Assignment Brief

How to Structure your assignment

Reflection 1

 

You need to reflect on your current role and the parameters of practice in which you currently work, linking your reflection to the NMC standards of proficiency for the Nursing Associate.  You will need to identify a TNA from within your group who works in a different field to you and discuss how their role differs from yours. (1000 words) LO 1

  • Choose a reflective model and identify which model you will be using to help you to structure your reflective writing.
  • Briefly discuss your current role and responsibilities.
  • Think about the TNA whom you have spoken to and discuss how their role differs to yours. You will need to choose a TNA that works in a different field to you. For e.g. If you work within the Mental Health field, you will need to talk to a TNA from Child, Adult or learning Disability.
  • Think about a situation that you have been in that challenged the parameters of your role, e.g. when you have been asked to deliver care that you were not confident or competent to deliver.
  • Using the NMC standards of proficiency for the Nursing Associate as a guide reflect on how you felt in this situation, describe your emotions and how you dealt with the situation.
  • Discuss how you might approach this situation differently in the future

Reflection 2

Reflect on a critical incident from your practice that presented an ethical or legal dilemma and identify how you ensured the delivery of safe, evidence based care and how you managed your own self-care within the situation. (1000 words) LO 2.

  • Provide an explanation of what is meant by ethical and legal issues in healthcare. 
  • Describe a situation from your practice that involved an ethical or legal dilemma. For example – consent not obtained correctly, withholding information from a patient or family, cultural needs not considered, patient coerced into treatment.
  • Reflect on your feelings and describe your own value base and beliefs about this situation.
  • Explain how you delivered safe and effective care in this situation, did you feel compromised or pressurised in this situation?
  • How did you manage your self-care – did you have someone to debrief with in a safe environment? Do you have any self-care techniques e.g. meditation.
  • Would you do anything differently in a similar situation?

Reflection 3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Identify a situation from practice where you were involved in clinical decision making that affected the health outcomes for a service user.  Reflect on how you demonstrated appropriate attitudes and behaviours and how you worked within the parameters of your role. Also identify how the care you provided was linked to evidence based literature. (1000 words) LO 3. Your mentor will complete a final feedback sheet which will confirm that you have had a professional discussion related to this reflection.

  • Describe a situation when you were directly involved in the planning and delivery of care that improved the health outcomes for a patient, this can be an acute situation e.g.
  1. you reported a sudden change in clinical   observations or the general health of a patient
  2.  any health education and advice that you gave that impacted on the patient’s health outcome, this can be psychological as well as physical health.
  • Reflect on the skills and knowledge and as well as your attitude and behaviour that supported the delivery of effective care for the patient and their family.  Why do you think the care was so effective, what did you do or say that had an impact on the patient and family?
  • Would you do anything differently in a similar situation?
  • Link the care you provided to relevant policies, procedures, evidence that guided your knowledge and practice
  • Discuss this situation with your practice assessor, practice supervisor or manager and ask for feedback. They will need to sign your reflection to confirm that you demonstrated the knowledge, skills and attitudes that you have recorded in your reflection. This must be included in your reflective portfolio in order to achieve learning outcome 3.

Confidentiality must be maintained at all times.  Failure to do so will result in a technical fail with a mark of 1% being awarded.

If you refer to a patient/client by name a pseudonym (made up name) must be used and identified as such by including a clear statement to that effect. Please do not include names of organisations. Demonstrate and define the role and parameters of the nursing associate and differentiate between the different fields of healthcare

Structure and Presentation of your assignment:

  • Please submit your work as one word document, cut and paste the reflections one after the other using a sub heading reflection 1 etc.
  • Please use double line spacing and Arial font size 12
  • Please ensure that you include an electronic submission front sheet with your student number, the module code and the module title.
  • Please state your actual word count rather than the required word count (Your reference list and citations are not included in your word count), on your front sheet.
  • Please ensure that you adhere to the Harvard-style referencing system.  Guidance on this is available to download from the library website.
  • You will need to submit an practice assessor sign off sheet to support reflection 3.  This is available in the assessment section on the Moodle site & can be pasted into your document.
