    The stages of assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation are linked and circular,as shown the visual image in the document. There is overlap of the stages and interconnection between stages, you start with assessment, move to planning, then implementation and evaluation, but you also often move back to assessment and planning, after you start implementing and realize you need to adapt and adjust.

    In the example of teaching a UCP based on assessment of learning need. I put the emphasis on the stem of the statement because that part is planning, don't put the emphasis on teaching. Keep in mind, in order to effectively teach adult learners, the teacher needs to assess prior knowledge first.

    i liked your reply and thank you. it must be hard to read all this and i appreciate your help. though it supposed to be simple.
    just let me point out one thing.
    "a sentence stem is a partially complete sentence. it contains your desired outcome... but leaves blank your method for achieving it. here are three examples...

    "i'd be more productive today if i...."
    "i could conquer procrastination by..."
    "eating healthier would be easier if i..."

    so the stem here will be
    teaching a ucp
    i hope that my assessors think the same way as you do and they will not think about the stem as i do.
    i mast admit i do not let things go easily, sorry for that

    gould you please as well comment on the question i asked earlier
    i definitively see collaboration in your example but what about relational knowledge? which part is "relational knowledge" here?

    by the way competency number 74 speaks about "relational practice"
    whereas competency number 80 speaks about "relational knowledge"

    Back to your original question, I believe "relational knowledge" means using your knowledge of the patient through your relationship with him/her to promote health. Similar to relational practice.

    For instance, in Dishes' example, through the nurse-patient relationship, the nurse discovered the patient-family's inability to cope with the pain. So the nurse used that knowledge to advocate to the surgeon. Relational practice and relational knowledge essentially stem from the idea that you are using your relationship with the patient as a guide to your nursing process.

    It's a fluffy concept that is familiar to Canadian grads but I'm not surprised that IENs are left wondering what the hell it means.

    I hope that was helpful. Good luck with your application

    thank you this is really good answer, I even do not have any questions to ask since you covered all I needed.
    I am surprised though that so few people could comment on the nitty gritty of nursing

    Hi magnoliya! I just want to ask question hope you dont mind to help. I m starting to write my CAS and while doing this i m still confusing if do I need to write the example in each # of competency or do I just only need to choose one competency # in assessment, one in planning one in iplementation and also in evaluation. Then co related to the sample experience. Am I in the right track doing my CAS? PLS help me. Thanks. Luisa

    what is "Cas"?

    how many competencies do you have ? a lot! it is not doable to give an example for each and every competency. it is just too much work. too many competencies.

    i would think that maybe you should choose one competency # in assessment, one in planning one in implementation and also in evaluation

    however what is your task? do not you have a specific task to do? what does it say on your exam list that you need to do?
  10. by   lhizza
    They just only said I just only need to write a sample based on my working experience. CAS means competency assessment supplement. Do you have personal contact # so that we can talk about that. If you dont mind. Really needs help. Thanks luisa
  11. by   magnoliya
    luisa i cannot talk. but i want to help

    i can write

    i know how you feel. nothing make sense because nobody cared to explain to you what to do. it happened to me too. i was very frustrated.
    my advice to you do not overthink it. because they gave you very unclear task, they do not expect a clear answer from you. just do not overthink it and do not stress out.

    they really like when nurses provide "the continuation of care"
    so my advice to you find a situation where you addressed all 4 stages of nursing process. you met a client you collected information you planed, you implemented, you evaluated.

    when you write about each of the stages mention "this particular stage is related to a particular competency" and then say which competency and why

    as long as your story makes sense, as long as it is touchy feely, they will approve it
    i think you ask these questions because you ,like myself, like exact answers. but people who right these questions ,they are completely different people. so do not even try to find exact answers.

    ask me more questions if you need to

    They give me four categories
    1. Professional responsibility and accountability
    2. Ethical practice
    3. Service to the public
    4. Self regulation
    And each category their is a lots of choices for assessment planning implementation and evaluation.
    Do I need to give also examples from all categories above mentioned? Or do I just only need to choose? Thanks
  13. by   magnoliya
    what are these categories? can you maybe scan your assignment and send it to me?

    best thing would be to give a situation that fits every category

    for example give me a situation where you provided service to public. the situation should start with assessment and finish with evaluation
    give me another situation where you demonstrated responsibility and accountability. as well, the situation should start with assessment and finish with evaluation

    maybe you demonstrated responsibility and accountability while you were providing service to public? in this case you will have one example that covers both categories. you have one example but you will need to give more explanations why your example addresses both categories. as long as you explain, it does not really matter how many examples you give. everything is interrelated in nursing and we can learn many things from the same example.

    if the situations that you provide address stages of nursing process, they will address competencies as well. you just need to chose which competencies fit your examples

    i would say, because you do not really know, to be on the safe side, you will need to adress all 4 cathegories
