3,000 WORD ESSAY
Using a case study approach, identify and critically discuss 3 distinct areas of care delivered to a critical care patient of your choice. Critically analyse one area of care/management that could have been improved and make suggestions as to how this improvement could be facilitated within your clinical area.
Guidance:
• Identify a critically ill patient you have cared for.
• INTRODUCTION – The introduction should succinctly describe the case study, whilst maintaining confidentiality (approximately 250 words maximum).
• PART 1 – Utilising relevant literature, identify and critically discuss 3 distinct areas of the patient’s care from the following list ( use approximately 500 words for each section) :
• Respiratory/ventilation
• Cardiovascular
• Neurological/delerium
• Renal
• Gastrointestinal/nutrition
• Infection/immunology
• Liver/pancreatic dysfunction/disease
• PART 2 – Select one area of care identified in part 1 that could have been improved and critically analyse/discuss this using relevant literature (approximately 1250 words (to a maxiumum of 3300 words for the whole essay)).
• make suggestions as to how this improvement could be facilitated within your clinical area, using relevant literature to support your suggestions/recommendations.

The layout should be as follows:
• All work should be identified by your student number only. This should be in the left hand heading on all pages of your work.
• The pages should be numbered with Arabic numerals (ie. 1, 2, 3, ..).
• All referencing in text, and in your referencing list, must use the UWE Harvard Style (see http://www1.uwe.ac.uk/students/studysupport/studyskills/referencing/uweharvard.aspx for advice).
• Any appendices should follow the ‘Reference List’. Each should be labelled with a consecutive letter, e.g. Appendix A, Appendix B, etc. and be titled.
• Your work should be typed in 1.5 line spacing and Arial 12 font.

The word limit is 3,000 words with a 10% allowance. This includes in-text references.
The total number of words used should be identified on the final page of the essay. This excludes the references in the list, and appendices.
If you exceed the total word count allowed (ie. 3,300) the marker will stop reading once the word limit has been reached and nothing further will be taken into account in the allocation of marks. The word count needs to be clearly and correctly stated on the final page of the essay. Incorrectly understating the word count constitutes an assessment offence and may result in further action.
