What are the main clinical manifestations of this condition that you might expect to see in a primary care office

Discussion Forum Week 1 Common Conditions Seen in Primary Care Morbidity and Mortality in the United States Value: 5 Percentage Points toward total grade Part 1 Due Date: Wednesday, Week 1 no later than 11:59PM ET. Part 2 (Response) due date: No later than 11:59PM ET Sunday, Week 1. Discussion Forum Notes: There are some key terms and definitions that you will need for this discussion forum, for this course and other courses in the MSN FNP program. Etiology: From the Merriam-Webster online dictionary (n.d.), “The cause or origin of a disease or an abnormal disorder. Epidemiology- “Epidemiology is the study of how disease is distributed in a population and the factors that influence or determine the distribution” (Gordis, 2009). Incidence Rate- The incidence rate is the number of new cases of a disease reported during a specific period (typically a year) divided by the number of individuals in the population. (McCance, Heuther, Brasher and Rote, 2014) Prevalence- The prevalence rate is the proportion of the population affected by a disease at a specific point in time. Thus, both the incidence rate and the length of the survival period in affected individuals determine prevalence (McCance, et al, 2014). Morbidity- According to Taber’s (1997), “a state of being diseased; the number of sick persons or cases of disease, in relation to a specific population. Measures of Morbidity- Incidence Rate and Prevalence Incidence rate per 1000 = # of new cases of a disease occurring in the population (during a specified period of time) ___________________________divided by______________________ x1000 # of persons who are at risk of developing the disease during that period. Prevalence per 1000= # of cases of a disease present in the population (during a specified time) ___________divided by____________________________ # of person in the population at that specified time (Gordis, p38,43). Mortality: According to Tabers (1997), “The condition of being mortal; (causing death or subject to death); the death rate: the ratio of number of deaths to a given population.” Annual Mortality Rates for All Causes per 1000= # of deaths from all causes in 1 year ___________divided by_________________ x1000 # of persons in a population at midyear (Gordis, p63). Discussion Forum Guidelines: Part 1 1. Search the internet to find: – The top 10 causes of mortality in the United States in persons aged 1 to 24 years – The top 10 causes of mortality in the United States in persons aged 25 years and older.. 2. Post the list of the top 10 causes of mortality for each age group, from your search and post the reliable source(s) where you retrieved your information. Briefly describe the website(s) and share why the source(s) is reliable. 3. After you post the list, you will pick only one cause of death and the morbidity associated with the cause of death from the list to explore and to discuss. Do not pick the same condition as another student. This means you will have to check the discussion forum frequently to see who has chosen what. Your choice is on a first come, first serve basis. Use the textbook to answer the following questions, along with any other reliable sources you need to use to answer the questions. Hint: You are not performing a literature review for this assignment. You may use other resources to answer the questions than your text, but the goal here is not to see how many sources you used. All you need to do is answer the questions, as asked…just the facts! When writing your answers, be concise, yet thorough. This is a skill you will continue to develop throughout your FNP program. I do not mean for you to write like these physicians did: Patient had two teenage children, but no other abnormalities. On the second day, the knee was better and by the third day, it had completely disappeared. Patient was alert and unresponsive. When she fainted, her eyes rolled around the room. Rectal exam revealed a normal sized thyroid By the time he was admitted, his rapid heart had stopped, and he was feeling better (Gordis, 2009, p.50). 4. Answer the following questions, once you have posted the cause of disease/death you are exploring. You will post the answers to the questions below in both the body of the forum and as an attachment so that your classmates can download the information to use as a study guide. – What is the etiology (cause) of the condition- Max 3 sentences – What is the epidemiology for this condition- Max 3 sentences. – What is the underlying pathophysiology- Max 10 sentences. – What are the main clinical manifestations of this condition that you might expect to see in a primary care office- Max 5 sentences 5. Remember to cite all sources correctly, using APA format. Provide a reference list. Part 2 6. After you read all of your classmates’ posts, you will respond to no less than 2 other students by 11:59PM ET Sunday of Week 1. References Gordis, L. (2009). Epidemiology.
