuss the following:
  • How does the medication work?
  • Why has your patient been prescribed this medication?
  • Are there any red flags/drug interactions that could affect the patient?
