Your plan of care should utilize the PIE (planning, intervention, and evaluation) format. The planning (P) section should include at least two short-term and two long-term goals that are most appropriate for a patient with Alzheimer’s , and each goal should have measurable criteria and have a hypothetical target date or time. The intervention (I) section should include interventions or nursing actions that directly relate to the selected case’s goals and that are specific in action and frequency. The number of interventions should be appropriate for helping to meet individual goals. Finally, the evaluation (E) section of the plan of care should include proposed measures for determining success of the plan and an evaluation of the potential success of the plan based on those measures. You may write the plan of care in either narrative format or as a table with appropriate in-text citation used to support the plan of care.
Specifically for Milestone Two, the following critical elements must be addressed:
Planning for care for your selected case
Write a goal statement that is patient-centered and contains at least one measurable criterion or target date/time. In order to address this element comprehensively, you should be sure to provide at least two short-term and two long-term goals for your selected case.
Analyze the critical nursing concerns associated with this disease state and prioritize them from a treatment standpoint.
Identify patient care technologies that are appropriate for managing clinical manifestations of your selected case.
Outline appropriate nursing interventions for your selected case. Be sure to substantiate your claims with scholarly evidence.
Outline common classes of medications used to manage the disease. Be sure to provide examples from scholarly evidence to support your claims.
Assess the extent to which current patient care technologies improve health promotion for your selected case, using scholarly evidence to support your claims.
Assess the extent to which current patient care technologies assist in decreasing medication errors and improving patient safety with regard to your selected case.
Identify the most appropriate measures for determining the success of your plan of care. In other words, what data will you need to collect to determine if your plan worked? Be sure to substantiate your claims with scholarly evidence.
In terms of the outcome measures you identified, evaluate the potential success of your plan of care and proposed nursing interventions for your selected case. In other words, do you feel your proposed plan of care and interventions for your selected case will result in successful outcomes? Be sure to justify your rationale with evidence-based research.
