You have been presented with a number of patient case files in the Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Care media piece.

Preparation

You have been presented with a number of patient case files in the Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Care media piece. You reviewed each case, selected one case for further research, and created draft evidence-based concept map to illustrate an approach to individualized care for the patient. In this assessment, you will build upon and refine your draft concept map and develop a supporting narrative.

Create your concept map and narrative as separate documents. Be sure to note the areas where you need to include your evidence-based support and where you need to make clear your strategies for communicating information to the patient and the patient’s family.

Note: Many organizations use the spider style of concept maps (see the Taylor & Littleton-Kearney article for an example). Also, if a specific style of concept map is used in your current care setting, you may use it in this assessment.

Create your concept map and narrative as separate documents. Be sure to note the areas where you need to include your evidence-based support and where you need to make clear your strategies for communicating information to the patient and the patient’s family.

Requirements

Note: The requirements outlined below correspond to the grading criteria in the scoring guide, so be sure to address each point. In addition, you may want to review the performance level descriptions for each criterion to see how your work will be assessed.

Supporting Evidence and APA Style

Integrate relevant evidence from 3–5 current scholarly or professional sources to support your assertions.

  • Apply correct APA formatting to all in-text citations and references.
  • Attach a reference list to your narrative.
Concept Map
  • Develop a concept map for the individual patient, based upon the best available evidence for treating your patient’s health, economic, and cultural needs.
Narrative

Develop a narrative (2–4 pages) for your concept map.

  • Analyze the needs of your patient and their family, and determine how those needs will influence a patient-centered concept map.
    • Consider how your patient’s economic situation and relevant environmental factors may have contributed to your patient’s current condition or affect their future health.
    • Consider how your patient’s culture or family should influence your concept map.
  • Justify the value and relevance of the evidence you used as the basis of your concept map.
    • Explain why your evidence is valuable and relevant to your patient’s case.
    • Explain why each piece of evidence is appropriate for both the health issue you are trying to correct and for the unique situation of your patient and their family.
  • Propose relevant and measurable criteria for evaluating the degree to which the desired outcomes of your concept map were achieved.
    • Explain why your proposed criteria are appropriate and useful measures of success.
  • Explain how you will communicate specific aspects of the concept map to your patient and their family in an ethical, culturally sensitive, and inclusive way. Ensure that your strategies:
    • Promote honest communications.
    • Facilitate sharing only the information you are required and permitted to share.
    • Are mindful of your patient’s culture.
    • Enable you to make complex medical terms and concepts understandable to your patient and their family, regardless of language, disabilities, or level of education.

Additional Requirements

  • Be sure to include both documents when you submit your assessment.

Grading Rubric:

1. Design an individualized, patient-centered concept map, based upon the best available evidence for treating a patient’s specific health, economic, and cultural needs.

Passing Grade: Designs an individualized, patient-centered concept map, based upon the best available evidence for treating a patient’s specific health, economic, and cultural needs, and identifies assumptions on which the plan is based.

2. Analyze the needs of a patient, and those of their family, with regard to how those needs will influence a patient-centered concept map.
