You have a patient present to the clinic for heart palpitations. She has a history of hyperthyroid disease. While talking to the patient you discover that she is not sleeping well and does not want to leave her home. You discuss a diagnosis of anxiety with the patient, but she and her husband are resistant to a mental health diagnosis. How would you discuss this with the patient and family to assist the patient in getting the care that she needs?
DISCUSSION BOARD LEARNING ASSIGNMENTS
Over the duration of the course, students will be assigned four discussion board assignments. Each student will choose and respond to ONE question and review and comment on TWO answers by classmates in the “Discussion Board” section of blackboard using research evidence to support your source of the information. If you do this on a timely basis (i.e., when you are studying the topic), it will be helpful to both you and your classmates.
The assignment will be posted on the discussion board and students should actively discuss the chosen topic by posing questions or making additional comments based on current evidence-based literature. Initial post by Wednesday 23:59, reply to peers by Friday 23:59, and additional replies as appropriate by Saturday 23:59. Initial discussion post word count should be no more than 500 words;reply posts should be no more than 350 words. Students will be unable to see student posts until they have submitted their initial post for each discussion board. For grading criteria, see Discussion Board Participation Rubric.
