You are to obtain a family genetic history on a willing, nonrelated, adult participant. NOTE: failing to complete this assignment using an adult participant other than yourself will result in a 20% penalty deduction being applied.

Course Outcomes

This assignment enables the student to meet the following Course Outcomes.

CO3: Utilize effective communication when performing a health assessment. (PO3)

CO5: Explore the professional responsibilities involved in conducting a comprehensive health assessment and providing appropriate documentation. (PO6)

Points

This assignment is worth a total of 150 points.

Due Date

The Family Genetic History Assignment is to be submitted at the end of Week 2.

Disclaimer

When taking a family genetic history on an actual client, it is essential that the information is accurate. Please inform the person you are interviewing that they do not need to disclose information that they wish to keep confidential. If the adult participant decides not to share information, please write, “Does not want to disclose.” If the client fails to disclose answers to several items, you will need to find another client who is willing to share.

You are required to use the assignment specific item(s) (article/systematic review/topic/form/templates) or you will earn a “0” for the assignment. In addition, assignments that do not follow the current guidelines or use the required item, as defined above, will be evaluated for evidence of an academic integrity violation.

After the due date, there will be no opportunity for revision or resubmission of assignments that have been uploaded to the submission area. This includes blank, incomplete, incorrect file, and/or incorrect file format documents. It is your responsibility to submit the correct completed assignment in the correct format to the correct submission area. Your last submission before the due date will be graded. You may not resubmit after the due date with a different file and incur a late deduction per the Late Assignment policy.

Directions

Refer to the examples in Chapter 4 of your textbook that discuss development of a genogram.

Download the required NR305_Family_Genetic_History_Form (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. You will document the adult participant’s family genetic history using this MS Word document.

Complete the family genetic history using the information that the adult participant is willing to share with you. The focus of this course is on the normal healthy individual so your paper does not need to contain much medical/nursing detail. Refer to your textbook or the Internet to learn what impact the family’s health history may have on the adult participant’s personal state of wellness both now and in the future. This paper does not require APA formatting, but you are expected to write clearly and use proper grammar and spelling. Developing a pictorial genogram using symbols to identify certain relationships (e.g., divorced, sibling, deceased, etc.), may provide more insight, however, drawing may be difficult to accomplish with MS Word, therefore you are not expected to use symbols, lines, or other drawing elements. Instead, describe the relationships among the various people in the adult participant’s family’s genetic history. Remember, the goal is not to learn how to draw with Word, but to gather information about the family and recognize its significance to the adult participant and that person’s health.

You are required to complete the form using the productivity tools required by Chamberlain University, which is Microsoft Office Word 2013 (or later version), or Windows and Office 2011 (or later version) for MAC.

Find an adult who is not related to you who is willing to let you take a health history.

Download the required NR305_Milestone1_Form (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. You will type your answers directly into this Word document.

Avoid words like frequently, improved, increased, decreased, good, poor, normal, or WNL as they may have different meanings for different people. Instead, document the specific data that led you to these conclusions, for example, 3x/day instead of frequently, or consuming four servings of vegetables/day instead of increased vegetable servings.

Content Guidelines

Using the information gathered in your Genetic Family History and Milestone 1 assignments, you will identify and research one modifiable risk factor. You will develop an evidence-based teaching plan that promotes health, with the aim of improving patient outcomes related to this modifiable risk factor.

Introduction (1 paragraph): The introduction should be interesting and capture the reader’s attention.

State one preventable disease your adult participant is at risk for developing (obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, etc.), based on the information you have gathered during this course.

Introduce one modifiable risk factor (diet, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, etc.) associated with the preventable disease you described.

Clearly state the purpose of your paper. The purpose statement should relate to developing a patient teaching plan.

Preventable Disease Overview (1-2 paragraphs): Please use course materials and scholarly sources to complete this section. Be sure to paraphrase and include citations as needed!

Describe briefly the preventable disease you identified in the introduction.

What are the signs and symptoms associated with this disease?

How is it diagnosed? Notable information from Health History and General Survey? Signs and symptoms? Risk assessments? Lab values?

What physical assessment findings would be associated with this disease?

How did you identify your adult participant’s risk for this disease?

Specific information gathered in the Genetic Family History?

Specific information gathered in the Milestone 1 assignment?

Evidence Based Intervention (1-2 paragraphs):

Choose and describe one evidence based intervention related to the modifiable risk factor you have chosen. (One that has been shown to be effective at reducing an individual’s risk for developing the preventable disease.)

Describe this intervention in detail, and provide rationale for your intervention utilizing:

At least one scholarly peer-reviewed journal article. Go to the Chamberlain library at http:/library.chamberlain.edu (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Search peer reviewed journals to find a scholarly article that discusses interventions associated with the modifiable risk factor you have chosen as the focus of your paper. Summarize what you learned from this article and cite the source in the text and reference page (Author, year). The article must be less than 10 years old. You may include and cite your textbook or other scholarly sources as well, but they do not count as the scholarly journal article.

You must summarize and analyze the information from your sources in your own words. Avoid direct quotations. If you do include a short quotation, be sure to cite it properly.

List short and long term goals you have for your participant related to this intervention.

Implementation: Teaching Plan (1-2 paragraphs):

Discuss in this section what methods you will use to teach your participant how to implement the intervention.

What is it that you are asking them to do? (For example, if your intervention is “quit smoking”, what specific steps will you recommend your participant take to achieve this goal?)

Describe any resources you would provide to the participant to help them understand and be successful (websites, community services, handouts, etc.).

Evaluation (1 paragraph):

Describe at least one method (weight, lab values, etc.) you would use to evaluate whether your intervention was effective.

How would you revise you plan if it proved to be unsuccessful?

Summary (1 paragraph):

Summarize the main points of your paper.

Reiterate what you hope to accomplish by implementing this intervention.

End with a concluding statement.

Reference Page:

The Reference Page should start on a new page (insert a page break).

All references should be cited within the body of the paper as (Author, year) and the full reference should be included in APA format on the reference page.

A URL link alone is not an adequate reference.

See the Chamberlain Guidelines for Writing Professional Papers in Course Resources for examples of properly formatted references.

Best Practices – Tips for Writing a Great Paper!

Review the directions, guidelines, and grading rubric thoroughly.

Use the APA template provided.

Be clear. Write about one preventable disease, one modifiable risk factor, and one related intervention.

Proofread prior to final submission. Having another person review your work is often helpful to catch grammar and spelling errors. (Spell check is not perfect!)
