This assignment will develop students’ ability to identify factors which inhibit independence and diminish quality of life, require consideration of issues that inform behaviour, and advocate practical strategies for modification. Students will have the
opportunity to demonstrate critical thinking, clinical reasoning and the principles of caring for people with a chronic illness or disability are applied.

Students will choose from one of two case studies that display multiple modifiable risks. Students can then choose ONE risk factor to focus their assessment on. Students are required to develop a narrated PowerPoint on behaviour change for patients with multiple chronic diseases or disabilities. It is expected that appropriate evidence-based literature will be used to support answer the following questions:
1. Briefly summarise the case study and define the chosen modifiable risk factor behaviour.
2. Outline factors that may contribute to the behaviour (why the behaviour happens), and how the behaviour will impact on the chronic illness or disability.
3. Identify a health behaviour theory that may be appropriate to explain the behaviour, and can be used as the basis for an intervention to modify that behaviour
4. Outline and justify one (1) innovative and practical strategy that can be implemented at home by person in the case study to encourage risk factor behaviour modification, why it is a relevant strategy for the case study, and what the RN’s role will be within this strategy.
5. Outline and justify one (1) appropriate (real) service/support/group in your
area able to assist. Include a brief description of the service (relevant to the clinician, not the consumer), why this service will assist, how will it be funded, and what the RN’s role will be within this strategy. Please include contact details for the service (a website or phone number) on the PPT slide.
Instructions on how to record a slide show with narration and slide timings in PowerPoint are available on the LEO assessment tile.
Case Study 1
Alan, 75 years old, retired from the public service four years ago. He lives alone in a second storey apartment on a busy main road. Alan no longer drives due to vision issues, has a BMI of 34.9, and is diagnosed with osteoarthritis, hypertension, hepatitis C, skin cancer and polycystic kidney disease. He has recently had a fall getting out of the shower but did not sustain any injuries. Alan spends his time watching Netflix or playing games on his Ipad. Alan leaves his house only to see his GP every two months to renew his multiple prescriptions and walks next door to the petrol station to purchase food supplies every few days. Alan has current referrals from the GP to a physiotherapist, dietician, occupational therapist and has appointments for all within the next 6 weeks.
Case Study 2
Parker is a 19-year-old full time student, studying marketing. Parker has a history of asthma, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety, depression. Parker's mother coordinated schedules, diet, medications, doctors’ appointments; however, she passed away four months ago, and Parker now lives alone. Parker now often runs out of prescribed medications, schedules but fails to attend for appointments, relies on take-out food, and isn’t sure where his repeat prescriptions are. Parker was recently fired from his job at McDonald's due to poor attendance from increasing anxiety, and failed three units at uni last semester. Parker has current referrals from the GP to a physiotherapist, dietician, occupational therapist and has appointments for all within the next 6 weeks.
