Task: Students are required to develop a narrated PowerPoint on medication
adherence for patients with multiple chronic diseases. It is expected that appropriate
evidence-based literature will be used to support the presentation. Students may take
inspiration from the patient interviewed in assignment task one, or from experiences
from on clinical placement to provide context and examples to answer the following
questions:
1. What are consequences of medication non adherence for patients with multiple
chronic diseases?
2. What are the patient factors likely to affect medication adherence?
3. Outline THREE suitable strategies to overcome patient-initiated barriers to improve
medication adherence for patients with multiple chronic diseases.
4. How would the Registered Nurse evaluate the efficacy of these techniques?

Assessment Criteria Appendix B of the NRSG372 unit outline
Learning Outcomes
LO3 use advanced pathophysiological knowledge to implement the Levett-Jones’
Clinical Reasoning Cycle across a range of settings, to plan safe, evidence-based,
culturally sensitive, person-centred care; (GA3, GA4, GA5, GA8, GA9)
LO4 critically apply quality use of medicines, non-pharmacological therapeutic
interventions, complementary therapies, goal setting and eHealth strategies in
the chronic illness and disability context; (GA1, GA3, GA4, GA5, GA7, GA8)
LO5 apply legal and ethical principles related to the chronic illness and disability
context; (GA3)
Submission
Via the assessment dropbox in the NRSG372 LEO site on your campus tile. Please
ensure you submit to the dropbox assigned to your stream.
Purpose
This assessment task will allow students to demonstrate an understanding of the
impact of medication adherence issues for patient with chronic illness and or
disability. Students will have the opportunity to apply specific frameworks to ensure
critical thinking, clinical reasoning and the principles of caring for people with a chronic
illness or disability are applied. Polypharmacy is the use of several medicines
concurrently (Page, Falster, Litchfield, Pearson & Etherton-Beer, 2019) and is often
observed in patients with one or more chronic diseases. Lam and Fresco (2015)
indicate patients with chronic disease correctly take only 50% of medications
prescribed. Health care professionals, especially nurses, have a significant role in
improving patient medication adherence.

Task – stream A
Task: Students are required to develop a narrated PowerPoint on medication
adherence for patients with multiple chronic diseases. It is expected that appropriate
evidence-based literature will be used to support the presentation. Students may take
inspiration from the patient interviewed in assignment task one, or from experiences
from on clinical placement to provide context and examples to answer the following
questions:
1. What are consequences of medication non adherence for patients with multiple
chronic diseases?
2. What are the patient factors likely to affect medication adherence?
3. Outline THREE suitable strategies to overcome patient-initiated barriers to improve
medication adherence for patients with multiple chronic diseases.
4. How would the Registered Nurse evaluate the efficacy of these techniques?
Task – stream B
Task: Students are required to develop a narrated PowerPoint on medication
adherence for patients with multiple chronic diseases. It is expected that appropriate
evidence-based literature will be used to support the presentation. Students may take
inspiration from the patient interviewed in assignment task one, or from experiences
from on clinical placement to provide context and examples to answer the following
questions:
1. What are consequences of medication non adherence in patients with multiple
chronic diseases?
2. What are the health care provider factors likely to affect medication adherence?
3. Outline THREE suitable strategies to overcome health care provider initiated
barriers to improve medication adherence for patients with multiple chronic
diseases.
4. How would the Registered Nurse evaluate the efficacy of these techniques?
Instructions for students
1. Instructions on how to record a slide show with narration and slide timings in PowerPoint
are available here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/record-a-slide-show-withnarration-and-slide-timings-0b9502c6-5f6c-40ae-b1e7-e47d8741161c
2. Oral presentations consisting of only reading the content of the PowerPoint will receive very
few marks. The purpose of the PowerPoint slide is to give a dot-point overview of concepts
(with APA references), with your oral recording further expanding on these points.
3. Academic references must be used to support the discussion. Avoid using consumer
resources. The use of consumer resources significantly impacts on the quality of support for
the discussion, and significantly reduces the ability to score marks for content sections
requiring literature support.
