Hi, I am turning in a teaching plan on Monday. I have created the teaching plan, but I do not really know what I am supposed to have in the blank sections. I was supposed to create a scenario with patient, family, or group that has a knowledge deficit. The knowledge deficit that I selected was fatigue. Could somebody check this for me and let me know if I am doing this right? I have a feeling that I am doing the evaluation section wrong. Thank you!
