Week 5 discussion Discussion Prompt 1 Discuss how to apply two of the identified EBP into the Requirements Phase II of your identified clinical IT problem. Create and share high-level project goals within the system life cycle using the SMART technique to develop them. Discussion Prompt 2 Discuss how dashboards contribute to the success of good project management and how you will incorporate it into your current project. Note if it creates efficiency or redundancy in your actions and its overall effect on the project progress.The term denotes the processes via which clinical decisions are made in order to improve patient health. The processes include diagnosis (specification of disease by linking symptoms with causes of disease), therapy planning (actions targeted to alleviate the causes of disease), monitoring (actions that are targeted to steer patient status on a healthy course) and prevention (actions that are targeted to support maintenance of healthy status).

We shall now look at each of these components in more detail:

a) Identification data: This is the child’s personal information. It includes the child’s names, age, sex, tribe, religion, next of kin (parents) and address (residential), and the date of seeing the child in the health unit. After all these have been recorded the child should then be weighed and the weight recorded also.

b) Presenting complaint: The presenting complaint is the problem(s) that has caused the caretaker to bring the child for medical help. For instance, it may be:

fever (the child feels hot)
It is important to establish the duration of each complaint. For example, if the child has a cough, ask “How long has the child been coughing?” If there is more than one complaint, ask which complaint came first, which was next and finally, which came last. You should then present these complaints in order beginning with the one that came first.

When writing down the patient’s history, always use the caretaker’s words. For instance, if the mother says that the child feels hot, then write: “the child feels hot.” Avoid describing it as a high temperature.

c) History of the presenting complaint: The history of the presenting complaint is additional information about the presenting complaint. You must ask more questions about the symptoms that the mother has mentioned. This means asking questions like:

“When did the illness begin?”
“How did it start?”
“Was it sudden or was the onset slow?”
Find out when each symptom began and whether it seems to be getting better or worse. Ask about associated symptoms. For example, a cough may present with difficulty in breathing, diarrhoea may present with blood in stool or with vomiting. Fever may be constant or on and off. Ask and then listen until the mother has finished talking. Avoid interrupting her as much as possible to be sure you have all the information she can offer. You can then ask leading questions to help her remember what she might have forgotten. She may answer in the positive or negative.
