the clinical reasoning cycle.
2. List the objective and subjective data that you have collected from
reviewing the patient scenario information provided.

clinical reasoning cycle.
3. Analyse and interpret your patient’s vital signs data and explain

· Identify one strength (something you did well) during the skills
assessment and briefly explain why this promotes a positive
· Identify one aspect of your practice for improvement
(something you did not do so well or did not do at all during the
skills assessment). Briefly explain what you should do differently
next time and why this is important for promoting a positive
patient outcome. Outline at least one course of action (what
further learning do you need to do) for improving this aspect of
Sections 1, 2 & 3 (consider the patient situation, collect cues and
information, and process the information) should be approximately
700 words. Section 4 (critical reflection on the vital signs skills
assessment) should be approximately 300 words.
You will need to use relevant scholarly sources of information
(textbooks, journal articles, evidence-based practice guidelines or
clinical care standards) to support your analysis of your patient’s
health information and critical reflection. The Harvard referencing
style should be used for citation of information sources throughout
the text (in-text referencing) and a reference list at the end of the
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
