Paper Outline – Leadership practice Experience Paper
This assignment is two parts . One assignment is outline of this assignment and other is full paper of this assignment. I copied one sample which is given by university. You have to make it one outline the same way need to be change the topic. Atleast 6 to 10 references should be required with above 2010 year. In this outline based on that references you have to be completed the full paper assignment. The outline need around 1 or 1.5 pages just summary of the full paper. This outline should give to me on today itself. Full paper assignment you can take one or two weeks time. Make sure selected topic you can get enough literature.
Outline-Improving Self-management of Diabetes
In this paper I will describe an area of practice concern for diabetic patients and I will suggest practice revisions based on best practices.
Introduction [Define problem, population, and current practice]
Diabetes is a chronic illness and patients need to learn to self-manage all aspects of their care in order to achieve and maintain optimal health. While newly diagnosed patients are the primary focus of concern, in my 30 years of experience working with patients who are living with diabetes, I have discovered that many lack up-to-date information on self- management. Lack of understanding of self-management of diabetes results in sub-optimal outcomes for this population. In the small hospital where I work, patient care and clinical management is fragmented. Patients often receive little real assessment of their level of diabetes self-management expertise.
Additionally, while their blood glucose levels and diet are managed by nurses, technicians, dietitians, and medical staff, there are many lost opportunities to enhance patient learning and self-management during hospitalization. When the patient is discharged to home they are likely to revert to the same practices they had prior to admission. In the community, patients living with diabetes are likely to be followed by their family doctor, often a different endocrinologist or internist, and perhaps nurses and others in diabetic clinics or in community care.
Based on a review of the literature, I believe that the development of an online diabetes module that allows patients to access information, upload blood sugar readings, and keep online exercise, diet, foot assessment, and medication logs would greatly enhance patient knowledge and diabetes self-management. It would also create the potential for continuity across the health care sectors and would allow for measurement of change in patient outcomes and satisfaction with care. In this essay I will outline the best practices related to diabetic management and the tasks and resources that would be required to change diabetic monitoring and improvement of self-management.
