People aged 65 years and older constitute 50% of health service users. As people age, they experience changes to their physical and mental function, and can experience many social changes in terms of family and career. For those requiring health services, these changes are further complicated by illness (Moyle, Parker & Bramble, 2014).
The aim of this assignment is to apply the theoretical knowledge gained from modules 1 and 2 of this course to a case study that you have encountered in a Bachelor of Nursing clinical placement. Being able to discuss a case and design a care plan around that case are important skills for all registered nurses. Practising this process will help you to feel more confident to provide nursing care to an older person in the clinical setting.
prepare a 2000-word case study report. There are two parts to this report:
write a 500-word case study in which you discuss the care of an older person (over 65 years, or over 55 years if the person identifies as an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander) who has at least TWO (2) co-morbidities that impact their functional status*.
For Part 2 you need to create a 1500-word comprehensive nursing care plan for that older person.
Part 1 – As this assignment is a Case Study Discussion, you need to:
● Introduce the purpose of the case study.
● Identify the person (the case) and take care to preserve the confidentiality of that person; you should use a pseudonym.
● Briefly discuss the two co-morbidities that impact their functional status.
● Briefly examine a specific, and recent environmental change impacting this older person.
● With reference to current, scholarly literature, discuss the extent to which specific stereotypes of older people are having a negative impact on the health of the person, their health care and their health outcomes.
Part 2 – In your comprehensive Care Plan you need to:
• Select and justify the top three care priorities (objectives) for nursing care (you can use dot points if you wish).
• Propose and discuss evidenced-based nursing interventions to manage the three care priorities.
● Describe a strategy that you might implement to evaluate whether the proposed interventions successfully manage the three care priorities (that is, how will you know the interventions have worked?).
free Wi-Fi connection, and it encourages its customers to sit and spend time at its tables. It is common to see a Starbucks location filled with customers who are drinking the coffee beverages while working on a laptop, electronic tablet, or some other electronic device (Dalavagas, 2016). For these top two strengths, Starbucks needs to use a strategy that will allow the company to take advantage of them. The best strategy to encapsulate the top two most significant advantages is for Starbucks to launch more marketing and advertising campaigns to highlight the Starbucks Experience. What this will do is educate consumers who are not aware of the Starbucks Experience to let them know what it is while reinforcing the brand reputation for a high quality coffeehouse that creates a calm atmosphere for its customers to sit and enjoy their beverages and snacks while on their electronic devices and free Wi-Fi connection (Dalavagas, 2016). Starbucks also has weaknesses, despite its overwhelming success. One of its largest weaknesses is the company’s dependence on its segments in the United States. Because there is such a dependence on the sales and revenues that are generated in the United States locations of Starbucks, it represents a lack of international dominance for the coffeehouse. With a virtual total dependence on the United States, it means that an economic crisis in this country could be very damaging for the entire Starbucks brand and financial success (Dalavagas, 2016). A second significant weakness for Starbucks is the slow expansion that the company is having in the European and other countries. Research findings suggest that “…the Europe, Middle East, and Africa segment only contributed 6% to revenues in fiscal 2015” (Dalavagas, 2016, p. 1). Without any significant contribution to total revenues coming from international locations, Starbucks cannot be as successful as it wants to be. What is also important about this weakness is that in other countries, especially the European countries, coffee is a beverage that is consumed by many. Therefore, it presents a great opportunity for Starbucks to tap into the international market in these countries, yet for some reason the coffeehouse powerhouse is not performing well or taking full advantage of these countries (Dalavagas, 2016). To remedy these two significant weaknesses, it is important for Starbucks to use a proper strategy. The strategy that Starbucks should expand its international locations. In addition to establishing a greater number of international locations, Starbucks should also launch better marketing and advertising campaigns to make its presence known in the new international markets. This would be a good strategy because it could help to stimulate international sales while also decreasing the company’s dependence on its sales within the United States (Dalavagas, 2016). Starbucks’ Resources, Capabilities, and Core Competencies For the Starbucks Corporation, there are important resources, capabilities, and competencies that are used. The resources and capabilities are actually grouped together. The first of these is the prime and strategic locations that Starbucks has. Many of the Starbucks locations are in high-traffic and high-visibility areas. Second, Starbucks is a global brand that is recognized and has equity. Third, Starbucks has a strong aesthetic appeal and concepts within and outside of its stores. This helps to create the warm atmosphere that plays a major role in the Starbucks Experience (Geereddy, 2014). Fourth, there is the large size and strong global presence of Starbucks. Research states that there are Starbucks locations in more than 60 countries, even though the greatest presence for Starbucks is within the United States. Fifth, there is the resource and capability of its effective human resource management and company culture. Sixth, there is the leveraging technology and mobile outlets that Starbucks has.
