MSU College of Nursing NUR 360 Fall 2005 This module will present the topic of brain trauma and the nursing and collaborative management of these patients. Remember that the format for this week is a little bit different. We will not be spending much time in class on lecture, so most of the information you need will come from your readings and the other on- line activities. In class you will be working with your team on a case study that hopefully will help you apply what you have learned to a "real world" situation. Objectives: 1. Differentiate among patients with head injuries according to mechanism of injury, clinical signs and symptoms, diagnostic testing and treatment options. 2. Describe the nursing and collaborative management of head-injured patients. 3. Design a plan of care, using the nursing process, for a patient with traumatic brain injury.
