2 Running head: Learning Plan RYERSON UNIVERSITY DAPHNE COCKWELL SCHOOL OF NURSING Learning Plan (C)NCL 700 Student Name: Jane Doe, RN Date: September 29, 2017 Setting: King Edward Hospital, Oncology Clinic Preceptor/Mentor’s Name: Mary Sunshine, RN, BScN, CONC Work Study X Clinical Placement Learning Goal: My overarching goal is to revise the patient education program in the Oncology Clinic by creating and delivering a patient education assessment tool by November 17, 2017. The assessment tool will be informed by Lazarus’ Theory of Coping. The results of the assessment tool will be used by members of the healthcare team to support patients in self-management of their cancer diagnosis. Theoretical Perspective: The theoretical perspective I will be using to assist me in my study is Lazarus’ Theory of Coping. This theory addresses how individuals cope with stressors when they are encountered. I care for patients who are newly diagnosed with cancer, or are actively treating their cancer. Lazarus discusses that humans appraise and reappraise stressors they encounter, and there are many factors that influence the results of the appraisal, which influence how they cope with a difficult situation. Stressors can be regarded as irrelevant, positive, or stress-producing. Stress producing stressors can be viewed as challenging or threatening. Factors that can influence an appraisal of a situation can be categorized as personal or situational. The form that coping with a situation takes can be driven by emotions, or be more problem-focused (Baldwin, 2005). Newly diagnosed cancer patients and patients undergoing treatment must cope with a new or acute health crisis. The stressors that they will have to face will not be in the presence of health care providers, but outside of the hospital, at work and at home. Having the structure that Lazarus’ theory provides, can assist understanding of the health care team in what patients are going through, and see how they are coping, and what factors are influencing that coping. Lazarus’ theory can also help structure content of education and its delivery to the patient. t Used with Permission. Modified CNCL 700 Student LP Winter 2017

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
