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.)

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?

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.
