Case Study 1 A middle-aged adult with type 2 diabetes and an above knee amputation that occurred five years ago as a result of diabetes-related foot disease.
Develop a creative and visually appealing 10-minute narrated educational e-poster based on one of the provided case studies. The e-poster should be targeted towards consumers (not health professionals), much like a poster you would see in a hospital or general practice waiting room.

Your assessment should include: • Your name, student number and the case study you have chosen. • The definition and pathophysiology of the chronic condition and disability and how the conditions intersect/relate to one another. • An infographic created by you, that provides some epidemiological statistics. • The factors that impact on quality of life for the case study and the impacts the chronic condition and disability have on quality of life, independence, and activities of living. • An innovative and relevant strategy/action/behaviour change that the person in the case study themselves can implement at home to support their independence and quality of life. Outline the relevance of the identified strategy/action/behaviour change for the person in the case study, and what your (the RNs) role will be in assisting the person to be able to independently complete/achieve the strategy/action/behaviour change. • A drawing/image of a health behaviour theory (for example, the health belief model, theory of planned behaviour etc.) that incorporates considerations from the case study into the model (e.g. think of the case studies age/stage of life, NRSG372: Chronic Illness and their conditions and associated risk factors/symptoms). Indicate how you, as the RN, could apply the theory to encourage the case study to implement the innovative and relevant strategy/action/behaviour change you have identified. • An appropriate and real service/support/group in your local area that could assist the person in the case study to improve their independence and quality of life. Include a description of the real service/support/group in your local area, its relevance and why/how the service will assist the person in the case study. • The role of the NDIS in the case study’s ongoing care needs and how you, as an RN, can promote one of the seven elements of the NDIS Code of Conduct when supporting the person in the case study in the management of their conditions. • Intext referencing must be included on the e-poster. • A reference list must be included on the e-poster.

Type 2 Diabetes and Amputation
Definition and Pathophysiology:
Type 2 Diabetes: A chronic condition characterized by insulin resistance and high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period.
Above-Knee Amputation: A surgical procedure done to remove a limb due to complications such as severe infection or tissue death, often related to diabetes (Lauwers et al,2024).
Intersection/Relation: The above-knee amputation is a direct consequence of untreated or poorly managed type 2 diabetes, leading to severe diabetes-related foot disease (Ezzatvar & García-Hermoso,2023).
Impact on Quality of Life:
Factors Affecting Quality of Life: Physical mobility, mental health (stress, depression), financial impact, and social interactions (Tan Dat et al,2023).
- Impacts of Conditions: Reduced independence, limitations on activities of daily living, and the need for assistive devices or support (Lu & Guo,2023).
Strategy/Action/Behaviour Change:
Identified Strategy: Implementation of a daily physical activity routine adapted to the individual's abilities, focusing on improving cardiovascular health and managing blood sugar levels (Tuglo,2023).
Relevance and RN’s Role: This strategy is relevant for maintaining physical health and preventing further complications. As an RN, you would assess the individual's capabilities, suggest suitable exercises, and provide motivational support.
Local Service/Support Group:
Service Identified: A local community centre offering adaptive physical activities for individuals with disabilities (Borderie et al,2023).
Relevance and Assistance: This service provides a safe environment for physical activity, promoting independence and improving quality of life. Participation in such a group can also offer social support and reduce feelings of isolation
NDIS Role and RN Promotion:
Reference List
Role of NDIS: Funding support for physical therapy, prosthetics, and adaptive equipment to aid in daily living and mobility (Anita et al,2023).
RN’s Promotion of NDIS Code of Conduct Element: Respect for individuality – as an RN, you would personalise care plans and support the individual's choices and participation in their care and rehabilitation process (Eckert et al,2024).
