Chamberlain College of Nursing Program Outcome #5

In reflecting back on the last 7 weeks of this course, I have been able to incorporate course material such as sexual history taking in the elderly with my practicum experience. During week six of this course, we learned about sexuality issues in the aging population. I was presented in clinic with an elderly patient soon after learning about sexual history taking. The patient was in clinic for a possible UTI that had not been resolved with multiple antibiotic treatments. I was able to determine the antibiotics she had been taking and learned about her sexual history in the same exam. I politely gathered information about urinary practices and vaginal care without offending the patient and without feeling awkward. I was able to rule out bacterial vaginosis and sexually transmitted disease with just a few questions. After examining recent urine cultures, my preceptor and I decided on prescribing Macrobid based on susceptibility and also having never taken Macrobid.

During week two of this course we learned about issues concerning polypharmacy and the Beers criteria. One patient I encountered during clinical was a clear victim of polypharmacy. This patient was seeing multiple providers and had multiple prescriptions that frankly confused her.….please click the purchase button below to access the entire solution at $10
