Explain why your evaluative methods are appropriate for chosen pediatric population.

Objectives
The student will demonstrate the ability to:
1.1 Assess the learning needs of the pediatric client.
1.2 Develop a teaching module which identifies the target population, learning objectives, content, methods of instruction, and evaluative methods.
1.3 Present the teaching module to a minimum of one pediatric client, preferably a group of pediatric clients.
1.4 Evaluate the results of the presentation.
Rationale
A major role of the professional nurse is teaching–to individuals, families, groups, and organizations. The nurse needs to have knowledge of assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation in relation to the teaching/learning process to enhance the care given to clients. She/he can then provide appropriate health education within these parameters.
Project Requirements:
Part 1: Part 1 is the preparation of your project where you accumulate the research and information needed for your chosen teaching topic for a pediatric client and their parents. Please check the due date for part 1 as it will be due before the part 2 presentation so you may receive appropriate feedback and make necessary changes. (See the sign-up sheet in Moodle to choose your teaching topic). The due date for part 1 is on your syllabus and is non-negotiable.
50% Total
5% 1. Select a topic to be taught from the list of approved topics and identify the pediatric client who would benefit from this teaching. Discuss the relevance and importance of this topic for today’s pediatric population. References required.

Discuss all of the following: developmental, cognitive, educational, cultural, and economic parameters. If applicable to your teaching topic, discuss a pathophysiological parameter. Based on the learning needs of your chosen population, identify teaching methodologies (e.g., lecture, demonstration, etc.) you plan to use and that are congruent with the topic to be taught. Explain how your chosen teaching methodologies relate to the target population’s developmental, cognitive, and/or educational status. References Required.

10% 4. Identify and write out an expanded outline (in proper APA format) of the proposed content to be taught in the pediatric video. You may include this as an appendix at the end of your paper. Cite references as appropriate.
5% 5. Develop and state the evaluative methods (e.g. return-demonstration, teach-back, question-and-answer session) you will use to assist in evaluating the effectiveness of the teaching project. Explain why your evaluative methods are appropriate for chosen pediatric population.
7.5% 6. APA 7th edition format is to be used, along with appropriate headings. Spelling and punctuation count. A minimum of two
peer-reviewed references are required. One reference must be from a current nursing journal (within the last 5 years) and the other may be from a current nursing journal or from another professional medical/ healthcare source (e.g. your textbook).

They can include numbers, text, images, or any combination of the three.

Assignment Prompt
Infographics are visual representations of information. They can include numbers, text, images, or any combination of the three. Just as in traditional writing assignments, infographics can take on any of the various rhetorical modes — informative, instructive, descriptive, persuasive, etc. Infographics provide a quick way to convey a lot of information. For example, this infographic from the American Association of Nurse Practitioners conveys data related to NPs much more concisely than another paragraph inserted here could have (https://www.aanp.org/all-about-nps/what-is-an-np-2):
Students will create an Infographic on the topic of Advanced Practice Nursing. You will create an infographic that is easily understood by the lay public or general population. The infographic should provide information useful to communicating the “What, Why, When and How” of APN.
Student will select a platform (tool) for building their infographics. There are plenty of great infographic platforms out there. Most are free, but may require that you do set up an account. Check out Infogr.am, Easelly, Piktochart, and Visme.
Create the Infographic using one of the above platforms.
Post completed infographic in PDF format
Students are not required to purchase a membership to any third party sites. If you cannot download a PDF without purchase, please submit a screenshot(s) of your final product for grading.

SCENARIO:

A simulation vendor has offered to give you a 5-year-old, used, high-fidelity manikin for staff development training purposes (cardiopulmonary resuscitation, advanced cardiac life support, pediatric advanced life support, annual skills updates). His only request is that all supplies used with the manikin and the maintenance contract be purchased through his company. The chief nursing officer is very excited about the offer and has asked all the unit directors to consider how the manikin might be used for their staff training needs. The hospital currently does not have the funds available to purchase a new manikin.
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:
1. Justify acceptance or rejection of the gift. What influenced your choice?
2. What are the fixed and variable costs?
3. What are the controllable and noncontrollable costs?
4. What factors determine whether this gift is cost-effective?
5. Who will have control over how and when the manikin is used?
