When patients in acute care settings present with psychosocial health conditions, advanced practice nurses are responsible for stabilizing them, making diagnoses, establishing treatment regimens, and transitioning patients to outpatient and community-based services. Advanced practice nurses must also maintain the safety, dignity, and confidentiality of all patients while coordinating care with the multidisciplinary care team. For this Assignment, as you examine this weekâ€™s i-Human patient case study, consider how you might evaluate and treat patients presenting with psychosocial health conditions.
As you interact with this weekâ€™s i-Human patient, complete the assigned case study. For guidance on using i-Human, refer to thei-Human Patients Case Player Student Manualin the Week 1 Learning Resources.
