You will research the above area of content in relation to complaints and disorders that commonly occur in family practice. Please work up a case study that begins with a chief complaint commonly seen in primary care based on that body system. The case should be clear and include all elements of a normal case that might be presented in class (subjective, objective, assessment, diagnostic testing and 5 point plan in part 2.The clinical logs will be helpful for this process, or notes you have taken in clinical regarding cases. The case should be clear, organized, and meet the following guidelines:

Week 5 Part 1: Due by Tuesday 11:59 p.m. MT

Step 1. Review your Week 4 APEA Predictor Exam Results and focus on the “Percent Correct by Knowledge Area” Choose a knowledge area on which you scored the lowest to work on this week. (Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat)

Step 2. Once you’ve chosen the subject, research and work up a common chief complaint from that system that you haven’t learned already in the program and present your findings in the discussion threads. Push yourself to explore diagnoses in this area that are still common to primary care, but not a repeat of content learned in this or other courses.

Step 3. Respond to at least one other student’s CC work up as well as any questions posed to you by faculty.

Work up includes:

Chief complaint, PMHx, Demographics, PSHx, allergies, lifestyle, HPI

Associated risk factors/demographics that contribute to the chief complaint and differential diagnoses

Three common differential diagnoses represented by the CC including pathophysiology and rationale in the identified body system i.e., if pulmonary was your body system than a chief complaint could be persistent cough and three pulmonary differentials;

Discuss how the three differential diagnoses differ from each other in: occurrence, pathophysiology and presentation (NOTE: Simply listing the diagnoses and their occurrence, pathophysiology and presentations separately does not confer an understanding of how they differ. Your discussion should compare and contrast these items against each other among the three differentials chosen);

Relevant testing required to diagnose/evaluate severity of the three differential diagnoses; and

Review of relevant National Guidelines related to the Diagnosis and Diagnostic testing for these diagnoses

Respond to at least one Student’s CC write up and all faculty questions posed directly to you.

the healthcare organization,

March 21, 2010, was not Evidence Based Practice’s date of birth, but it may be the date the approach “grew up” and left home to take on the world.When the Affordable Care Act was passed, it came with a requirement of empirical evidence. Research on EBP increased significantly. Application of EBP spread to allied health professions, education, healthcare technology, and more. Health organizations began to adopt and promote EBP.In this Discussion, you will consider this adoption. You will examine healthcare organization websites and analyze to what extent these organizations use EBP.To Prepare:

Review the Resources and reflect on the definition and goal of EBP.
Choose a professional healthcare organization’s website (e.g., a reimbursing body, an accredited body, or a national initiative).
Explore the website to determine where and to what extent EBP is evident.
By Day 3 of Week 1
Post a description of the healthcare organization website you reviewed. Describe where, if at all, Evidence Based Practice (EBP) appears (e.g., the mission, vision, philosophy, and/or goals of the healthcare organization, or in other locations on the website). Then, explain whether this healthcare organization’s work is grounded in EBP and why or why not. Finally, explain whether the information you discovered on the healthcare organization’s website has changed your perception of the healthcare organization. Be specific and provide examples.
