( NR341/342 Complex Adult Health RUA: Interdisciplinary Care Assignment Guidelines ) ( Purpose The purpose of this assignment is for the student to reflect on the nursing care of a critically-ill individual from a clinical experience. The student will demonstrate clinical reasoning skills and will discuss interdisciplinary care that had been incorpo rated and/or anticipated during the care of the critically-ill individual. Course outcomes: This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes: CO 1: Provide nursing care to patients and their families in critical and emergent care s ettings based on theories and principles of nursing and related disciplines. CO 2: Initiate the use of appropriate resources in direct care responsibilities within critical-care and emergent care settings. CO 3: Demonstrate effective therapeutic communicat ion and relationship skills in providing care to patients and families in critical-care and emergent care settings. CO 4: Demonstrate effective clinical decision-making based on critical thinking skills and legal, ethical, and professional standards and pr inciples when caring for patients and families in critical care and emergent care settings. CO 5: Implement a plan of for continued personal, professional, and educational development related to nursing practice within critical-care and emergent care setti ngs. CO 7: Use evidence including research findings from nursing and related disciplines to answer clinical questions related to nursing care of patients in critical care and emergent care settings. ) ( Preparing the assignment Follow these guidelines when completing this assignment. The paper should be typed and presented in APA format, including an A PA title page, use of headings, and references with in-text citations. Spelling and grammar will be evaluated with this assignment. Speak with your faculty member if you have questions.

For each nursing diagnosis, include three (3) specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely (SMART) nursing goals/outcomes, three (3) nursing interventions, and three (3) collaborative interventions. *This section can be presented as a table or concept map. ) ( Interventions – R OUTINE N URSING M ANAGEMENT ) (  ) ( Describe independent nursing care you provided in the care of the critically-ill individual. Examples include, but are not limited to: activity level, position, ongoing monitoring, and nutrition (prescribed diet, tube feedings/TPN, formula, rate, and calculation of basal energy expenditure (BEE), patient education, wound care etc.). The rationale must be i ncluded for each intervention. ) ( Interdisciplinary (ID) Care Collaborative Management ) (  ) ( Identify the members of the interdisciplinary team caring for the critically-ill individual. Provide a brief description of their roles and responsibilities. Int erdisciplinary team members include, but are not limited to: physician, pharmacist, lab/diagnostic tests personnel, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work/case management, pastoral care, ethicist, etc. ) ( T herapeutic Modalities ) (  ) ( Describe the various therapeutic modalities used in the management of care for the critically-ill individual. Discuss the extent of the nurse’s responsibilities and skills required to manage the therapeutic modality in comparison to the responsibilities of the members of the interdisciplinary team. Therapeutic modalities include but are not limited to: oxygen therapy (mode, FiO2,), dialysis/CRRT (settings), ventilator therapy (mode of ventilation, settings, FiO2). The rationale must be included for each modality. ) ( Nursing Role Reflection ) (  ) ( Provide a brief summary of how your role interacted with the members of the interdisciplinary team. Include in your summary Analysis of communication style preferences among interdisciplinary team members and with the critically-ill individual and family members. What is the impact of your own communication style on others? System barriers and facilitators. Did the organizational framework for interdisciplinary management of care facilitate or hindered the quality of care/outcomes for the critically-ill individual? What recommendations can you m ake to the organizational system for enhancing interdisciplinary collaboration? Provide at minimum two (2) evidence-based literature sources to support your recommendations. ) ( 341/342 _RUA Assignment Guidelines ) ( 2 )
