Overview: In Milestone One, you will begin your written work on the final project, a collaborative care guide, by drafting Section I, an introduction that identifies
and explains the research-based strategies your team will use in working with the client, Jean. As you will soon discover, these strategies will help guide the rest
of your work on this project and the development of the whole collaborative care guide.
As you prepare to submit Milestone One, keep Jean’s specific case in mind. This is the same case study you will be focusing on throughout the course as you
work on elements of your final project:
Jean is an 87-year-old woman who was admitted to Manchester Community Hospital, in Manchester, New Hampshire, after having a debilitating stroke
that paralyzed the left half of her body. She is a widow, and her three adult children live in different states. She needs assistance eating, transferring to
her wheelchair, and most other activities of daily living. Her medical issues related to the stroke are quickly being resolved, and it is time to begin
assessing her needs for discharge and post-discharge. It is important to note that Jean’s savings have been totally depleted and her medical bills are
mounting since her healthcare insurance has proven to be inadequate to cover her medical expenses. Her limited pension and social security barely
covered her living expenses prior to her stroke and are unlikely to cover the escalating expenses that she will undoubtedly encounter based on her
medical condition. Moreover, Jean has been clinically diagnosed with PTSD after being raped by a neighbor in her home two years ago. She is still
grappling with the effects of the trauma, even as the criminal case against the perpetrator slowly moves forward. Although her family modified the
home to make it more secure and less vulnerable to intrusion, her current lack of mobility is weighing heavily on her psychologically. Despite her current
issues, Jean derives great comfort from her faith as a devout Catholic. She typically has a wonderful sense of humor and is highly organized, having
worked as an elementary school teacher during her earlier years. She participates regularly in the local garden club and on her neighborhood welcoming
committee. She has a wide circle of friends with whom she interacts. Her children are currently staying in Manchester to oversee her care and to
contribute to the development of her post-discharge care plan. It is unclear whether any of the children will stay on after her discharge to help care for
Jean, but this seems unlikely unless considered essential by the medical team. An interdisciplinary team is being developed to design a comprehensive
plan for Jean’s post-discharge care.
Prompt: Based on an analysis of the case study, prepare an introduction to your final project, your collaborative care guide. In your submission, be sure to
include the following critical elements:
1. Provide an overview of the clients’ needs. This should be based on your review of Jean’s case, above. Reflect on the type of client Jean represents.
2. Identify research-based interventions and strategies to use with the client that you think will be most helpful to address her needs.
3. Explain why these interventions and strategies were selected and why they are likely to be effective. What evidence supports your selection of the
interventions and strategies you identified?
Where possible, cite scholarly research to support your work.
Guidelines for Submission: Your draft of Section I (Introduction) should be approximately 1 to 2 pages in length and should use double spacing, 12-point Times
New Roman font, and one-inch margins. It should be written in APA format.
