Evaluation and Management of Gastrointestinal Conditions

Think ahead to the pediatric patients and families you may meet in this i-Human Case Study Assignment and,
based on the Learning Resources, the types of gastrointestinal conditions that may be waiting for you in your
virtual office on the i-Human platform. Have in mind GI conditions that you would particularly like to address in
the avatar setting. Also reflect on your previous i-Human case studies and consider a child of an age, race, or
ethnicity that you have not yet examined and would expand your experience to do so this week.

Consider how to apply knowledge of gastrointestinal conditions and
understanding of socio-cultural family needs to assessing, diagnosing, and treating pediatric patients.
Access i-Human Patients from this week’s Learning Resources and review the i-Human Case Study of Max
King V5 PC. Based on the provided patient information, think about the health history you would need to collect
from the patient.
Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the
patient’s condition. Reflect on how the results would be used to make a diagnosis.
Identify 3–5 possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient.
Consider the patient’s diagnosis. Think about clinical guidelines that might support this diagnosis.
Develop a treatment plan for the patient that includes health promotion and patient education strategies for
pediatric patients with gastrointestinal conditions and their families
