Explain the types of actions, side effects, indications, and  contraindications that could be expected from the pharmacological  treatment

Once you have selected a disease or health condition, create a  PowerPoint presentation you could use in your lunch and learn session,  including the following:

    • Identify the disease or health condition you have chosen, along  with the areas where nurses are likely to see it. (Do this in the agenda  slide or next slide after the agenda.)

 

    • Identify the three drugs used most often in the treatment of the disease or health condition.

 

  • Explain the types of actions, side effects, indications, and  contraindications that could be expected from the pharmacological  treatment.
  • Describe the treatment regime most often prescribed for the  disease or health condition. This should include pharmacology but not be  limited to pharmacology.
  • Explain how the treatment regime (including pharmacology) may  impact a client’s lifestyle. Consider things such as finances, ease or  complexity of administration, instructions (frequency, duration), et  cetera.
  • Describe how a nurse should monitor a client being treated for  the disease or health condition in order to obtain a quality patient  outcome.
  • Explain any controversies associated with the drugs used in the  treatment. For example, is there a black box warning with any of the  drugs?

Use the notes section of each slide to expand your points or draft  your mock oral presentation (or both) and reference your resources. Use  at least 3 peer-reviewed or professional resources to support your work  in this assessment. Be sure your PowerPoint includes a title slide, a  slide with your agenda or list of topics to be covered, and a reference  slide. Follow current APA style and formatting guidelines for your  citations and references.
