Directions

1. Identify abnormal findings and discuss WHY these are present.

2. Create a problem list, with ACTUAL problems. You can also list potential problems if they are directly related to a medication or abnormal lab value.

3. For each problem, list appropriate nursing interventions.

Concept Mapping Instructions

Learning objectives:

1.       To create a concept map based on a patient you encountered at clinical

2.       To begin creating logical connections between patient diagnoses, medications, s/sx, and lab values.

3.       To identify incorrect connections between patient diagnoses, medications, s/sx, and lab values.

4.       To modify concept map to reflect new connections

5.       To reflect on how concept mapping has affected your learning

Directions:

1.  Put your patient's initials in a BOX in the middle of the paper.

2. Put each of your patient's medical diagnoses and (including medical history) in CIRCLES around their initials.  Connect the CIRCLES to the BOX with straight lines.

è Glaucoma

Atrial fibrillation ß  John Doe à HTN

è CVA

3. Connect each of your patient's medications to one of their medical diagnoses.  For example: metoprolol is directly connected to HTN.

John Doe à HTN à metoprolol

4. Some medications are not directly related to a specific diagnosis.  If this is the case, you can add more boxes to explain why the patient is on that medication.  For example, a patient may be on docusate but not have a diagnosis of constipation.  They may be taking docusate to prevent constipation related to narcotic use.  Narcotics are related to pain, which is related to their recent surgical procedure.

John Doe à Surgical procedure à pain à narcotic à risk for constipation à docusate

5.  Connect your patient's lab values to something, either their diagnoses or medications.

John Doeà Afib à warfarin à INR 2.5

6.  Connect abnormal s/sx that you observed at clinical to a diagnoses or medication or lab value. 

John Doe à Afib à HR 115

è Irregular heart rate

7.  Include any nursing interventions you performed for your patient. 

8.  Give  your first draft concept map to a peer and ask them to comment on your concept map using the peer feedback form.  Does it make sense?  Are your connections logical?  Do you need to be more clear by identifying more indirect connections?

9.  Revise your concept map with the information from your peer.  This will be your second draft.

10. Reflect on how creating the concept map and discussing it with your peer has affected your learning using the Reflective Summary Form.

11.   Paper clip IN THIS ORDER

a.   First Draft                  (b)      Second Draft

Concept Map Reflective Summary

1. What did you learn from creating this concept map?
