AGING ACROSS THE LIFESPAN

 

Birth through Adolescence Scenarios

 

The news headlines provide a constant supply of social scenarios that present us with opportunities to contemplate socioemotional development. How are the emotional and social characteristics of a child affected by trauma, adversity, or challenge? Conversely, what role does a child’s socioemotional development play in shaping society’s response to issues such as teen pregnancy and bullying?

To prepare for this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources.

By Day 3, post a comprehensive response to one of the following:

 


  • What are the threats to the emotional development of a child born to a teen parent versus an older parent?

  • When children commit violent crimes, should they be tried as adults?

  • What makes early childhood and young adulthood a vulnerable time for humans to be affected by bullying?


Include specific examples to help support your position. Be sure to use supporting documentation and cite your sources in correct APA format.

Application: Synthesis Paper

Socioemotional development determines how we see ourselves and how others see us. This two-way interchange begins during our earliest experiences with our primary care givers and continues through to our final moments.

This week, you will begin work on a paper in which you will synthesize information presented in Weeks 4 and 5. The Synthesis Paper is due by Day 7 of Week 5.

 

To prepare for this Synthesis Paper, review this week’s Learning Resources. Then select a socioemotional issue, such as self-esteem, risk taking, body image, gender identity, disability, forming relationships, or another issue of your choosing.

 

To complete this Synthesis Paper, write a 2- to 3-page paper in which you examine how the issue you select manifests in each of the following developmental stages:

 

  • Early childhood
  • Adolescence
  • Early adulthood
  • Middle adulthood
  • Late adulthood

You should provide examples of the issue you select at each developmental stage of human aging. Cite at least two sources from the Learning Resources in your paper.

Your written assignments must follow APA guidelines. Be sure to support your work with specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and additional scholarly sources as appropriate. Refer to the Essential Guide to APA Style for Walden Students to ensure that your in-text citations and reference list are correct.

    Adolescents are often the brunt of jokes and derision for their perceived lack of common sense. How often have you heard, or even said, to an adolescent, “where is your brain?” or “what were you thinking?” This segment, from the PBS series Frontline, examines what is actually happening inside the developing adolescent brain.

APPLICATION DUE SUNDAY

Application: Decision Support Systems

 

To prepare for this Application Assignment, review this week’s readings and websites. Then pick ONE scenario below to address for this week’s Application.

 

Construct a convincing argument in 400-500 words that explains the benefits and the challenges of using a CDS in the clinical situation you choose. Use your readings to support your rationale.

 

The following three scenarios depict examples of the use of CDS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems, 2012, Retrieved from http://s3.amazonaws.com/rdcms-himss/files/production/public/HIMSSorg/Content/files/CDS101WebSite.pdf:

 

Scenario A
You are a nurse on a busy surgery unit in an acute care hospital. Every time you administer a medication, you are required to scan the bar codes of your patient’s wristband and the medication. Occasionally, this process prompts an alert that the medication you are about to administer is contra-indicated for your patient.

 

Scenario B
You are a primary care physician in a large group practice that uses an electronic health record (EHR). At the beginning of each visit, you view a dashboard of preventive care measures – like flu vaccine, colon cancer screening, cholesterol tests – that are due for your patient, based on age, medical history (problem list), and medication list stored in the EHR.

Scenario C
You are a care manager in an emergency department. Thirty patients are in the unit right now, and new lab results, imaging studies, and orders are constantly being posted on all of them. You have a visual “air traffic” tracking display which shows which patients have not been seen yet, which have new orders to process, which have abnormal lab results, which ones have been in the unit more than four hours, which have inpatient beds ready, and more. Your status display filters and reformats all the information to help you know where to direct your attention next.

Your written assignments must follow APA guidelines. Be sure to support your work with specific citations from this weeks Learning Resources and additional scholarly sources as appropriate. Refer to the Essential Guide to APA Style for Walden Students to ensure your in-text citations and reference list are correct.
