Running head: CASE STUDY
Case Study: Basic Cardiac Life Support
A competent Staff Development Educator is central in achieving global health education
to learners. A nurse educator has the responsibility for preparing a clinically proficient and
traditionally-competent nursing workforce through the nursing education. A Staff Development
Educator should ensure that the health works are equipped with the required knowledge,
experiences, attitudes together with the skills which are essential to offer high-quality healthcare.
There is enough evidence to prove that the health workers such as nurses may not be adequately
prepared to meet the emerging needs of the society trough the adoption of the modern
technologies, for instance, Basic Cardiac Life Support. It is thus imperative that the staff
development educator has what is required to offer support and guidance to establish a
competence-based curriculum for their educational programs to promote excellence in patient
care as well as patient results by patient education. Through the use of the case study provided,
the paper will try to give an analysis of the essential elements and issues any nursing educator
may face while executing their services to the learners. Some of the problems the paper will
address include the motivational issues in learning, the intrinsic motivational factors, the
problems of resistant learning, benefits of using the BCLS technology among other critical
components concerning the education in the case scenario. Typically, the Staff Development
Educator plays a significant role in promoting excellence in patient care as well as patient
outcomes by adequate patient education.
Dealing with motivational issues in this diverse learning group.
Diverse learning group needs diverse teaching strategies. Educational psychology argues
that the motivation of people is a major factor I most learning theories. Staff Development
Educator should develop various strategies which will promote the motivational level of learners
to facilitate efficient learning and understanding of the topic. It is also important to note that the
diverse nature of the learners may need the development and establishment of the strategies that
will facilitate the students’ learning the diverse setting (Nilsson & Stomberg 2008).
Firstly, it would be essential if the educator fine-tunes the learning challenge. It is evident that
learners are always motivated to learn when the activities before them are linked to their level of
skills. As an instructor, I will ensure that the learning is a fashioned exercise to enable the
students to work at the very edge of their abilities and maintain upping the challenges as they
improve. For instance, while teaching the basics and use of the simulation machine which was
purchased by the facility, I will try to match the curricula with the current knowledge of the
students so as the learning should not be boring.
Secondly, I will start with the questions but not responses while teaching the diverse
students. Because the learners may be of majority age, I will minimize the anxiety and too much
think by starting with the various questions ...
