Nursing Care of a Person with Angina

Nursing Care of a Person with Angina

Mrs Brown (54 years) is brought to the emergency department by her husband following two episodes of chest pain, lasting approximately 15 minutes each, at work. She

reports she has had increasing frequency of angina in the last few weeks. She does however admit to not taking her medication as required as she believed she had

recovered from angina. Mrs Brown is admitted to hospital, to the medical ward, six hours later for further investigation. Her husband and family accompany her. She has

a history of hypertension, her weight is 120kg, and she currently has an executive management job. Observations on admission are temperature 37.2oC, pulse 110b/min,

respirations 24 respirations/min, and BP 146/89mmHg. You are working as a new graduate registered nurse on this ward. When you introduce yourself to Mrs Brown she

tells you how stressed she is in her current job with numerous projects to develop and manage and tells you “I have no time to exercise anymore and I?m so busy and so

tired my husband and I just end up eating take away a few times a week as I can?t be bothered cooking.” Later that evening you answer Mrs Brown?s nurse call bell and

she tells you she has chest pain now. She states she just went for a walk around the ward and started to feel a bit short of breath. She rubs her sternum and left

upper arm. She states her pain score is 9 out of 10. When you ask her to describe her pain she states “It feels like someone?s squeezing or pressing down on my chest,

it feels really tight.” She has an anxious look on her face, is pale and you can see her face is a little sweaty.

•    For the first problem (800 words): Briefly explain how it relates to the patient’s assessment data. Identify TWO priority nursing interventions to address the

problem. Discuss briefly the nursing interventions you will implement (explain what is involved in implementing the intervention, why it is suitable, any relevant

positive or negative aspects/considerations) and support/justify the use of these interventions with reference to current evidence-based literature. Outline the

evaluation criteria/data that would indicate that each intervention is improving or resolving the identified problem.

1 Chose a topic wisely. Make sure that it is clear and of a sensible size; in reality not too big. It is also helpful, but not obligatory, to use a topic from your

eight week placement so that your work is really grounded in practice.
2 You can look at an area of hospital policy and evaluate its evidence base: this could be a care pathway, a hospital policy, a computerised care plan.
Or: you could look at a more general topic of nursing care, for example injection technique, and look at the evidence behind it.
It may be helpful to use the PICO formulation to clearly define an issue.
(PICO is: population; which patient group you will be looking at: gender or age, community or hospital settings etc.
Intervention: what test or treatment you are going to look at: medication, risk assessment tool etc. This could be a lot of different actions.
Comparison; Possibly an optional part of your PICO. If you want to compare a new intervention with the current standard practice for example.
Outcome: How you are going to measure how successful the intervention is: this could be in terms of morbidity or mortality rates, number of pressure sores etc.). Use

PICO to help your identify a clear problem, but do not be ruled by it.
3 You need to look at the evidence base for your chosen topic. This will require good literature searching skills and a clear account of the search strategy you used.

This will involve a discussion of the volume of research or writing about the topic, the time frame of this body of evidence and the kind of research: qualitative or

quantitative.
4 You will need to address the quality of the research. This will involve a discussion of the hierarchy of evidence. If there is a good systematic review on the topic,

this would normally count as very persuasive evidence in terms of influencing practice and would need to be a central part of your account… At the other end of the

spectrum the body of evidence might consist primarily of expert opinion then there might be more doubt over how trustworthy the findings are. Chronology is important

too. Research is iterative. This means it builds on previous work. Your account must take this into account. Often you will find the evidence is ambiguous and does not

give us a clear roadmap.
There needs to be some discussion of context and risk. If you are planning to change a practice which might slightly improve care and not put lives at risk (nursing

handover practice for example), you might accept different evidence than if changing practice which might have dramatic effects on mortality or morbidity (for instance

a major new anti-cancer drug).Your account must include a discussion of these issues.
5 You will need to address the quality of the research articles you have found. But this requires some flexibility. If the research base is very small, you will be

able to talk about the articles in some depth and assess their quality. If you have a large research base, then you will need a broader discussion of the nature of

this evidence base as a whole as there will not be enough space to look at each article in depth. But both approaches might be appropriate and a spectrum of approaches

in between.
6 The last quarter (roughly) of the assignment) will look at issues of implementation. What might be preventing change from taking place; attitudes, lack of clarity in

the evidence base, finance or education: there might be more… You might chose to use tools like SWOT or Force field analyses but certainly draw on the literature on

implementing good practice. If you feel that the practice has been implemented successfully, you certainly can write about why it was successful.
7 A brief conclusion bringing the key ideas together.

2.  The Student will select a patient from the clinical setting with a medical/surgical condition.
3.  The clinical instructor will approve the patient selected prior to beginning work on the presentation into insure a variety medical conditions/diagnoses are chosen

and to avoid duplication.
4.  A list of at least 3 references in the most recent APA format will be provided to the instructor. References must be recent (less than 5 yrs), nursing, and one

research article.
•    The care plan must be typed and appropriately formatted.
5.  Identify and list all nursing diagnoses (problems that represent the patient’s responses to the medical diagnosis).
•    Care plans must include a minimum of one of each of the following nursing diagnoses
o    Physiological
o    Psychosocial
o    Knowledge deficit (teaching need)

6.  Develop the plan of care to address TWO of the identified problems with date, goals, outcomes, interventions, rationale, and evaluation criteria.
•    Goals are broad
•    Outcomes are specific, measurable, realistic and concise steps that the patient must accomplish to achieve the general goal.  Outcomes should flow from the

nursing diagnosis.  You should aim to alleviate the problems identified in the “As Evidenced By” portion of your nursing diagnosis.
•    Interventions should include the rationale for doing them.  Rationale must be based on data from the literature and references must be cited.
•    Patient education and discharge planning should be included in the interventions.
•    Evaluation criteria should state whether the outcomes are met.  If outcomes have not been met, how are you going to revise the plan of care?
