Alternate Activity Location Required: No
Simulation Learning Objectives (Identify related Course Learning Outcome and ProgramTerminal Outcome by number only) The Student group will:
Demonstrate understanding of assessment of a person experiencing CVA.(CLO 1,2,3 , PLO 1,2,3)
Carry out a focused neurological assessment of a patient who has a stroke using the Canadian Neurological Scale Tool
Assess vital signs and patient’s symptoms/concerns
Carry out appropriate interventions in response to assessment findings
Identify assessment findings which could lead to complications
Identify and consult appropriate resources while assessing, planning (including prior to lab), and implementing care. (CLO 1,2,3,6 PLO 1,2,3,6)
Respond appropriately to family member question(s) (CLO 1, 2, 3, 6 PLO 1, 2, 3, 6)
Participate in creating SBAR report at the end of the simulation (CLO 3, PLO 3)
Measurement of Objectives
