Choose 1 (one) of the following essay topics:
1. SCENARIO 1: PAEDIATRIC FOCUS
Chloe is 6 years old and has been admitted to the ward with abdominal pain for
further investigation.
She has a 3 day history of worsening abdominal pain and is accompanied by her
mother Trudy. She is mildly febrile with a temperature of 37.6 and HR of 108 on
arrival to the ward. Her respirations are normal for age and she exhibits no
respiratory distress.
There were three attempts to insert an IV cannula in the emergency department
because Chloe got so distressed and became extremely uncooperative, so the
registrar is coming to insert it on the ward. Blood tests will be taken at the same time.
You have just taken over the care of Chloe after a handover from the emergency
department nurse. She is laying in her bed, curled up, crying softly and her mother is
comforting her. Her mother asks you to give her some pain relief.
Assessment Task
In essay format, discuss the nurse’s role in assessing the child’s pain, analgesia
administration and pain management and atraumatic care principles for minor
procedures. Tailor your discussion to consider the developmental age of the child
(Chloe) and the contextual issues you identify in the case.  In your response, include

NSB600 Introduction to Nursing Children and Childbearing families

NSB600 – Assessment Task 2 Page 4 of 8
specific evidence based nursing approaches related to pain management for both
acute and procedural pain.  Support your discussion points by integrating
contemporary and relevant research literature.
Criteria for Assessment
•  Nursing approaches to facilitate effective and developmentally appropriate pain
assessment are correctly articulated and discussed.
•  Nursing approaches to support acute and procedural pain management in
consultation with parents/carers are correctly articulated and discussed.
•  The role of the nurse is correctly articulated and discussed throughout the essay
•  Relevant research literature is integrated to provide support
•  Written expression, presentation and referencing are consistent with academic
standards and presented in QUT APA referencing style
2. SCENARIO 2 – CHILDBEARING FOCUS
Sara is a healthy woman aged 33 years who is expecting her first baby and is currently
at 40 weeks plus 5 days gestation.  Sara has had antenatal care throughout her
pregnancy at the local hospital with a team of medical and midwifery staff and has had
an uneventful pregnancy.  Sara has attended child birth classes with her partner at the
local community health centre and plans to breast feed her infant.  Sara has
experienced increasingly regular painful contractions over the last four hours, has had
a bloody show and has just arrived at the local hospital as she thinks she is in early
labour and expects she will have her baby in the next 24 hours.  She is accompanied
by her partner, Ben, and her mum, Leanne, who have both been preparing to support
Sara throughout her labour.
Assessment Task:
Historically women have long been attended in labour by other women and this had
occurred across cultures and timeframes.  All women should have support available
from people of their choice during labour and delivery. In essay format, discuss Sara’s
support needs during labour and delivery, and specific support measures that may be
implemented to meet her needs.  Include in your response support needs that may be
met by her partner and Sara’s mother as well as those provided by health workers such
as midwifes and medical staff.  As part of your discussion highlight the positive impact
of support measures discussed.  Back your discussion points by integrating
contemporary and relevant research literature.
Further tips
 In the context of this assessment, support is a broad term that encompasses
physical, psychological and social dimensions.  Emotional support from a
partner, information provision and comfort measures are all examples of
support measures that may meet the unique needs of a woman during labour
and delivery.
 It is assumed that standard labour and birth care that meets the physical
safety needs of the mother and foetus/infant is provided in the hospital
situation given in the scenario and you do not need to address these areas as
part of your essay.
 In international literature you may find different terms used to indicate the
‘loved ones’ that accompany a woman during birth or health staff who assist
birthing women.  Terms such as birth partner, doula or birth attendant may be
used to indicate the lay people supporting the labouring mother as well as the
more familiar term of midwife or nurse. You may use any of these terms in
your essay.
 To keep within the word limit it is suggested that you limit the scope of your
discussion to the labour, delivery and immediate postpartum phase.
