Part 2 details

To successfully complete this assignment, you will need to complete all the following. Analysis (approximately 600 words) (40 marks)
Students are to analyse one Human Factor (cognitive, competency or organisational) from the Inquest of Roy Rodney Jacobs that led to the missed opportunity to detect deterioration. This focused analysis should specifically relate to the Registered Nurse’s
role in recognition of deterioration and should provide one strategy that would prevent this from occurring if in a similar patient interaction within their scope of practice whilst caring for Mr Jacobs. (NB A summary of the case is not required nor necessary for this
1. The analysis should commence with a focus on one Human Factor chosen from the case – cognitive, competency, or organizational (covered in modules 1-6). from the perspective of the Registered Nurse about the Inquest of Roy
Rodney Jacobs, this should be approximately 200 words, and the case should not be summarised or included in an introduction or conclusion.
2. Students should include a discussion of the types of missed assessments /missed opportunities. Considered necessary from the Registered Nurse in recognition of deterioration specific to caring for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
This should be approximately 200 words, and it does not need to summarise the case or include an introduction or conclusion.

3. Lastly students should provide one strategy that could be implemented to risk mitigate the missed opportunity chosen from the case that relates to and demonstrates knowledge of the Registered Nurse’s responsibility and accountability for detecting and responding to acute deterioration. In this discussion students should consider the National Safety and Quality in Healthcare Standard – Partnering with Consumers Standard and reflect upon ‘if the health service were to work with Mr Jacobs’s family what other strategy (other than those recommended by the QLD Coroner) could they put in place to prevent another similar incident occurring?’ Approximately 200 words
The discussions must be supported by relevant and contemporary literature including journal articles and relevant legislative and health policy and guideline documents.

It is expected that a minimum of 3 journal articles will be used. Writing Style This assessment piece will be written in the form of an academic piece of work incorporating references to relevant peer reviewed articles and grey literature (legislative and relevant health department policies and guidelines). Students need to demonstrate synthesis of published material with the student’s own analysis to
demonstrate appropriate understanding of key safety and quality concepts within the case. Students should not re-state or provide a synopsis of the case in their work.
