This assignment requires you to focus on the holistic care of a patient admitted to hospital with an acute presentation of a chronic condition and to demonstrate your ability to apply the clinical reasoning cycle to develop and plan nursing care.

Select one of the following case scenarios:

Mr. Peter Newman is a 44-year-old man admitted to the ward with infective exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Mr Newman is a heavy smoker and social drinker. Mr Newman is a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) truck driver with a remote mining company and is finding it difficult to meet work responsibilities due to increasing breathlessness.

Miss Violet Paterson is a 77-year-old woman admitted to the ward following an Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI). Miss Paterson is currently in a stable condition. She has a history of primary hypertension and longstanding osteoarthritis. Over the last few months the arthritic pain has increased significantly, and both her blood pressure and osteoarthritis are impacting on her ability to meet her daily living needs.
