A Care Plan

You are required to write a care plan for a patient within your field of nursing (Adult Nursing) which meets the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) code point 10-keeping clear and accurate records relevant to your practice (2018) The care plan will be based around a patient scenario. You will be provided with personal information about the patient and an assessment of their current problem/s which you will use in planning their care.
The assessment information may be presented using a tool of assessment relevant to your field of nursing practice. A template for the care plan using the nursing process (Toney-Butler & Thayer 2020) will be provided. You may need to choose a model of nursing in order to structure or arrange your plan of care for example the Activities of Daily Living (Roper Logan and Tierney 1996) the Self Care model (Orem 2001) or another nursing model relevant to your field of clinical practice.
If a model is chosen you should include referencing and a reason for choosing this model. Using the patient information provided assess the patient’s needs and plan their care showing how you can communicate effectively with your patient their family (if relevant) and other health and/or social care professionals. Your care plan should be based on the best practice based evidence available and be referenced in order to provide reasoning for the care plan you have developed.
