ORDER NOW FOR AN EXCELLENT PAPER FROM HEALTH CARE PAPER GURUS: Health Care Strategies for Oncological Disorders Project Discussion

Question Description
I’m working on a Health & Medical exercise and need support.

part 1..Written Assignment- Nursing care of a Cancer patient

Competence
Explain principles of care for clients with oncological disorders.

Scenario
Anna is a 45-year-old female that presented to her physician’s office for her annual check-up. Anna has a history of diabetes, obesity, and noncompliance with diet and medications to control her diabetes. She a single mother of three teenagers and smokes regularly. During the history review, Anna shares with you that she has not been feeling like herself for the past six months, she has been unusually tired and thought that she felt a lump in her right breast during a self-breast exam around that same time. She stated, “I am very busy with my children; I haven’t had time to get it checked out.” She has recently been experiencing right nipple pain. Anna has a positive family history of breast cancer; both her mother and grandmother have been treated for breast cancer. Anna has never had a mammogram. During the breast examination, the practitioner palpated a lump in Anna’s right breast. No discharge from the nipple was observed. Anna’s right breast was tender upon palpation. No abnormalities were found in the left breast. Based on the physical findings Anna will undergo a diagnostic mammogram.

Instructions
In a 2-page paper, describe the care that Anna would require and address the questions below.

What risk factors does Anna have that could predispose her to the development of cancer?
What signs and symptoms could indicate that Anna has developed cancer?
Based on Anna’s risk factors and presenting problems, identify three care strategies that you would use to provide quality care to Anna. Provide rationale to explain why you chose these strategies.
PART 2; Multidimensional Care of the Cancer Patients

Discussion

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in both men and women. Caring for the cancer patient and family requires a multidimensional approach.

What does it mean to provide a multidimensional approach? What are some examples of how the care team can meet the patient and the family’s needs? Who are the members of the care team and how are they involved in providing multidimensional care

PART 3; WRITTEN ASSIGHNMENT-ACID-BASE IMBALANCE

Competency
Describe strategies for safe, effective multidimensional nursing care for clients with acid-base imbalances.

Scenario
Tony is a 56-year-old, Hispanic male that presented to the Emergency Room with complaints of shortness of breath, which he has been experiencing for the past two days. He states “I haven’t felt good for about a week, but couldn’t afford to miss work.” He complains of a cough, fever, and feeling exhausted. Past medical history includes asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes. Upon physical examination, you notice that Tony is struggling to breathe, his respiratory rate is 36 breaths per minute and labored, heart rate 115 beats per minute, blood pressure 90/40 mm Hg, and his pulse oximetry is 84% on room air. You notify the MD. He orders oxygen at 4 L via NC and an arterial blood gas.

Tony’s ABG results:

pH 7.28
PaCO2 – 55 mm Hg
PaO2 – 70 mm Hg
HCO3 – 30 mEq/L

Instructions
In a 1-2 page Word document:

Determine Tony’s acid-base imbalance
Describe possible causes of the imbalance
Identify the signs and symptoms that Tony is exhibiting as a result of the acid-base imbalance
List the multidimensional care strategies that are appropriate for the care of Tony
PART 4; DISCUSSION -MULTIDIMENSIONAL CARE OF SARA

Sarah is a 69-year old female that presented to the emergency department with shortness of breath. Her past medical history includes heart failure and COPD. Her pulse oximetry on room air is 82%. You notify the provider, and he orders oxygen at 4 L via nasal canula NC. Sarah’s chest x-ray reveals bilateral pneumonia. Her arterial blood gas result are below:

pH

7.30

PaCO2

58 mm Hg

PaO2

78 mm Hg

HCO3

26 mEq/L

Sarah is admitted to a general medical floor. You are the nurse assigned to Sarah.

What potential problems can occur based on the above findings?
How would you provide multidimensional care for Sarah?
Describe the roles of other departments in Sarah’s treatment plan
PART 5. ASSIGNMENT- DIGESTIVE POSTER

Competency

Select appropriate nursing interventions for clients with lower gastrointestinal disorders.

Scenario
Patient and family education is important in increasing adherence. To provide education to patient and families, you are going to create a poster about a gastrointestinal disorder that will be displayed in a physician’s office.

Instructions
Please be sure to include the following in your poster design.

Overview of the disorder
Causes of the disorder
Diagnostic tests to diagnosis the disorder
Assessment findings
Multidimensional nursing care interventions for the disorder
PART 6; ASSIGNMENT -ENDOCRINE DISORDERS CUIDE

Competency
Evaluate responses to nursing interventions for clients with endocrine disorders.

Scenario
You are working as a nurse supervisor. You are finding a lot of new nurses are unfamiliar with certain endocrine disorders. You have decided to put together a guide for these nurses to educate them on different endocrine diseases and provide them with ways to provide quality multidimensional care.

Instructions
Compare and contrast two endocrine disorders within the guide. Include the following information:

Identify and compare the causes and diagnostic tests.
Identify and compare the signs and symptoms of the disorder.
Describe the nurses’ role in caring for a patient that suffers from this disorder to include the multidimensional aspects of nursing care.
Identify how you will evaluate responses to the interventions taken for each disorder
part 7.discussion- Influence of Multidimensional Care Elements on Disorders

Disorders of the endocrine system affect many individuals. Providing multidimensional patient care can be challenging for patients experiencing these disorders. Ensuring the plan of care meets the patient and family needs is important in order to increase adherence to proper medical treatment following discharge.

What does it mean to provide a multidimensional approach? Provide at least three examples of how the care team can meet the patient and the family’s needs? List at least three care team members and how are they involved in providing multidimensional care?

PART8; REFLECTION

Initial Post

Describe how you achieved each course competency including at least one example of new knowledge gained related to that competency.

Describe how this new knowledge will impact your nursing practice.

Course Competencies

Explain principles of care for clients with oncological disorders.
Identify components of safe and effective nursing care for clients experiencing fluid and electrolyte imbalances.
Describe strategies for safe, effective multidimensional nursing care for clients with acid-base imbalances.
Select appropriate nursing interventions for clients with upper gastrointestinal disorders.
Select appropriate nursing interventions for clients with lower gastrointestinal disorders.
Evaluate responses to nursing interventions for clients with endocrine disorders.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
