This assessment will provide students with an opportunity to engage with a health consumer, to gain insight into the impact chronic illness and/or disability has on the consumers life, and to plan person-centered care in partnership with a consumer. Students will have the opportunity to apply specific frameworks to demonstrate critical thinking, clinical reasoning and the principles of caring for people with a chronic illness or disability. Written consent from your interviewee to conduct your interview is required.
You are required to conduct a phone or video call interview with a real person in your community who has a chronic illness or disability to discover the impact this has on their life. You will need to prepare for your interview. McGrath, Palmgren & Liljedahl (2019) suggest twelve steps for conducting research interviews; this article is linked on the NRSG372 reading list for Module one. Identify two (2) care priorities for your interviewee. Present each priority using the Levett-Jones (2018) Clinical Reasoning Cycle, completing the cycle for each priority as outlined in the paragraph structure section of this document. For each priority, identify and rationalise where the person sits on the Roper-LoganTierney (RLT) model of nursing independence to dependence continuum. It is expected that appropriate evidence-based literature will be used to support your assignment.
