Description of the Assignment
Students are to review at least one peer Disease Process Presentation using the guidelines below. The peer review is due by Thursday, 11:59 p.m. MT.Week 7

- Introduce the disease with a brief definition and description.
- Discuss the risk factors and the connection to the etiology of the initial injury to the cell/tissue/organ.
- Discuss health care provider implications for prevention of the disease.
- Show the progression from the initial injury to the defect in the tissue, organ and system functioning.
- Link changes in the tissue, organ, and system functioning to the initial presenting signs and symptoms seen in primary care of the disease.
- Provide a brief description of how the disease is diagnosed.
- Provide a brief description of the pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions used to treat and manage the disease.
- Summarizes the disease on final slide with concluding remarks; includes implication for nurse practitioner practice.
- Utilizes at least two current (within 5 years), peer-review scholarly sources to support presentation content.
- Reference slide and in-text citations depict references correctly cited according to APA.
Students are to review at least one peer’s recorded the presentation and respond to it by Thursday, 11:59 p.m. MT using the Disease Process Peer Review Guidelines.
