NUR357 Primary Health Care Practice Management

Question:

To successfully complete this assessment task, you will need to select and examine a primary health nurse role. 

You will analyse how a nurse employed in this role would identify the health needs of their client group. 

By employing demographic characteristics of the client group, you will need to predict a relevant potential health issue. 

Using the health promotion strategies identified in the Ottawa Charter, other than the development of person skills, design and justify how the primary health care nurse could work to address the health issue on behalf of their client group. 

This task requires that you present your work in the form of a standard essay. The standard academic essay comprises three components – the introduction, the body of the essay and the conclusion. Headings are not included in a standard essay (headings are used when writing a report). 

The purpose of an introduction is to inform the reader of what they can expect to read about in the essay. Citations are not usually included in an introduction, unless providing a definition is essential.

The body of the essay is where you express your ideas in relation to the assessment task. These ideas need to be clustered together in small parcels of related information, i.e., paragraphs. It is good practice to commence a paragraph with a topic sentence, which provides the reader with an idea of what the paragraph is going to be about.

The order in which you present your paragraphs should assist the reader to logically follow your thinking or argument. Remember to support your thoughts with evidence, i.e., cite the source of information which has caused you to think the way you do. Use the marking rubric to guide the flow of information you present. This makes it easier for the examiner to follow. Anything that makes it easier to read your work will stop them from getting grumpy!

Finish your essay with a conclusion. This simply summarises the key points of your essay and should not include any new information.

Refer to the specific guidance section below for further instructions about what is expected and what you should do to ensure that you are addressing the assessment criteria. 

Understanding what is expected – Analyse the question.

When planning your assignment, it is useful to deconstruct the assessment question and marking rubric to see what the examiner is looking for you to include in your response. In this assessment task you are required to write an essay which has three components that need to be addressed. These components are easier to identify when you separate out the assessment instructions.

Let’s review the what the assignment question and marking rubric are informing you about what is required for this task.

  1. Select and examine a primary health nurse role. Analyse how a nurse employed in this role would identify the health needs of their client group.

This instruction informs you that you need to identify and describe the PHC nursing role you have selected, explaining why it can be considered a PHC role. You need to discuss what type of clients use the services provided by a nurse working in this role and how the nurse would determine the health concerns of the client group and the factors that may influence this. 

  1. Employing demographic characteristics of the client group, predict a relevant potential health issue.

This instruction informs you that you need to explore the common characteristics or factors influencing the health of the client group. Based on this information select a health issue that is likely to impact on people who share the identified characteristic/s. For example, the clients of a Women’s health nurse are women – 1 in 7 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime in Australia (National Breast Cancer Foundation, n.d.)

  1. Using the health promotion strategies identified in the Ottawa Charter, other than the development of person skills, design and justify how the primary health care nurse could work to address the health issue on behalf of their client group.

This instruction informs you that you need to consider which of the 4 remaining strategies for health promotion identified in the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion provides a suitable approach for the PHN to use to reduce the risk or improve the health outcomes of their client group. Describe what the proposed intervention activity/action is, how it will occur, and why this is likely to be successful.   

Read ‘addressing the assessment criteria information’ below for a detailed breakdown of what you will need to demonstrate to achieve each criterion.

You will be marked against the marking rubric designed for this assessment task. You are strongly encouraged to view the rubric before completing your submission.
