Assessment Summary

This assessment is designed to assess your knowledge regarding the nursing care of the patient requiring emergency care in an isolated practice context. This assessment has two parts. In the first part of the assessment you will review the case of a patient who requires emergency care in an isolated practice community context. Through analysis of the information provided in the case study you will answer a series of short answer questions in 1400 words (+/- 10%). The second part of this assessment requires you to undertake a period of critical reflection (300 words (+/- 10%)) on your learning experience versus your actual clinical experience whilst you were out on WIL.Please refer to the Assessment Instructions for details on how to complete this assessment.


The role of the registered nurse in isolated practice contexts is vast. They require knowledge of primary health care skills such as health promotion and vaccination, chronic disease management strategies and responding to emergency situations such as the trauma, poisoning or acute illnesses.

The nurse working in isolated practice context is often working under low supervision and in circumstances where human and physical resources are limited. The nurse needs to be able to make clinical decision quickly and effectively and work closely with and care for people they live and work. The questions in this case study were developed to assist you to apply your knowledge and skills to provide emergency or primary care in an unpredictable versus a predictable resource rich health environment. This includes being able to identify early signs of deterioration, communicate effectively with the inter professional and non-professional team. An important tool for the registered nurse in this context is to refine their ability to regularly reflect on their professional practice to ensure that they are delivering a quality evidence-based health care product to the regional, rural or remote Australian community.
