Overview: Life Review Analysis

For this assignment, you will reflect on your interview with the older adult, introduce the individual to the reader, and respond to guiding questions to prepare an analysis paper.


Your paper should include the following sections:

1. Introduction of Older Adult – This is the overall context of your interview but should not include the entire interview itself.

2. Analysis of the Life Review Interview – This includes description of the goals and benefits of life review, your differentiation between a Life Review and ordinary remembering and your analysis of the degree of ego integrity reached by the older adult.

3. Student’s Reflections – This describes your personal experience during the process, any impact it will have on your clinical practice, and a projection of your own legacy.

4. References – This is a list of resources you used during your interview and analysis recorded in APA format. Use at least 3 in-text citations of your sources.

Use APA format throughout paper and references as appropriate. The paper should be no longer than 6 pages (not counting Pages 1-3 of this document and your page of references). If you have questions, please discuss them with your Academic Coach.

You must also scan, upload, and submit your  Interview Consent Form in the appropriate assignment portal. This form counts toward up to 15 points of your Life Review Analysis score. Your Interview Subject’s full name must appear on the signed consent form!

Details about each section are given later in this document.

Performance Objectives:

· Apply gerontologic nursing principles and standards in nursing practice across the continuum of elder care.

· Use current evidence and theories in care of older adults.

· Conduct a personal interview with an older adult for the purpose of documenting Life Review.


Use this rubric to guide your work on the assignment, “Life Review Analysis.”

The completed Life Review Interview will be analyzed, tying together what the student has learned from the literature about the goals and benefits of Life Review as well as evaluating the interviewee’s status according to Erikson’s final developmental stage, Ego Integrity vs. Despair.

Upload and submit your Interview Consent Form (with elder’s signature) in the appropriate Week 4 assignment portal. This is due 2359 Saturday of Week 4 along with your Life Review Analysis.

B. Introduction of Older Adult

Do not submit the entire interview.

· Describe how and why you selected this older adult (use only older adult’s initials).

· Include a brief biography of your elder. For example:

C.R. is an 84-year-old white male living with his wife of 60 years in Arlington, Texas. He was born in Madison, Wisconsin, the oldest of four children. During his childhood, he lived on a farm, graduated high school and moved to Chicago, IL. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Chicago…..etc., etc.

The brief biography should be at maximum one page in length Do not rewrite your interview, only summarize it. Since the instructor was not present at your interview, this section of the paper provides the context of your interview.

C. Analysis of the Life Review Interview

· Compare and contrast the elements of a Life Review with those of ordinary remembering. Give two supporting examples from your interview. How are they similar, and how are they different?

· Describe 4 goals and benefits of life review. Give references and citations to support them.

· Based on your interview, describe the degree on a scale of 0 to 10 of Erikson’s ego integrity reached by the elder. Give a rationale for your assessment that includes at least one example from the interview.

· Include the reference(s) for your supporting citations (APA style).

· Organize your analysis so that it is  complete and  concise. Your total paper (beginning with Page 4 of this document) should be 6 pages maximum in length, not counting your page of references.

D. Student’s Reflections

· This interview experience was/was not an enlightening experience. Why?

· Describe the most significant point of the interview to you, and explain why.

· Describe a difficult/anguishing part of the interview, if any, and explain why.

· In what way might you change your general approach to elders in your clinical practice after this experience, if any?

· Define “legacy” in your own terms. Discuss what you would like your legacy to be; what would you like to leave for others?

E. References
