Directions

Review the clinician provider guidelines and recommendations of the United States Preventive Services Task Force A and B Recommendations. https://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Name/uspstf-a-and-b-recommendations/

For the MSN prepared nurse, knowledge of epidemiology and its application to preventive screening guidelines is important in many clinical areas: administrative, education, and nurse practitioner fields. Consider you are working in a clinic and need to order a preventive screening on a patient for one of the conditions listed below. (While this is a preventative measure, it also can be a diagnostic tool in other circumstances. For this Assignment the screening is a secondary prevention measure.)

Please select one screening. Your screening methodology must come from the United States Preventive Services Task Force guidelines.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
Breast Cancer
Cervical Cancer
Colon Cancer
Diabetes Mellitus II
Lung Cancer
Find the Final Recommendation Summary for the screening you are evaluating. Explain the guideline, the correct application of the screening, and the epidemiology behind the guidance. Content should include epidemiologic data such as statistical information as available ex. morbidity, mortality, incidence and prevalence of condition. Identify the methodology and measures for screening. Include the risk factors, risk assessment, testing interval, description of the patient population,screening test recommendations and other factors relative to the guideline. Discuss the guideline’s support in a critical analysis, based on the outcomes of studies used in the screening guidance publication. What key factors are supported by evidence, such as age, methods, measures and intervals? Consider using the rubric sections as level one headings within the paper.

Master’s-prepared nurse educators, leaders, nurse practitioners and all specialty nursing fields are contributors to health promotion in populations across the life span. You will demonstrate understanding and correct interpretations of preventive screening guidelines. You should be able to apply this knowledge to your specialty focus as it relates to health promotion and epidemiology.

This paper should be 3–4 pages, excluding your title page, and references. This paper should adhere to appropriate APA formatting and citation style.
