Task Description First, choose a chronic condition from the list below – that your assignment will be based on (note that these have specific chapters in the prescribed textbook):
• Chronic Heart Failure
• Coronary Heart Disease
For the purpose of this assignment, you are the nurse educator for a nursing unit that specialises in the chronic illness you have chosen. You have been asked by your Nurse Unit Manager to prepare a poster that identifies and makes recommendations on available electronic health resources for both people with your chosen illness and health professionals who work in the field. Electronic resources may include but are not limited to websites or mobile apps.
What you need to do: 1) Prepare an electronic poster using a single (1) PowerPoint that provides the
following: o An overview of the disability/condition o An overview of the risk/protective factors for the condition o An overview of strategies for promoting health and wellness in people with
the condition o Recommended electronic resources for health professionals and
consumers (x 1 each) including details of how to access each resource o Reference list
2) Following completion of the poster, use the narration (or Insert Audio) function within PowerPoint to record a critique of each electronic resource listed on your poster. The critique should explain why it is recommended and consider: o Who is the most appropriate user of the resource (target population)? o Apparent benefits of and limitations to the resource? o What will the user gain from accessing the resource? Important: Ensure that the Audio Icon (speaker) is positioned in the Top Right Corner of your poster so that it can be located, and that it is visible, and functional/audible, otherwise marks cannot be given for the relevant criterion.
Template and Video Guide: A Powerpoint poster template is provided in Blackboard, sized AO (84cm x 119cm), which is consistent with professional posters presented at nursing and other health professional conferences. A video demonstration is also provided with instructions to record and embed your audio narration.
