This week, you will consider how evidence-based practice guidelines and ethical considerations factor into health assessments. You will also evaluate health assessment concepts related to sports physicals and well-child and well-woman examinations.
CASE STUDY 2 (Students in Group B)
A single father has accompanied his 17-year-old daughter to a women’s health clinic and has requested that his daughter has a pregnancy test. The girl has not consented to the test and seems uneasy.
Review the scenarios provided by your instructor for this week’s Assignment. Based on the scenarios provided:
- What necessary information would need to be obtained about the patient through health assessments and diagnostic tests?
- Consider how you would respond as an advanced practice nurse. Review evidence-based practice guidelines and ethical considerations applicable to the scenarios you selected.
Write a detailed one-page narrative (not a formal paper) explaining the health assessment information required for a diagnosis of your selected patient (include the scenario number). Explain how you would respond to the scenario as an advanced practice nurse using evidence-based practice guidelines and applying ethical considerations.
Justify your response using at least three different references from current evidence-based literature.
