Overview

To address the needs of advanced practice nursing programs that have been increasingly moving in the direction of problem-based learning, CASE STUDIES IN PRIMARY CARE provides students and instructors with "real-world" scenarios from which to teach and learn. Problem-based learning closely portrays the real world of health care and teaches students to carefully analyze various situations in order to deliver the most effective health care. This book includes 44 case studies on the most commonly encountered situations in primary care. The case studies are presented as those that might occur during a "normal day in the office." The case studies cover all age groups as well as various cultures. Each of the case studies is presented with an introductory scenario, which varies in detail from case to case, just as one would find in the clinical setting. Then the reader is presented with some points to consider requiring critical thinking and analysis of the data. After the student has considered his or her plan of action (or after class discussion of the case), he is able to review a thorough feedback analysis for each case study. The feedback sections illustrate the critical thinking processes related to differential diagnosis, treatment options, and all other aspects related to the delivery of primary care.

* Covers "real-world" scenarios to give students the opportunity to analyze situations likely to be encountered in clinical settings.
• Emphasizes problem-based learning to encourage students to think critically and analyze situations thoroughly in order to provide appropriate health care.
• Includes case studies for all age groups and cultures to provide a variety of possible situations for the student to "encounter" before entering the health care arena.
• Presents cases in a format that shows student how a typical day might ensue.
