If you can use Australian sources, that will be great. International sources can also be used. I have done some research on resources, which I can attach in files.

So mainly, it is a critical evaluation of my organisation’s (residential aged care facility) procedure related to outbreak management and infection control and to compare with best practice, and to find gaps in practice compared with workplace policy/procedure.

The essay is about outbreak management but basically we are talking about preventing outbreak by managing a single case before it becomes an outbreak.

I would suggest that you narrow your intervention to one resident where you found a gap following auditing practice against the procedure.

I have attached organisation’s infection control policy and outbreak management procedure. In Background, you need to compare it with best practice to prevent the outbreak. You need to mention steps to prevent the outbreak by managing a single case of influenza.
You can use steps like- isolating a resident when they have first signs of influenza, putting signs on door, doing influenza test asap, informing GP, family, staff training etc.
Also, finding gaps in practice like staff behaviour- not putting on and removing PPE correctly. Lack of communication, routine cleaning, cleaning of shared medical equipment or no shared equipment.
then in strategies, you can mention about managing these issues by training etc- using best evidence literature or Australian gov websites.

In evaluation- you will need evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention via a measurement strategy. For example a reaudit of practice identified X% improvement in X. What measurement will you use to ensure that compliance is achieved ongoing.

According to my educator-
‘I suggest pick the checklist and just analyse that one against the literature and best practice advice – it’s not so much about finding gaps, its more around the critical analysis of the policy : what is good about it, what might need to be improved and what does the literature say is a good policy on this topic? What should be included?’

The course provider do not know if you make our policy up either so be creative.
They also don’t know if you make data up – it’s an academic essay , it’s all about your referencing and links with best practice

My role is registered nurse and the essay has to be written in third person. You can makeup organisation name.
