Assignment 1: Grand Rounds Assignment

    • Your presentation must include:
      • Three learning objectives that must be clearly written and presented
      • A complete SOAP on the approved template
      • An extended SOAP note
      • At least five test questions (such as multiple choice and/or matching) designed to asses mastery of the learning objectives
      • A minimum of five scholarly resources

Additional Guidelines

For the presenters:

Your goal is to present your case as a teaching presentation and lead a discussion throughout the week.

Here are some tips for facilitating the discussion:

  • To prepare for your presentation, rehearse the key points and findings of your research and think about points you can make to initiate the discussion and keep it going.
  • Develop questions you can ask to initiate the discussion and keep it going.
  • As you approach the end of the discussion period, ask participants to:
    • Summarize the discussion.
    • Draw conclusions from the collective group discussion.

Keep the presentation interesting, professional, and focused on the topic. APA format is expected, and references should be cited.

For the participants:

Those not assigned to present this week should participate in all Grand Round Discussions. Here are some guidelines for participation:

  • Prepare for the discussion by reading the presenters’ submission.
  • Keep your participation at the level of critical thinking—analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating. Make connections between what you are learning in this course and what you already know.
  • Make comparisons and challenge points of view. Interact with both presenters and other students.
  • Add to the experience using what you might have read about the topic or experienced personally.
  • Be prepared to substantiate your points of view.

At the end of the week, be prepared to summarize or draw conclusions from the presentation experience.
