Stroke Prevention Media

Note: You will complete this week’s Discussion after you complete Assignment 1 of this week.

In this Discussion, you provide and receive feedback on the stroke prevention media created in this week’s Assignment. This exchange between you and your colleagues is an opportunity to practice your interprofessional collaboration skills, which are an essential rudiment of nursing practice. In clinical settings, you must be able to articulately express your thoughts and communicate with colleagues. This Discussion is designed to help you improve this skill, as well as encourage you to listen to your colleagues and acknowledge that all views are valid and worthy of consideration. As you review the stroke prevention media piece created by your colleagues, keep the best interests of the specific patient population in mind. Use the feedback you receive to refine your own stroke prevention media prior to submitting the final Assignment in Week 11.
