Assignment
In this Assignment, you examine a case study of a patient who presents with symptoms of a possible GI/hepatobiliary disorder, and you design
an appropriate drug therapy plan.
To Prepare
Review the case study assigned by your Instructor for this Assignment
============================================
Reflect on the patient’s symptoms, medical history, and drugs currently prescribed.
Think about a possible diagnosis for the patient. Consider whether the patient has a disorder related to the gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary
system or whether the symptoms are the result of a disorder from another system or other factors, such as pregnancy, drugs, or a psychological
disorder.
Consider an appropriate drug therapy plan based on the patient’s history, diagnosis, and drugs currently prescribed.
=======================================
Write a 1-page paper that addresses the following:

Case study:
Patient HL comes into the clinic with the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The patient has a history of drug abuse and
possible Hepatitis C. HL is currently taking the following prescription drugs:
Synthroid 100 mcg daily

Prednisone 10 mg daily
Reflect on the patient’s symptoms, medical history, and drugs currently prescribed.

My Instructor’s requirement
*Start your paper with “My diagnosis is XXX because…” Do NOT include stats or a lot of pathophysiology. Instead, tell me why you think the
patient has this diagnosis. (First bullet point below).

*Create headings for 1. Justification of treatment (3rd bullet point below) and 2. My suggested drug therapy plan (2nd bullet point below).
Explain your diagnosis for the patient, including your rationale for the diagnosis. GI is very non-specific. Do not be surprised if you must make
an educated guess. Include ONE diagnosis and include your reasoning for the ONE diagnosis. Do NOT include other possible diagnoses.
Describe an appropriate drug therapy plan based on the patient’s history, diagnosis, and drugs currently prescribed. Use bullet points for the
drug therapy plan. Include a point for each drug the patient is currently taking. Should it be continued, adjusted, or stopped? Add new drugs if
needed. Include drug name, dose, frequency, and duration of treatment / follow-up.
Justify why you would recommend this drug therapy plan for this patient. Be specific and provide examples. Why did you choose to treat the
patient this way? Refer to treatment guidelines if available or standard practice if no treatment guidelines are available. Consider drug/drug and
drug/disease interactions. You will need to use a drug reference like Merck Manual or UpToDate for information on the drugs. You can use the
textbook or drug reference for the signs and symptoms of the disease state. You can also use primary research studies that fit the patient.
You have access to Merck Manual through Walden’s library. Go to Library, then Databases A-Z. Click on M and scroll down for Merck Manual. In
Merck Manual you can search by disease state (medical topic) or by drug (under Drug info). I shared how to reference Merck Manual in a
previous announcement with APA tips.
Please post questions on the assignment under Contact the Instructor – Week 4, as multiple people may have the same question.
