In Chapter 5 of your Critical Thinking Tactics for Nurses text, there are six case scenarios on pages 107–126. Each scenario is unique in that it addresses one or more of the five criteria for achieving quality and safety.
For this discussion:
1.Read through each of these case scenarios, and then choose one of the scenarios, along with its associated IOM Criteria for Achieving Quality, to reflect on in your discussion this week.
2.Read the discussion and additional information at the end of each of the case scenarios.
3.Respond to the discussion at the end of your chosen scenario. Listed at the beginning of each scenario are the Tactics, which include questions that are specific for each scenario. Be sure to address these in your response. (For example: TACTICS 5-1, 5-2, 5-3, etc.)
Use the GREAT Discussion and Feedback Guidelines and the Discussion Participation Scoring Guide to learn more about the expectations for discussion posts and how your work will be evaluated. Your initial post should be at least 150 words, and you must make reference to the work of another writer (either as a quotation, paraphrase, or summary) to provide support for your ideas. The source can be the course text, another relevant book, any assigned readings, or an article you find on your own through the Capella library. When you incorporate the other writer’s ideas in your work, use APA citation style to give credit to that writer. Remember that an APA citation includes both the in-text citation (the author’s last name and the year of publication) and the full reference for the source.
