from completing this activity will help you succeed with the assessment.
Completing formatives is also a way to demonstrate engagement.
Preparation
Imagine that you are a staff nurse in a
community care center. Your facility has always had a dedicated case management
staff that coordinated the patient plan of care, but recently, there were
budget cuts and the case management staff has been relocated to the inpatient
setting. Care coordination is essential to the success of effectively managing
patients in the community setting, so you have been asked by your nurse manager
to take on the role of care coordination. You are a bit unsure of the process,
but you know you will do a good job because, as a nurse, you are familiar with
difficult tasks. As you take on this expanded role, you will need to plan
effectively in addressing the specific health concerns of community residents.
To prepare for this assessment, you may wish
to:
Review the assessment instructions
and scoring guide to ensure that you understand the work you will be asked
to complete.
Allow plenty of time to plan
your chosen health care concern.
