In the Online Nursing Orientation resource module you were introduced  to our graduate nursing certification success platform – the ‘3 Vs’ –  ‘Vision, Value, Victory’.  For those of you who also completed their  graduate nursing theory and research courses in our program additional  information was conveyed about our certification success framework.

Certification success thinking starts with your ‘vision’ to enter the  program. Through the ‘3 Vs’ we hope to focus students’ thoughts about  the ‘value’ that each course in the program brings to movement toward  certification success. And ‘victory’ comes with success is achieved by  success on planned certification exams.

Other ‘models’ that have the potential to impact your perspective on  the ‘value’ of your course work have been provided for those of you who  completed theory and research as a part of our program.  Another model  is examined in this course.

First utilized in the 1920s and often viewed as a model to view/guide  process improvement model is the PDSA model (Plan, Do, Study, Act).   The model parallels the tenants of action research in education and can  be used to guide development of treatment plans for patients (or self)  as well.

One of the aims of the ‘3 Vs’ is to convey how ‘models’ thinking  contributes to the development of your critical decision making  processes.  Here we will apply the PDSA model to what may be an everyday  circumstance.  Our goal, however, is that you gain an understanding of  the value of models and come to see them as a part of your everyday  decision making rather than as nebulous ideology.

In this unit you will be reading about complementary, alternative and integrative health care approaches.

Review information about those therapies on the NCCIH website accessed through the link below.

https://nccih.nih.gov/health/integrative-healthLinks to an external site.

Please develop a discussion that responds to each of the following  prompts.  Where appropriate your discussion needs to be supported by  scholarly resources.  Be sure to include in-text citations in the  context of the discussion and provide a full reference citation at the  end of the discussion.

Discussion Prompts

From your review of the NCCIH website you know that about 30% of  adults engage with health care modalities not typically considered part  of the conventional medical care model.

The likelihood exists that either you or someone you know has  utilized complementary, alternative or integrative health care  modalities.

Reflect on one of those non-conventional modalities that you have experience with.

Construct a discussion of that experience utilizing the PDSA model schemata.
