Topic: 3-2 Final Project Milestone Two: Draft of Client Analysis
Sally, 63–year–old Caucasian female
Sally was recently admitted to the hospital for a heart attack in which she had stents— surgical implants to help aid blood flow—put in. Sally has been a homemaker since marrying her husband of 30 years; he retired last year from a large company whose pension plan was decimated in the recession. Prior to her heart attack, Sally had hopes of finding a part–time job to help support their household.
Prompt: Submit your draft of Section I: Client Analysis. (Now that you have monitored your patient, learned of his or her traditional course of treatment of chronic conditions, and become familiar with his or her emotional, social, and overall wellness conditions, you should have enough information to provide varied approaches to helping your client improve his or her quality of life and management of illness.)
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Client Analysis: In this part of the summative assessment, you will analyze the information you have been provided regarding your chosen individual client. Review the overall health status of the individual throughout his or her life span, key factors that have influenced his or her health status, and the national guidelines for like individuals.
A. Describe the overall health and wellness status of your chosen individual based on materials from the course and your previous analysis. What condition (health, social, emotional, etc.) was the individual in when the course began? What condition is he or she in now?
B. Analyze the health status of your chosen individual for different key factors that may have contributed to his or her current health condition. For example, what risk factors are typically associated with the health condition of the chosen individual?
C. Explain the national guidelines regarding health status of an individual similar to your chosen individual. What do the national guidelines (such as, but not limited to, those published by the Centers for Disease Control [CDC], Medicare, and the National Institutes of Health [NIH]) state about the specific condition, and why will these guidelines work or not work for your client?
