Discuss (briefly) the patients past medical history and medical issue/reason for perioperative care

Subject Intended Learning Outcomes (linked to assessment task) 1 Perform in-depth assessments and make & develop informed, independent judgements to develop plans in response to complex scenarios 2 Apply specialty knowledge, skills and/or equipment/technology to complex scenarios to the depth and breadth required of a beginning specialist. Outline The aim of this assessment is to synthesise your understanding of current research evidence and its application to practice in the perioperative environment. With reference to current evidence-based practice, you are required to undertake a literature review; this paper will demonstrate your ability to link current research literature to clinical practice in the context of a patient receiving perioperative interventions. Instructions Choose a patient who has undergone a perioperative intervention, and critically evaluate this care. A perioperative intervention may include (but is not limited to): Choice of surgical approach (laparoscopic OR open) Choice of anaesthesia approach (regional OR general anaesthesia) Lines: such as CVC, arterial line, CVP monitoring etc Pharmacological therapy *Be sure to choose a very specific topic to undertake your literature review on, to ensure you conduct a succinct review of relevant evidence-based literature and to adhere to the word count. Is the laparoscopic approach to general surgery the gold standard of practice X Does laparoscopic hernia repair result in reduced recovery time? YES Written Assessment Template 1. Introduction outline the scope of the paper, the topic to be discussed and outline/summarise what the paper will discuss (one paragraph). 2. Discuss (briefly) the patients past medical history and medical issue/reason for perioperative care 3. Discuss the specific intervention or aspect of care you have chosen, outlining a rationale for the care given and link to relevant history/medical issue or condition. 4. Conduct a literature review of current research: a. summarise your findings of the literature review b. provide a statement supporting your findings*. 5. Conclusion 6. References (separate page) *Statement supporting your findings: The literature not only needs to be summarised, the quality/reliability of the literature available and being reviewed needs to be evaluated/critically reviewed. Is there a breadth of quality literature supporting the chosen topic? Or is the literature sparse, with predominantly discussion/commentary pieces rather than systematic reviews or RCTs. As a general rule, try to avoid the use of journal sources over seven years old unless it can be shown that you are referencing a foundation work. Remember that you must maintain the patients anonymity at all times. All information pertaining to the patient discussed including venue of care, places, dates, times, test results and events must be de- identified. A pseudonym must be used for your patient.Show more
