Diabetes Patient Concept Map Week 8
Diabetes Patient Concept Map Week 8
Create a concept map graphic and write a 2-4 page narrative on the patient scenario presented in Assessment Case Study: Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Concept Map. Base your report on the information provided in the case study and your own research of 3-5 evidence-based resources.
Evidence-based practice is a key skill in the tool kit of the master’s-prepared nurse. Its goal is to ensure that health care practitioners are using the best available evidence to ensure that patients are receiving the best care possible (Godshall, 2015). In essence, evidence-based practice is all about ensuring quality care.
In this assessment, you will apply evidence-based practice and personalized care concepts to ensure quality care and improve the health of a single patient. The concept map that you will create is an example of a visual tool that you can use for patient and family education.

The charge nurse at the wellness center has sent you an email to request that you review a patient file before the patient arrives at the clinic. She has asked you to put together a concept map for your patient’s care plan. The concept map is intended to help you think through the best strategy for your patient’s care and for subsequent use for patient education. In addition, the nurse needs a narrative report that describes your patient with up to five diagnoses, in order of urgency. Diabetes Patient Concept Map Week 8
You are a nurse at a community wellness center who has received a request for patient case review and preparation for an upcoming appointment.
Review the Assessment Case Study: Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Concept Map media activity.
Create your concept map and narrative as separate parts of your document. Be sure to note where you must include your evidence-based support and clarify your strategies for communicating information to the patient and the patient’s family.
Integrate relevant evidence from 3–5 current scholarly or professional sources to support your assertions.
Part 1: Concept Map
Develop a graphical concept map for the patient based on the best available evidence for treating your patient’s health, economic, and cultural needs.
Many organizations use the spider style of concept maps (see the Taylor and Littleton-Kearney article for an example).
The Assessment Case Study: Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Concept Map, which includes an example of a concept map, may help you prepare your assessment.
If a particular style of concept map is used in your current care setting, you may use it in this assessment.
