You are a new graduate nurse caring for a patient that received a positive result from a genetic or genomic testing technology. Part of your role as a general nurse in genetic and genomic care is to provide accurate information, ensure appropriate patient referral, and serve as a patient advocate.

Develop a plan of care that identifies nursing strategies that incorporate genetic and genomic risk factors, three interprofessional resources, and three referral resources for a client that has a positive result from a genetic or genomic testing technology that you explain.

Your plan of care will be presented in a Word document that includes the following sections:
Explanation a specific genetic or genomic testing technology
Describe what positive results of the testing technology indicates
Design a plan of nursing care strategies based on positive results
Describe three interprofessional resources in planning care for clients with genetic and genomic needs
Determine three resources for facilitation of genetic and genomic referrals

development of psychopathology

Factors that influence the development of psychopathology.

Explain the biological (genetic and neuroscientific); psychological (behavioral and cognitive processes, emotional, developmental); and social, cultural, and interpersonal factors that influence the development of psychopathology.

Health care facilities

                          Health care facilities

  1. Health care facilities have uniquely defined characteristics based on the needs of the facility or population served. Poor design may lead to staff, visitor, or patient stress. In large facilities, the inability to find a department may lead to frustrations and disorientation. Poor layout may also lead to staff inefficiencies or fines because of failure to meet regulatory requirements.Throughout this course you will design a floor plan for the facility you select in this assignment. This assignment illustrates the difficult balances between patient flow, workflow, safety, and aesthetics. You will use this document as a guide to understand the environmental design elements you should include in your final design.

    Complete the Week 2 section of the Facility Planning Template.
    Cite at least 2 peer-reviewed, scholarly, or similar references.
    Format your assignment according to APA guidelines.

 Hospital informatics

 Hospital informatics

Identify a hospital where you work, have completed clinical rotations, or support your local community. Go to a website (options are listed below, but the list is certainly not all-inclusive) and compare the outcomes measures of that hospital with two other hospitals (can be local, regional, or national). Choose these Hospitals: Sentara Norfolk General, Chesapeake Regional Medical Center, and Sentara Obici

Build a chart or table that compares the data at the three facilities on each of the following four measures:

  1. Surgical      care improvement / surgical infection prevention (pick a sub-section that      interests you)
  2. HCAHPS      (patient satisfaction)
  3. Pneumonia
  4. ED      wait times

Summarize the findings of the charts in a narrative. Why is benchmarking done? What did you learn? Develop a plan for improvement in one area where a hospital is below the state and / or national average. The submission should include a 3–4-page narrative and the charts in an appendix.

This assignment should be submitted using APA 7th format including a title and reference page.

A plan of care

Smoking and alcohol abuse

Your patient is a 52-year-old male with a history of smoking and alcohol abuse. He presents to the ED with complaints of “my skin looks yellow, my stomach hurts, and I feel nauseous”. He is taken to CT and a tumor near the pancreas is observed. It appears to be blocking the common bile duct. Develop a plan of care for the patient. Use the attached concept mapUse references and each box must have an in-text citation

Clinical practice guidelines

Clinical practice guidelines

Reflect on the course objectives, clinical practice guidelines, the three to five clinical objectives, and your plan to incorporate clinical practice guidelines for your clinical/practicum experience that you developed earlier in the course.

In 250-500 words, summarize the objectives you met during your clinical/practicum experience and discuss your incorporation of the course objectives and clinical practice guidelines. Provide specific examples to justify and illustrate your experiences.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.
