Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Concept Map

Professional Context

Concept maps are widely used in nursing care. They can be effective tools for organizing workload, prioritizing patient care strategies, and developing personalized care approaches. In addition to organizing care, they can aid in ensuring that the a patient’s care is individualized to not only their health conditions, but also their familial cultural, and environmental situation.


You created a draft of an evidence-based concept map to illustrate an approach to care for a patient in the Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Care media piece. For this assignment, you will build upon and refine your draft of the concept map, as well as develop a narrative to support your concept map. Your concept map and narrative for the individualized care of your chosen case should demonstrate that you have considered and researched the following.


The bullet points below correspond to grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your map and narrative address all of the bullets below, at minimum. You may also want to read the Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Concept Map Scoring Guide and Guiding Questions: Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Concept Map (both linked in the Resources) to create an outline for your assignment and to better understand how each criterion will be assessed.

When creating your concept map and narrative, be sure to note the areas where you need to include your evidence-based support. Also, be clear about what your communication strategies are for relating information to the patient and their family.
