Course:  Advanced Health Assessment of Patients and Populations

Welcome to the Clinical Practice Experience (CPE) for this course. The CPE for the Master of Science in Nursing program core courses consists of a variety of semi-structured activities. CPE provides the opportunity to integrate new knowledge into practice and to attain the identified professional competencies (AACN, 2016).  By completing all the activities and evidence listed within this document, and earning a grade of “Competent,” you will earn 40 indirect CPE hours for this course.*

CPE Objective:

In this CPE, you will experience the role of a graduate degree prepared nurse who is a Patient Care Transition Coordinator. For the purpose of this CPE, a Patient Care Transition Coordinator is defined as a nurse who focuses on assisting patients moving from the hospital to a rehabilitation facility, and then to their homes. During this experience, you will help specific patients move through different levels and types of care. You will identify the education, experience, and skills required for you to perform this role successfully. Additionally, as a Patient Care Transition Coordinator, you should aim to prevent hospitalization and rehospitalization of patients who returned to their homes after hospitalization and rehabilitation.

In this CPE, you will experience the role of a graduate degree-prepared nurse in three phases:

 

  • Phase 1: You will examine evidence-based practices regarding transitions of care for a patient experiencing one of the conditions or procedures identified in the CMS Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP) (acute myocardial infarction (AMI), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure (HF), pneumonia, coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG), & elective primary total hip arthroplasty and or total knee arthroplasty (THA/TKA) ) and focus on the complications specific to the selected condition or procedure discussed in the case. You will choose one patient to focus on for all three phases of the CPE from the cases provided in the Advanced Health Assessment of Patients and Populations CPE Case Scenarios document.
  • Phase 2: Again, you will examine evidence-based practices regarding transitions of care for patients transitioning from hospital (or rehabilitation unit) to home. Yet in this phase, there will be a specific focus on reducing all-cause, non-disease specific readmission rates. You will add this knowledge to the CMS HRRP condition or procedure that was chosen in phase 1, which focused on transitions of care practices specific to one condition or procedure. In this phase, you will focus on reducing the potential causes of readmission that are not related to the condition or procedure of interest.
  • Phase 3: You will once more examine evidence-based practices regarding transitions of care. For this phase, you will focus on the prevention of hospitalization for patients who are at risk for developing the HRRP condition or procedure chosen in phase 1. You will develop an evidence-based plan for primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of the condition or procedure of interest.

Student Instructions:

 

  • Complete and date the required activities
  • Type in your name and date the top of this form
  • Type in the name of your faculty of record for this course (your assigned Course Instructor)

PHASE 1: Review of Evidence Based Practices for Effective Transition of Patient Care

 

CPE

Date Activity Completed

Review all of the activity and evidence requirements for this CPE, including Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3. Break down each activity from each phase into strategic tasks and specific due dates in order to meet the activity deadlines. Create a CPE schedule table in your e-portfolio that lists your tasks, due dates, and estimated time needed to complete each activity.

 

Research the evidence-based practices for effectively transitioning patients from the hospital (& rehabilitation unit) to home with the specific focus on preventing 30-day and long-term disease-specific readmission. Utilize your textbooks, online resources, and other sources as needed.

 

Create a CMS HRRP conditions/procedures based Care Transition Plan for the patient with the condition or procedure that you chose for your CPE. The Care Transition Plan should incorporate individual, social, community, system-level, and condition/procedure specific considerations.

 

 

Meet with one or more advanced professional nurses or colleagues to present and obtain feedback on your CMS HRRP conditions/procedures based Care Transition Plan.  Ask for feedback regarding the clarity and correctness of your plan. Document the feedback you received and describe what if any changes you will make to the plan you developed. Next, use this feedback to improve your plan before including it in your e-portfolio.

 

Create a GoReact video reflection of your clinical practice experience describing your learning experiences as you went through the process of preparing and planning for creating a Care Transition Plan. If you have trouble with the GoReact link, you can copy and paste the URL directly into your browser: https://lrps.wgu.edu/provision/173986797

CPE

Date Activity Completed

Review the CPE Schedule table created in Phase 1 to ensure you are still making progress towards meeting your timelines. Adjust the schedule table if necessary.

 

Research the evidence-based practices for effectively transitioning patients from the hospital (& rehabilitation unit) to home with the specific focus on preventing all-cause hospital readmission. Utilize your textbooks, online resources, and other sources as needed.

 

Add evidence-based practices centered on preventing all-cause hospital readmission to the Care Transition Plan created in phase 1. The Care Transition Plan should incorporate individual, social, community, system-level, and social-determinants of health considerations that impact all-cause readmission.

 

 

Meet with one or more advanced professional nurses or colleagues to present and obtain feedback on the evidence-based practices centered on preventing all-cause hospital readmission added to your Care Transition Plan.

Lakshmi is a 73-year-old Indian female who is being discharged from the hospital after a 4.5-day inpatient stay for treatment of community acquired pneumonia (CAP).

When her symptoms seemed to worsen and she started feeling short of breath, she went to a local urgent care for an examination. The provider in the urgent care collected her health information, conducted a physical examination (coarse breath sounds in the lower lobes), and performed a chest x-ray which showed right lower lobe pneumonia. Lakshmi’s blood pressure at the urgent care was 88/65, her BUN was 10, she was not confused, and her respiratory rate was 24. The provider explained the benefits of hospitalization versus in-home treatment, CURB-65 score, and recommendation for hospitalization. Lakshmi agreed with that plan, the provider called the local hospital to arrange for a direct admit, and Lakshmi’s husband drove her to the hospital.

 

While hospitalized, Lakshmi continued her normal medications and was also given intravenous antibiotics. Additionally, she was given 2L of oxygen by nasal cannula.  Lakshmi will be discharged home today, with plans to follow up with her primary care provider in the next two weeks.
