The student will demonstrate the ability to:
1.1 Assess the learning needs of the pediatric client.
1.2 Develop a teaching module which identifies the target population, learning objectives, content, methods of instruction, and evaluative methods.
1.3 Present the teaching module to a minimum of one pediatric client, preferably a group of pediatric clients.
1.4 Evaluate the results of the presentation.
A major role of the professional nurse is teaching–to individuals, families, groups, and organizations. The nurse needs to have knowledge of assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation in relation to the teaching/learning process to enhance the care given to clients. She/he can then provide appropriate health education within these parameters.
Part 1: Part 1 is the preparation of your project where you accumulate the research and information needed for your chosen teaching topic for a pediatric client and their parents. Please check the due date for part 1 as it will be due before the part 2 presentation so you may receive appropriate feedback and make necessary changes. (See the sign-up sheet in Moodle to choose your teaching topic). The due date for part 1 is on your syllabus and is non-negotiable.
5% 1. Select a topic to be taught from the list of approved topics and identify the pediatric client who would benefit from this teaching. Discuss the relevance and importance of this topic for today’s pediatric population. References required.
15% 2. Present the rationale for your choice of topic and teaching method by assessing the learning needs of the target population. Discuss all of the following: developmental, cognitive, educational, cultural, and economic parameters. If applicable to your teaching topic, discuss a pathophysiological parameter. Based on the learning needs of your chosen population, identify teaching methodologies (e.g., lecture, demonstration, etc.) you plan to use and that are congruent with the topic to be taught. Explain how your chosen teaching methodologies relate to the target population’s developmental, cognitive, and/or educational status. References Required.
7.5% 3. Develop client/patient-centered behavioral objectives (minimum of three) including criteria for measurement (precise date or amount). Write as goals – e.g.: The children will identify one way germs are spread.
10% 4. Identify and write out an expanded outline (in proper APA format) of the proposed content to be taught in the pediatric video. You may include this as an appendix at the end of your paper. Cite references as appropriate.
5% 5. Develop and state the evaluative methods (e.g. return-demonstration, teach-back, question-and-answer session) you will use to assist in evaluating the effectiveness of the teaching project. Explain why your evaluative methods are appropriate for chosen pediatric population.
7.5% 6. APA 7th edition format is to be used, along with appropriate headings. Spelling and punctuation count. A minimum of two
peer-reviewed references are required. One reference must be from a current nursing journal (within the last 5 years) and the other may be from a current nursing journal or from another professional medical/ healthcare source (e.g. your textbook). The citation for your nursing journal must be accurate so the journal can be accessed for grading purposes. If your citation is incorrect or your nursing journal is inaccessible, you will lose credit for that part of your format.
