Case Study Pathophysiology Week 6 Discussion

In order to write a case study paper, you must carefully address a number of sections in a specific order with specific information contained in each. The guideline below outlines each of those sections.

Section

Information to Include

Introduction (one Subheading) (patient and problem)

Explain who the patient is (Age, gender, etc.)
Explain what the problem is (What were they diagnosed with, or what happened?)
Introduce your main argument (What should you as a nurse focus on or do?)
Pathophysiology (Next Subheading)

Explain the disease (What are the symptoms? What causes it?)
History(Third Subheading)

Explain what health problems the patient has (Have they been diagnosed with other diseases?)
Detail any and all previous treatments (Have they had any prior surgeries or are they on medication?)
Nursing Physical Assessment ( Fourth Subheading)

List all the patient’s health stats in sentences with specific numbers/levels (Blood pressure, bowel sounds, ambulation, etc.)
Related Treatments(Fifth Subheading)

Explain what treatments the patient is receiving because of their disease
Nursing Diagnosis & Patient Goal(sixth subheading)

Explain what your nursing diagnosis is (What is the main problem for this patient? What need to be addressed?)
Explain what your goal is for helping the patient recover (What do you want to change for the patient?)
Nursing Interventions(seventh subheading)

Explain how you will accomplish your nursing goals, and support this with citations (Reference the literature)
Evaluation( 8th subheading)

Explain how effective the nursing intervention was (What happened after your nursing intervention? Did the patient get better?)
Recommendations/ Conclusion(last Subheading)

Explain what the patient or nurse should do in the future to continue recovery/improvement
Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length and will be graded on how well you complete each of the above sections. You will also be graded on your use of APA Style 7th Edition paper and on your application of nursing journals into the treatments and interventions. For integrating nursing journals, remember the following:

Make sure to integrate citations into all of your paper
Support all claims of what the disease is, why it occurs and how to treat it with references to the literature on this disease
Always use citations for information that you learned from a book or article; if you do not cite it, you are telling your reader that YOU discovered that information (how to treat the disease, etc.)
At least three scholarly sources on the disease of the case study. At least 3 pages long that is not including the title page and reference page. All subheadings must be in bold. Uploaded a preview of a 7th edition title page. Thanks

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
