Aim of assessment
The aim of this assessment is to increase students understanding of how microorganisms can cause health breakdown and the role of relevant pharmacological interventions in the recovery processes. Students will explore various modes of transmission relevant characteristics of pathogens and the importance of breaking the chain of infection. This assessment facilitates the development of the following skills: critical appraisal of the nurses role in infection control literature searching and academic writing and referencing.
Details
Students are provided with a hypothetical case study to read. They then must answer the questions provided relating to the study. Students should draw on relevant literature provided to support their answers and reference using the APA 6th Ed. style.
Please note:
Students must respond to each of the questions using academic writing. It is anticipated that the work will be presented in a question / answer format using full sentences and paragraphs. Students MUST use the electronic template (provided by University) for this assignment. A soft word copy must be accessed from the Unit vUWS site.
As a guide please aim to write around 35 words per allocated mark for each question. Thus if a question is worth 10 marks aim to answer it in around 350 words.
There is a word limit of 1200 words. Use your computer to total the number of words used in your assignment. However do not include the reference list at the end of your assignment in the word count. In-text citations will be included in the additional 10% word count. If you exceed the word limit by more than 10% the marker will stop marking at 1200 words plus 10%.
Case Study:
Brian (88 years old) is a resident at a high dependency aged care facility (nursing home). He has developed infectious conjunctivitis in his right eye. On examination his eye was found to be red and swollen with a purulent and sticky discharge. His vision was unaffected; however he did complain that his eye was painful. The doctor prescribed gentamicin eye drops which were to be administered to both eyes.
Using the supplied template (to be accessed from the Assessment tab in the Units vUWS site) answer the following questions:
Q1. Background of the case study (Total: 5 marks)
1.1 What is infectious conjunctivitis? (1 mark)
1.2 Of the four micro-organisms listed below justify which one is more likely to be the cause of Brians eye infection. Indicate why the other micro-organisms from the list are less likely to cause the infection. (4 marks)
Legionella pneumophila
Plasmodium ovale
Adenovirus
Escherichia coli
Q2. Mechanism of action and adverse reactions (Total: 5 marks)
2.1 Describe the mechanism of action of gentamicin (4 marks)
2.2 Name two possible adverse reactions to this drug (1 mark)
Q3. Mediators of signs and symptoms (Total: 10 marks).
3.1-3.3 Identify and discuss the various chemical and cellular mediators which are responsible for any three signs or symptoms of Brians condition (10 marks).
Q4. Infection control issues (Total 5 marks)
4.1-4.2 Identify and discuss two infection control issues associated with high dependency aged care facilities that can contribute to the spread of conjunctivitis (5 marks).
Q5. Transmission of infection (Total: 5 marks)
5.1 Mary who resides in the room next door was diagnosed with the same eye infection 4 days later. Describe how the organism could have been transmitted from Brians eye to Marys eye (describe the chain of infection that could have occurred form Brians eye to Marys eye) (5 marks).
Q6. Breaking the chain of infection (Total: 5 marks)
6.1 Describe two procedures nurses will need to undertake to prevent the infection from Brians eye being transmitted to another individual. Clearly explain how each procedure will effectively break the chain of infection (5 marks).
Q7. Presentation: 5 marks. See template
The template plus the prescribed ref list have a word count of 269 and 188 words respectively (total=447 words). The case study allows for 1200 words (+/- 10%) therefore your total maximum word count would be 1200 + 447 = 1647 plus 10% of 1200 words or 120 words which equals 1767 words. Subsequently the template and reference list will account for about 27-30 % similarity that you neednt worry about. You can also see which highlighted components of your work are from the references and template so can easily focus on just the parts that show similarity outside of these two entities.
Resources
Only the following eight resources may be used and cited in this case study. Some of these can be accessed online as indicated.

Demonstrate an awareness of the functioning and integration of the major body systems

musculoskeletal system and the nervous system
Paper instructions:
Brief:
You will present a clear and concise 20 minute presentation on the interactions between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. You will also consider the impact that this integration may have on thermoregulation and how this affect is mediated within the two systems.
Assessment Criteria:
1. A clear concise well written and well presented talk that covers both learning outcomes and is appropriately referenced (85%).
2. Detailed and well referenced script that support the assumptions of your talk (15%)
The writer must be English as it is to be written in English not American or Chinese English. Would rather that not so many American (uni/college) websites were referenced either I hope you know what I mean by this.
HAVE INCLUDED A FILE called example of a past paper that shows what harvard referencing should look like called EXAMPLE PLEASE LOOK AT THIS.
YOU MUST LOOK AT JOURNALS FOR THIS. Where possible reference from up to date journals (from the last four years) and reference from the suggested reading list at the bottom of the instructions. As a rule use around 1 reference (from different sources) for every 100 words use journals mainly up to date books and try to stay away from webpages.
Assignment Title: Presentation
LOOK AT THE FILE Suggested layout for presentation. The presentation can include an activity for the audience clips/ videos (no longer than 5 min) and time for questions and answers. It is more of a micro-teach than an academic presentation. Aim to be talking for around 7 minutes before playing a good resource and feedback and/ or questions/ video clips.
Remember to keep to the suggested layout for presentation file.
0-7
What I need you to do is provide the script along with powerpoint; this script must be close to 900 words to last 7 mins. You will also need to include a powerpoint presentation with slides that will go along with the script. The script must be numbered according to the appropriate slide so that the reader will know when to change slides. Where it says introduce topic and discuss your particular angle of interest (on the interactions between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system) for this you can choose this. Though I suggest choosing to discuss interactions between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system when under the influence of an illegal drug such as opium or sleep deprivation (if that interests you too).
Do not make introductions to the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system as there are no marks for that in the brief. You could however introduce the interactions between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system.
Remember to discuss also consider the impact that this integration may have on thermoregulation and how this affect is mediated within the two systems. From the brief.
Do not write a general script of the interactions between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. Write a script with the angle of interest in mind.
7-13
I suggest choosing to link in a relevant video to the angle of interest into a slide in the powerpoint presentation for this (no longer than 5 min). With small intro/conclusion in script about 100 words.
13-16
Summing up your particular area of focus and suggesting further reading Script is about 350 words also include a relevant slide for this into the powerpoint presentation.
16-20
Questions and answers along with slides script is around 150 words.
20
End with a slide of the reference list.
Learning Outcomes:
Demonstrate an awareness of the functioning and integration of the major body systems
Develop awareness of the processes involved in maintaining homeostasis
Rationale:
Key skills at level 5 include the ability to research relevant information and assimilate an appropriate response to a set question. This must be achieved in a clear and concise manner which will depend on your ability to communicate your findings. This assignment assesses these skills in the context of an oral presentation. The set question allows you to direct your research and link the course content with the learning objectives of the course in a peer-reviewed format. This assignment aligns with two learning objectives of the course which you must ensure are responded to in your submission.

.Describe the requirements for the project.Explain the tangible measures for acceptance criteria used to achieve project success

Assignment: Project Management Planning Because many aspects of health care operations are changing health care administrators oversee a wide variety of projects. These can include logistical projects such as moving a department to a new facility technology-related projects such as introducing a new system or piece of equipment or process-related projects such as initiating new procedures for patient discharge. If the project has any degree of complexity it will benefit from a project management approach. Administrators and managers in health care need to have a working understanding of project management: why it is important what it accomplishes and the repercussions on the organization if its basic tenets are ignored or not followed. Within project management the project plan is the cornerstone of successful execution of a project. The project plan is designed to guide the process and execution of a project. For this Assignment you will develop a project plan using as your focus a work-related project you are doing now or will be doing in the future. Part 1: Service Level Agreement It is suggested that the project you select be manageable in scope and not overly complex. You will assume that the objectives and scope of the project you have selected have been vetted and approved. The next step is to develop a project plan. You will develop a project management plan that will walk through key steps of the project management process. The objective of this Assignment is not a deep dive into the full intricacies of project management. Rather it is to ensure that as a health care administrator you have a solid theory and practical knowledge of key aspects of the project management process. For Part 1 of this Assignment you will create a Service Level Agreement (35 pages) which includes the following: Project Description Purpose and Objectives: The project description delineates key aspects of a project. In 12 pages your project plan should:Describe the project and explain the purpose and justification for the project.Explain the goals and objectives of the project.Describe the requirements for the project.Explain the tangible measures for acceptance criteria used to achieve project success.Project Scope: The project scope defines the scope of the project and how the scope will be managed. In 23 pages your project plan should:Summarize in detail the expected deliverables for the project.Explain the acceptance criteria for the project.Explain the project assumptions risks and constraints.Roles and Responsibilities: By definition a project is a unique undertaking with a beginning and an end point. One responsibility of management is to determine who will be a part of the project team (including designation of a project manager). Ask yourself Who needs to be on this team to ensure that project goals are successfully met? Consider as well the importance of communication among team members. What communication needs will each individual have? With whom will they communicate and how?Using the Project Roles and Responsibilities Matrix template in the Learning Resources list the names* and titles of all individuals or entities involved in the project. Indicate whether each stakeholder is internal or external to the project organization.Note: For privacy purposes please use pseudonyms.Identify the internal and external stakeholders for a project.Distinguish the roles and responsibilities of the project stakeholders.Explain how to communicate with project stakeholders. Part 2: Project Schedule There are many different methodologies for planning and scheduling a project. For this Assignment you will develop a Gantt chart that depicts key project activities time allotted for each activity and when each activity is scheduled to begin. To do so you will need to consider dependencies. Some activities will be sequential others may be simultaneous and some may overlap. Note: You may create your own Gantt chart using Excel or search for and download a Gantt chart template. Using a Gantt chart construct a project schedule.In 23 paragraphs of your project plan explain the estimating techniques used to develop your project schedule. Provide rationale for why these techniques will be effective. Part 3: Strategies for Maintaining the Project Budget A project begins with an approved budget. Too often however unless the budget is meticulously managed budget overruns occur. Health care administrators must ensure that the project management process includes careful oversight on spending. In 23 pages describe the project budget key success factors including the following: Analyze at least three strategies that can be applied for due diligence and maintaining oversight of the project budget.Explain at least two challenges each of these strategies might present and identify opportunities for improvement.Compare the positive outcomes that might result from each strategy. Part 4: Risk Management Quality Management and Sustainability Even the most straightforward and well-planned project can be impacted by unexpected circumstances. Anticipating risks is a key part of project management and one that a health care administrator or manager must ensure is taken into consideration by the project team. Additionally If not carefully monitored budget and time constraints can take a toll on the quality of a project. Create a 24 page risk management and quality management plan which includes the following: Describe how you plan to manage risks for your project.Analyze strategies for managing quality within your project.Analyze strategies for sustainability of your project.Describe at least two tools and/or techniques you plan to use to manage quality and defend why you chose those tools.
