Telehealth encompasses a wide range of basic to complex health care delivery options, with an equally expansive array of technologies that may be employed. For this assignment, you will locate a scholarly article published within the last 3 years in a peer-reviewed journal on telehealth. This assignment consists of two parts; Part One requires you to develop and present a two-paragraph assessment comprising a précis and critical evaluation of a scholarly article focusing on a telehealth technology, and the second part requires you to construct a Mind Map to generate ideas about how the telehealth technology you identified can be used in your current practice.
Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:
PART I: Précis and Critical Evaluation.
Donald Davidson, in his book, American Composition and Rhetoric, discusses the précis as follows:
“A précis is not an outline, but a summary or digest. It is useful as an exercise in grasping the essential ideas of an already completed composition and in stating these ideas in concentrated form. The précis shears away all elaborations of the thought and gives only what is left, in such a way as to make the summary a complete composition. It does not, therefore, skeletonize the original composition so much as it reduces its scale. Many of the articles in The Reader’s Digest are only précis, so skillfully done that the average reader does not know that he is reading a summary. Since the précis says a great deal within a brief space, it is of great service in taking notes on library assignments and general reading.”
The précis should be an organization of ideas, include logical sequencing of points, contain clear and meaningful expression, and use language suitable to the situation. When finished, the précis should clearly state:
PART II: Mind Map.
Brainstorm to generate ideas about how the telehealth technology you identified can be used in your current practice using a mind map. Submit the final map along with the précis to the Topic drop box.
How to do it:
Submit both the précis and the final mind map in fulfillment of this assignment.
