Leadership and collaborative practice in nursing
The platform for your summative assignment is the identification of a practice based activity (formative submission) that you observed or where directly involved in, this should be no more than 400 words and will be used as an appendix for your summative assignment. This is a case study and NOT reflective assignment so the activity you use will be a means of examining theory and its application to practice, both positively or negatively.
The assignment should include an outline of the circumstances surrounding the need for collaborative working. The identification of those agencies involved in the situation, with a brief summary of the outcome.
The 3000 words will be used to;
1- Demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the leadership and management skills and identify the key areas for debate on your case study and discussion; leadership, management and collaborative activities.
2- Critically evaluate the benefits and challenges identified in your case study, strategies identified was the action appropriate in all areas, and provide academic rationale for your reasoning.
3- Critically evaluate the role of the nurse in leadership and problem solving when engaging with multi professional teams, carers, families. Use literature AND RESEARCH to demonstrate your critical ability and why the theory supports the decisions either positively or negatively.
4- Critically appraise the contribution of different approaches that inform inter-professional and multi-agency working. Overall you should amalgamate leadership and collaboration to inform theoretical perspectives and demonstrate understanding; there are contributors within the literature who argue that there has to be distinction between theory and its relationship to utility within the context of collaboration or leadership.
