Assessment Instructions

Scenario

You have already learned about evidence-based practice and quality improvement initiatives in previous courses. You will use this information to guide your assessments, while also implementing new concepts introduced in this course. For this assessment, you will develop a concept map and provide supporting evidence and explanations. You may use the case studies presented in the Vila Health: Concept Maps as Diagnostic Tools media, a case study from the literature or your practice that is relevant to the list of conditions below, or another relevant case study you have developed. This case study will provide you with the context for creating your concept map. You may also use the practice context from the case study or extrapolate the case study information and data into your own practice setting. Think carefully when you are selecting the case study for this assessment, as you may choose to build upon it for the second assessment as well.

Some example conditions, diseases and disorders that are relevant to metabolic balance and glucose regulation considerations are:

  • Cancer.
  • Diabetes (type 2).
  • HIV/AIDS.
  • Hyperthyroidism.
  • Hypothyroidism.
  • Metabolic syndrome.
  • Obesity.
  • Polycycstic ovary syndrome.
  • Prediabetes.
  • Pregnancy.

Instructions

Develop a concept map and a short narrative that supports and further explains how the concept map is constructed. You may choose to use the Concept Map Template (in the Resources) as a starting point for your concept map, but are not required to do so. The bullet points below correspond to the grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your evidence-based plan addresses all of them. You may also want to read the Concept Map scoring guide and the Guiding Questions: Concept Map document to better understand how each grading criterion will be assessed.

Part 1: Concept Map
  • Develop an evidence-based concept map that illustrates a plan for achieving high-quality outcomes for a condition that has impaired glucose or metabolic imbalance as related aspects.
Part 2: Additional Evidence (Narrative)
  • Justify the value and relevance of the evidence you used as the basis for your concept map.
  • Analyze how interprofessional strategies applied to the concept map can lead to achievement of desired outcomes.
  • Construct concept map and linkage to additional evidence in a way that facilitates understanding of key information and links.
  • Integrate relevant sources to support assertions, correctly formatting citations and references using current APA style.

Example Assessment: You may use the following to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like:
