NursingPaper Details
Informatics has provided multiple avenues for APNs to improve their practice. Identify one electronic source that can help you prescribe medications. Name the source and explain why this will be helpful to you in the clinical setting. List the types of information this resource provides and its limitations. Is there a cost associated with its use? If so, does the cost seem reasonable? Discuss the limitations, if any, the program has. Discuss why this program seems useful for you.
The unit will be delivered as follows:
9 x 1 hour face­to­face lectures (weeks 1 to 10)
3 x 1 hour online pre­recorded lectures (weeks 11 to 13)
11 x 1 hour face­to­face tutorials (weeks 2 to 13)
The unit will also include a series of online activities. However, these are not compulsory
and non­assessable items.
Please refer to the ‘Weekly Reading and Tutorial Program’, available on vUWS, for a
week by week breakdown of readings, online activities and tutorial questions for this
unit.
Attendance
Students are expected to attend all face­to­face lectures and tutorials and to participate
actively in all class activities, including online activities. Failure to do so may seriously
undermine a student’s ability to complete the unit satisfactorily. Attendance records
may be consulted in the assessment of any requests for extensions or Special
Consideration. You should advise the Unit Coordinator or your tutor if you are unable to
attend a tutorial due to illness or misadventure.
This unit is worth 10 credit points, indicating that success in the unit requires at least 10
hours work per week. Two hours will be lecture/tutorial time, one hour will be online
activities and the remaining 7 hours should be devoted to reading and study,
assessment preparation, and revision. In this unit you will need to devote much of this
time to reading the set reading materials.

Task Description
Youth Action are concerned that punitive (i.e. punishment focused) responses to governing young
people in NSW are having a ‘net­widening’ effect that is seeing more and more young people come in
contact with the criminal justice system. They would like to draw attention to the special needs of
young people as ‘citizens in progress’. Your task is to produce an A4 size poster accompanied by a 500
(+/­ 10%) word explanation that addresses ONE of the themes outlined below. Your target audience
includes: the general public, retailers, police and private security.
Young people’s place in public space
Under this theme you may choose to focus on the contentious nature of ‘public’ space. The tensions
between commercial interests and youth (e.g. excluding young people from public spaces through
regulation of youth practices, such as banning skating, criminalising graffiti, removing youth who are
‘hanging out’ from shopping centres etc.).
Improving youth/police relations or youth/private security relations
Under this theme you may choose to focus on the nature of the relationship between police/private
security and marginal youth groups such as; the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender,
intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) youth, homeless youth, and ethnic minority youth.
Territorial stigmatisation and its effects on young people
Under this theme you may choose to focus on the effects of territorial stigmatisation on youth
identity and how crime and violence may turn into, problematic, “magical solutions” or responses to
experiences of humiliation and exclusion (e.g. understanding levels of youth­on­youth violence in
marginalised communities, understanding the processes of stigmatisation that lead to the
marginalisation of youth living in disadvantaged communities).
A list of recommended readings for this task will be made available in the ‘Assessments’ folder on the
vUWS site for the unit.
Other key points about your final submission
• Use a minimum of two scholarly sources (e.g. Journal articles, book chapters and respected
government websites).
• You must acknowledge the images and ideas of others, reference direct quotes properly using
the Harvard referencing system and include a reference list at the end (not included in the
word count).
• Viewpoints need to be substantiated using relevant literature, conceptual knowledge, and
convincing argumentation.
• You can use some text on your poster but this should be very limited (e.g. slogan or brief
quote).
• The 500 (+/­ 10%) word component of the task must be word­processed, doubled spaced and
use 12pt font.
• You must also retain an electronic or hard copy of your submission as dictated by University
