Overview
Concept maps are important tools in developing an understanding of certain concepts. There are many options when it comes to mapping out new concepts. However, the purpose is to connect new concepts and promote a graphical representation of information.
Before you complete your first Concept Map:
Watch the video How to Make a Concept Map (8:30) see an example of a concept map being created.
Review this Sample Concept Map as a model for your concept map assignment.
Refer to this Concept Mapping guide if you need additional support.
Instructions
Create a concept map using information from this case study:
M.S., a 72-year-old white woman, comes to your clinic for a complete physical examination. She has not been to a provider for 11 years because “I don’t like doctors.” Her only complaint today is “pain in my upper back.”
She describes the pain as sharp and knifelike. The pain began approximately three weeks ago when she was getting out of bed in the morning and hasn’t changed. M.S. rates her pain as 6 on a 0- to 10-point pain scale and says the pain decreases to 3 or 4 after taking “a couple of ibuprofen.” She denies recent falls or trauma.
M.S. admits she needs to quit smoking and start exercising but states, “I don’t have the energy to exercise, and besides, I’ve always been thin.” She has smoked one to two packs of cigarettes per day since she was 17 years old. Her last blood work was 11 years ago, and she can’t remember the results. She went through menopause at the age of 47 and has never taken hormone replacement therapy. The physical exam was unremarkable other than moderate tenderness to deep palpation over the spinous process at T7. No masses or tenderness to the tissue surrounded the tender spot. No visible masses, skin changes, or erythema were noted. Her neurologic exam is intact, and no muscle wasting is noted.
M.S. has never had an osteoporosis screening. She confides that her mother and grandmother were diagnosed with osteoporosis when they were in their early 50s.
Include answers to the following questions in your concept map:
What is the priority concept of this scenario?
Write a summary of the pathophysiology if appropriate.
What assessment findings led you to identify this priority problem? Are there other concerns based on your assessment of M.S.?
What is your priority problem?
Based on your knowledge of the nursing process so far, what goals would you recommend in the plan of care for M.S?
What interventions will help M.S. meet these goals?
How would you evaluate your plan of care to determine the next steps?
Remember: This is your first attempt at creating a concept map using all phases of the nursing process. Focus on choices based on evidence and being able to support your decisions.
Concept Mapping Options:
These are available resources for completing your concept maps. You may use any of these options or any other concept mapping tools that you find. You are not required to use the same tool for the concept map in each module.

Much effort should be devoted to this section as it is a key component of your work. This should be a synthesis of the literature, not a catalog of studies or simply an analysis of the research you discover.
1-Perform a literature review using a minimum of seven (7) peer-reviewed articles and books, as well as non-research literature such as evidence-based guidelines, toolkits, standardized procedures, etc.
Review of areas in relationship to medicine, nursing, public health, etc.
2-The review should be critical and synthesize rather than just being a catalog of studies.
3-Summarize the key findings of the research and its relevancy to your project that point out the scientific status of the phenomenon under question. Such a statement includes:
1-What we know and how well we know it.
2-What we do not know.
4-Describe any gaps in knowledge that you found and the effects this may have on advanced practice nursing as it relates to your project topic.
Your integrative literature review should be 5–6 pages in length, not including the cover or reference pages. You must reference a minimum of 7 scholarly articles published within the past 5–7 years.

Multidisciplinary Conference 6.1
Multidisciplinary team meetings, conferences, or rounds are mechanisms through which care providers from different specialties (physicians, nursing, case management, social work, quality, pharmacy, and other ancillary services) meet to communicate, coordinate patient care, make joint decisions, and manage responsibilities. These can occur either during bedside rounds or in a team meeting.
Initial Post
This time, prior to reviewing the bedside rounds, the team supervisor has come up with two scenarios that could happen to nurses outside of the hospital.
Instructions
Select the tabs to review each story. Then share your responses to the questions provided:

While Eating at a Restaurant
While Driving to Work
While Eating at a RestaurantWhile eating at a restaurant close to your hospital with a friend, you notice a hospital employee drop her drink. The female appears in her 50s and is Hispanic. You approach to help her clean up the spill when you notice her face is drooping on the left side. You get focused and begin conducting FAST and ADPIE. You will ask if she is ok. You will ask her name. Introduce yourself and tell her that you can help her. You have your friend call for help (notify staff and call 911). You stay by the patient’s side; monitoring ABCs; reassuring and decreasing anxiety. When EMS arrives, the patient’s initial blood pressure is 200/110. The patient is placed on a cardiac monitor and EMS transports her to VHC.
Discuss the following:
What are her risk factors (modifiable and nonmodifiable)?
What do you think would be done upon her arrival at VHC?
Your friend, a new nursing student, then asks you, “What if the CT scan shows that it is an ischemic stroke?” What would you say?
What could be done for ischemic stroke if TPA is contraindicated?
While Driving to WorkYou are sitting at a red light in your car when you notice a pedestrian that is crossing the crosswalk in front of you, grabs the front of your car, and lowers herself to the ground. You jump out of the car to offer assistance. The white female, who appears to be in her 70s, seems confused and due to weakness of the left side is not able to stand back up.You implement FAST and ADPIE, as you should. You ask her if she is ok and ask her name. You then introduce yourself and tell her that you will help her. You have your cell phone and call for help (call 911). You stay by the patient’s side; monitoring ABCs; reassuring and decreasing anxiety.You just happen to have your lab kit with you and the patient’s initial blood pressure is 210/90. You notice the patient has a medical alert bracelet on that states she is on Coumadin for A. Fib. When EMS arrives, the patient is placed on a cardiac monitor and EMS transports her to VHC. She is able to ask for you to follow her to VHC and since you are done with class for the day, you do. When staff allows you back to visit her in the ED after the CT scan, the patient is alert, oriented to person, place, and time and grabs your hands with both of hers (equal grips), and thanks you profusely.After the patient’s permission (HIPAA); the ED physician shares that her CT scan was negative and that all her symptoms have resolved.Share your thoughts on what might have happened.
