Client teaching activity
Order Description
Assessment 2 Client Teaching scenarios and detailed instructions Semester 1 2017
Scenario One
Jaxson is a 5 year old boy who lives with both parents and his older sister in the suburbs of a large
city. Jaxson was diagnosed with Type I diabetes 2 years ago which has been well managed by his
parents. He is developing normally and is about to start pre-school. As he will need to become
more independent in the management of his diabetes he requires further education on how to test
his blood glucose level (BGL). It is your role as the practice nurse of his local medical centre to teach
him how to do this.
Scenario Two
Charlotte is a 13 year old girl who lives with her father and her younger brother in a small house in
the suburbs. Her mother passed away four years ago and Charlotte often stays with her
grandmother during the week to be closer to school. Charlotte has made an appointment with the
school nurse because she is concerned about when menstruation will commence. You are the school
nurse working with Charlotte today.
Scenario Three
You are the registered nurse working in a Womens health centre. Jessica is a healthy 36 year old
mother of 2 young children aged 4 and 7. Jessica has become more aware of the risk of breast
cancer due to her maternal aunts recent diagnosis and subsequent treatment and she is seeking
education regarding how she can be proactive in her health care.
Assessment Instructions
For this assessment students are required to choose one (1) of the scenarios outlined below and
present a client teaching activity (CTA) that is culturally and developmentally appropriate. The
nursing and teaching process must be adhered to and the following points must be included:
? Ensure that you have good paragraph structure e.g. one topic per paragraph refer to
Grellier and Goerke textbook and NCS1102 notes for a refresher on this.
? This is an academic paper so should be written in the 3
rd person.
? Succinct introduction and conclusion. The introduction should include a brief overview of
the chosen client but do not copy verbatim as this is an unnecessary use of your word count.
You may include the scenario as an appendix if you wish.
? No new material to be included in the conclusion

? Assessment: assess the client thoroughly this means their physical cognitive psychomotor
skills psychosocial status and developmental stage. Link the developmental discussion to at
least one theorist for instance you may choose Piaget for Jaxson or Erikson for Jessica. You
may use different developmental theorists for other categories to demonstrate your depth
of knowledge. Emphasis on each component of the assessment may differ depending on the
client. Consider social cultural and family issues. Identify the clients learning needs
language skills motivation ability to learn teaching environment and resources for learning.
You need a comprehensive assessment in order to identify the problem / nursing diagnosis.
? Nursing Diagnosis: Provide a problem statement that reflects the clients specific learning
needs. This only needs to be a couple of lines and remember this is a CTA so it will be
related to a knowledge deficit either cognitive psychomotor or affective or a combination of
these.
