Educating patients with Asthma
The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate the skills of the professional nurse as an educator. You are to prepare a patient scenario based on the required assigned topic. You will choose an already developed and reliable mHealth app to use in the education of your patient.
Based on your accepted Milestone 1 assignment, use the information to identify teaching areas to improve patient outcomes and ways to evaluate the success of the patient’s use of the mHealth app. You will include both the citations and references in APA format.
You will develop the Patient Education Technology Guide using Microsoft PowerPoint OR a Poster in Microsoft Office format. You must use either a PowerPoint presentation or the Poster template provided, depending on which option you choose. Only complete one assignment: PowerPoint or Poster.
