Case Study

Case Study

Case Study 1.

Please review the video above as it will provide you with an opportunity to immerse yourself in the role of a nurse addressing tobacco use during routine patient care. In doing so, reflect on what you have learned about tobacco use and the role that nurses and other interdisciplinary team members play in helping to assist tobacco users with quitting. While viewing, it is also important to keep in mind that tobacco users move through stages of change in the process of quitting. They move from pre-contemplation to contemplation, contemplation to preparation; preparation to abstinence; abstinence to maintenance. Every stage requires a different strategy by a nurse.

After watching the video, and reflecting on the information presented, address each of the following questions.

  • What are the common symptoms associated with an exacerbation of COPD?
  • What assessment techniques will you use to assess Mary?
  • Identify smoking strategies that would be appropriate for each of the encounters that Mary had with the nurse throughout the video that could have been used to assist Mary in quitting smoking.
  • Find a resource in your community that could assist Mary. Start by searching the Internet for your local health department’s website. What services are available to Mary? Briefly describe the services that the state quit line provides. Does it meet the 4 As? Is it accessible, acceptable, affordable, or available for Mary?
  • What will you do to follow-up on Mary’s smoking cessation process?

Important:

The respiratory system is often a major focus in health assessment due to the critical nature of breathing, ventilation and gas exchange. There are many lifestyle and risk factors that affect respiratory health, the one discussed here is smoking. We often encounter patients like Mary. Please be sure to address all of the questions above. Remember, in order to earn maximum credit, you must cite and reference the textbook or lesson and an outside source.

I attached the video for question 1

Question 2:

Select one of the following trends and discuss your understanding of this trend in healthcare and its potential impact on your practice as a nurse. What are the legal, privacy, and ethical considerations of this trend?

  • Nanotechnology
  • Consumer health informatics (CHI)
  • Telehealth (or telenursing)/virtual healthcare
  • Social media healthcare applications
  • Health-focused wearable technology
  • eHealth

Important:

  • CO 6: Discuss the principles of data integrity, professional ethics, and legal requirements related to data security, regulatory requirements, confidentiality, and client’s right to privacy. (PO 6)
  • CO 7: Examine the use of information systems to document interventions related to achieving nurse sensitive outcomes. (PO 7)
