With a place squarely in the spotlight for patients diagnosed with all manner of disease, APRNs must demonstrate not only support and compassion, but expertise to guide patients’ understanding of diagnoses and treatment plans.
This expertise goes beyond an understanding of disease and sciences, such as cellular pathophysiology. APRNs must become experts in their patients, understanding their medical backgrounds, pertinent characteristics, and other variables that can be factors in their diagnoses and treatments.
This week, you examine alterations in the immune system and the resultant disease processes. You consider patient characteristics, including racial and ethnic variables, and the impact they have on altered physiology.
Module 1 Assignment: Case Study Analysis
An understa di g of cells and cell behavior is a critically important component of disease diag os s a d treatment. But some diseases can be complex in nature, with a variety of factors a d circumstances impacting their emergence and severity. Effective d sease a alysis often requires an understanding that goes beyond isolated cell behavior. Genes, the environments in which cell processes operate, the impact of patient characteristics, and racial and ethnic variables all can have an important impact.
An unders anding of the signals and symptoms of alterations in cellular processes is a critic l step in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. For APRNs, this
und rst nding can also help educate patients and guide them through their treatment plans.
In this Assignment, you examine a case study and analyze the symptoms presented. You identify cell, gene, and/or process elements that may be factors in the diagnosis, and you explain the implications to patient health.
By Day 1 of this week, you will be assigned to a specific case study for this Case Study Assignment. Please see the “Course Announcements” section of the classroom for your assignment from your Instructor.
THE CASE STUDY.
A 42-year-old man comes to clinic with chief complaint of pain, redness, and swelling of his right calf. He states that he had been working in his yard using a string trimmer when the trimmer slipped and cut his leg. He cleaned the wound with water from the garden hose and covered the wound with a large Band -Aid. Several days later, he developed fever to 100.6˚ F and chills and noticed that his leg was swollen and red. He comes to the emergency department for d finitive ca e.
The Assignment 2-page case study analysis)
Develop a 1- to 2-page case study analy is in which you:
• Identify the genes that may be ssoci ted with the development of the disease.
Reminder: The College of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title page,introduction, summary, and references. The sample paper provided at the Walden Writing Center provides an example of those required elements
