Part of your role as an NP is that of an educator, not only for our patients, but for our colleagues as well. The research you do for your individual presentation will require you to think critically, which will serve to reinforce your knowledge. The presentation component will allow you to disseminate your new knowledge to your classmates in this adult learning model.
Create a 5-slide draft copy of your Disease Topic Presentation on the topic you selected in Week 1 in the form of a case study. Include the following elements:
- Analyze what is being measured physiologically through lab work and diagnostic tests.
- Interpret the meaning of abnormal lab and diagnostic test results specific to the patient’s medical problems.
- Explain emerging controversies, natural alternatives, and biopsychosocial issues that may affect the diagnosis and treatment. Include supporting evidence by using resources through Access®, the course textbook, or academic articles available in the University Library.
- Develop an age-appropriate, evidence-based treatment plan that includes how the NP can mitigate barriers that may affect diagnosis and treatment.
Format your presentation according to APA guidelines.
Cite and reference all sources.
