What is the pathophysiology and disease process affecting this client?

The patient you choose might have multiple co-morbidities. Build your concept map around the concept you chose; this might not necessarily be the patient’s priority concern. For example, you chose the concept of ‘Infection’ from your ‘Weak Performance Areas’ on the HESI Dashboard. Your patient might have co-morbidities related to Perfusion and Gas Exchange, which will most often be a higher priority than ‘Infection’. However, to increase your knowledge about ‘Infection’, complete your map according to cues (signs and symptoms) and appropriate interventions related to ‘Infection’.

Gather the patient data and organize the information on the nursing process template of the Concept Map Worksheet. The nursing process template (located on page 1 of the assignment) will help you complete the concept map assignment located on page 2. After completing the nursing process template, utilize this information to help you build the concept map assignment. The arrows in the map show you the order in which the map is intended to be completed. All boxes should be completed related to the concept you chose.

Recognize cues: What matters the most? What client findings are significant, most important, and of immediate concern to the nurse? What is the pathophysiology and disease process affecting this client? Analyze the cues: How are the cues related? How do they link to the client’s conditions/problems? Prioritize hypotheses: Rank the client’s conditions/problems in order of severity and complexity. What is most important? Generate solutions: What are the desired outcomes for this client related to your identified concept? Identify SMART goals for this client. What interventions support achieving the desired outcomes? Take action: Implement your identified interventions. How will you accomplish these interventions? Evaluate the outcomes: How will you determine the effectiveness of your interventions?
