• Title: Evaluate how a nursing intervention may or may not promote partnership working with a service user or care with Medication management
This is a 1500 word essay concerning the critical evaluation of partnership working within your area of practice. This assignment is intended to demonstrate your ability to understand and promote partnership working with service users or carer. This is a theoretical essay (not a case study) so the expectation is that you explore contemporary literature and policy as an evidence base for your discussion.
Guidance for your essay
Your essay should focus on a specific intervention with a service user or carer:
This is not a reflection on something you have done with a service user or carer; it is purely a theoretical essay which requires you to explore contemporary literature.
You need to provide a brief rationale for your topic choice and include as an appendix, it is not counted in your word count.
Your evaluation should include reference to partnership working, and the potential barriers or difficulties of this in relation to your intervention.
You should not duplicate work done in previous modules i.e. choose a different focus to analyse.
O The essay is a critical evaluation of a nursing intervention with a specific focus of how working in partnership with SU/C can be achieved.

O Recognise that in this instance partnership working relates to the sharing of information between SU/C and professional with the aim of each party having a clear understanding of their role and agreeing a way forward. It is not about partnership working between health professionals.

O Discussion on partnership – definitions and importance of health professionals and SU/C working in partnership to plan and make decisions. This discussion should look at policy, benefits, values (autonomy, choice, control), and interventions that support partnership working.
O Whilst we want you to consider the quality of the literature/research remember this not a research essay. You need to be concise.
O An exploration of the intervention you have chosen, with particular reference to partnership working.
