This means you need to discuss the issue you have chosen either safety or legal issue in depth. Exploring the issue in depth also refers to the assessment itself which is asking students to critically analyse the issue you are discussing. This simply refers to:
- Discussing the issue to demonstrate why you think the problem identified is an issue, how it impacts on patients and scope of practice; and the responsibilities you will need to observe or undertake in order to address the issue in view of your rights and responsibilities as nurse.
- Discuss points, provide rationale and support points with literature/references.
- Within your rights and responsibilities refers to linking your understanding and application of NMBA’s standards to practice and the issue you are discussing.
