Discussion Post Step 1 The scenario:

You are a nurse at Samaritan General Hospital. You have been asked to create patient education handouts for a variety of integumentary disorders. After you gather the information to put in the handout, you will ask your peers for feedback on the information.

Step 2 Select an integumentary disorder that you would like to learn about and, if necessary, research the pathophysiology of the disorder.

Step 3 Your first task is to describe the pathophysiology of the disorder that you will include in the patient handout. This information should be followed by common signs and symptoms of the disorder. Be sure to cover the pathophysiology of the disorder in terms a patient (or his or her caregiver) would be able to understand. Be sure to cite all sources you use and provide a reference using proper APA formatting.

Step 4 In addition to your original post, be sure to provide a meaningful response to at least two of your peer’s posts by Friday night at 11:59pm Mountain Time.

In your response, provide constructive feedback on the content included in the information as well as the appropriateness of the information for the patient. If differences of opinion occur, debate the issues professionally and provide examples to support your opinions. RN to BSN Program
