NSG 4055- Week 1 project Introduction
NSG 4055- Week 1 project Introduction
While treating the chronically ill, a major challenge is
developing a plan of care that addresses the specific needs of a patient and a
caregiver. You need to be in close touch with patients and their support group,
family and peers, to come up with an ideal plan.
In this course project, you are going to develop a plan of
care for a chronic illness group of your choice using the Healthy People 2020
Topics. While executing the tasks of this project, remember that while you need
to give a general overview of the biomedical considerations of the case, the
focus should always be on the psychosocial elements. Your perspective in this
care plan should be the patient’s goals rather than those of the medical team.
Each week, you will complete a part of this project. You
will submit a final completed project in Week 5. Be sure to take the time to
carefully complete each of the weekly assignments and then put it all together
in Week 5.
Ensure that you save a copy of this course project after you
have submitted it at the end of this course. You are expected to resubmit this
project along with the other course projects at the end of the Registered Nurse
(RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. File Transfer Protocol
(FTP) details will be provided in the Capstone course.
Identifying a Group
Identify an area of chronic illness of specific interest to
you and that is represented as a Healthy People 2020 topic (healthypeople.gov).
Explain your choice and your interest in it. Prepare a questionnaire utilizing
your knowledge of health and illness, with the aim of acquiring all information
you need from patients to prepare a plan of care for the specific illness
group. Submit your information in a 4- to 5-page Microsoft Word document. In addition
to your questionnaire, be sure to include the following details in your paper.
Chronic Illness of interest
Morbidity and comorbidity of the disease
Impact of the chronic illness and patient morbidity and the
affect to overall health of nation
Healthy People 2020 goals and objectives for specific

Metoprolol is selective for which adrenoceptor? ( pharmacodynamics)
The 2020 ISH Global Hypertension Practice Guidelines explain that Metoprolol is a Beta-blocker that is selective for beta (1)-adrenergic receptors (Unger et al., 2020).
What effects do agents such as metoprolol have on the cardiovascular system? ( pharmacodynamics)
According to the 2020 ISH Global Hypertension Practice Guidelines, Beta-blockers such as metoprolol reduce myocardial oxygen consumption by blocking beta-adrenergic sympathetic stimulation to the heart. This results in decreased heart rate, slowed conduction of impulses through the conduction system, decreased blood pressure, and reduced myocardial contractility (force of contraction) to balance the myocardial (Unger et al., 2020).
In which organ is metoprolol primarily metabolized? (Pharmacokinetics)
Metoprolol is primarily metabolized in the liver by CYP2D6.
Why would a provider be cautious when ordering a Beta Blocker in a patient with Asthma?
Caution would be needed when prescribing a Beta blocker in a patient with a history of asthma due to associated severe bronchospasm that leads to asthma attacks. Although cardioselective β1-blockers have been developed to block cardiac β1-adrenoceptors with less activity at airway β2-receptors, the selectivity is incomplete (Unger et al., 2020). This has led to concerns about the safety of cardioselective β1-blockers in patients with airways disease like asthma.

Scholarly Resources: Scholarly resources are written with a focus on a specific subject discipline and usually written by an expert in the same subject field. Scholarly resources are written for an academic audience.
Examples of Scholarly Resources include: Academic journals, books written by experts in a field, and formally published encyclopedias and dictionaries.
Peer-Reviewed Journals: Peer-reviewed journals are evaluated prior to publication by experts in the journal’s subject discipline. This process ensures that the articles published within the journal are academically rigorous and meet the required expectations of an article in that subject discipline.
Empirical Journal Article: This type of scholarly resource is a subset of scholarly articles that reports the original finding of an observational or experimental research study. Common aspects found within an empirical article include: literature review, methodology, results, and discussion.
