Create a medication monitoring grid for ALL medications in your plan that are related to the chronic disease we are discussing even if there are no implemented changes for drugs the patient was on prior to your workup.

Review the case study and perform an analysis. You will follow the example and case study to complete your analysis of the disease process. You will present your plan based on the presented case information. Each analysis must use at least 2 sources (including national guidelines) to support information.
The Case Study Analysis Assignment must be completed in Microsoft Word and conform to proper current APA format. You are required to write a minimum of 5 pages for each analysis and critique. To ensure consistency and quality of effort, reference and follow the examples provided. Typically, a well-done analysis will be 8-15 pages.
The diabetes case study outlines the only information provided to you as the clinician, from this you will be writing a case study analysis. Follow the example template in The attachments. Lists/bulleted points are sufficient in most sections rather than paragraphs. Full sentences are appropriate when discussing your rationale for assessment/evaluation of the patient and when discussing the rationale for drug therapy selection. Explore and apply the evidence-based diabetes treatment guidelines in your course readings. I prefer the American Diabetes Association Standards of Care as they are updated annually with current evidence – these are published in January of each year.
Tips for Writing a Case AnalysisReview the grading rubrics before submitting assignment.Succinctly state the pathophysiologic condition (i.e. signs and symptoms, diagnosis) that is currently under medical treatment or requires medical intervention.Each section of the case analysis must be addressed. Don’t assume anything. If you don’t state what you are thinking, I will not be able to give you credit.The Evaluation section is your assessment of the problem. Incorporate guidelines to discuss how the disease is diagnosed and how well controlled it is in this patient.Provide the rationale for each of your clinical and therapeutic recommendations. It is NOT enough to simply state that you want to start or adjust Drug X and end the discussion. I want to know why you chose Drug X versus Drug Y and provide your reasons. Even if I disagree with your choices, if the provided rationale is well stated and evidence-based, you may still receive up to full credit for the specific intervention. Providing insight into your decisions may include citing specific evidenced based literature, personal experience/observation, explanation of a drug mechanism of action, side effects/tolerability, time to onset of action etc.Create a medication monitoring grid for ALL medications in your plan that are related to the chronic disease we are discussing even if there are no implemented changes for drugs the patient was on prior to your workup. If you are suggesting a patient start/continue a medication in your plan, please include a monitoring grid for it. E = effects (how you will monitor or know the medication is working), AE = adverse effects
