Photo Credit: Getty Images/RooM RFCardiovascular conditions are among the leading causes of hospitalization and death among older adults, even though many of the risk factors that contribute to such conditions are preventable or manageable. In your role as an advanced practice nurse, you must be able to apply sound critical thinking and diagnostic reasoning skills to correctly assess and diagnosis these conditions. You also play an important role in helping patients manage disorders by planning necessary treatments, assessments, and follow-up care.
To prepare:
Review the Week 5 Case Assignment document in the Learning Resources.
Reflect on the patient’s symptoms and aspects of disorders that may be present.
Consider how you might assess, perform diagnostic tests, and recommend medications to treat patients presenting with the symptoms in the case study.
The Assignment:
After reviewing the case and the accompanying case analysis questions, included in the document, answer the 10 questions directly in the Case Assignment document. When providing evidence to support your answers, be sure they evidenced-based, current (no more than 5 years old), and follow current standards of care. Follow APA 7th edition formatting.
