You are on placement in the children’s haematology/oncology ward at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide, South Australia.

Your essay must have an introduction, body and a conclusion, and it must be referenced using APA style (2010, 6th). 

You may choose to use headings derived from the decision-making framework (McDonald & Then, 2019) to help you maintain a clear and structured argument. However, this is not mandatory as the main focus is ensuring the essay structure and ideas are clear and logical.

Academic papers are usually written in the third person, however some parts of this essay may require you to write in the first person (i.e. using ‘I’ and ‘me’). For example, when you are discussing how you would respond to the situation. Regardless of whether you are using first or third person, it is expected that you use formal/professional language and writing style.

If you have questions about this assessment, please post them on the ‘General Discussion Forum’ so that everyone can benefit from the answers. You may also find that somebody else has already asked and received an answer for your question.

If you continue to have difficulties with the assignment despite accessing the above resources, you should email your tutor for support. It is important to do this early, so you have time to implement your tutor’s advice.

Two example papers written by NURS1006 students in 2019 are available below. These papers are written about a different case study and have been used with the kind permission of the students who wrote them.

Case Study:

You are on placement in the children’s haematology/oncology ward at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide, South Australia. During your placement, you have enjoyed caring for a 15-year-old male called ‘Abdul’. Abdul is well-known to staff because he had previously been diagnosed with a rare malignant blood condition. He is well liked by staff, and he is considered mature for his age. Abdul is back in hospital after recent tests showed a re-emergence of his condition. Abdul attends the hospital with his parents, and the paediatric oncologist has recommended a new treatment that has just become available. After meeting with the paediatric oncologist, Abdul initiates a conversation with you while his parents are out. Abdul reports that his parents are refusing to let him receive the treatment, saying the risks are too high. But Abdul says to you, ‘I know the risks, I want to do this, it’s my best chance of a cure’.

Apply the ethical decision-making framework to this case study (Steps 1-3 only).
