Week 2: Altered Physiology

NURS 6051 Module 1 Assignment: Case Study Analysis

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.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • Evaluate cellular processes and alterations within cellular processes
  • Analyze alterations in the immune system that result in disease processes
  • Identify racial/ethnic variables that may impact physiological functioning
  • Evaluate the impact of patient characteristics on disorders and altered physiology

Module 1 Assignment: Case Study Analysis

An understanding of cells and cell behavior is a critically important component of disease diagnosis and treatment. But some diseases can be complex in nature, with a variety of factors and circumstances impacting their emergence and severity. NURS 6051 Module 1 Assignment: Case Study Analysis

Effective disease analysis 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 understanding of the signals and symptoms of alterations in cellular processes is a critical step in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. For APRNs, this understanding 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.

To prepare:

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 Assignment (1- to 2-page case study analysis)

Develop a 1- to 2-page case study analysis in which you:

  • Explain why you think the patient presented the symptoms described.
  • Identify the genes that may be associated with the development of the disease.
  • Explain the process of immunosuppression and the effect it has on body systems.

  • WELCOME TO WEEK 2

    Posted on: Monday, December 7, 2020 2:50:57 AM EST

     

    Good Monday Students!

    Please note the assignment for week 2 and make sure to follow the rubric. Make sure to review the announcement for SafeAssign and make sure you stay within the limits of the assignment for matching. If you have a high matching please email me the reason and I will review.

     

    WEEK 2:  The Assignment (1- to 2-page case study analysis)

    NURS 6051 Module 1 Assignment: Case Study Analysis Scenario 4: A 65-year-old obese African American male patient presents to his HCP with crampy left lower quadrant pain, constipation, and fevers to 101˚ F. He has had multiple episodes like this one over the past 15 years and they always responded to bowel rest and oral antibiotics. He has refused to have the recommended colonoscopy even with his history of chronic inflammatory bowel disease (diverticulitis), sedentary lifestyle, and diet lacking in fiber. His paternal grandfather died of colon cancer back in the 1950s as well. He finally underwent colonoscopy after his acute diverticulitis resolved. Colonoscopy revealed multiple polyps that were retrieved, and the pathology was positive for adenocarcinoma of the colon.

    Develop a 1- to 2-page case study analysis in which you:

    • Explain why you think the patient presented the symptoms described.
    • Identify the genes that may be associated with the development of the disease.
    • *Remember when you think of genes do not just think of congenital anomalies. Think environment, disease that would or could specifically modify the gene and cause mutation. 
    • Explain the process of immunosuppression and the effect it has on body systems.
    • *When you have an injury to a gene why or how does this cause immunosuppression? If one is immunocompromised what as a provider should you do? Consider?
    • By Day 7 of Week 2

    Submit your Case Study Analysis Assignment by Day 7 of Week 2.

    Reminder: The School 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 (available at https://academicguides.waldenu.edu/writingcenter/templates). All papers submitted must use this formatting.

    APA – WRITING 

    • Any questions on the APA standards please review through the writing center. Specifically you can use the template for nursing and just insert your writings. As far as the header on your papers since it is not research driven I am okay without the headers at this point but they need to be:

     

    SafeAssign /Academic Integrity

    • Students as a reminder I want you to understand Academic Integrity is critical to your success. Sometimes as writers we get carried away in our thoughts and/or stressed and many times adopt others thought or opinions and forget to give them credit.
    • It is very important that you review your SafeAssign score and go back and paraphrase and/or give credit to your source both appropriately. In-text citations are needed as well as the source noted on your reference page.
      • Just listing sources and not giving credit within the content of your writings is still a violation.
      • If you list a cite that does not exist or is not retrievable that as well is a violation; your citations must be current and retrievable.
      • If your SafeAssign shows a high matching for another student you need to revisit your paper and use your own words (paraphrase) or cite accordingly.
      • I do understand high matchings for authors, source list, or assignment instructions or assessments, i.e. medications, etc.. but matching another students paper, as high as I have seen >50 even 60-74 or even 100% is a concern.
      • Yes, sometimes if you have done everything you think is possible and you are still lost with the effort of change, please reach out to me via email  what happened. I know there have been times where you have submitted twice and it shows me this. Sometimes just a simple explanation is all I need.

    Have a great week everyone. Please text me if you need anything.
