Instructions

To complete this Assessment:

Review the scenario.
Complete a fact sheet for a genetic-based health issue.
Complete your responses to the two questions related to the genetic-based health issue.
Scenario:

You are a nurse who treats patients that have many different genetic health issues. At your last staff meeting, your nursing supervisor asked each nurse to develop an educational fact sheet for a genetic-based health issue that you encounter in your day-to-day practice, as well as to respond to some questions related to the genetic-based health issue. You will select a genetic-based health issue, create a fact sheet for the genetic-based health issue you selected, and provide a written response related to the genetic-based health issue you selected.

This assessment has two-parts.

Part 1: Fact Sheet
Create a 1- to 2-page patient education fact sheet for a genetic-based health issue that addresses the following:

1- Provide a brief history of the genetic-based health issue you selected, including a description of the genetic-based health issue.
2- Analyze statistical information on the genetic-based health issue you selected.
** Be sure to support the statistical information on the genetic-based health issue you selected with evidence from at least three additional scholarly resources.
3- Summarize the characteristic signs and symptoms associated with the genetic-based health issue you selected.
4- Explain how patients are screened, diagnosed, and treated for the genetic-based health issue you selected.
* Describe patient screening and diagnoses related to the genetic-based health issue.
* Explain any medications that may be used to treat the genetic-based health issue.
5- Explain whether pharmacogenomics are being used to treat the genetic-based health issue, or whether research in pharmacogenomics is being conducted for this genetic-based health issue by providing two examples.

When developing your patient education fact sheet, keep in mind that the fact sheet should be visually appealing and appropriate for your patient audience. The patient education fact sheet should be formatted for easy reading, including the use of bullet points and short sentences. Be sure to include at least three scholarly resources in the creation of your patient education fact sheet in addition to the resources for this competency.

Part 2: Written Response to Fact Sheet

Provide a 1-page written response that addresses the following related to your patient education fact sheet:

1- Explain the nurse’s role in advocating for the patient diagnosed with the genetic-based health issue you selected for your fact sheet.
2- Explain the ethical considerations you should be prepared to address with your patients as they consider information presented in the fact sheet.
A- Support these considerations with evidence from at least three scholarly resources in addition to the resources for this competency.
