(Solution) nr511 SNAPPS Presentation


SNAPPS is a learner-centered approach to case presentation in the clinical setting. This model allows the studentto take an active role in their educational encounter by discussing the patient encounter beyond the facts, verbalizing their clinical reasoning, asking questions, and engaging in follow-up learning pertinent to the educational encounter. This exercise is designed to develop the student’s ability to organize patient information in a meaningful way and guide the student in their oral patient presentations in the clinical setting.


Activity Learning Outcomes

Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Summarize patient findings into an organized oral presentation. (CO 1, 6)
  • Demonstrate clinical reasoning skills. (CO 1)
  • Identify their own knowledge gaps and inquire about uncertainties, difficulties, or alternative approaches. (CO 2)
  • State a diagnostic and therapeutic plan for management of a patient. (CO 4)
  • Select a case-related issue for self-study. (CO 3, 4)


Due Date:

The oral presentation and written assignment are due by Sunday 11:59p.m. MT.

Total Points Possible:  100


  1. Using a patient seen in their clinical setting, students will give an oral presentation (via Voice Thread or Kaltura) using the 6-step learner-centered SNAPPS model to mimic a real life presentation to the preceptor by:
  • Briefly summarizing the relative history and findings;
  • Narrowing the differential to three relevant possibilities using the pertinent positive and negative findings;
  • Analyzing the differential by comparing and contrasting the possibilities;
  • Probing the preceptor by asking questions about uncertainties, difficulties, or alternative approaches;
  • Identifying a treatment plan for the patient; and
  • Select a case-related issue for self-directed learning
  1. In addition to the oral presentation, the student will submit the written findings of their research for the case-related, self-directed learning topic that was identified in the presentation.
  2. The written portion of this assignment will be submitted on the “SNAPPS Template for Written Assignment” using appropriate evidence-based, scholarly references and using appropriate APA reference and in-text citations.
  3. Theoral presentation must be submitted to the Week 5 discussion board before Sunday, 11:59p.m. MT. The written portion of the assignment must be submitted on the template provided to the assignment box before Sunday, 11:59p.m. MT.  If either one of the required portions of the assignment are missing, deductions will be taken according to the Chamberlain University Late Assignment Policy.


What is the self-directed learning issue that was identified in your oral presentation?


Abdominal pain


Research the self-directed learning issue and provide a summary of your findings which is fully supported by appropriate, scholarly, EBM references.


Acute abdominal pain is highly prevalent among patients presenting at the Emergency care unit. According to Jacobson (2017), an estimate of 10% of the total patients presented at the Emergency unit complains of acute abdominal pain. In light of this, the abdomen is an anatomical body area bounded by the lower margin of the ribs atop, the pelvic bone underneath as well as the flanks on the sides. There exist a number of causes for abdominal pain that range from mild and self-restraining e.g. irritable bowel syndrome to life-threatening causes such as burst abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs.)

Better abdominal patient outcomes can be attained through timely and accurate diagnosis outcomes in a more explicit management. As such, the salient characteristics of abdominal pain such as location, timing and duration are crucial to the pain’s diagnosis. The causes for abdominal pain are categorized as either urgent or non-urgent. In regards to this,…Please click the Paypal icon below to purchase full solution for only $10
