Critical analysis of a selected scenario from Caseworld: Elizabeth Green

Order Description
This assignment is based on the Mrs. Elizabeth Green scenario from Case world. Students need to read the sections between admission and discharge. This assignment will be based on the post-angioplasty phase of the scenario. Students are required to work in groups to critically analyse the scenario and identify actual or potential issues relevant to nursing practice, including rationales and evidence to support their decisions. The students’ rationales must demonstrate knowledge of best practices, pathopharmacology, relevant clinical pathways, interprofessional roles, law and ethics, and mental health. Students should also refer to relevant independent learning pods in developing their rationales.
Students are required to reflect on how their critical analysis provides support for their achievement of ANMC competency unit 3: Practices within an evidence-based framework.
