the principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
To Prepare
  • Review the Resources for this module and consider the principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
  • Reflect on your experiences, observations, and/or clinical practices from the last 5 years and think about how pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic factors altered his or her anticipated response to a drug.
  • Consider factors that might have influenced the patient’s pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes, such as genetics (including pharmacogenetics), gender, ethnicity, age, behavior, and/or possible pathophysiological changes due to disease.
  • Think about a personalized plan of care based on these influencing factors and patient history in your case study.
By Day 3 of Week 1

Post a description of the patient case from your experiences, observations, and/or clinical practice from the last 5 years. Then, describe factors that might have influenced pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes of the patient you identified. Finally, explain details of the personalized plan of care that you would develop based on influencing factors and patient history in your case. Be specific and provide examples

Disparity Reduction Plan

work 3.5Create a disparity reduction plan that you could present to both physicians and the hospital administration in your community that focuses on both a specific disparity and demographic(s) affected by that disparity.Using the problem-solving methodology, you will:

  • identify the problem,
  • discuss the population most affected,
  • indicate the root cause of the problem,
  • suggest a possible solution to the problem, and
  • surmise positive outcomes from this solution based on it being used in other areas.

Use data to support your answer. Present your findings to the physicians and hospital admin in the form of a PowerPoint presentation. Your presentation should consist of at least eight slides, not counting the title and references slides.PowerPoint Requirements:

  • All graphics must be clear.
  • All graphics must be cited.
  • Include;
  • at least four photos.
  • at least one graphic.
  • notes so that the information on the slide contains simple bulleted phrasesand the notes expand on those bullets with complete sentences – as if you would use them in an oral presentation to the physicians and hospital administration.

Pediatric Health Promotion Plan

A family just migrated from another country to your area and you are seeing them in the clinic for the first time. They do not speak English well. There are two children, ages 2 years 6 months and 6 years. When taking the children’s history, you become aware they have not seen a provider in two years. Utilizing the Health Promotion Guide available in the course and the CHC vaccination schedule, develop a treatment plan to include vaccinations, safety, health promotion and wellness preservation for these children. Provide rationale for recommendations from sources such as the CDC.

Length: 1500 words
Format: APA

the Asian culture

In the Asian culture, there is often a belief that terminally ill patients should not be informed about their prognosis. Would you respect the cultural practice and not inform a patient about the prognosis? Is there a way for health care providers to balance the patient’s right to know with respect for the cultural practices and beliefs of the family? Is not fully disclosing information to the patient an ethical breach?

pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics processes of a patient

Analyze factors that may influence pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics processes of a patient and assess the details of a personalized plan of care that you develop based on influencing factors and patient history. You will also evaluate and analyze ethical and legal implications and practices related to prescribing drugs, including disclosure and nondisclosure, and analyze the process of writing prescriptions to avoid medication errors.

There are several readings and media that you will cover this week. You have a discussion that is due this week (Wednesday), and final posts are due by day 6 (Saturday). You also have a Assignment to complete this week.

The Topic for this weeks assignments is:

· You see another nurse practitioner writing a prescription for her husband, who is not a patient of the nurse practitioner. The prescription is for a narcotic. You can’t decide whether or not to report the incident.


This IS mandatory repot

health history interview

According to a 2011 Gallup poll, nurses are ranked as the most trusted professionals in the United States. One of the most admired nursing skills is the ability to put patients at ease. When patients enter into a healthcare setting, they are often apprehensive about sharing personal health information. Caring nurses can alleviate the hesitance of patients and encourage them to be forthcoming with this information.

The initial health history interview can be an excellent opportunity to develop supportive relationships between patients and nurses. Nurses may employ a variety of communication skills and interview techniques to foster strong bonds with patients. And to effectively facilitate the diagnostic process. In conducting interviews, advanced practice nurses must also take into account a range of patient-specific factors that may impact the questions they ask, how they ask those questions, and their complete assessment of the patient’s health.

This week, you will consider how social determinants of health such as age, gender, ethnicity, and environmental situation impact the health and risk assessment of the patients you serve. You will also consider how social determinants of health influence your interview and communication techniques as you work in partnership with a patient to gather data to build an accurate health history.

The Global Burden of Disease Study

“The Global Burden of Disease Study” is conducted by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation and published in The Lancet journal. It captures and analyzes data on many major causes of mortality and morbidity from almost every country. The study allows researchers and practices to compare countries. And also help individual countries prioritize major health issues and risk factors with available resources. Review the background of the study by exploring the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation website as well as the various Global Burden of Disease (GBD) reports found in The Lancet journal. Create a PowerPoint presentation (five to seven slides, not including your title or references slide. That addresses one of the top five causes of mortality and morbidity from the Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD). Select the health issue based on a specific country of interest and include the following in your presentation

  1. Evidence and statistics supporting it as a major health issue. Such as the Disability Adjusted Life Years or other measures of mortality and morbidity. Indicate which country you selected.

2.   Four major risk factors related to the health issue.

3.   Potential gaps or limitations in the data

4.   Three social or economic opportunities to control or reduce the prevalence of this issue (reference the connection to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals).

5. Points of interest regarding this leading cause of mortality and morbidity related to the country you selected.
