Gastrointestinal and Hepatobiliary Disorders

Gastrointestinal (GI) and hepatobiliary disorders affect the structure and function of the GI tract. Many of these disorders often have similar symptoms, such as abdominal pain, cramping, constipation, nausea, bloating, and fatigue. Since multiple disorders can be tied to the same symptoms, it is important for advanced practice nurses to carefully evaluate patients and prescribe a treatment that targets the cause rather than the symptom.

Once the underlying cause is identified, an appropriate drug therapy plan can be recommended based on medical history and individual patient factors. In this Assignment, you examine a case study of a patient who presents with symptoms of a possible GI/hepatobiliary disorder, and you design an appropriate drug therapy plan.

To Prepare

  • Review the case study assigned by your Instructor for this Assignment
  • Reflect on the patient’s symptoms, medical history, and drugs currently prescribed.
  • Think about a possible diagnosis for the patient. Consider whether the patient has a disorder related to the gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary system or whether the symptoms are the result of a disorder from another system or other factors, such as pregnancy, drugs, or a psychological disorder.
  • Consider an appropriate drug therapy plan based on the patient’s history, diagnosis, and drugs currently prescribed.

By Day 7 of Week 4

Write a 1-page paper that addresses the following:

  • Explain your diagnosis for the patient, including your rationale for the diagnosis.
  • Describe an appropriate drug therapy plan based on the patient’s history, diagnosis, and drugs currently prescribed.
  • Justify why you would recommend this drug therapy plan for this patient. Be specific and provide examples.

Hello Class,
I hope all of you had a great weekend!  As an advanced practice nurse, you will likely encounter patients who will present with symptoms affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Of special note, is the consideration that most symptoms concerning the GI tract are non-specific and therefore, diagnosing diagnoses of the GI tract require thoughtful and careful investigation. Similarly, hepatobiliary disorders may also mirror many of the signs and symptoms that patients present when suffering from GI disorders.

How might you tease out the specific signs and symptoms between these potential disorders and body systems? What drug therapy plans will best address these disorders for your patients?
This week, you examine GI and hepatobiliary disorders. You will review a patient case study and consider those factors in recommending and prescribing a drug therapy plan for your patient.  Please see below for the case-
Patient HL comes into the clinic with the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The patient has a history of drug abuse and possible Hepatitis C. HL is currently taking the following prescription drugs:

  • Synthroid 100 mcg daily
  • Nifedipine 30 mg daily
  • Prednisone 10 mg daily

Event Audit: HMG6001

The purpose of the event audit is to analyze an event with the “eye” of a mega-event planner. You should be observing all aspects of the event, no longer only as an attendee, but now as if you are going to be running this specific event in the future. Document what was successful at this event, as well as what needs improvement. In addition, creatively brainstorm what “other” added amenities might enhance the experience of the attendee.

You will want to use an event that you will be attending while in this class during the term. You must attend an event (virtually or in-person when safely possible). You cannot report on an event that you attended in the past unless all options have been exhausted. Any event can be audited such as a Water-Fire, an event on campus, comedy club, small dinner party, birthday party, or even a virtual concert. (Note: A movie cannot be considered as a “live” event for the purposes of this assignment.)

Well Woman Health Screenings

This discussion will allow you to examine several different preventive guidelines related to women’s health. Please read the following three scenarios and choose ONE  for your initial post; be sure to address all the questions posed and include at least three scholarly sources within your initial post.

Note: As you are choosing a topic, please try to make sure that all topics are chosen at least by one person. You can see this by noting if anyone has posted to the topic within the corresponding threads.

Breast Cancer Screening

A 39-year-old female presents to your office for her annual well-woman exam. She reports that she has a maternal aunt and a cousin who have had breast cancer, so she does her self-breast exams every month. She would like to start getting mammograms, but her friends all say she doesn’t need to worry about a mammogram until she’s at least close to 50.

  1. What are the mammogram recommendations from American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), American Cancer Society (ACS), and United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF)?
  2. What is meant by shared decision-making regarding screening for breast cancer?
  3. What are the screening recommendations regarding self-breast exams and clinical breast exams?
  4. Based on the scenario provided, what recommendations would you give this patient?
  5. What factored into your decision-making?

Cervical Cancer Prevention/Screening

An 18-year-old is accompanied by her mother for her first visit to the gynecologist. She has never been sexually active. She has no concerns with her menses. Her mom reports that she brought her in “because she is 18 and when I turned 18, I had to get my first Pap smear.” Her mother requests the patient have a Pap smear and be tested for HPV “just in case.” The patient is up to date on all vaccines “mandatory for school” but has never had the HPV vaccine.

  1. What are the recommendations on the HPV vaccine?
  2. How would you counsel this patient about the HPV vaccine?
  3. What are the current ASCCP guidelines for Pap smears and HPV testing?
  4. How will you explain the rationale to the patient and the mother?

STI Prevention and Screening

A 52-year-old female presents to your clinic concerned that she may have contracted a sexually transmitted infection (STI). She states she is recently divorced and admits she never had to practice “safe sex” before and that she has been with several people over the last few months. She has been drinking “way too much” and feels she should just be tested for everything as she has been experimenting.

  1. What type of questions would you want to ask to begin to focus your plan? How will her risk factors affect your screening?
  2. There are several preventive guidelines related to STI risk and screening. What do the current guidelines indicate she should be screened for?
  3. What recommendations should you make regarding “safe sex” practices?
  4. Are there any other preventive guidelines you should address with this patient?

Reply Posts

Review the presentations of two other peers who chose two different topics. Discuss how health disparities in women could affect their care (for example, geographic location, race, finances, literacy, etc.). Use the UpToDate database as one of your required references and a second scholarly reference of your choice; remember you should have at least two references for each peer post.

Please refer to the Grading Rubric for details on how this activity will be graded.

Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), Racial Disparity, and Privilege

Overview

In reading your assigned textbook chapters and select articles, and reviewing the CDC website link on IPV found within the Learning Material section of this module, you will have looked at both ends of the spectrum—from disparity to privilege—and at triggers, which are not bound by any social class, leading to intimate partner violence. Consider the following:

  1. Does trauma-informed care apply to IPV? Why or why not?
  2. Review the maternal and infant mortality statistics within our country and your state. Do you note any disparity?
  3. How can “privilege” become a beacon for change?
  4. Intimate partner violence expresses a need for power and control by many methods. Would you recognize them all?
  5. Is there a path that most violent individuals follow?

Reflect on the content presented and submit a one- to two-page journal (this does not include the title or reference pages) providing an example of how you have been witness to IPV, disparity, and or privilege and outline how you, as an APRN, can recognize and reduce violence and health disparity in women.

You may journal in first person, and this assignment does not require references as it is your thoughts; however, be sure to review the rubric, as a minimum of one reference is required to be considered exemplary work. If you choose to use quotes or citable material, you are expected to follow APA formatting.

Please refer to the Grading Rubric for details on how this activity will be graded.

The APRN’s Effect on Women’s Health and the Use of Motivational Interviewing to Increase Knowledge around the Importance of Preventive Guidelines

Watch the Motivational Interview of a woman who is pregnant and continuing to drink alcohol.

Motivational Interviewing: Discussing Alcohol Use in Pregnancy (17:37 minutes)

Motivational Interviewing: Discussing Alcohol Use in Pregnancy Video Transcript

Consider what you learned from the video, along with other content that has been discussed in this course. For your initial post, choose one of the three scenarios presented below and answer the following questions. (Please include at least three scholarly sources within your initial post):

Questions:

  • As an APRN, how could you positively affect the health of the woman in the scenario you chose?
  • What would be the pros and cons of utilizing the technique of Motivational Interviewing with the woman in the scenario.
  • Trial the techniques you have read about over the previous few weeks related to Motivational Interviewing with a coworker, family or friend. What was this experience like? Do you see benefits to becoming more comfortable with this technique? Why or why not?

Note: As you are choosing a topic, please try to make sure that all topics are chosen at least by one person. You can see this by noting if anyone has posted to the topic within the corresponding threads

Scenarios:

  1. A 34-year-old female who is 36 weeks pregnant – G2P1AB0 – presents to your office complaining of shortness of breath and ankle swelling. She states she has had “the flu” for several days and is insistent that this is why she can’t stop coughing. She is obviously short of breath when talking. In reviewing her chart, you can see she has a history of hypertension. She states she “”officially” stopped her blood pressure medications when she found out she was pregnant but admits that she rarely took her pills anyway, so “no big deal.”
  2. Sumar has just found out she is pregnant and presents to the local free clinic. She is a 26-year-old G2P0AB1, and her first OB appointment is in two weeks. Sumar thinks she is about 12 to 14 weeks pregnant. She has come to the clinic complaining of indigestion. You notice the strong smell of cigarette smoke, and she admits she smokes one pack of cigarettes a day but states she is smoking less now since she started vaping.
  3. You are seeing a 19-year-old female for STI screening. When reviewing her health and sexual history to determine her risk, she indicates she has had several new partners over the past six months and that she has not been using condoms but does have an IUD. She has started smoking marijuana and has dabbled with some other prescription medications over the previous two months. She is worried about having contracted an STI because she has noticed some “cauliflower” type bumps “down there” and would like to be tested.

Preventative Guidelines – One Guideline and Two Scenarios

Introduction

Throughout this course, we have looked at health promotion and disease prevention and focused on various vulnerable populations. This week’s discussion will focus on applying one guideline to two patients. Please select ONE of the following scenarios and then answer the questions in your initial post. Please include at least three scholarly sources within your initial post.

Scenario A: Focus on Preventative Guidelines for Childhood Immunizations

You are working as an APRN in your local primary care office. The rural town of Maynard has 300 people, a post office, doctor’s office, and a gas station. The primary source of income is farming or driving 45 minutes to a somewhat larger town. With the blizzard coming, all your patients except two have cancelled for the morning. Jose is scheduled at 0900; he is a nine-year-old Hispanic male born in Mexico. He and his family (Mom, Dad, and six siblings, ages six months to 14 years) moved into the area just a few months ago. Jose’s mother reported that he had nearly died at two months after contracting pertussis.

Your final patient of the morning is Irena, a 15-year-old teenage female who lives with her aunt in Maynard. Irena is Romanian and barely speaks any English. Her aunt has been your patient for the past few years, and she told you that Irena had been abducted in Romania at the age of 10. Irena’s parents found her quite by accident when a sex trafficking ring dumped all their “product” in a refugee camp in Serbia just a few months ago. Irena’s parents are still in Romania, but they sent Irena here to live with her aunt.

Scenario B: Focus on Preventative Guidelines for Colorectal Cancer Screening

On a busy Thursday morning, you note on your schedule a couple of patients who routinely “take a long time” no matter what their complaint. Jimmy is a 62-year-old male who is mentally challenged and lives in a local group home. Both his parents passed away last year, and his sister has never really been in the picture. She lives at least eight hours away. Jimmy has a “genetic disorder” but actually his symptoms are more like autism that we are familiar with today. Jimmy’s caregiver states he has been having some problems with constipation but otherwise he seems okay. Jimmy is nonverbal and hates to be touched. Approaching Jimmy can be difficult, and he has taken a swing at staff a couple of times because he doesn’t understand what is going on – especially if they try to touch him to check his pulse or blood pressure.

Having finished up with Jimmy, you move on to Marvin. Marvin is a 67-year-old male here for his annual physical. Marvin is pretty healthy despite a scare with colon cancer when he was 50. He is obsessed with his bowels and even brings charts to each of his appointments as he is always concerned that the cancer will return.

Scenario C: Focus on Preventative Guidelines for Breast Cancer Screening

Volunteering once a month for a mobile clinic, you head out this Saturday morning with two other providers and staff. The mobile RV is a large motorhome retrofitted as a primary care clinic. Headed downtown where there is a large homeless encampment, everyone is excited to see what the day brings.

Miss Eleanor is a 72-year-old African American female who you have seen many times. Today she is complaining of some breast tenderness due to a fall she took with her grocery cart a couple of weeks ago. While examining Eleanor’s breast, you took the opportunity to do a manual breast exam. Eleanor said it had been at least 30 years since she’d had a breast exam and that she had never had a mammogram.

Finishing up your day on the mobile clinic, Sally, a 48-year-old female, is concerned that she has an STI. During Sally’s pelvic exam, you learn that she has been living in a tent under a bridge downtown for about a year. Sally is eager to talk to someone and tells you that she used to work in a medical office as a receptionist but that was a long time ago, before she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. You are concerned that Sally does have an STI and you ask about her medical history. After quite a story, Sally tells you she had a mammogram about two years ago before she left Texas and there was a place the doctor wanted to evaluate further but she never went back for the ultrasound.

Scenario D: Focus on Cervical Cancer Guidelines

Working near a naval base, you see a lot of patients who are somehow connected with the military. Today, Shelesha, a 21-year-old African American female, is requesting to be seen for her annual exam before she leaves for deployment. Shelesha seems really anxious today. She is usually so excited about being on board her ship, but today she is different. You complete her annual exam, but she refuses her cervical and breast exam. After leaving the room so she can get dressed, you return to find Shelesha crying. She finally tells you that she was attacked – sexually assaulted on board her ship six months ago – and she has these “bumps” that keep getting bigger around her vagina and she is worried.

Virginia arrives for her annual well-woman exam. Virginia is a 67-year-old female who has been married for 42 years. Virginia and Harrold are still sexually active with the use of medications, and like clockwork, Virginia comes every year for her pelvic exam requesting a Pap smear. Virginia had breast cancer with a mastectomy when she was 52, but otherwise she is healthy, only taking medication for her cholesterol.

Scenario E: Focus on Prostate Cancer Guidelines

Ivan is a 59-year-old Caucasian male in your office today for his annual exam. He has been reading about prostate cancer and the need to have some lab work done. His wife really wants him to get his PSA drawn, but he’s not so sure. Your physical exam of Ivan is “all normal.” When reviewing Ivan’s health assessment form, you see he smokes two packs of cigarettes a day and his only complaint is a chronic cough.

Chen is 76-year-old gentleman of Chinese descent. He is here today for an annual exam and a recheck of his blood pressure. Chen tells you he just heard from his brother that his PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) is really high, and they are concerned he may have prostate cancer. Chen’s brother is from his father’s second marriage and he is only 59 years old. Chen is asking to have his PSA drawn to make sure he doesn’t have prostate cancer.

Initial Post

Having discussed many guidelines throughout this term, consider the content you have explored. Using this knowledge, answer the following questions related to your chosen scenario. Note: please try to choose a topic for your initial post that you did not choose previously during the semester or aren’t as familiar with so you can gain additional knowledge as we finish up this course

  1. Discuss the guidelines assigned with your scenario.
  2. Will both patients be treated in the same manner? Why or why not?
  3. What would your treatment plan be for each of the individuals in your scenario?

Please include at least three scholarly sources within your initial post.

Is Your State’s Healthcare Policy Making You Sick?

Overview: After you have read Chapters 28, 32, and 33 in your De Chesnay text, consider the healthcare policies within your state. What health-related stories are in the news? Are there any “upstream” concerns in your community? How do you believe that a doctorally prepared APRN could positively affect the overall health of the citizens in your state?

Write a one-to two-page journal submission about your thoughts to the questions that have been posed. Provide references to validate the healthcare policy and your concerns.

You may journal in first person, and this assignment does not require references as it is your thoughts; however, if you choose to use quotes or citable material, you are expected to follow APA formatting.

Please refer to the Grading Rubric for details on how this activity will be graded.

Time to Dissect Research Studies

Overview

Here is a list of five peer-reviewed nursing research journal articles on nursing research that are available through the Regis Library. Choose one of them that is of interest to you to read.

Initial Post

Based on the research article you read, respond to the following prompts:

  • What, if any, was the theoretical framework that was used by article author(s)?
  • Describe the framework; was it from nursing or a borrowed theory?
  • Describe how the framework was used to inform the research study.
  • How much did the researchers write about it in the journal article? For example, was it weaved throughout the paper or mentioned only in the beginning?
  • In your opinion, what other nursing theory might have worked with this research study? Why?
