Hydrocephalus on an infant

 

Hydrocephalus on an infant

Parent Teaching Project (5%)

A critical component of pediatric nursing is teaching parents how to care for their child, particularly during an illness or after a procedure.  To develop this skill, the student will complete a parent teaching project.

Students will be assigned a topic and developmental stage upon which to focus.  With that information, the student will need to determine what health education (AKA parent/patient teaching) needs to be conducted prior to this virtual patient being discharged.  The students will then role-play the teaching session, using a student chosen by the instructor as the “parent” and with the rest of the clinical group observing.

 

The project must include:

  • A 1-page attached document discussing the assessment of a parents’ readiness to learn and barriers to learning
  • The critical components of home care for the assigned topic
  • Developmentally appropriate instruction-
    • The teaching reflects the developmental level of the parent and patient. (e.g., home care instructions for an infant should include the food appropriate for an infant rather than a school aged child).
  • A bibliography containing no fewer than three professional journal articles with one being a pediatric specific article.  The articles must be less than five years old.  Use of APA format for references is expected.
  • A clear, creative, logical progression geared to a learner at an 8th grade level
