Assessing the health of a community or population requires a different skill set than assessing individual patients. Individual patients are assessed using direct observation during the process of identifying their condition, needs, abilities, and preferences. The health of populations is assessed using data analytics that aggregate findings based on a predefined geographic area or a common characteristic. For example, a population can include the people in an entire county, state, or nation. Additionally, a population can include the people in a hospital unit or community or any other group of individuals who have shared characteristics (e.g., older women or those who attend a common event at the same place and time). A disease investigator or advanced practice nurse defines the population of interest, which may change as the investigation progresses. Defining the population is extremely important as it is essential to describe the outbreak in terms of person, place, and time (PPT).

For this task, you will create a professional multimedia presentation. This presentation will be based on your analysis of an investigation conducted in the outbreak scenario. See the “Crab Apple Valley Communicable Outbreak Simulation” in the Web Link section. It is recommended that you complete your review of this outbreak before you begin your presentation since all the information in your presentation will come from this case scenario.

You will present the methods, processes, and results of your investigation of the outbreak that are essential to controlling the spread of this disease and preventing future outbreaks. Additionally, you will present information on the guiding principles that form the basis for investigating and managing infectious disease outbreaks.



Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 50% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. The similarity report that is provided when you submit your task can be used as a guide. 

You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course. 

Tasks may not be submitted as cloud links, such as links to Google Docs, Google Slides, OneDrive, etc., unless specified in the task requirements. All other submissions must be file types that are uploaded and submitted as attachments (e.g., .pdf, .ppt, .pptx).

Telemedicine Advancement in Emergency Rooms


Rural emergency departments are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to treating patients with acute illnesses. The absence of experts inside the office is a downside and couldpossibly have deadly results for our patients. Telemedicine is the freshest innovation accessible, and keeping in mind that costly, it gives significant advantages to emergency room patients and staff.Telemedicine will permit the emergency room to go with faster choices in regards to a patient’s demeanor orneed for quick development. In no less than a half year, The emergency room will execute telemedicine forcardiology patients requiring administrations. The following a half year will start the execution oftelemedicine for nervous system science and mental claims to fame. Telemedicine expands admittance todoctors and experts guaranteeing that patients get the perfect consideration at the ideal time and in theperfect spot (Truth Sheet: Telehealth, 2019). Telemedicine is connected to a 30-35% decrease in mortality (Di Lenarda et al., 2017).

A1. Role of innovative nurse leader

Nurse educators will be officially liable for preparing staff on the machine and training them on legitimate advances when a discussion is requested. Instructors will be accessible for different kinds of feedback. Laying out a telemedicine champion in the trauma center could be helpful when teachers are not free. Preparing staff is perhaps the greatest obstacle and normally requires more than one meeting (Hamm et al., 2020). Their casual job is counsel with different offices with this sort of hardware to get thoughts on the most proficient method to better our cycle.

Innovation is viewed as another device, thought, or strategy for playing out an ongoing interaction. It is otherwise called developing something new or further developing something currently in present. Nurse innovators act as agents of change. They drive new procedures and use innovation to work on understanding considerations. Leaders likewise have areas of strength for construction with different experts in medical care. They can utilize an instrument we now have and track down an alternate reason for it. They can conceptualize groundbreaking plans to work on by and large persistent consideration and security (Williams et al., 2016). We are the foundation of medical care. Medical care is steadily evolving. New ideas are expected to continually adjust to changes. Nurse innovators make answers for existing cycles, better approaches to utilize current

Prelude: Epidemiology of an Outbreak

Did you ever wonder if the nursing process was more versatile than only applying it to clinical practice and academic discussions? Have you ever been asked to perform a clinical task or procedure without being informed first why it was necessary? Did you understand the “why” behind all the actions taken to address outbreaks in recent years? Have you considered the differences in the implications and the extent of endemic, epidemic, or pandemic outbreaks?

This aspect of your course will increase your understanding of the how, what, where, why, and when of outbreaks and provide you with an opportunity to translate theory into practice in your new professional role. Let the exploration of an outbreak investigation begin!

What you need to know before you start the outbreak scenario.

This scenario was developed especially for you!

Follow the instructions on each slide.

Listen to and read the text at the bottom of the screen for the slides with audio.


Only select the “Transcript” button if you would like to view the full audio text for several slides. Once selected, you will be able to turn it off by clicking the button labeled “Close.”

Click on the button labeled “Pause” to pause any of the videos and the “Play” symbol to restart.


You will see a button labeled “Prev” and a button labeled “Next.” Use these buttons to advance or go back.


You will also see a button labeled “Prev” and a button labeled “Submit” when you are on a slide that requires you to perform an action or actions. Click on the “Submit” button when you have completed the action.

To drag and drop an item on a slide, use your left mouse button and click on the selected item, hold the mouse button down, and move the selected item to the new location by moving your mouse. Then release the mouse button.

For the “Case Definition” slide, you will need to drag each word to the correct definition space. If the word turns green, it is correct. If it turns red, either it is not part of the definition, or it may not be in the correct space in the definition. Drag the incorrect words to the trash can. You can only move forward if you have moved all the words to their correct location.


The “Home” button is the one with the symbol of a house on it. This button will take you back to the “Home” page to review a specific section of the scenario if you want.

Take notes as you navigate the scenario. When you have completed the scenario, you may select the
Icon  Description automatically generated
“Home” button to return to and review any of the sections of the course. If you select one of the sections to review, you will progress through the section again and must select the “Home” button again to navigate to another section without completing the slide requirements again.

Enjoy the learning experience! Some of the words in an outbreak investigation may be foreign to you, but the approach is significantly aligned with the nursing process.
