Toolbox Tuesday: Build a Case Study


Toolbox Tuesday is a weekly blog series by NurseTim, a leader in faculty development and student preparation.

The tools featured each week are mapped to the NCLEX® Test Plan and the QSEN Competencies. These ready-to-use tools help educators quickly implement evidence-based learning strategies that engage learners. Never miss a tool by signing up to get blog updates via your favorite RSS Reader or email.

CR35: Build a Case Study
Environment
Classroom or Clinical Learning Lab
Purpose
Students need to understand the expected and unexpected
NCLEX® Connection
Depends on focus.  Could be regarding safety, delegation, legal, ethical, or pathophysiology
QSEN
Teamwork, depends on focus
Steps
     Break the class into groups
     Either start with a blank slate or with a partial Case Study
     Pass out the Case Study or partial case study out to the groups regarding the current or previously taught content.
     Have the group complete the case study
     Redistribute the case study to different groups and see what the groups developed
     What did they get right, what did they get wrong, what path did they take?
Supplies/Prep
None
Budget Concerns
Minimal if necessary to get the start of a case study 
Comments
Why do faculty hesitate to create a case study?  Because we are nervous that we will put in the wrong vital signs per scenario, or the wrong labs per scenario.  By doing this in class, with upper level students, you will have the ability to screen these numbers and patient actions with an audience.  Then you can use these case studies later in class.

Option number 2 – Take a case study regarding a topic currently being discussed.  Have the students integrate a previously discussed illness into this case study.  For example, find a case study regarding CHF, and ask students to take into consideration additional assessment, interventions and evaluations necessary if the patient had another illness such as diabetes.

NurseTimTube: Grading Papers with iAnnotate

Grading essays, papers and care plans is an important skill for all faculty to master. Many of us are overwhelmed with workload, yet realize how crucial our comments can be to students. Faculty can provide quality feedback in a timely fashion that allows students to continually improve their writing skills. Examine timesaving strategies and assessment techniques that can make your feedback to students more effective. Explore technology that makes the feedback process fast and effective.

Michael Hutton, MSN, RN shows us how to easily grade papers and care plans with an iPad. This video clip is part of a webinar where two faculty present the principles of effective grading strategies. Whether clinical paperwork or care plans in the nursing lecture, using the iPad can really help faculty manage assessment well.
