Nursing Question

Learning Goal: I’m working on a nursing writing question and need support to help me learn.

Overview

Find a senior adult over the age of 60 willing to spend about an hour with you discussing their health and developing a plan to improve their quality of life. You can meet with them in person, over the phone, or online. This person can be a friend, family member, or acquaintance. Assure them that their information will remain confidential—and then be sure to keep that confidentiality in your assignment!

Directions

Complete the Medical Outcomes Study: 20-Item Short Form Survey Instrument (Links to an external site.) with the senior adult. You should ask the questions and enter their answers. Download the survey answers.

Ask your participant what gives their life meaning, and what they see as areas they could improve on that would improve their Quality of Life (QOL). Collaborate with them to set three short-term and three long-term goals that would bring more quality to their life.

Then collect all the data and write a paper using the following as a guide.

  1. Describe your applicant, including information about their age, gender, general health, and comfort level with the interview.
  2. Analyze the QOL survey you performed.
  3. Identify three areas of concern that you see involving risk.
  4. Discuss what components of a successful aging theory applies to them.
  5. Discuss how this person’s life aligns with qualities of health in the Blue Zones.
  6. Collaborate with your participant in creating three short-term and three long-term goals that they feel are most important to improving their quality of life.
  7. Describe what you have learned about your role as a nurse practitioner in this setting.
  8. Ensure that your paper is no longer than 3 to 5 pages, not including the title and reference pages.
  9. Use APA (7th edition) formatting for in-text citations.
  10. Use at least three scholarly references, preferably from provider-based or NP-based journals.
  11. Use the Quality of Life Survey Template (Word) (Links to an external site.) to organize your paper.
  12. Review the Quality of Life Assignment lecture in Week 2 Lectures and the APA guidelines.

If an Internet connection is not available during your interview, print the survey to ensure that you ask the exact question and answer options, then enter the person’s answers later and print the results as an Adobe PDF.
