The following is the writing requirements for this assignment which shall be place unto four (4) Power Point Presentation Slides.
A. My name appears on the Scenario Power Point Slide/Slide # 1; Joel Reta, RN
I. Scenario Slide Example: This slide should include my name; Joel Reta. Next, outline briefly the scenario, then identify patient who is seeking information about a specific disease process or diagnosis. Be sure to include the nurse’s assessment of learning needs and the patient or family member’s readiness to learn. Be specific.
II. HERE IS THE SCENARIO TO BE USED IN SCENARIO SLIDE/SLIDE #1:

d. His wife has accompanied him to the oncologist’s office.

h. Mrs. Flores has asked the nurse for help on how to determine whether a website is credible or not.
B. Only four (4) slides shall be submitted. Points will be deducted for additional slides according to my Nursing informatics Course Instructor. The four (4) slides pertain to the Scenario.
I. Slide/Slide #1: This slide should include my name; Joel Reta, RN. Next, outline a brief scenario, then identify a patient who is seeking information about a specific disease process or diagnosis. Be sure to include the nurse’s assessment of learning needs and the patient or family member’s readiness to learn.
II. Criteria Power Point Slide/Slide #2: NOTE: THIS IS THE ONLY SLIDE THAT REQUIRES A CITATION OF WHERE THE INFORMATION IS OBTAINED. This slide should address at least four criteria used to evaluate websites.
a. View Evaluating Internet Health Information: A Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine at: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/webeval/webeval_start.html
b. My assigned text (Hebda, T. L., Czar, P. (2012). Handbook of Informatics for Nurses & Healthcare Professionals, 5th Edition) and/or other references. The task is to explain how to determine the credibility of websites and teach it to the patient and/or caregiver described in the Scenario Slide. Concentrate on evaluation of the information, not how to conduct a search. Assume that the patient or caregiver has basic Internet searching skills, a computer in the home, and can enter words in the query box in a search engine, such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, and so forth. The idea is to teach your patients how to evaluate websites (suspect and credible) as they relate to a specific disease process or diagnosis.
c. The format of the criteria should be logical and easy to read, for example, a table, a checklist, or Q & A. Be creative! Language should be appropriate for the educational level of the audience, in other words, the patient and/or caregiver as described in the Scenario Slide.
III. Suspect Site Power Point Slide/Slide #3: This slide should give the name and description of a suspect website. The suspect website must be related to the disease or diagnosis identified in the scenario. However, the site does not meet the criteria for a credible site, for example, gives inaccurate information, and so forth. You must provide a working link to the site. Wikipedia is not acceptable! Explain why the site is suspect based on the criteria you outlined in the Criteria Slide.
IV. Credible Site Power Point Slide /Slide #4: This slide should give the name and description of a credible website that you would recommend to the patient and/or caregiver/family member. The website must be appropriate for the general public and address the disease process or diagnosis identified in the Scenario Slide. Avoid sites that are aimed at healthcare professionals. Explain why the site is credible based on criteria that you outlined in the Criteria Slide.
C. Make certain that the links for the suspect and credible sites are working and formatted correctly.
D. Punctuation and sentence structure are correct with no spelling or grammatical errors.
