Capstone goal The goal of this capstone project is to reduce the incidence of a norovirus outbreak in long-term care facility by developing, implementing, and evaluating an effective educational module for norovirus outbreak-prevention and management for residence and nurses in a long-term care facility. Capstone Objective Table 1 Capstone Objectives 1. Develop an educational Module a. Identify the long-term facility that will be used as the ideal location for the education. b. Process: The educational modules will be given in the long-term facility through a face-to-face lecture in the facility training room with handouts and relevant educational materials. c. Setting: Genesis long-term care facility, Brackenville Rd, Hockessin, DE 19707 d. Completion…show more content…
Name 3 risk factors of norovirus. IV. Identify 2 diagnostic methods for detecting the infection. V. Discuss the epidemiology of the norovirus outbreak, steps for prevention and control. VI. Discuss surveillance strategies for Norovirus. VII. Discuss Norovirus prevention and control measures. VIII. Classify the different types of norovirus and challenges posed by the norovirus in terms of controlling and preventing outbreaks. IX. By the end of the presentation, the attendees will better understand the collaborative efforts in infection prevention in a long-term care facility. 2. Develop a model for the delivery of the educational module 3. Develop the educational module 4. Develop Educational tools 5. Implement educational module 6. Evaluate results data from evaluation tools 7. Write the review, Evaluation and summary and conclusions sections of the capstone project paper: Sunday Review of Literature The evidence-based review of the literature (ROL) will concentrate on norovirus education in the long-term care facility. Topics to discuss in the review of literature include the pathophysiology of norovirus, treatment, risk factors, signs, and of norovirus, diagnosis, the importance of reporting and surveillance. The ROL will also include LTC awareness of the virus, prevention, and management and an educational design and toolkit for norovirus…show more content…
Strains from different genoclusters bind various HBGAs: Genogroup I viruses favorably bind blood group A and O antigens, whereas genogroup II viruses principally bind A and B antigens. Individual norovirus strains may be capable of infecting only a subset of the human population. Whereas, the different binding profiles found within genogroup I and genogroup II viruses possibly together make nearly all individuals vulnerable to norovirus infection (Barclay et al., 2014). The great variety of norovirus strains and the lack of cross-strain or long-term immunity makes recurrent infections of norovirus throughout life a possibility (Barclay et al.,
