The purpose of this assignment is to practice the skills you have learned and demonstrate your ability to assess the abdomen and neurological system. For this assignment you will need to videotape yourself examining the abdomen on a volunteer of your choosing. This should take you between 30-45 minutes. When you are done you will document your findings. You will need to submit both your video and your documentation. Below are the required pieces in your assessment.
Abdomen: Inspect the skin and contour of the abdomen Observe for peristalsis and pulsations Auscultate the abdomen Auscultate for bruits over the aorta, renal arteries, iliac arteries and femoral arteries Percuss the abdomen Palpate the abdomen (light then deep) Assess for peritoneal inflammation Rebound tenderness Murphy’s sign Rovsing’s sign Psoas sign Obturator sign Cutaneous hyperesthesia Percuss liver Palpate liver Percuss spleen Palpate spleen Palpate bilateral kidneys Assess for CVA tenderness Palpate width of the aorta
Nervous system Assess mental status Cranial nerves 1-12 Motor system: muscle bulk, tone strength, coordination, gait and stance Sensory system: pain/temp, vibration, light touch, discrimination Deep tendon reflexes

CS/SB 614 authorizes an ARNP to prescribe, dispense, administer, or order any drug, which would include controlled substances.
ARNP disciplinary sanctions are added to the bill in s. 456.072, F.S., (Section 5) to mirror a physician’s sanctions for prescribing or dispensing a controlled substance other in the course of professional practice or failing to meet practice standards. Additional acts for which discipline may be taken against an ARNP relating to practicing with controlled substances that are added to the Nurse Practice Act (Section 10) include:
Presigning blank prescription forms.
Prescribing a Schedule II for office use.
Prescribing, dispensing, or administering an amphetamine or sympathomimetic amine drug, except for specified conditions.
Prescribing, dispensing, or administering certain hormones for muscle-building or athletic performance.
Promoting or advertising a pharmacy on a prescription form unless the form also states that the prescription may be filled at the pharmacy of your choice.
Prescribing, dispensing, or administering drugs, including controlled substances, other than in the course of his or her professional practice.
Prescribing, dispensing, or administering a controlled substance to himself or herself.
Prescribing, dispensing, or administering laetrile.
Dispensing a controlled substance listed in Schedule II or Schedule III in violation of the requirements for dispensing practitioners in the Pharmacy Practice Act.
Promoting or advertising controlled substances.

You will identify a specific evidence-based practice proposal topic for the capstone project. Consider a clinical environment in which you have recently worked. The capstone project topic can be a clinical practice problem, an organizational issue, a quality improvement suggestion, a leadership initiative, or an educational need appropriate to your area of interest as well as your practice immersion (practicum) setting. Examples of the integration of community health, leadership, and an EBP can be found on the “Educational and Community-Based Programs” page of the Healthy People 2020 website.
Write a 500-750 word description of your proposed capstone project topic. Make sure to include the following: The problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need that will be the focus of the project The setting or context in which the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need can be observed. A description providing a high level of detail regarding the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need. Impact of the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need on the work environment, the quality of care provided by staff, and patient outcomes. Significance of the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need and its implications to nursing. A proposed solution to the identified project topic

What is the difference between service-based and population-based applications for information systems in public health organizations? Present an example of each application and justify your rationale. .
Throughout this course, you have been developing a workflow redesign that could be applied in a health care practice setting. However, determining an appropriate workflow redesign is only part of the process. It is much easier to design something on paper than it is to actually make it work effectively within an organization. Nurse informaticists must consider how the workflow redesign can be implemented in a real-world organization. Attention needs to be focused on understanding organizational risks, organizational culture, and the needs of the end user. Implementing a new project may be disruptive. The key is to plan in such a way as to minimize this disruption as much as possible.
In this Discussion, you consider possible implementation strategies for the workflow redesign measure that you selected for your Course Project. (Incomplete Medication Reconciliation )
Review the articles in this week’s Learning Resources and reflect on the insights they provide on implementing a workflow redesign project within a health care setting. Also reflect on your past experience with workflow redesign and technology integration. What implementation strategies were applied? Review pages 377– 397 (SEE ATTACHED PDF FILE ) in the Dennis & Wixom textbook. Identify a specific implementation or conversion strategy that would be appropriate for the workflow redesign you selected for your Course Project. For example, will it be a phased implementation? If so, which applications will be launched first, and why? Consider why the strategy you selected would be appropriate for the scope of your workflow redesign project and your practice setting. Reflect on how it will support the needs of end users. Consider the benefits and drawbacks of applying the implementation strategy you selected. What would the positive outcomes be? What potential challenges or barriers might you encounter?
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by tomorrow 10/18/2016 a minimum of 550 words essay in APA format with 3 references from the required readings below. Apply the level one headings as numbered below:
1) A summary of the workflow redesign measure you plan to use for Part 3 of your Course Project. (Incomplete medication reconciliation )
2) Describe the implementation (or conversion) strategy you would recommend, and justify why it would be appropriate in your practice setting and for the scope of your workflow redesign.
3) Explain the potential outcomes of this strategy, including benefits and potential obstacles.

In this chapter, the authors explore the process of assigning, initializing, and completing tasks during the information system development phases. They also clarify what occurs in this phase of the process and how to insure the best results.
Chapter 13, “Transition to the New System” (pp. 400–424)
The focus of this chapter is on the process of transitioning from one method of collecting and storing information to a new information system. It explores the immediate effect of those changes and how to prepare your organization to profit from the improvements.

In this article, the authors seek to determine the best method for ensuring the adoption of electronic health records (EHR). They review a number of different theoretical frameworks for facilitating the adoption process and then outline a research study to determine which model is most relevant.

The authors of this study conducted a systematic literature review to examine current research on the implementation and use of electronic health records. Their review indicated that some of the key factors in determining the success of an implementation were the design of the interface, project management, and functionality. Data security was also a concern.
