Part 1: Presentation
Create a PowerPoint presentation (15-20 slides, with speaker notes) for a staff training meeting on the pathophysiology and pharmacologic agents for a select disease process.
Alzheimer’s Disease: Describe the physiology and pathophysiology of the disease, clinical manifestations, and evaluation (e.g., labs, imaging).
Describe the pharmacologic treatment of the disease, including pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, drug interactions, side effects, adverse reactions, and application of the nursing process in monitoring the drug therapy.
Part 2: Educational Resource Using your selected disease process from Part 1, develop an educational resource that can assist staff in increasing patient knowledge of medications and medication compliance.
The vehicle for your educational resource could include pamphlets, handouts, or any other brief, concise medium to convey the information to staff.
