When patients in acute care settings present with psychosocial health conditions, advanced practice nurses are responsible for stabilizing them, making diagnoses, establishing treatment regimens, and transitioning patients to outpatient and community-based services. Advanced practice nurses must also maintain the safety, dignity, and confidentiality of all patients while coordinating care with the multidisciplinary care team. For this Assignment, as you examine this week’s i-Human patient case study, consider how you might evaluate and treat patients presenting with psychosocial health conditions. To prepare: Review this week’s i-Human case study. Based on the provided patient information, think about the health history you would need to collect from the patient. Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the patient’s condition. Reflect on how the results would be used to make a diagnosis. Identify three to five possible conditions to consider in a differential diagnosis for the patient. Consider the patient’s diagnosis. Think about clinical guidelines that might support this diagnosis. Reflect on a treatment plan for the patient that includes health promotion and patient education strategies. To complete: As you interact with this week’s i-Human patient, complete the assigned case study. For guidance on using i-Human, refer to thei-Human Patients Case Player Student Manualin the Week 1 Learning Resources.
