Management of Acute Post Operative Pain
Provide a 8 pages analysis while answering the following question: Management of Acute Post Operative Pain in a Clinical setting, by third year nursing students. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. These reflections and observations are later assimilated and put into abstract concepts thus producing new implications for action which can be actively tested and in turn creating new experiences. In a clinical setting, instructors or teachers are expected to apply the four stage learning cycle which is a theory by Kolb. The four categories as stipulated by Kolb are concept experimentation (CE), reflective observation (RO), abstract conceptualization (AC) and lastly active experimentation (AE). Since the learning session is in sort of a discussion in a classroom, the teacher will be required to theoretically elaborate on the four stages or processes towards achieving knowledge (Kolb 2001). For instance the teacher would display an image showing how a doctor attends to a patient and the various processes that are carried out during the treatment procedure. If the learning session was practical, the students would be required to reflectively and keenly observe what the doctor is doing. This would in turn make them absorb any useful information from the experience and thus they would be in apposition to conceptualize the treatment procedure that they witnessed.
