Case Study 1

Case Study 1

I do not need a title page. This is a discussion board posting. I will attach the assigned case study.

 

Post a brief description of your patient’s health needs from the patient case study you assigned. Be specific. Then, explain the type of treatment regimen you would recommend for treating your patient, including the choice or pharmacotherapeutics you would recommend and explain why. Be sure to justify your response. Explain a patient education strategy you might recommend for assisting your patient with the management of their health needs. Be specific and provide examples.

 

You must make at least a reference to course materials and two outside sources in your initial posting (At least 3 sources for initial posts). You will respond to your colleagues’ posts in Week 10.

 

Main textbook reference:

 

Rosenthal, L. D., & Burchum, J. R. (2021). Lehne’s pharmacotherapeutics for advanced practice nurses and physician assistants (2nd ed.) St. Louis, MO: Elsevier.
