Summative Assessment task details and instructions
Personalised care as identified in the NHS Long Term Plan (2019) promotes the nurse to consider the ‘person’ as opposed to the ‘patient’ (NHS England, 2019; Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC], 2018). In doing so, you will need to use appropriate communication skills and interpersonal skills to support and enable people to make informed choices within their episodes of care. This assessment will centre around a person’s story of an episode of care. You will need to choose one story/experience and address the assessment criteria set out under ‘Assessment Criteria’.
Here are some useful links containing stories you may want to consider.
NHS Patient Stories
Institute for healthcare improvement – Patient stories
Health talk – Real People, Real life experiences
Patient Voices – Insight through first-person stories…
To FULLY meet the assessment criteria, you need to:
Briefly summarise the persons episode of care and describe the importance of partnership working between the nurse and person in relation to personalised care and support planning.
This links to Learning Outcome (IOL) 2. See page 3
Explain how a nurse can use communication and interpersonal skills within this person’s episode of care, in identifying what matters to the person.

Good Academic Conduct and Academic Misconduct
Students are expected to learn and demonstrate skills associated with good academic conduct (academic integrity). Good academic conduct includes the use of clear and correct referencing of source materials. Here is a link to where you can find out more about the skills which students require.
Academic Misconduct is an action which may give you an unfair advantage in your academic work. This includes plagiarism, asking someone else to write your assessment for you or taking notes into an exam. The University takes all forms of academic misconduct seriously. You can find out how to avoid academic misconduct here
The new Academic Misconduct Procedure (AMP) for 2019/2020 is available here
Your programme is also covered by Fitness to Practise (FtP) policy and procedure.
Where there is a case of academic misconduct it will not be referred to FtP until the AMP case has been concluded, it will then be for the Dean’s nominee under FtP Procedure to make the formal decision on whether there are FtP aspects to consider relating to that outcome.
