Project #36569 - Need a little more detail

The case study is a 74 year old female with diverticulitis

I need a little more detail added to my case study also I need 2 specific citations within my paper from the following:

Internet Sites for Treatment Guidelines

Students should consult at least two of these for the graded assignment

National Guideline Clearinghouse at www.guidelines.gov or www.icsi.org (Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement). Clinical practice guidelines for numerous acute conditions included in this course. This is a storage area for many articles and guidelines (like a library).  When students use an article from this storage area, they should cite the article, not the clearinghouse.  Particularly, if students are using more than one of the articles found here. Essential Evidence Plus

Search a variety of evidence-based resources including practice guidelines, evidence summaries, calculators, and abstracts. (The FNU library does have a subscription to this so you may access this through our online library.)

How to Cite Information from DynaMed (as recommended at the DynaMed site - see http://www.ebscohost.com/dynamed/howToCite.php for more detail)

Example using Acute Otitis Media:

DynaMed Editorial Team.(2007). Acute otitis media. Last updated August 7, 2009. Retrieved from DynaMed: http://www.ebscohost.com/dynamed

If additional authors or reviewers are named in the Acknowledgements section of the cited topic (e.g. Transient tachypnea of neonate [TTN]), use the following format:

DynaMed Editorial Team. Halverson, L., LaRue, O. (Authors). Cowett, R. (Reveiwer). (2007). Transcient tachypnea of neonate (TTN).Last updated February 20, 2007. Retrieved from DynaMed: http://www.ebscohost.com/dynamed

Since the purpose of DynaMed is to evaluate the existing evidence related to a particular topic, none of what you find in DynaMed  is original to the DynaMed editors. Sometimes the information is a compilation of sources and other times one particular author may stand out. If it is a compilation of several authors, just cite the Editorial Team as opposed to all the separate authors. The dates that you will cite include DynaMed 2013 and the updated date.

 

If it is obvious that what you are referencing is from one particular author, then cite as Author, date "as cited in DynaMed, 2013"  (Allport, 2001 as cited in DynaMed, 2013) in the text and reference as DynaMed in the reference list with the latest last updated date. This is on page 178 of the APA manual (6th ed). You will note that this is not supposed to be done unless the original source is not available. However, for the purposes of this paper in this course, we have decided to use this regardless of the availability of the original source. As faculty grading your paper, this makes the source of your information very clear.

 

www.clinicalevidence.org This publication is released every six months by the British Medical Journal and compiles the latest in evidence-based medicine for specific diagnoses. This is a great book. (Our library does not subscribe to the online data base so you may want to use DynaMed and Essential Evidence Plus in place of this.)

http://www.aafp.org The American Family Physician is a publication of the American Academy of Family Physicians and is available on line under “News and Publications” on their home page. It gives you an index to help you find what you need.

http://www.cdc.gov This is a link to the Centers for Disease Control. There are links here for guidelines in the treatment of infectious disease. There are also links to the Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Report that gives statistics and updates about all diseases.

http://www.merckmedicus.com/ Merck Medicus Professional is listed in the Right menu on this webpage. This is an excellent resource for medical information and news, clinical guidelines, patient education and much more. Check it out!

http://www.hon.ch/ This is a "google" for resources for medical professionals. From here you can find as many as a million resources!

The following are consumer health information resources not appropriate for case study references.
http://medlineplus.gov This is a consumer health information resource from the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. It includes health topics, drug information, directories, health tutorials with sound and pictures, current health news, and clinical trials.

http://clinicaltrials.gov This is also a consumer health information resource from the National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health. It gives the consumer the latest in clinical trial research.
