Course Project – managed care contracts issues

The paper should critically analyze the issues related to your topic within the context of the current healthcare environment, and also considering future directions in U.S. medical care.

It is expected that the final version of your Course Project will be 7–10 pages in length, with 6–8 sources identified.

  • Your Course Project should be 7–10 pages in length, with 10-point font, and double-spaced. Include a cover page, table of contents, introduction, body of the report, summary/conclusion, and works cited.
  • Even though this is not a scientific writing assignment, and is mostly creative in nature, references are still very important. At least six authoritative outside references are required. These should be listed on the last page, titled Works Cited.
  • Appropriate citations are required.
  • All DeVry University policies are in effect, including the plagiarism policy.
  • Papers are due during Week 7 of this course.
  • Any questions about this paper may be discussed in the weekly Q & A Discussion topic.
  • This Course Project is worth 320 total points and will be graded on quality of research topic, quality of paper information, use of citations, grammar, and sentence structure.

Discussion Question 1

You will be providing care for patients of different cultures. Choose a diet that would be cultural specific for a patient with new onset of hypertension. Identify the culture of the patient and discuss how you would explain this diet to your patient. For example, how would you adapt the D-A-S-H (dietary approaches to stop hypertension) diet for a Hispanic patient?

Discussion Question 2

Briefly discuss the symptoms of right- and left-sided HF. What common primary care diagnoses result in the development of HF symptoms? Discuss the treatment of one of these common causes. What are some serious signs and symptoms of acute HF and the findings you may encounter during auscultation? When would you refer to cardiology for evaluation and treatment? Also discuss the criteria used to make a diagnosis of HF and interpretation of any diagnostic results that would be obtained. Consider your practicum experiences and discuss them as they relate to the topic.

Discussion Question 3

Discuss the definitions of ASD and VSD. What are the symptoms and the assessment findings you may encounter among children? What are the symptoms and physical examing findings from ascultation for each in adults? Briefly discuss treatment options for children and adults with ASD and VSD.

Annotated bibliographies

For this assignment you must provide a critical evaluation on that research through an annotated bibliography. An annotated bibliography is a brief summary and analysis of the journal article reviewed. For more information on annotated bibliographies please visit Purdue’s OWL: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/614/01/

A total of four annotated bibliographies are to be submitted (not to exceed one page each). The articles must come from nursing scholarly literature and may not be older than 5 years since publication. Please note that the articles must be research based and reflect a quantitative methodology

  • Explanation of the main purpose and scope of the cited work  The purpose of the research is typically identified in the first few paragraphs of the article
  • Brief description of the research conducted This means to briefly described the research study, the sample, the type of research, the results of the study and outcomes and implications for nursing
  • Value and significance of the work (e.g., study’s findings, scope of the research project) as a contribution to the subject under consideration How does this study contribute to what your potential research study
  • Possible shortcomings or bias in the work These may be listed under limitations of the study or in the conclusion section
  • Conclusions or observations reached by the author What are the conclusions of the study? These are listed at the end of the article
  • Summary as to why this research lends evidence to support the potential problem identified specific to your role option. A few sentences as to why this may support the research problem as it applies to your role, N.P. Nurse Educator etc.

DQ1 Identify two areas of nursing practice, which evidence-based practice has improved patient outcomes. State the study and its impact on patient care. How have these findings changed your nursing practice? Please support your response with a minimum of two supporting peer reviewed articles.

PICOT statement

 Details:

The first step of the EBP process is to develop a question from the nursing practice problem of interest.

Select a practice problem of interest to use as the focus of your research.

Start with the patient and identify the clinical problems or issues that arise from clinical care.

Following the PICOT format, write a PICOT statement in your selected practice problem area of interest, which is applicable to your proposed capstone project.

The PICOT statement will provide a framework for your capstone project (the project students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program of study).

Conduct a literature search to locate research articles focused on your selected practice problem of interest. This literature search should include both quantitative and qualitative peer-reviewed research articles to support your practice problem.

Select six peer-reviewed research articles which will be utilized through the next 5 weeks as reference sources. Be sure that some of the articles use qualitative research and that some use quantitative research. Create a reference list in which the six articles are listed. Beneath each reference include the article’s abstract. The completed assignment should have a title page and a reference list with abstracts.

Suggestions for locating qualitative and quantitative research articles from credible sources:

  1. Use a library database such as CINAHL Complete for your search.
  2. Using the advanced search page check the box beside “Research Article” in the “Limit Your Results” section.
  3. When setting up the search you can type your topic in the top box, then add quantitative or qualitative as a search term in one of the lower boxes. Research articles often are described as qualitative or quantitative.

To narrow/broaden your search, remove the words qualitative and quantitative and include words that narrow or broaden your main topic. For example: Diabetes and pediatric and dialysis. To determine what research design was used, review the abstract and the methods section of the article. The author will provide a description of data collection using qualitative or quantitative methods.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
