Health and Chronic Disease Management - NUR 427


The following free examples are provided to give students real life examples of research papers and presentations. Review these examples in their entirety and begin writing your own today.

Health and Chronic Disease Management NUR 427

Your previous BSN classes added new knowledge and reinforced previously learned concepts about professional nursing.

You will increase your understanding of how to motivate and effectively teach patients about their chronic disease processes. In Week One, you will review the physiology of the endocrine and psychoneurological systems and integrate those concepts while developing strategies for patient education. You will review Bloom’s taxonomy and incorporate that language when you write your patient education objectives. These educational objectives are for teaching-learning activities for your patients.

You will learn about the motivational and learning principles involved in the education of patients throughout their lifespan—childhood through old age— and patients of different cultural backgrounds. The learning needs, preferences, and methods will change, and so too must your strategies to meet people’s diverse needs. NUR 427 Health and Chronic Disease Management papers and presentations due:

Diabetes Case Study (Full Sample Paper) -Write a 700 to 1,050- word, APA-formatted paper on the given case study, incorporating the following information:

  • An overview of the incidence of diabetes in the United States
  • The typical presenting signs
  • The potential effects of diabetes on the body as a chronic process
  • The teaching requirements with measurable objectives
  • The psycho-social challenges that patients like Mr. D. may have
  • Include an introduction and a summary, as well as at least five references

Week Two in Health and Chronic Disease Management

The focus for this week is on some of the most frequently seen chronic disease processes of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. You will build on the knowledge you gained in Week One about Bloom’s taxonomy and the language used in phrasing learning objectives and move on to discuss evaluating your educational efforts for patients.

Disease Process Table

  • Choose three conditions
  • Fill out the signs and symptoms
  • In place of the diagnostic tests, list a conventional and a complementary or alternative therapy that is currently being used
  • In place of the treatment plan, cite a community resource and one educational need that a patient might require. The following are some community resources examples
  1. Government website
  2. Associations or professional organizations
  3. Societies
  4. Nonprofit organizations

Week Three in Health and Chronic Disease Management

Week Three of the course focuses on chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems (GI/GU). You will be using the principles of learning and motivation to create a comprehensive educational plan for a patient with a disorder related to the GI/GU systems.

Patient Education Plan - Select a gastrointestinal, genitourinary, or reproductive disease as the chronic focus. Create a patient educational plan that incorporates the following:

  • Patient Description
  • Age
  • Gender
  • Social, family, and medical history as it relates to the disease process chosen
  • Educational background
  • Preferred method of learning
  • Needs assessment
  • An introduction to the disease process
  • Age and developmental issues
  • Effect on quality of life
  • The educational needs of the patient, and plan on how they can be met
  • The patient’s perceived challenges
  • A summary of the process
  • At least five references

Week Four

This week, you will incorporate your understanding of cultural differences and how to implement those concepts in formulating effective educational plans for patients with diseases of the immunologic system and malignant processes. By individualizing your educational plans, you increase the likelihood of success in building interpersonal teaching-learning relationships with your patients.

Educational Brochure

Asthma is a chronic disease that makes it hard to breathe. Air is carried into the lungs by airways. Asthma makes the airways swell and close up, which makes it feel like air cannot get into the lungs; therefore making it hard to breathe. A sudden spurt of not being able to breathe after running or breathing a strong perfume is an asthma attack. Using your asthma medication inhaler can prevent these attacks, and help breathing to become normal after an attack.

Week Five (Last week in Health and Chronic Disease Management)

Watson’s carative factors have been covered in your previous classes, and now in NUR/427 you are focusing on interpersonal teaching learning experiences for patients with chronic diseases. This week will help you establish an understanding of how Watson’s theory of human caring is an integral part of your teaching learning experiences.

Health and Chronic Disease Management Presentation

A big concern for specific socio cultural needs is education on how to get tested. There is concern that the general public is afraid of being stigmatized as having AIDS if tested. The need for education on why and how to get tested for HIV is predominate across the races. The need for education is the number one specific socio-cultural need. Secrecy is the key to successful HIV/AIDS testing (PubMed, 2010).
