Ase study using a reflective model to describe a situation in clinical practice
The case study should be written using a reflective tool of your choice, be referenced and be no more than 500 words. The reflection should concentrate on what you did well, what you could have done better and how this could potentially affect the outcome for the patient. You should identify your learning needs and state how you will address these goals. The module tutor will give feedback following submission.
Critically review the fundamental professional and legal issues which underpin the expansion of professional roles in the health care setting
Demonstrate and critically evaluate the application of a structured comprehensive history taking process within a consultation
Critically evaluate a range of problem solving skills in health assessment
Critically evaluate the application of physical examination techniques
Critically discuss the application of effective communication strategies to facilitate a therapeutic relationship with the patient
Please use Driscoll (2007) model of reflection to formulate the case study.
I work in Primary Healthcare with young Military soldiers as patients.
I would like the reflection to be about a patient who attended with an eye injury following blunt trauma and was quite distressed as he was in pain and unable to see out of the eye initially. The above LO (learning outcomes) need to be included. Therefore reassurance, good communication skills and evaluation of the physical examination.
