You have already learned about evidence-based practice and quality improvement initiatives in previous courses. You will use this information to guide your assessments, while also implementing new concepts introduced in this course. For this assessment, you will develop a concept map and provide supporting evidence and explanations. You may use the case studies presented in the Vila Health: Concept Maps as Diagnostic Tools media, a case study from the literature or your practice that is relevant to the list of conditions below, or another relevant case study you have developed. This case study will provide you with the context for creating your concept map. You may also use the practice context from the case study or extrapolate the case study information and data into your own practice setting. Think carefully when you are selecting the case study for this assessment, as you may choose to build upon it for the second assessment as well.
Some example conditions, diseases and disorders that are relevant to metabolic balance and glucose regulation considerations are:
- Diabetes (type 2).
- Metabolic syndrome.
- Polycycstic ovary syndrome.
Develop a concept map and a short narrative that supports and further explains how the concept map is constructed. You may choose to use the Concept Map Template (in the Resources) as a starting point for your concept map, but are not required to do so. The bullet points below correspond to the grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your evidence-based plan addresses all of them. You may also want to read the Concept Map scoring guide and the Guiding Questions: Concept Map document to better understand how each grading criterion will be assessed.
Part 1: Concept Map
- Develop an evidence-based concept map that illustrates a plan for achieving high-quality outcomes for a condition that has impaired glucose or metabolic imbalance as related aspects.
Part 2: Additional Evidence (Narrative)
- Justify the value and relevance of the evidence you used as the basis for your concept map.
- Analyze how interprofessional strategies applied to the concept map can lead to achievement of desired outcomes.
- Construct concept map and linkage to additional evidence in a way that facilitates understanding of key information and links.
- Integrate relevant sources to support assertions, correctly formatting citations and references using current APA style.
Example Assessment: You may use the following to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like:
- Length of submission: Your concept map should be on a single page, if at all possible. You can submit the concept map as a separate file, if you need to. Your additional evidence narrative should be 2–3 double-spaced, typed pages. Your narrative should be succinct yet substantive.
- Number of references: Cite a minimum of 3–5 sources of scholarly or professional evidence that supports your concept map, decisions made regarding care, and interprofessional strategies. Resources should be no more than five years old.
- APA formatting:
- For the concept map portion of this assessment: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style. Please include references both in-text and in the reference page that follows your narrative.
- For the narrative portion of this assessment: use the APA Paper Template linked in the Resources. An APA Template Tutorial is also provided to help you in writing and formatting your analysis. You do not need to include an abstract for this assessment.
The resources provided here are optional. You may use other resources of your choice to prepare for this assessment; however, you will need to ensure that they are appropriate, credible, and valid. The MSN-FP6021 – Biopsychosocial Concepts for Advanced Nursing Practice I Library Guide can help direct your research, and the Supplemental Resources and Research Resources, both linked from the left navigation menu in your courseroom, provide additional resources to help support you.

The following additional resources are for your further exploration of specific conditions, diseases, or disorders. These resources will help you with your initial research for the Concept Map assessment. They may also provide ideas and information for creating your own case study around a specific condition, disease, or disorder if you choose to do so for the first assessment.You do not have to read all of these resources—nor should you. Review them as needed to complete your assessments.
