1. Describe in detail three state-of-art student semi or fully automated registration technologies, compare their advantages and disadvantages in-between as well as with existing university registration procedure;

The objectives of the project are to:
1. Describe in detail three state-of-art student semi or fully automated registration technologies, compare their advantages and disadvantages in-between as well as with existing university registration procedure;

2. Carry out cost-effective analysis and propose how much it will cost to implement top-two preferred semi or fully automated registration technologies at the School of Engineering & Science at Medway (based on type of the selected technologies, total number of teaching rooms, support staff and maintenance costs should considered).

This is an individual research project and you will not have an academic support staff to guide you through the expected report progress.

Please take this work very seriously and consult ‘Report structure & assessment’ section to familiarise with report requirements.

SCENARIO ONE.

 

Option 1: Epilepsy

 

Jessica Williamson is a 28 year old woman with a past history of epilepsy. Two weeks ago Jessica was out socially, drinking alcohol at a dance club. Jessica experienced a seizure whilst on the dance floor. Upon arrival at the local Emergency Department, paramedic staff reported that she had experienced a full tonic-clonic seizure that lasted for three minutes, during which she lost consciousness. Jessica was assessed and admitted. During her hospitalisation, Jessica was stabilised and discharged from hospital 1 week after the episode. Her discharge medications included an anticonvulsant.

 

On discharge Jessica was asked to attend her GP for follow-up.

 

Medical History

 

Jessica was diagnosed with epilepsy in late adolescence. Initially the seizures were very difficult to control using anticonvulsants but her condition stabilised 5 years ago. Three months ago she weaned herself off her anticonvulsants as she wanted to fall pregnant. During her hospitalization she was recommenced on her anticonvulsant.

 

Four years ago Jessica was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Jessica was taught to control her blood glucose levels using diet and oral hypoglycaemics, this is now decreasingly effective.

 

Her most recent observations include:

 

  • BP: 150/90

 

  • P: 115 regular

 

  • Height: 158 cms

 

  • Weight: 122 kgs

 

  • BGL 12.9

 

Her current medications are:

 

  • Epilim 1 gm BD

 

  • Metformin 850mg BD

 

Social History

 

Jessica lives in a two-storey house with her current partner of six years, Martin. Jessica’s parents live overseas where her mother has been posted for work. Jessica is an only child. She works as a real estate agent selling homes and covers a large geographic area involving long and irregular work hours. This can involve her driving long distances and for long periods of time. Jessica enjoys her work and the challenges of being independent at work and at home. Despite being advised by her GP that she must not drive after suffering this recent seizure, Jessica continues to do so.

 

Current Issue

 

Following the follow-up appointment with the GP, the GP was concerned about Jessica’s seemingly poor acceptance of her medical diagnoses and her compliance with the treatment regime for both her diabetes and epilepsy. Jessica indicated she did not need any more prescriptions for her anticonvulsants at the moment.

 

Jessica is not particularly careful about monitoring her blood sugar levels. She says she often forgets, and tends to check when she “feels fuzzy”.

As this is your first visit to Jessica in her home, justify and discuss the immediate plan of care for her.

 

Assessment Focus

 

You are the Registered Nurse from the Community Nursing Service. You will be undertaking an initial visit to Jessica’s home.

Prioritise and provide a rationale for the activities you will undertake as part of this initial visit and identify two (2) priorities for your follow-up visit.
