NSG 482 Clinical Action Plan: Family Assessment

I’m trying to learn for my Nursing class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

The Clinical Action Plan will involve one initial family assessment visit and one follow-up visit to implement the plan (based on the family assessment data). Ensure that a signed Consent and Release of Liability form has been submitted to the instructor prior to the first point of contact with the selected family.

Select a family within your community to complete the assignments for Weeks 2 and 4.

Review the key points of therapeutic conversation found in Ch. 20 of Community/Public Health Nursing: Promoting the Health of Populations.

Review the following from Community Tool Box:

  • Section 12. Conducting Interviews
  • Section 15. Qualitative Methods to Assess Community Issues

Formulate key questions for obtaining valuable information.

Interview the family for your assessment, take notes, and ensure you address:

  • Demographic data
  • Developmental stage and history of family
  • Environmental data
  • Family structure
  • Family functions
  • Family stress and coping
  • Family composition

Provide a brief overview of the family members, and identify each family member’s role within the family.

Note: Remove all personally identifying information such as the family members’ names. Refer to family members by initials only.

Complete a Genogram and Ecomap based on family assessment data. (See figures 20-3 and 20-4 (p. 393) in Community/Public Health Nursing: Promoting the Health of Populations.)

Format your assessment data as one of the following:

  • Table
  • Chart
  • Matrix
  • Legal-sized infographic
  • 875-word summary

Submit your assessment, Genogram, and Ecomap.

The family consists of 2 people (husband and wife) living in low income housing in Miami, Fl
