Musculoskeletal System Diagnosis
Mrs. Joy Vinton has just been diagnosed with a Muscular Skeletal system disease or condition. Pick one disease or condition of the Musculoskeletal system to research. Next, you will be composing a professional educational piece for Mrs. Joy Vinton and her family to understand about the disease. You need to write an explanation of that disease including the signs and symptoms, diagnostics and/or labs that were performed, treatment for the disease from this point forward, and the prognosis.
Guided response: As a health care professional, you need to be able to answer all of the questions a patient may have about a disease or condition as well as what they may experience on a daily basis. For instance, our activities of daily living (ADLs) include some of the following: taking a bath, eating, walking, driving, grocery shopping, toileting, etc. It is our responsibility to help patients and their family cope with the disease and its effects. This is the reason why it is important to be prepared for any questions, listen attentively, identify problems the family may be experiencing with the news, and be able to take appropriate action related to assisting the physician or nurse practitioner with problem solving for the family.
Therefore, for your participation responses you need to choose two classmates and respond by asking them for information that you would want to know but they did not cover in their original post and include a problem that you are experiencing related to performing your activities of daily living. Your response should be around 75 words.
Note: It is important to respond to a student if they post to you. Other students can post answers as well.
Please review the Discussion Board grading rubric on your Syllabus to understand how your posts will be evaluated. Your posts should be qualitative and provide substantive depth that advances the Discussion. You may view the Student Guide to Online Communication located in the Academic Tools tab above for additional information.
Initial Discussion responses should be around 150 words. Responses to your classmates or instructor should be around 75 words.
