Recovery Care Plan

For the Portfolio you will develop two artefacts/assessment pieces that directly relate to the clinical scenario below.
Complete a Recovery Focused Care Plan based on the case study below:

The Two Artefacts/Assessment pieces include the following: 

  • Recovery Focused Care Plan (1000 – 1400 words) which is based on your observations of the presentation in the case study. A minimum of 5 references (although you can cite more) will be required to support your nursing interventions for this assessment.

In the Portfolio you will need to: 

  • Use relevant standards and evidence-based research to support your work
  • All assessment pieces must be completed comprehensively and holistically
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the pathophysiology of mental disorders and its relationship to psychopharmacology and quality use of medicines
  • Ensure that all information that you have sourced is only from peer reviewed journal articles or appropriate textbooks and is correctly referenced with APA 7th edition for citations and reference list for the Recovery Focused Care Plan.

Artefact: Recovery Focused Care Plan  
This artefact will demonstrate your:

  • knowledge and use of nursing interventions for a recovery focused care plan for a patient experiencing a mental health disorder.
  • ability to demonstrate nursing interventions that help a patient recover during a period of mental illness.
  • ability to accurately record key nursing issues in the case study using your assessment skills, which then lead to planning care and providing evidence based interventions.
  • structured assessments to guide interventions
  • various mental health diagnoses and their particular care requirements.
  • recovery-oriented, trauma-informed care for people compelled to receive treatment according to the Victoria Mental Health Act (2014)
  • consumer-focused/person-centred care
  • nurse-led interventions such as sleep, exercise, diet and physical health
  • Your ability to use a range of evidence from peak professional bodies and peer reviewed evidence to support your plan of care

Use the following vignette to use for the completion of assessment 3 – Recovery Care Plan

  • "Susan Smith is a 26-year-old female diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and is on a Disability Support Pension, who has presented to the emergency department with burn marks all down the left side of his chest as she has used hot wax on her skin to self-harm and has sustained first degree burns in this area. The patient has also made multiple lacerations to both of her thighs, and she has burnt her arms in places with a lighter.  She is clear that she is not trying to kill herself and this is self-harming behavior to alleviate her emotional dysregulation and prevent her from engaging in suicide. She has recently broken up from another boyfriend who was with her for 6 weeks and she has a history of multiple relationships and has been a survivor of domestic violence in the past.  Patient has a history of sexual abuse as a child and is estranged from her parents, brother and two sisters. Susan says that the Ministry of Housing wishes to evict her due to hoarding and her flat has been condemned as a fire risk as she has accumulated so much in her flat and when she has been intoxicated with alcohol previously, she has had physical fights with some of the neighbours due to playing her music loudly in the early hours of the morning.  Susan has consumed 2-4 bottles of wine a day for the past 12 months and smokes “a lot of cannabis.” She has attempted suicide previously by overdosing on tablets and 6 months ago was in the Intensive Care Unit, however on this occasion she has come to the emergency department seeking a psychiatric admission for containment of her risky behaviour. She
    has a poor appetite as she mainly spends her money on alcohol and cannabis, and she appears very underweight.  This person presents as malodourous, unkempt and reports her ex-boyfriend has assaulted her physically and stolen a number of her valuable possessions like her jewelry.  Reports she fears males due to her abusive childhood and her previous relationships.  She has no psychotic symptoms; however, her mood is depressed, and she is struggling with suicidal thoughts and wants to take an overdose of tablets.  Her short- and long-term memory: and attention and
    concentration appear to have some impairment – she is finding it difficult to recall information and finds it hard to concentrate and respond to questions asked of her.  You are the mental health nurse who is admitting this patient to the psychiatric ward, you will complete the recovery focused care plan with 5 clear areas of nursing care identified and what interventions you will put in place for short term and long-term care and support of this patient?"
  • All written assessments must align to the following academic standards:

  • use high-level quality contemporary evidence-based literature to inform the discussion and critical analysis, date of evidence within ten years;
  • use of the third person, unless specifically indicated otherwise;
  • APA 7th edition for in-text citations and reference list;
  • 1000 words for each artefact – however an allowance of up to 1400 words will be accepted for each artefact without any penalties. The 10% word count rule will apply to each artefact  hence any artefact below 900 ( -10%) words will be penalised by deduction of marks and any artefact above 1540 ( +10%) words will be penalised by deduction of marks

All assessments should include:

  • Unit Code & Unit Name
  • Student Name
  • Student Identification number
  • Title of assignment
  • An accurate word count that includes in-text citations, but excludes the reference section at the end of the essay


  • Your submission will be checked using Originality Check – any artefact that indicates plagiarism will not be marked and the student will be referred to the unit convener to discuss student disciplinary action
