Task
This part of the assessment task requires you to develop a nursing care plan for the patient in the
provided case study. In order to do this, you will need to consider the role of the interdisciplinary
team and registered nurse in the management of this patient.
In addition to a brief introduction and conclusion, Part B of your report should include:
– A discussion of the guiding principles of health coaching, self-management, empowerment and
advocacy in the collaborative management of the patient and her family, and how these can improve
outcomes for them.
– Develop a nursing care plan that contains three (3) nursing interventions that would be appropriate
for the patient at this stage of her presentation.
– Each intervention must be supported by a rationale that explains how it is keeping with the guiding
principles discussed in your report and/or how it is consistent with current best practice.
– Discuss the role of the registered nurse in the acute medical ward in the management of this patient
and her family. Provided an analysis of three (3) ways in which the registered nurse could collaborate
with other members of the interdisciplinary team to co-ordinate the provision of holistic and

comprehensive care to the patient and her family. This would include referrals to and involvement of
care providers both in the acute and discharge settings for services that may be required when patient
returns home.
Your report must adhere to academic writing conventions. Sub-headings may be used, but dot points
and tables should not be included in your report.
You should support your discussion with a MINIMUM 12 recent (less than 7 years old) and credible
sources. Credible sources include, peer reviewed journal articles, text-books, evidence summaries, best
practice guidelines, government documents, health facility clinical guidelines and policies/procedures
and websites containing content aimed at health professionals. Please note that lecture slides will not
be considered to be appropriate sources for this assessment task.
Please note that you can and should refer to any relevant information from Part A of your report
without needing to repeat it in this assessment item. For example, “as discussed previously in Part
A of this report….”
Case Study for Part B
Angela has presented to her GP with increasing shortness of breath, increased sputum production,
which has changed to dark yellow with green staining. She has been feeling unwell for several days
and delayed seeking any intervention as her daughter was away and she has had 3 grandchildren
staying. Her SaO2 is 84% on room air, temperature 38.4 C, she is significantly dyspnoeic, struggling
to say more than 5 words without a breath. Her pulse is 104bpm and her BP remains elevated at
162/102mmHg. Angela admits she has not been diligent in taking her medication for this as she has
heard friends say this medication gave them a cough and she was worried about it impacting on her
COPD.
The GP has admitted her to hospital for IV antibiotics and oral prednisolone, salbutamol and atrovent
nebulisers and oxygen therapy to maintain SpO2 above 92%. Angela is quite upset at being
hospitalised as she feels it will inconvenience her family and leave her daughters struggling for
childcare.
Rationale
It is known that chronic disease is the leading cause of death across the world (Johnson & Chang,
2014). Nurses need to be able to provide care to all health consumers, with a significant role in
assessing a person, planning care, communicating with colleagues and ensuring that the holistic needs
are met and evaluated. The ongoing nature of the conditions can result in longer term debilitating
outcomes if not addressed appropriately. Children, young people, adults and older adults all
experience the full range of health issues yet manage them differently.
This assessment task addresses the following subject learning outcomes:
Plan nursing care for patients with complex co-morbidities demonstrating rationale for how
one affects the other (NMBA 1.1, 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, 4.1,4.2,4.3,4.4, 5.1,5.2,5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 6.1,
7.1,7.2, 7.3).
Plan nursing care of a patient with a co-morbidity in consultation with individuals/groups
significant others and the interdisciplinary health care team in the clinical setting (NMBA
2.6,2.8, 3.6, 6.3)
Collaborate with the interdisciplinary health care team to provide comprehensive nursing

care in the clinical setting (NMBA 2.6,2.7, 2.8, 3.3,3.6,4.3, 5.2, 6.3, 6.4).
