Professional Context

Nurses are leaders in problem identification and solution, planning and implementing patient care strategies to address problems in the home, hospital, and community. This assessment will help you develop a problem statement for a patient, family, or population health concern.

Instructions

Throughout this capstone course, you will be investigating a patient, family, or population health problem relevant to your practice. For this assessment, you will identify the problem that you will address throughout your clinical practicum in this course, as well as begin to establish your evidence and research base to plan, implement, and share findings related to your project. The  Problem Identification Template [DOC] will guide you through development of a problem statement, evidence collection and analysis, and best practices to help you create your implementation plan for the second assessment in this course.

Your submission for this assessment will be the completed template. When working through the template, you may use the resources provided in this course; however, most of your research and search for evidence will be conducted by you. Use the Capella University Library, professional organization and government resources, and relevant organizational best practices as sources of evidence. This is the capstone course for your BSN degree; your goal is to demonstrate your achievement of the program outcomes through your work on this project.

The following are some health issues that would be appropriate for your project:

  • Diabetes self-management.
  • Hypertension management and prevention.
  • Medication reconciliation within a family or group.
  • Parkinson’s disease support group.
  • Patient family education communication improvements.
  • Postoperative home care.

This list is by no means exhaustive. You should choose a patient, family, or population health issue that is relevant to your practice and organization; you must be able to study the problem in your clinical practicum effectively.

Scoring Guide Criteria

Your submission will be assessed based on the following criteria:

  • Define a patient, family, or population health problem that is relevant to personal practice.
  • Analyze evidence from the literature and professional sources to define and guide nursing actions related to a health problem.
  • Propose strategies to improve patient or population outcomes related to a health problem.
  • Reflect on state board nursing practice standards relevant to a selected health problem.
  • Communicate professionally in writing that is clear and logically organized, with correct grammar, spelling, and use of APA style.

Please identify your relationship to the  patient (friend and family) and how you made contact with the individual. Remember to only use the individual’s initials in your assessment to protect privacy.

CORE ELMS

Completion of this course requires a remote rather than a face-to-face clinical practicum. You are required to log your time in the CORE ELMS system just as you have for past courses with clinical interaction. The CORE ELMS link is located in the left-hand navigation pane.

Additional Requirements

  • Length of submission: Use the provided template. Most submissions will be 2 to 4 pages. You do not need to include a title page. Be sure to complete the reference page at the end of the template.
  • Number of references: Cite a minimum of 5 sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your central ideas. Resources should be no more than five years old.
  • APA formatting: Make sure that in-text citations and reference list follow current APA style.

Portfolio Prompt: Remember to save the assessment to your ePortfolio. After you complete your program you may want to consider leveraging your Portfolio as part of a job search or other demonstration of your academic competencies.
