When seeking to identify a patient’s health condition, advanced practice nurses can use a diverse selection of diagnostic tests and assessment tools

Assignment 1: Case Study Assignment: Assessment Tools and Diagnostic Tests in Adults and Children

When seeking to identify a patient’s health condition, advanced practice nurses can use a diverse selection of diagnostic tests and assessment tools; however, different factors affect the validity and reliability of the results produced by these tests or tools. Nurses must be aware of these factors in order to select the most appropriate test or tool and to accurately interpret the results.

Not only do these diagnostic tests affect adults, body measurements can provide a general picture of whether a child is receiving adequate nutrition or is at risk for health issues. These data, however, are just one aspect to be considered. Lifestyle, family history, and culture—among other factors—are also relevant. That said, gathering and communicating this information can be a delicate process.

For this Assignment, you will consider the validity and reliability of different assessment tools and diagnostic tests. You will explore issues such as sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values. You will also consider examples of children with various weight issues. You will explore how you could effectively gather information and encourage parents and caregivers to be proactive about their children’s health and weight.

                                                     To Prepare

Review this week’s Learning Resources and consider factors that impact the validity and reliability of various assessment tools and diagnostic tests. You also will review examples of pediatric patients and their families as it relates to BMI.

By Day 1 of this week, you will be assigned to one of the following Assignment options by your Instructor: Adult Assessment Tools, Diagnostic Tests, or Child Health Case. Based on the Assignment option assigned to you, your Instructor will also assign you assessment tools or diagnostic tests to apply to either an adult or the child health example assigned to you. Note: Please see the “Course Announcements” section of the classroom for your assignments from your Instructor.

Search the Walden Library and credible sources for resources explaining the tool or test you were assigned. What is its   purpose, how is it conducted, and what information does it gather?

Also, as you search the Walden library and credible sources, consider what the literature discusses regarding the validity,    reliability, sensitivity, specificity, predictive values, ethical dilemmas, and controversies related to the test or tool.

If you are assigned Assignment Option 2 (Child), consider what health issues and risks may be relevant to the child in the health example.

Based on the risks you identified, consider what further information you would need to gain a full understanding of the child’s health. Think about how you could gather this information in a sensitive fashion.

Consider how you could encourage parents or caregivers to be proactive toward the child’s health.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"
Rajab M.Rajab M.
Academic Research Bureau has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied

I was shocked by how your writers managed to deliver my paper on time, and I was among the best in our class in that paper. Thank you so much and I will never hesitate to use you
