MIND/CONCEPT MAP & GORDONS FHPs

Posted

Has 1 years experience.

okay, let me just start out by saying that i have the worst professor there is! she is cold, so unfair, has the worst attitude and give these dirty looks when you ask ?s like you are stupid, and she talks down to you, like you are nothing... :angryfire ..ughhhhh........okay now that that is out of my system, i need some help.

in our class, we had to interview an elderly person on 6 of gordon's functional health patterns, we had to write a paper for each pattern on their weakness and strengths and assign a nanda to each.

now we need to make a concept map of this as well. and my professor says that we are adult learners and that there are examples in the text and to go from there....so i am here hoping that somebody has a templete or a example for me to help put me on the right track....

anyhelp would be appreciated!!!

Well, here is an example. This is a web that I did for my class. I've attached the one as an example and a blank web.

I've attached it as a pdf, but the file was originally a ppt (powerpoint), so you could type right into it. when you save it to your computer just save it as filename.ppt if you want to type right into it too!

Hope this helps!

lifesacomedy. . .my adobe reader could not open either of these files.

Yeah, it's wierd. Something with the conversion. I tried it too and it didn't work.

When it asks what you want to open with, pick PowerPoint. Then it should work.

:0)

(if it doesn't ask, right click, open with..., choose powerpoint)

you have posted about using gordon's functional health patterns before. i am unclear if you need help where the health patterns are concerned or not. the health patterns are merely one way of dividing the collection of information you are getting from the patient during step #1, the assessment phase, of the nursing process. here are several weblinks that also have some guidelines on questions you can ask during this assessment phase when following gordon's plan:

as for concept mapping, there is a sticky thread on the nursing student assistance forum that gathered together all the pertinent information on this. it includes links to other threads about concept mapping on the student forums here which have weblinks to awesome information that explain concept mapping for care plans step-by-step, samples of student concept maps that several students thoughtfully posted, links to free software you can use to create the concept map for your assignment and a link to a concept map constructor from one of the nursing textbook publishers.

there is also a book that was written on how to do concept mapping for care plans. i have listed it on one of the care map threads in the above link, but this is the book: concept mapping: a critical-thinking approach to care planning by pamela mchugh schuster. when i bought it the cost was only $26 and it expands on each step of care planning mostly and then putting the information into a concept map. you can also see a chapter from pamela schuster's book on creating a concept map here: http://www.fadavis.com/related_resources/1_1890_1.pdf and i recommend that you copy and save it. also see http://cord.org/txcollabnursing/onsite_conceptmap.htm

lastly, remember that a concept map is merely another way of physically presenting a care plan. a care plan is nothing more than problem solving. that means determining what the patient's nursing problems are. in our world of nursing everyone wants a diagnosis plastered on the problem, or in other words they want the nursing problem given a name. then, you develop strategies to do something about these problems (nursing interventions). this all requires using a tool called the nursing process:

  1. assessment (collect data from medical record, do a physical assessment of the patient, assess adl's, look up information about your patient's medical diseases/conditions to learn about the signs and symptoms and pathophysiology)
    • a physical assessment of the patient
    • assessment of the patient's ability and any assistance they need to accomplish their adls (activities of daily living) with the disease
      • for this and health history, you are being specifically asked to use gordon's 11 functional health needs

[*]data collected from the medical record (information in the doctor's history and physical, information in the doctor's progress notes, test result information, notes by ancillary healthcare providers such as physical therapists and dietitians

[*]knowing the pathophysiology, signs/symptoms, usual tests ordered, and medical treatment for the medical disease or condition that the patient has. this includes knowing about any medical procedures that have been performed on the patient, their expected consequences during the healing phase, and potential complications. if this information is not known, then you need to research and find it.

[*]determination of the patient's problem(s)/nursing diagnosis (make a list of the abnormal assessment data, match your abnormal assessment data to likely nursing diagnoses, decide on the nursing diagnoses to use). it helps to have a book with nursing diagnosis reference information in it. there are a number of ways to acquire this information.

[*]planning (write measurable goals/outcomes and nursing interventions)

  • goals/outcomes are the predicted results of the nursing interventions you will be ordering and performing. they have the following overall effect on the problem:
    • improve the problem or remedy/cure it
    • stabilize it
    • support its deterioration

    [*]how to write goal statements: https://allnurses.com/forums/2509305-post158.html

    [*]interventions are of four types

    • assess/monitor/evaluate/observe (to evaluate the patient's condition)
      • note: be clear that this is assessment as an intervention and not assessment done as part of the initial data collection during step 1.

      [*]care/perform/provide/assist (performing actual patient care)

      [*]teach/educate/instruct/supervise (educating patient or caregiver)

      [*]manage/refer/contact/notify (managing the care on behalf of the patient or caregiver)

[*]implementation (initiate the care plan)

[*]evaluation (determine if goals/outcomes have been met)

wow! Daytonite is an amazing resource! Forget my rinky-dink attempt at a concept map!

i'm going to go read her post in detail now. :0)

thank you for so much info! no it's not the fhps that i need help with, i have already done that it's the concept/mind mapping of those 6 patterns that i did on a patient that i can't seem to find a templete or a way to do it.

i posted the weblink to the cypress college's template for a concept map on that thread somewhere.

the constructor from one of the textbooks will also create a concept map for you after you input your data into the program.

i have the mosby cd that creates a map for you but i don't like what it prints out. maybe i just haven't played around with it enough to tweak the colors.

at the college where i go we have access to microsoft visio with which you can create a concept map because we create organizational charts with it. i have heard that you can go onto microsoft visio website and download and use a free portion of it.

you can actually create a concept map using table or drawing commands on a word program and a lot of patience. you can print text inside table boxes or drawing shapes.

yeah i tried that word way but you need alot of patience and time, 2 of which i am very slim on these days!! thank you though i will go to microsoft visio and also that website!!

i appreciate all your help!!!!!!:icon_hug:

There are weblinks to sites that have concept mapping programs listed at the end of the cord.org website. I think that one of the websites that VickyRN posted on the other thread on the Care Map sticky thread also lists a whole bunch of concept mapping websites as well. You need to get into that sticky thread and explore those weblinks there too.

lifesacomedy. . .when you download a file onto allnurses in an acrobat format, that is how anyone must open it. My acrobat reader will not even open these files. Why don't you contact one of the moderators and ask them how to download the files so people can open and read them? If it can be done, they will assist you.
