Asthma is a respiratory disorder that affects children and adults. Advanced practice nurses often provide treatment to patients with these disorders. Sometimes patients require immediate treatment, making it essential that you recognize and distinguish minor asthma symptoms from serious, life-threatening ones. Since symptoms and attacks are often induced by a trigger, advanced practice nurses must also help patients identify their triggers and recommend appropriate management options. Like many other disorders, there are various approaches to treating and managing care for asthmatic patients depending on individual patient factors.
One method that supports the clinical decision making of drug therapy plans for asthmatic patients is the stepwise approach, which you explore in this Assignment.
Reflect on drugs used to treat asthmatic patients, including long-term control and quick relief treatment options for patients. Think about the impact these drugs might have on patients, including adults and children.
Consider how you might apply the stepwise approach to address the health needs of a patient in your practice.
Reflect on how stepwise management assists health care providers and patients in gaining and maintaining control of the disease.
Create a 5- to 6-slide PowerPoint presentation that can be used in a staff development meeting on presenting different approaches for implementing the stepwise approach for asthma treatment. Be sure to address the following:
Describe long-term control and quick relief treatment options for the asthma patient from your practice as well as the impact these drugs might have on your patient.
Explain the stepwise approach to asthma treatment and management for your patient.
Explain how stepwise management assists health care providers and patients in gaining and maintaining control of the disease. Be specific.
uty Head, Office and Site Managers report to the Associate Head who reports to the Executive Head. The Office and Site Mangers carry out most of procurement, financial and facilities management tasks. The Associate and Deputy Head manage HR and Marketing whilst overseeing the school budget. There is a strong need for a SBM in our school so he/she can manage the additional responsibilities the heads and deputy have undertaken, to ensure their time is dedicated to high standard of teaching and learning, not dealing with certain staff issues or the day-to-day budget, this will also enable more productivity from all resources through better management, a SBM would play an important strategic role in implementing best value by making the most of school resources in the most sustainable and environmentally friendly manner, so more is available for the school’s core activities. 1.4 Own Professional role and relationship with staff and SLT: My school works very closely with both stakeholders internal and external, acknowledges and actively monitors the concerns raised and takes their interests appropriately into account in decision-making however, from a business point of view I believe our external stakeholder group are more influential as some like the governors determine the schools budget, staffing structure and when required appoint Headteachers. LA monitors the performance of maintained schools in its area and ensures all improvement necessary, is carried out effectively and expeditiously. My role consists of daily involvement with our internal stakeholders, I believe stakeholder engagement is vital to the success and improvement in a school, I issue weekly newsletters to parents with school activity updates, arrange weekly staff meetings and assemblies for pupils, this is to ensure internal stakeholders are kept informed and the school is securing the community’s obdurate support. “Community-engagement strategies are also widely considered central to successful school improvement by many individuals and organizations that work with public schools” (Great School Partnership, 2014:1) As an admin officer reporting to the office manager, my role consists of: undertaking all office administration including weekly HR returns. As a recent member of the admin team I have developed exceptional working relationships with my colleagues and leadership team. My work experience and corporate background allows me to conduct myself in a professional manner and create a cohesive working environment. As an aspiring SBM and referring to the NASBM framework, I believe I obtain the required skillset to become a SBM. In my previous role as HR Supervisor I developed my personal skills to provide direction and facilitated change in the work place, I supervised staff and monitored their progress. I have acquired transferable skills in relation to process, systems and procedures. I currently fall in tier 1 on the NASBM Professional Standards disciplines, but believe with my previous experience can also fall in tier 2 in the HR and Marketing area, I am certain by completing this course I will develop my skills further in areas such as Finance and Infrastructure.
