COMPLEMENTARY HEALTH CARE
The American Association for Colleges of Nursing state that a BSN prepared nurse should be able to create a poster presentation. Your final will involve creating a poster presentation for your practice area on a CAM approach that might benefit your patient population OR your peers. Consider your unique practice area. Then identify either a patient/family need OR nursing staff need that might respond well to a specific CAM approach. Create a Poster presentation on the topic that includes:
A description of the problem you want to address such as stress among nurses, nausea in cancer patients, insomnia in rehab patient, anxiety in pediatric surgery patients etc.
An overview of one specific CAM therapy you think might work to address the problem. This can come from your readings, articles, or a credible website like NCCAM.
A discussion of what the research shows. This can be in paragraph form or it can be bulleted. (You need at least 3 research articles)
Your proposal & goal: This will be individualized to your problem but in general should include what you exactly would like to see done and what you want to accomplish. The goal should be client centered not nurse centered.
Implementation plan. This will be individualized to your problem and what you wish to accomplish. You should discuss with sufficient detail how you will accomplish your plan/goal.
References cited using APA style (minimum of 5 total). Don’t forget to put a title and your name on the poster.
Submit your presentation on the Final Poster discussion forum by Saturday, March 5 at 11:59 pm. This presentation should be concise and visually appealing.
