PLEASE READ INSTRUCTOR COMMENTS: The objective of this paper is NOT to describe how one medical disease can cause another problem such as Chronic renal failure can cause Depression. Here are EXAMPLES of how to proceed: Part 1 (a) When comparing a person with a mental health diagnosis to a person with a medical disorder diagnosis we find even though they are two separate types of conditions they still have similarities. One patient may be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and another patient may be a 30 year old teacher diagnosed with the medical condition hyperthyroidism. Similarities these two patients may experience include:??? Weight changes, irritability etc. (do not use “etc” in a scholarly paper) both diseases are chronic conditions with no known cure (Smeltzer, Bare, Hinkle, & Cheever, 2010). Then you can continue with the fact that different diagnosis will present differences in what the person has to deal with as part of the disease process. For example, some symptoms associated with Hyperthyroid disease that is not seen in Alzheimer’s disease include; Palpitations, tachycardia, perspiration, tremors etc (of course you are NOT going to use “etc” you are going to give a complete list). Then go on to describe symptoms seen in Alzheimer’s disease that are not seen in Hyperthyroid disease; cognitive functioning, wandering, sundowning, inability to do self-care activities, communication difficulties, and safety issues (Smeltzer et al., 2010). Then you can continue with the remainder of the questions answering each section: (b) Discuss how the efforts and resources required to manage the disorders compare to one another. Which efforts are used to treat Alzheimers? Which are used to treat Hyperthyroidism? Which resources are needed for Alzheimers and which for Hyperthyroidism? (c) Identify two (2) issues that may arise for the patient and/or family when caring for the patients with the identified disorders. Provide two (2) descriptive examples. What two issues may arise for a patien/familyt with Alzheimers? Which two issues may present for a patient/family with Hyperthyroidism? Part 2 (a) Continue NOTE: You can set up tables or accomplish the paper any way you like as long as you follow APA format in the use of in text citations, remember, I am NOT seeking your opinion, I am looking for concrete data, so use in text citations to support your ideas.
