Advantages and disadvantages for the patient and legal and ethical principles for the nurse of this technology will be explored.Course OutcomesThis assignment enables the student to meet the following Course Outcomes.CO #4: Investigate safeguards and decision-making support tools embedded in patient care technologies and information systems to support a safe practice environment for both patients and healthcare workers. (PO #4)CO #6: Discuss the principles of data integrity, professional ethics, and legal requirements related to data security, regulatory requirements, confidentiality, and clients right to privacy. (PO #6)PointsThis assignment is worth a total of 200 points.Due DateYour completed paper is due at the end of Week 4. Submit it to the basket in the Dropbox by Sunday at 11:59 p.m. mountain time. Post your questions to the weekly Q&A Forum. Contact your instructor if you need additional assistance. See the Course Policies regarding late assignments. Failure to submit your paper to the Dropbox on time will result in a deduction of points.BackgroundOur text (Hebda, 2013) provides us with a broad perspective on telehealth. However, the specialty of telenursing is only briefly discussed. Healthcare is readily embracing any technology to improve patient outcomes, streamline operations, and lower costs. This technology includes the use of various applications based in various environments where registered nurses indirectly provide professional nursing care.ScenarioThe following scenario serves as the basis for your paper.You have worked with Tomika for the past 5 years. Tomika shares with you that she has resigned and plans to work in an agency that installs telemonitoring equipment into the homes of those with chronic illnesses. Nurses monitor the patients using the equipment with the goal of detecting problems before patients need to be readmitted to the hospital. Tomika will be working from her own home, with occasional meetings at the agency. She would not be visiting her patients in their homes, but rather would be assessing and interacting with them via videoconferencing. She tells you that there are still job openings and encourages you to apply.You are intrigued by this, and decide to investigate whether telenursing would be a good choice for you, too. Is telenursing in your future?Directions1. You are to research (find evidence), compose, and type a scholarly paper that describes telenursing as described above, and whether it is a good fit for you. Reflect on what you have learned in this class to date about technology, privacy rights, ethical issues, interoperability, patient satisfaction, consumer education, and other topics. Your text by Hebda (2013, Chapter 25) discusses telehealth in detail. However, your focus should be from the professional nurses role in telenursing. Do not limit your review of the literature to only what you read in your text. Nurses in various specialties need to know about the advantages and disadvantages of telenursing as it applies to their patients. For example, when you discharge a patient from an acute care setting, will a telenursing service assist that individual with staying out of the hospital? You may need to apply critical-thinking skills to development of your paper. In the conclusion of your paper, describe your current employment situation, and whether a job in telenursing would, or would not, fit with your career goals and life situation once you graduate from Chamberlain.2. Use Microsoft Word and APA formatting to develop your paper. Consult the Publication manual of the APA, 6th editionif you have questions, for example, margin size, font type and size (point), use of third person, and so forth. Take advantage of the writing service, Smarthinking, which is accessed by clicking on the link called the Tutor Source, found under the Course Home area.Also, review and use the various documents in DocSharing related to APA.3. The length of the paper should be four to five pages, excluding the title page and the reference page. Limit your references to key sources.4. The paper should contain an introduction that catches the attention of the reader with interesting facts and supporting sources of evidence, which need to be mentioned as in-text citations. Keep in mind that APA guidelines state you are not to call this an Introduction, but you should include it at the beginning of your paper. The Bodyshould present the advantages and disadvantages of telenursing from your perspective as an employee, and the patients perspective as a recipient of the care nurses provide. The Conclusion and Recommendations should summarize your findings and state your position on whether you will apply for a position with the agency.NOTE: Review the section on Academic Honesty found in the Chamberlain Course Policies. All work must be original (in your own words) unless properly cited.This assignment will automatically be submitted through Turnitin, a plagiarism detection system.Submit the completed paper to the Telenursing . . . Is It in My Future? by Sunday, 11:59 p.m. MTat the end of Week 4.

You are encouraged to cite your source(s) as it relates to your criteria slide. Other citations are permitted, but this is not a requirement for the assignment.1)Scenario Slide: This slide should include your name. Next, outline a brief scenario, then identify a patient who is seeking information about a specific disease process or diagnosis. Be sure to include the nurses assessment of learning needs and the patient or family members readiness to learn. Be specific.Example:Scenario for Mr. JonesJane Doe (your name here) Mr. Jones is a 54-year-old male recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. His wife has accompanied him to the oncologists office. Both have a high school education. Mr. Jones has no interest in his diagnosis; his father died at an early age from pancreatic cancer, and he thinks nothing can be done. Mrs. Jones is greatly interested in any treatment; she has been searching on the Internet for alternative cures. Mrs. Jones has asked the nurse for help on how to determine whether a website is credible.2)Criteria Slide: This slide should address at least fourcriteriaused to evaluate websites. View Evaluating Internet Health Information: A Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine at.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/webeval/webeval_start.html”>http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/webeval/webeval_start.html, your text, and other references. The task is to explain how to determinethe credibility of websites andteach it to the patient and/or caregiver described in the Scenario Slide.Concentrate on evaluation of information, not how to search. Assume that the patient or caregiver has basic Internet searching skills, a computer in the home, and can enter words in the query box in a search engine,such as Google, Bing, Yahoo,and so forth.The idea is to teach your patients how to evaluate websites (suspect and credible) as they relate to a specific disease process or diagnosis.The format of the criteria shouldbe logical and easy to read, for example, a table, checklist, or Q & A.Be creative! Language should be appropriate for the educational level of the audience, in other words, the patient and/or caregiver as described in the Scenario Slide.Note: This is the only slide that requires a citation.3)Suspect Site Slide:This slide should give the name and description of a suspect website. The suspect website must berelated to the disease or diagnosis identified in the scenario. However, the site does not meet the criteria for a credible site, for example, gives inaccurate information, and so forth. You must provide a working link to the site. Wikipedia is not acceptable! Explain why the site is suspect based on the criteria you outlined in the Criteria Slide.4)Credible Site Slide:This slide should give the name and description of a credible website that you would recommend to the patient and/or caregiver/family member. The website must be appropriate for the general public and address the disease process or diagnosis identified in the Scenario Slide. Avoid sites that are aimed at healthcare professionals. Explain why the site is credible based on criteriathat you outlined in the Criteria Slide.B.

Advantages and disadvantages for the patient and legal and ethical principles for the nurse of this technology will be explored.Course OutcomesThis assignment enables the student to meet the following Course Outcomes.CO #4: Investigate safeguards and decision-making support tools embedded in patient care technologies and information systems to support a safe practice environment for both patients and healthcare workers. (PO #4)CO #6: Discuss the principles of data integrity, professional ethics, and legal requirements related to data security, regulatory requirements, confidentiality, and clients right to privacy. (PO #6)PointsThis assignment is worth a total of 200 points.Due DateYour completed paper is due at the end of Week 4. Submit it to the basket in the Dropbox by Sunday at 11:59 p.m. mountain time. Post your questions to the weekly Q&A Forum. Contact your instructor if you need additional assistance. See the Course Policies regarding late assignments. Failure to submit your paper to the Dropbox on time will result in a deduction of points.BackgroundOur text (Hebda, 2013) provides us with a broad perspective on telehealth. However, the specialty of telenursing is only briefly discussed. Healthcare is readily embracing any technology to improve patient outcomes, streamline operations, and lower costs. This technology includes the use of various applications based in various environments where registered nurses indirectly provide professional nursing care.ScenarioThe following scenario serves as the basis for your paper.You have worked with Tomika for the past 5 years. Tomika shares with you that she has resigned and plans to work in an agency that installs telemonitoring equipment into the homes of those with chronic illnesses. Nurses monitor the patients using the equipment with the goal of detecting problems before patients need to be readmitted to the hospital. Tomika will be working from her own home, with occasional meetings at the agency. She would not be visiting her patients in their homes, but rather would be assessing and interacting with them via videoconferencing. She tells you that there are still job openings and encourages you to apply.You are intrigued by this, and decide to investigate whether telenursing would be a good choice for you, too. Is telenursing in your future?Directions1. You are to research (find evidence), compose, and type a scholarly paper that describes telenursing as described above, and whether it is a good fit for you. Reflect on what you have learned in this class to date about technology, privacy rights, ethical issues, interoperability, patient satisfaction, consumer education, and other topics. Your text by Hebda (2013, Chapter 25) discusses telehealth in detail. However, your focus should be from the professional nurses role in telenursing. Do not limit your review of the literature to only what you read in your text. Nurses in various specialties need to know about the advantages and disadvantages of telenursing as it applies to their patients. For example, when you discharge a patient from an acute care setting, will a telenursing service assist that individual with staying out of the hospital? You may need to apply critical-thinking skills to development of your paper. In the conclusion of your paper, describe your current employment situation, and whether a job in telenursing would, or would not, fit with your career goals and life situation once you graduate from Chamberlain.2. Use Microsoft Word and APA formatting to develop your paper. Consult the Publication manual of the APA, 6th editionif you have questions, for example, margin size, font type and size (point), use of third person, and so forth. Take advantage of the writing service, Smarthinking, which is accessed by clicking on the link called the Tutor Source, found under the Course Home area.Also, review and use the various documents in DocSharing related to APA.3. The length of the paper should be four to five pages, excluding the title page and the reference page. Limit your references to key sources.4. The paper should contain an introduction that catches the attention of the reader with interesting facts and supporting sources of evidence, which need to be mentioned as in-text citations. Keep in mind that APA guidelines state you are not to call this an Introduction, but you should include it at the beginning of your paper. The Bodyshould present the advantages and disadvantages of telenursing from your perspective as an employee, and the patients perspective as a recipient of the care nurses provide. The Conclusion and Recommendations should summarize your findings and state your position on whether you will apply for a position with the agency.NOTE: Review the section on Academic Honesty found in the Chamberlain Course Policies. All work must be original (in your own words) unless properly cited.This assignment will automatically be submitted through Turnitin, a plagiarism detection system.Submit the completed paper to the Telenursing . . .
