Relevance Of Case

  • Why is this case important? What are the reasons for choosing this case? Why would graduate RNs be interested in reading about this?

Case Presentation – Nursing Assessment

  • Provide a comprehensive case description including the salient patient history, physical assessment data and any relevant investigations using an appropriate assessment framework.
  • Make sure your nursing assessment is person-centred.   
  • Be as descriptive as possible and use data from a range of sources if possible (e.g., handover reports, patient history, physical assessment, patient charts, results of investigations, nursing/medical assessments previously undertaken).
  • Remember you must maintain patient anonymity and confidentiality.

This section relates to “Collect cues/information” from the Clinical Reasoning Cycle (CRC).

Process the information (from CRC) (this is a process you will engage in but do not write on your abstract)
