Frequently Asked Questions
1. Remember when choosing your priority problems and interventions
assessment/evaluation is not intervention
signs & symptoms are not problems
2.  How many collaborative and independent interventions can we use as the video confused me?
You can use up to 3 collaborative and 1 independent intervention or you can use 2 collaborative and 2 independent. Because of the emergency situations with both patients you will probably need to use more collaborative depending on your priority problems.
3.  Do the in text references count as part of the word count?
Yes they do. The reference page and cover page do not.
You can go + or – 10% on the word count.
4.  What references are we allowed to use?
We would prefer journal articles but you can also use books. The only 2 web sites we will allow are the Asthma Foundation or the Heart Foundation. References can be no more than 7 years old or 2011.  You need a minimum of 20 references for this essay.
5. Can we use interventions already written up on the medical documentation?
Yes you can but in some instances the order may need to be changed. You will determine this from your research e.g. oxygen your research might lead to another device, litres per mintues or concentration delivered
6. Can we use websites as references?
Only the Heart Foundation or Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
7. Can I use subheadings and do I need a title for the essay?
No you do not use subheadings in an academic essay and you do not need a title for the essay
8. Does my information in the body of the essay need to evidence based?
Yes absolutley if your information is not in text referenced it will be seen as invalid and does not receive marks
*** I have attached both case studies choose which one works better for you. I have also attached a sample copy of clinical reasoning cycle just in-case it is different to what you already know. And lastly, I have attached a template to assist with answering assessment, not important but i thought it would be helpful.**
For any queries pls email: thupten_inzas@hotmail.com (underscore in between, sometimes creates confusion).
