Assignment: Human Case Study: Evaluating and Managing Neurologic Conditions

Assignment: Human Case Study: Evaluating and Managing Neurologic Conditions
As an advanced practice nurse, you will likely observe patients who experience neurological conditions. While patients with neurological conditions may present typical physical manifestations, such as headaches, dizziness, weakness, and fatigue, many manifestations may not be overtly physical, such as declining memory and social withdrawal. In all cases, your differential diagnosis must take into consideration the role of the patient history and physical examination.

For this Case Study Assignment, you will analyze an i-Human simulation case study about an adult patient with a neurologic condition. Based on the patient’s information, you will formulate a differential diagnosis, evaluate treatment options, and create an appropriate treatment plan for the patient.
To prepare:
Review this week’s Learning Resources. Consider how to assess, diagnose, and treat patients with neurologic conditions.
Access i-Human from this week’s Learning Resources and review this week’s i-Human case study. Based on the provided patient information, think about the health history you would need to collect from the patient.
Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the patient’s condition. Reflect on how the results would be used to make a diagnosis.
Identify three to five possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient.
Consider the patient’s diagnosis. Think about clinical guidelines that might support this diagnosis.
Develop a treatment plan for the patient that includes health promotion and patient education strategies for patients with neurologic conditions.
