Chamberlain University Wk 2 Health & Medical Direct Care Template


Review the Direct Care Project Overview above. Select topic (Air Quality OR Substance Use) from the table. This will be the topic of your entire course project.

View the Direct Care Project Part 1 Tutorial (Links to an external site.).

  1. Download the corresponding Assessment and Diagnosis template under Templates below. For example, if you have selected Air Quality as your topic, download the Air Quality Assessment and Diagnosis Template.

Collect the data outlined in the template. There are two parts:

  1. Online data collection – gather data from the weblinks provided on the template

Please note, if you live in Washington D.C. it may be listed as a state or county. You may list the Washington D.C. data as state and county, then compare to the U.S. data.

Modified windshield survey data collection – gather local community data by physically looking at your community

If possible, plan on asking someone to drive during your survey so that you can take notes.

  1. Your community should be the area where you live or the area surrounding your work. The community must include a residential area and be a large enough area to answer the survey questions. If you live in a large area, you may choose a suburb.

Note:?It is helpful to conduct this portion of the assessment at least two different times: during the day or evening, on a weekday, and/or on the weekend.

Identify a nursing problem (nursing diagnosis) based on data and observations

  1. You must select a problem caused by your topic

Important: the problem you identify will be utilized in Parts 2, 3, and 4 of the project.

  • Identify the vulnerable population that the problem affects. This will also determine who you will present to in Part 3.

Write the nursing diagnosis (See template and chapter 6 in Nies & McEwen textbook for more information)
