Total points possible: 240 points

• Research, compose, and type a scholarly paper based on the scenario provided by your faculty, and choose a
conclusion scenario to discuss within the body of your paper. Reflect on lessons learned in this class about
technology, privacy concerns, and legal and ethical issues and address each of these concepts in the paper. Consider
the consequences of such a scenario. Do not limit your review of the literature to the nursing discipline only because
other health professionals are using the technology, and you may need to apply critical thinking skills to its
applications in this scenario.
• Use Microsoft Word and APA formatting. Consult your copy of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological
Association, as well as the resources in Doc Sharing if you have questions (e.g., margin size, font type and size
(point), use of third person, etc.). Take advantage of the writing service SmartThinking, which is accessed by clicking
on the link called the Tutor Source, found under the Course Home area.

references to a few key sources (minimum of three required).

provides a narrative outline of what will follow (i.e., the assignment criteria).

apply to the scenario and the ending you chose. Demonstrate support from sources of evidence (references)
included as in‐text citations.
• Choose and identify one of the possible endings provided for the scenario, and construct your paper based on its
implications to the scenario. Make recommendations about what should have been done and what could be done to
correct or mitigate the problems caused by the scenario and the ending you chose. Demonstrate support from
sources of evidence (references) included as in‐text citations.
• Present the advantages and disadvantages of informatics relating to your scenario and describe professional and
ethical principles appropriate to your chosen ending. Use facts from supporting sources of evidence, which must be
included as in‐text citations.

Choose one of the following outcomes:
1. A HIPAA violation occurs, and client data is exposed to the media.
2. A medication error has harmed a client.
3. A technology downtime that impacts patient care occurs, and an error is made.

patient data.
