2.2 Approach to Learning1. Blended Learning ActivityBlended learning activities have been embedded throughout the unit content to enhance the student learning experiences through the use of tutorials, clinical practice units, audio visual material, small group work, and onlinequiz material. Access to a computer and the internet is essential in order to be able to: access course materials; toparticipate in discussion groups; and to access additional resources provided by the lecturer during the session.See link for further information:http://www.westernsydney.edu.au/currentstudents/current students/services and facilities/uwsonline student support2. Tutorial/WorkshopA tutorial/workshop/seminar is a small group activity that enables you to have lecture content explained by the tutorif required. You will then be able to apply, explore and debate the content through interactive learning activities withother students.3. Group WorkGroup work enhances student learning. Through planned group activities, and discussion with other students, youwill have the opportunity to clarify your own thoughts and understandings of unit concepts. Group work also offersthe opportunity to cooperate in a team situation and to learn skills that will assist you to work effectively in a healthcare team32.3 Assessment SummaryThe assessment items in this unit are designed to enable you to demonstrate that you have achieved the unit learningoutcomes.

Explain in a visual format (concept map) the causes, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnostic procedures, management, course, prognosis, and prevention of systolic heart failure (Learning outcomes 1 and5).2. Explain the underlying pathophysiology of the clinical manifestations of an acute exacerbation of chronic systolicheart failure (Learning outcomes 1 and 5).3. Discuss nursing strategies and evidence-based rationales to manage a patient with an acute exacerbation ofchronic systolic heart failure – acute pulmonary oedema (Learning outcomes 2, 4 and 5).4. Describe the nursing role and responsibilities in the use of pharmacological interventions related to an acuteexacerbation of chronic systolic heart failure (Learning outcomes 3 and 5).DetailsYou are to develop a concept map for the topic systolic heart failure and answer three questions related toan acute exacerbation systolic heart failure. References are to include six (6) recent, relevant referencesincluding journal articles, textbook material and evidence-based resources.Concept Map (250 words)– The concept map must be computer generated. A template will be provided on VUWS under the assessmentstab.– Concept boxes should have titles with relevant content summarised within the box.– The summarised content may be in point format and size 10 font (Arial or Times New Roman) may be usedon the concept map.– Concept boxes must be linked using lines and linking words/phrases to demonstrate logical relationships betweenconcepts.– Most of the information for your concept map will be drawn from the answers to your guided questions.– Referencing of your concept map is not required.Guided Questions (1250 words)Case studyMrs Brown, a 78 year-old female, was admitted to the Emergency Department at 6am after waking up with severebreathlessness. Her family informed you that the patient has a history of heart failure that had been diagnosed two5years ago. On admission to the Emergency Department the signs & symptoms were:– Severe dyspnoea– Respiratory rate of 24 breaths/minute– SpO2 85%, on room air– BP 170/95mmHg– Pulse rate of 120 beats/minute– Auscultation of lungs identifies bilateral basal cracklesMrs Brown was connected to an ECG monitor that showed atrial fibrillation. A diagnosis of acute exacerbation ofchronic systolic heart failure was made.Question 1. (650 words) (Learning outcome 1 and 5)Explain the pathogenesis causing the clinical manifestations with which Mrs Brown presented.Question 2. (400words) (Learning outcomes 2, 4 and 5)Discuss two high priority nursing strategies to manage Mrs Brown and provide evidence-based rationales for thesestrategies.Question 3. (200 words) (Learning outcome 3 and 5)Two of the drugs that were given to Mrs Brown were IV Furosemide (Lasix) and sublingual Glyceryl Trinitrate (GTN).a. Discuss the mechanism of action of these two drugs, and relate to the underlying pathogenesis of an acuteexacerbation of chronic systolic heart failure.When answering questions:– Responses are to use full sentences, paragraphs, correct spelling and grammar. Although this is not an essay.using paragraphs will help strengthen your discussion and add clarity. Try to stick to one central theme in eachparagraph.– The word limit for the guided questions is 1250 words.

You mustkeep a copy of all assignments submitted for marking.Turnitin– The Turnitin plagiarism prevention system may be used within this unit. Turnitin is accessed via logging intovUWS for the unit. If Turnitin is being used with this unit, this means that your assignments have to besubmitted through the Turnitin system. Turnitin from iParadigms is a web-based text-matching software thatidentifies and reports on similarities between documents. It is also widely utilised as a tool to improve academicwriting skills. Turnitin compares electronically submitted papers against the following:– Current and archived web: Turnitin currently contains over 24 billion web pages including archived pages– Student papers: including Western Sydney University student submissions since 2007– Scholarly literature: Turnitin has partnered with leading content publishers, including library databases,text-book publishers, digital reference collections and subscription-based publications (e.g. Gale, Proquest, Emerald and Sage)– Turnitin is used by over 30 universities in Australia and is increasingly seen as an industry standard. It isan important tool to assist students with their academic writing by promoting awareness of plagiarism.Bysubmitting your assignment to Turnitin you will be certifying that:– I hold a copy of this assignment if the original is lost or damaged– No part of this assignment has been copied from any other student’s work or from any other source exceptwhere due acknowledgement is made in the assignment– No part of the assignment has been written for me by any other person/s– I have complied with the specified word length for this assignment– I am aware that this work may be reproduced and submitted to plagiarism detection software programs forthe purpose of detecting possible plagiarism (which may retain a copy on its database for future plagiarismchecking).Self-Plagiarising– You are to ensure that no part of any submitted assignment for this unit or product has been submitted byyourself in another (previous or current) assessment from any unit, except where appropriately referenced, andwith prior permission from the Lecturer/Tutor/Unit Co-ordinator of this unit.Late Submission– If you submit a late assessment, without receiving approval for an extension of time, (see next item), you willbe penalised by 10% per day for up to 10 days. In other words, marks equal to 10% of the assignment’s weightwill be deducted from the mark awarded.– For example, if the highest mark possible is 50, 5 marks will be deducted from your awarded mark for each lateday.– Saturday and Sunday are counted as one calendar day each.– Assessments will not be accepted after the marked assessment task has been returned to students.– This is consistent with Clause 51 of the Western Sydney University’s Assessment Policy – Criteria and StandardsBased Assessment.Extension of Due Date for SubmissionExtensions are only granted in exceptional circumstances. To apply for an extension of time, locate an applicationform via the Western Sydney University homepage or copy the following link:https://www.westernsydney.edu.au/currentstudents/current students/formsApplication forms must be submitted to the Unit Coordinator/Convenor. Requests for extension should be made asearly as possible and submitted within policy deadlines. Appropriate, supporting documentation must be submittedwith the application. An application for an extension does not automatically mean that an extension will be granted.Assessments will not be accepted after the marked assessment task has been returned to students.Resubmission Resubmission of assessment items will not normally be granted if requested.11Application for Special ConsiderationIt is strongly recommended that you attend all scheduled learning activities to support your learning. If you havesuffered misadventure, illness, or you have experienced exceptional circumstances that have prevented your attendanceat class or your completion and submission of assessment tasks, you may need to apply for Special Consideration via theWestern Sydney University website. http://www.westernsydney.edu.au/currentstudents/current students/servicesand facilities/special consideration2 or the Student Centre/Sydney City Campus Reception.
