NUR265 Formal Care Plan Pathophysiology Paper
Nursing care across the generations differs depending on the age and developmental stage of your patient. Developmental stages dictate what is appropriate regardless of the disease. No 2 patients are alike for example: an adult with pneumonia or renal failure will require different interventions than a 9 month old baby. The interventions often are also caregiver specific. Ask yourself, “who is going to take care of this patient after discharge, what is the caregiver level of education, development” What you teach a college educated parent/caregiver is vastly different from what you are going to teach a 65yr. old who has an high school grade education.
The purpose of the paper is to identify the disease process, with pathophysiology, risk factors, outcomes and developmentally age appropriate teaching for the patient /family or caregiver. Your paper must also identify the 4 priority nursing diagnosis’ for your specific patient. No abstract is required for this paper.
