I.Introduction: Introduce the topic that you have chosen to work on with one peer. Provide two paragraphs to introduce the topic using a minimum of 3â€“5 peer-reviewed references in the introduction.
II.Significance to Nursing: Explain why this particular CAM nursing therapy is important to nursing and create a patient scenario that illustrates how this CAM nursing therapy uniquely improves the patient in the scenario and why (for example, music therapy is useful in calming babies in the NICUâ€”how and why does this help). Provide 3â€“5 additional references in the significance to support your claims.
III.Nursing Theorist or Theoretical Underpinning for this CAM: Pick a nursing theorist or a religious basis, such as Hinduism or Buddhism, to relate to your chosen CAM. Explain how this may be a good fit or if the religious practices have historical underpinnings that help the nurse understand the CAM better. Tie this theorist or religion to your patient in the scenario and what was useful. Add one precaution in using this particular CAM that the nurse needs to know. Use two references here.
IV.Conclusion: Tie it all together: the scenario, theoretical or religious beliefs, how the CAM improved the life of the patient, and recommendations for future uses. This should be 2â€“3 paragraphs minimum.
