(Solution) Nr507 Week 7 Disease Process Presentation


The purpose of the Disease Process Presentation is for learners to:

  • Develop professional presentation/communication skills.
  • Demonstrate an advancing understanding of pathophysiological processes of body systems that result in the diagnosis and treatment of patients who present with these disorders in these systems.
  • Demonstrate the ability to analyze the literature to obtain the most current, evidence-based resources on the assigned disease process.
  • Demonstrate and practice professional communication and leadership, while advancing the education of peers.

Due Date:  Tuesday 11:59 PM MT Week 7 to both the Week


7 discussion board and the Week 7 assignment area.

Course outcomes

  1. Analyze pathophysiological mechanisms associated with select disease states.
  2. Relate research findings to the management of patients with complex pathophysiologic dysfunction.

Total Points Possible: 200 points


Description of the Assignment

For Week 7 of the course, there is no case study given to you by the faculty. Instead you will be creating an audio/video recorded presentation that demonstrates your understanding of a selected disease process. This presentation will be uploaded into the course via Kaltura (see course resources for directions).

Criteria for Content

  1. Introduce the disease with a brief definition and description.
  2. Discuss the Risk Factorsand the connection to the Etiology of the initial injury to the cell/tissue/organ.
  3. Discuss health care provider implications for prevention of the disease.
  4. Show the progression from the initial injury to the defect in the tissue, organ and system functioning.
  5. Link changes in the tissue, organ, and system functioning to the initial presenting signs and symptoms seen in primary careof the disease.
  6. Provide a brief description of how the disease is diagnosed.
  7. Provide a brief description of the pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions used to treat and manage the disease.
  8. Summarizes the disease on final slide with concluding remarks; includes implication for nurse practitioner practice.
  9. Utilizes at least two current (within 5 years), peer-reviewed scholarly sources to support presentation content.
  10. Reference slide and in-text citations depict references correctly cited according to APA.


DM1, formally known as insulin-dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes, is a chronic condition that occurs when the pancrease produces little or no insulin due to autoimmune beta cells in the pancreas (ADA, 2018). Katsarou et al. (2017) defines insulin as the hormone that allows the passage of sugar (glucose) into the cells for energy production. DM1 is more prevalent in children and adolescents but can also develop in adults. The digestive system breaks down carbohydrates into glucose which is then transported to the cells through the blood stream. The pancreas is responsible for secreting insulin hormone which allows for movement of glucose from blood to the body cells (Zaccardi, Webb, Yates, & Davies, 2016). Inside the cells, the glucose is burned along with oxygen in order to produce oxygen. For patients with type 1 diabetes, the pancreas does not make enough insulin to maintain blood glucose at normal levels (Katsarou et al., 2017). This increases glucose within the bloodstream and reduces glucose in cells for energy production leading to diabetes type 1 (Zaccardi et al., 2016)…..Please click the Paypal icon below to purchase full solution for only $10
