Assessment 2: 
Written assessment – scenario based nursing care plan 
Number of words: 1000 Value: 25% 
Due date: Monday, 25 September 2017 by 12 midnight – Electronic submission via VU Collaborate 
The written assessment task is related to Mr Peter Jones, your Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) case study patient in week three tutorial. The first part of this assessment task should include brief evidence-based justification of the three problems that have been used in the care plan. The second part is the care plan that must include a patient problem statement, goal, interventions, rationale, and evaluation. 
Further details: 
As a nurse caring for Mr Jones on the third post-operative day, using clinical reasoning skills, what would you identify as the top three priority problems for Mr Jones after a laparotomy and a newly created colostomy? You also need to consider the fact that Mr and Mrs Jones also need to cope with a cancer diagnosis; therefore, psychosocial implications of this new diagnosis should also be taken into consideration. 
For the three high priority problems chosen from Mr Jones’s case scenario, you will need to produce a care plan with a problem statement, goal, interventions, rationale, and evaluation. The tutorial discussion in week 3 will enable you to do a detailed case analysis on Mr Jones that may help identify some of the priority areas in the postoperative phase of his care. In addition, the week 1 lecture will help you understand the elements of care plan writing. 
Please note that the care plan submitted for this assignment needs to be an individual piece of work. 
This is not an essay and therefore does not require an introduction and conclusion. Headings should be used in the first section where you justify the three chosen problems. Answers should be written in a scholarly style. The Nursing Care Plan must be referenced and related specifically to Mr Jones. You should include as many interventions as you determine are necessary to fully manage the chosen problems. A simple problem may have fewer nursing interventions than a complex problem. Each of the intervention provided should be accompanied with a rationale and an evaluation. The nursing care plan can be set out in a table format. A proforma table has 
been provided on VU Collaborate for you to follow, however its’ use is not compulsory. 
All written assessments must align to scholarly standards.

Either no evidence of literature being consulted

NCP -Interventions 10 12 17 20 25 
Interventions listed are superficial and will not adequately meet the needs of Mr Jones. 
Multiple omissions of mandatory care exist 
Some mandatory 
interventions are listed. Some interventions suggested are not suitable or required for Mr Jones 's problems Most of the interventions listed are suitable for Mr Jones although other potentially useful interventions are omitted The suggested interventions are suitable to adequately manage Mr 
Jones 's problems A comprehensive range of suitable interventions are listed which could be expected to significantly impact Mr Jones's problems 
3 6 7 8 10 
NCP – Rationales The rationales provided are superficial and do not 
demonstrate understanding of the relationship between the problem identified and 
the interventions documented Some of the rationale statements are relevant and relate to the interventions but some repeat previously identified information Most of the rationales provided are logical and relate to the interventions and problems identified Rationales show an understanding of why the chosen intervention will be relevant and practical to 
the identified patient 
problem The rationales provided are relevant and theoretically related to the problem and intervention identified. Rationale show a comprehensive understanding of the care requirements 
3 5 7 8 10 
NCP – Evaluation There is no evidence that the care provided via interventions will be adequately evaluated Only some aspects of care are evaluated in a timely or purposeful manner. Some evaluations are irrelevant or inappropriate to Mr Jones and will not provide useful assessment Most of the aspects of care are evaluated using appropriate measures and in reasonable time frames and are relevant to Mr Jones Evaluation of effectiveness of the care is relevant and timely for Mr Jones Evaluation criteria and timing show a comprehensive understanding of the process of care delivery assessment and replanning for Mr Jones

Referencing is absent / unsystematic Some literature cited. Some attempt at referencing Literature cited is appropriate. 
Referencing is mainly accurate Literature cited is relevant yet not extensive. Referencing is accurate with minimal errors Literature cited is relevant and extensive. Referencing is consistently accurate
