Simon jones is a 60 years old man who has been recently diagnosed with the bowel cancer. At the end of Simon’s journey, he is discharged home, with the follow ups for upcoming weeks such as Colorectal OPD appointment which is scheduled for 6 weeks and another appointment to Stomal therapy clinic made for 2 weeks. All medications are discussed by the pharmacist along with a refe
al that is sent to community health nurses who are supposed to visit Simon for 2 and 4 days post discharge so as to check stoma and wound care. Also, STN supplies are obtained from ostomy association. For the annotated bibliography, the articles selected tends to explore details about palliative care in the home setting post operation; in regards to senior citizens, carers, health professionals as well as the ba

The motive of an annotated bibliography here is focused towards providing up to date knowledge to the health care professionals so as to enable them in order to provide cost effective and efficient care which improves patient as well as tends to provide care to the families.

As per the study, nurses engaged in undergraduate research before profession possesses better skills in showing evidence based practice. ( Keib, Cailor et al, 2017, page-43) (Leach, hofmeyer et al, 2015, page-202). Also, the study shows value of this skill and ability to analyse and interpret research in order to have positive impact on clinical care (Keib, cailor et al, 2017, page-43). The nurse will surely gain considerable knowledge with the help of research, research analysis and message deconstruction as well as resulting which can be further applied in everyday practice.

This article is much relevant to the case study being much similar diagnosis and the treatment along with the age criteria as per the case. This article aims to address the effect of age factor that Simon will face having undergone the surgery for bowel cancer. The research targets the 137 patients to conduct study for 1 year who all are aged between 60 to 82 years.
