During your assessment of Mrs Lucas's learning needs you use the Dunn and Dunn (1987) learning styles and identify that a number of stimuli affect Mrs Lucas's learning including: 1) Mrs Lucas is not motivated to learn about the incentive spirometer; 2) Mrs Lucas states ‘ I don't need a nurse to show me how to use it' (she prefers not to be taught by an authority figure); 3 Mrs Lucas does not seem to have followed through with any of the verbal instructions you have given so far in regards to pre-operative preparation (she is not an auditory learner). Write a teaching plan for Mrs Lucas. Ensure your plan includes: learning objectives, teaching strategies (tailored to Mrs Lucas's learning style), and your evaluation criteria.

Mr Darcy has been educated to conduct mouth washes with sodium bicarbonate before and after each meal and before sleep at night throughout the course of his treatment.

QUESTION 6: Imagine you were working in a hospital when you slipped and hurt your back resulting in constant, centralised back pain and difficulty mobilising. You are physically examined by a medical officer in your workplace who determines the injury is soft tissue damage.

He has chronic asthma and has been admitted to the local hospital on several occasions with exacerbations of his asthma. Following his last hospital admission Mr Collins was referred to the community health centre and has an appointment with you (the community nurse) in the community based asthma education program – You gain the following information from Mr Collins: 1) When he experiences an asthma exacerbation he has a harsh, non-productive cough, feels breathless and is very restless and unable to sleep; 2) He is prescribed both preventer and reliever inhalers to treat his asthma; 3) Mr Collins says he has been increasingly worried about his symptoms of asthma as he wakes overnight with frequent coughing and his concentration at work has been affected by his poor sleep; 4) He also reports that he gets very breathless when walking up hills and to the train on his way to work. On the basis of this information what asthma self-management plan would you suggest for Mr Collins? QUESTION 8: Explain how gender differences influence health service utilisation and outline Australian strategies that have been put in place to overcome these differences.

Teaching plan for Mrs. Lucas on the use of an incentive spirometer to prevent post- operative respiratory complications, following mitral valve replacementIntroduction The goal of educating Mrs. Lucas will be to instil in her behaviours that will improve her health status (Rankin).Mrs Lucas being a non auditory learner, I will use a visual and physical learning style to meet her learning needs. Consequently, since she is not motivated to learn about the incentive spirometer, and she prefers not to be taught by an authority figure, I will give her the incentive spirometer prior to the teaching, and involve one of her close family members to aid in the teaching process. Learning objectives: Mrs Lucas will become motivated to learn about the use of an incentive spirometer. Mrs. Lucas will be in a position to effectively use the incentive spirometer so as to prevent post operative respiratory complications. Teaching strategies: by providing Mrs. Lucas with visual images of how the incentive spirometer is used, and demonstrating to her, I based it on the behaviourist model of teaching and learning where behaviour is added into Mrs. Lucas lifestyle to enhance her health (Leddy, 2006). I will also initiate my teaching lessons to Mrs. Lucas at the time that she is not apprehensive about her health as this will enable her to concentrate more on the teaching than on her condition (Leddy, 2006). The relative will play the role of ensuring that Mrs. Lucas adheres to the treatment regime, and also that the incentive spirometer is kept clean at all times and within her reach to avoid cross infection. The relative will also see to it that Mrs. Lucas adheres to the prescribed breathing exercises and cough, upon discharge from the health facility. Evaluation criteria: Mrs. Lucas is able to demonstrate back to me how the incentive spirometer is used. She is also able to perform deep breathing exercises and her ability to produce a cough (Smeltzer, 2008) so as to reduce post operative respiratory complications.QUESTION 1: You`re planning to educate Mrs Lucas about the use of an incentive spirometer to prevent post-operative respiratory complications following her mitral valve replacement. During your assessment of Mrs Lucas`s learning needs you use the Dunn and Dunn (1987) learning styles and identify that a number of stimuli affect Mrs Lucas`s learning including: 1) Mrs Lucas is not motivated to learn about the incentive spirometer; 2) Mrs Luca...
