Care expressed and practiced in professional nursing models provides a way of looking at the nursing role from the aspect of care. It may seem excessive to consider aspects of caring and compassion in nursing. However, precisely because it IS nursing makes it crucial to our continual progress of defining and upholding one of our central professional principles.

 

Address each of these items:

 

Reflect on a caring and compassionate experience with a patient or family encountered in your practice.

 

How was your compassion demonstrated?

 

How does your thinking about compassion expand to include self and colleagues?

For this assignment, consider the concept of interprofessional teamwork and patient outcomes.

 

Look to your current workplace as an example. (If you are not currently employed, look to a past workplace or clinical practice area.)

 

Apply the components of the iCARE concept to interprofessional teams in a short paper. (Body of the paper to be 3 pages, excluding the title page and references page)

 

iCARE components are:

 

C ompassion

 

A dvocacy

 

R esilience

 

E vidence-Based Practice (EBP)

 

How could you contribute to an interprofessional team and patient outcomes through nursing actions of: compassion, advocacy, resilience, and evidence-based practice?

 

Select one scholarly nursing article from CINAHL as a resource for your paper.

 

Additional scholarly sources can be used but are optional.

 

When searching in the CINAHL database, please limit your search word to one component of the paper you wish to emphasize, such as ‘Resilience’.  Searching for the term iCARE will not produce the results you need.

Identify a clinical topic and related nursing practice issue you think needs to be changed.

 

Locate a systematic review on your topic from the CCN Library databases. Be sure this involves nursing actions.

 

Work through each step of the ACE Star Model as outlined on the assignment form (Star Points 1-5: Discovery, Summary, Translation, Implementation, and Evaluation). Respond to the instructions provided on the form.

 

Follow the activities and thinking of Nurse Daniel in Weeks 1-6 in the ‘Illustration’ part of each lesson. He will be working through a clinical topic and nursing practice issue to demonstrate a change (ACE Star Model and systematic review).

 

Work on a portion of the process each week, as the illustration unfolds.

 

Best Practices

 

Please reach out to your instructor for feedback or assistance with your PICOT question as needed.
