DNP: Emerging Areas Of Human Health

 

Topic 1: Genomics

DQ 1

Name three essential structural elements of a functional eukaryotic chromosome and describe their functions. Discuss the implications related to research, health, and life span in terms of one of the structural elements.

DQ 2

Describe the difference among replication, transcription, and translation for both DNA and RNA.

Topic 2: Genetics I

DQ 1

Describe at least four factors that can be associated in a complex inheritance health issue.

DQ 2

Compare two genomic tests used for screening, diagnosis, and management of a disease. Describe whether outcome data exists related to the utility of these tests and what the data shows, if available.

Topic 3: Genetics 2

DQ 1

Contrast two models used for multigenerational family health histories. Which do you prefer and why?

DQ 2

Describe the importance of a comprehensive health and physical assessment that includes information on environment, and genomic influences. Frame this answer through your current role, whether as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) with a practice, or a nurse executive overseeing nursing practice in an organization.

Topic 4: Personalized Genetic Medicine

DQ 1

Genetics testing is viewed as either positive or negative. When used to detect the genes for breast cancer, health insurance companies deny care based on genetics. Why? Describe one genetic test and its impact on health, prevention, screening, diagnostics, treatment selection, and treatment effectiveness.

DQ 2

Evidence-based practice and standardized clinical guidelines have improved organizations and the ability of providers to provide the care with the highest level of evidence to each patient. Describe one pharmacological agent with a protocol/clinical guideline that is used. Discuss how this protocol may not take into consideration genetic variations. What can be done to tailor care to each patient while providing standardized treatments?

Topic 5: Nutrition

DQ 1

Describe one health issue and discuss how nutrition can impact this health issue positively and negatively.

DQ 2

Choose one disorder of malnutrition. Discuss the genetic and environmental influences on this disorder, including prevalence rates, testing, treatment, and prognosis.

Topic 6: Aging

DQ 1

Discuss how genetic and genomics can play a role in a demand for new health services and how it may impact health care expenditures in the aging population. Give one example.

DQ 2

Describe one method that includes using evidence-based data to support a new or innovative ways to care for the aging now or in the future. How will it impact care and what are the anticipated outcomes?

Topic 7: Chronic Disease

DQ 1

Discuss how genetic and genomics can play a role in a demand for new health services and how it may impact health care expenditures in the chronic disease population. Give one example.

DQ 2

Describe one method that includes using evidence-based data to support a new or innovative way to care for those with chronic disease now or in the future. How will it impact care and what are the anticipated outcomes?

Topic 8: Ethical and Legal Considerations

DQ 1

Choose one recent (within last 2 years) news story about genetic or genomic technology. Describe the issue presented. From the perspective as an RN or APRN, describe the ethical, cultural, religious, legal, fiscal, and societal implication.
