Intervention Presentation and Capstone Video Reflection

Hello all, I am [Your Name], a Registered Nurse on the path to completing my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Throughout recent months, I’ve dedicated myself to a capstone project focused on enhancing the management of heart failure patients through telehealth technology and wearable devices. Today, I am thrilled to walk you through the vital elements of this endeavor, sharing insights, learnings, and the growth I’ve experienced during my RN-to-BSN journey.

Contribution of Intervention to Patient Satisfaction and Quality of Life

Our intervention targeted the heart failure management of a patient named Taylor. Like many in his situation, Taylor grappled with effectively managing his condition, leading to frequent hospital readmissions. Our intervention aimed to ease this burden and enhance Taylor’s quality of life. Central to our approach was the integration of telehealth technology and wearable devices (Fekete et al., 2021). These tools enabled real-time monitoring of Taylor’s vital signs, empowering our healthcare team to make informed decisions and adapt his care plan as necessary.

Taylor and his family expressed satisfaction with the new approach. They felt reassured by the continuous monitoring and appreciated their involvement in Taylor’s care through access to device readings. Moreover, the reduced need for hospital visits significantly improved their quality of life. This positive feedback was corroborated by a noticeable decrease in Taylor’s hospital readmissions.

Use of Evidence-based and Peer-Reviewed Literature in the Capstone Project

Our intervention was grounded in evidence-based practice. Extensive review of peer-reviewed literature highlighted the effectiveness of telehealth and wearable devices in managing heart failure (Schorr et al., 2021). Clinical guidelines, particularly from reputable institutions like the American Heart Association, further supported our approach (Powell-Wiley et al., 2021). Additionally, insights from heart failure patients and caregivers emphasized the importance of home-based solutions in disease management.

Leveraging Healthcare Technology to Improve Outcomes and Communication

Telehealth and wearable devices played pivotal roles in our project. They facilitated seamless communication, personalized care delivery, and real-time monitoring of vital signs (Jensen et al., 2021). Looking ahead, the integration of artificial intelligence holds promise for even more proactive patient care.

Health Policy Influence on the Capstone Project

Adherence to health policies, including the Nursing Practice Act and HIPAA regulations, guided our project. Compliance with these regulations ensured patient safety and privacy (Hayes & Vance, 2020). Furthermore, our project highlighted the need for policies supporting broader telehealth adoption.

Project Outcomes and Expectations

Our intervention effectively reduced hospital readmissions and improved patient satisfaction. While initial resistance to technology posed challenges, ongoing support facilitated acceptance. The patient-centric nature of our intervention positions it as a potential best practice in chronic disease management.

Personal and Professional Growth

This project has been instrumental in my growth as a nurse. It bridged theory with practice, honed leadership skills, and reinforced ethical standards. I am committed to carrying these learnings forward, continuously striving to enhance patient care.

Conclusion

In conclusion, this capstone project symbolizes a significant milestone in my nursing journey. From conception to implementation, it has been a fulfilling experience. As I embark on the next phase of my career, I am fueled by the impact made on patients’ lives. Thank you.
