Properly identifying the cause and type of a patient’s skin condition involves a process of elimination known as differential diagnosis. Using this process, a health professional can take a given set of physical abnormalities, vital signs, health assessment findings, and patient descriptions of symptoms, and incrementally narrow them down until one diagnosis is determined as the most likely cause.
Examine several visual representations of various skin conditions, describe your observations, and use the techniques of differential diagnosis to determine the most likely condition.
Review the Skin Conditions document provided in this week’s Learning Resources, and select one condition to closely examine for this Lab Assignment.
Consider the abnormal physical characteristics you observe in the graphic you selected. How would you describe the characteristics using clinical terminologies?
Explore different conditions that could be the cause of the skin abnormalities in the graphics you selected.
Consider which of the conditions is most likely to be the correct diagnosis, and why.
Search the Walden library for one evidence-based practice, peer-reviewed article based on the skin condition you chose for this Lab Assignment.
Review the Comprehensive SOAP Exemplar found in this week’s Learning Resources to guide you as you prepare your SOAP note.
Choose one skin condition graphic (identify by number in your Chief Complaint) to document your assignment in the SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) note format rather than the traditional narrative style. Refer to Chapter 2 of the Sullivan text and the Comprehensive SOAP Template in this week’s Learning Resources for guidance. Remember that not all comprehensive SOAP data are included in every patient case.
Statement of Educational Needs. This is a legal document which delineates about SEN of the child and explains how these requirements will be met with. The term SEN was first introduced by the Warnock Report of the late 1970s. Earlier, disabled students who needed special education were taken care of by 1944 Education Act where it stipulated ten categories for identification of children with SEN. The following were the definition of ‘handicap’ given by the 1944 Education Act. Partially sighted/Blind Delicate Deaf Educationally subnormal Diabetic Epileptic Physically handicapped Epileptic Speech defect Mal adjusted There had been a radical change in formulation of special-education concept by the Warnock Report in 1978, which emphasised that a student’s educational requirement should be given first priority instead of individual’s learning impairment or disability. As of date, in the background of educational provision, the phrase SEN has a legal meaning which connotes to children who have learning disabilities or difficulties that make it more arduous for them to access or learn education compared to other children of the same age. In 2001 the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act established the legal rights for disabled student by amending the Disability Discrimination Act of 1996. This act protected SEN and disabled students from discrimination in all educational settings The Equality Act 2010 The Equality Act 2010 (herein after will be referred as EA) came into force with effect from 1st October 2010 in U.K, thereby grouping, harmonising and reshuffling 9 earlier Acts (The Race Relations Act (1976), The Race Relations Act (1076), Equal Pay Act 1970, The Race Relations Amendment Act (2000), Gender Discrimination Act , Equal Pay Act (1976) , The Human Rights Act (2000) , the Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003 , the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief ) Regulations 2003 and the Children’s Act (2004) and more than one hundred sets of regulations legislated over forty years. Some of the unique features of EA 2010 are as follows; The EA has developed a different definition of disability. The definition almost analogues to that of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 with following two chief exceptions; Now, the precondition that a mental impairment should be clinically well-acknowledged illness has been removed.>GET ANSWER
