Assessment 3. Application of strengths-based nursing principles
Emma Gee case study
Using any of the resources available related to the Emma Gee case study presented throughout the unit, develop a discussion on how strengths-based nursing and healthcare could be implemented for Emma at any point of her journey, or across the whole of her journey (hypothetically as if Emma was to experience her healthcare journey again).
Your discussion should
provide an overview of what is strengths-based nursing synthesising the principles and values of SBN
demonstrate how strengths-based nursing could be implemented in Emma’s nursing care to address the healthcare needs raised in Emma’s case study (specifically identify which healthcare need you are addressing using evidence from one of the resources available to you presenting the Emma Gee case),
select one critical transition point in Emma’s journey (e.g. immediate post-surgical care while Emma was unconscious; nursing care following Emma regaining consciousness; admission to rehabilitation; discharge planning from rehabilitation; etc) and present a strengths-based nursing care plan for Emma that includes a holistic approach, a family focus and collaboration with Emma, her family and other healthcare professionals involved in Emma’s care,
summarise the nursing care practices and client outcomes you would expect from implementing strengths-based nursing care complementing the medical model focus,
offer your conclusion on how SBN can help achieve patient and family empowerment, health promotion and partnerships in healthcare in Australia.
The workshop workbook and the learning activities in the 2-day workshop will assist you to complete this assessment task. The first and second assessments will be formative towards completing assessment 3.
