NU606 Advanced Pathophysiology
Week 11 Discussion
Problem-Based Learning Case
Using the Week 11 Discussion: Choice Question, choose your topic for this week’s discussion. You may use the textbook as one reference as well as the learning materials posted within the course. However, additional references should be scholarly based and be a new source that you are introducing to your peers.
Research and present the pathophysiology of the chosen disorder in a clear, well referenced manner.
Your initial post should also include the following:
The most common presenting symptoms
The manner in which your disorder is routinely diagnosed
A standard treatment plan
Link(s) to routine screening and treatment guidelines
If national screening and treatment guidelines do not exist for your disorder, choose a set of guidelines related to disorders that have been discussed in previous weeks. This is a great way for everyone to build a library of guidelines to help with their academic journey.
There is an abundance of information available on these disorders; in your research, look for the nuggets of information that are not common knowledge, or something specific that surprised you when you were researching your topic.
