Post-Operative Case Study

Part A

Critical Thinking Framework


Maximum length: 1 page (250 words)

Using a standard size (8.5 x 11) document, develop a Critical Thinking Framework that includes:

Relevant Case Study:

  • Identify relevant data from the case study.

Clinical Manifestations/Complications:

  • Identify relevant clinical manifestations from the case study and include related research (5 minimum).
  • Clinical Manifestations must be physiological and psychosocial.

Priority Nursing Diagnosis/Problems :

  • Identify two (2) priority-nursing diagnoses based on the selected clinical manifestations.
  • Nursing diagnosis must be physiological and psychosocial.


  • Identify five (5) treatment and/or illness prevention strategies (priority) related to each nursing diagnosis.
  • Identify evidence based treatment/prevention strategies.
  • Please note: Treatment or illness prevention strategies must include a wide range of activities such as health teaching, nutritional planning, nursing interventions and drug therapy.
  • Collaborative practice must be included to demonstrate knowledge of roles/responsibilities of the health care team members.
  • All treatment or prevention strategies should be specific and client centered (relate back to client and context identified in the case study). Please ensure that all interventions include in text citations and references.
  • Please highlight the selected pathway in this Critical Thinking Framework that will be used for your paper (Part B).

Part B

Scholarly Written Paper

Include introduction and a conclusion relevant to the case study

  • Provide a written paper related to the selected case-study with evidence-based rationales to justify the links that you have made in the Critical Thinking Framework (Part A). Include evidence-based rationales to support the path that you have chosen.

Relevant Case Study Data:

  • Provide evidence-based rationales to support your selection of the relevant case study data from the case scenario.
  • Use peer reviewed articles to support your rationales.

Clinical Manifestations:

  • Provide evidence-based rationales to support your selection of priority Clinical Manifestation(s).
  • Selected two (2) clinical manifestations to discuss. These clinical manifestations must relate to the selected nursing diagnoses
  • Use peer reviewed articles to support your rationales.

Nursing Diagnosis:

  • Select only one (1) Nursing Diagnosis
  • Provide evidenced based rationale to support your selection of the one (1) priority nursing diagnosis.
