Neurological Function 

 

Part 1:

Compare and contrast the 3 conditions in one of the charts below: 

PAIN SYNDROME

 

Migraine Headaches 

Tension Headaches 

Meningitis 

Risk Factors 

 

 

 

Pathophysiology 

 

 

 

Clinical Manifestations 

 

 

 

 

OR

NEUROLOGIC SYNDROME

 

Dementia 

Depression  

Anxiety

Risk Factors 

 

 

 

Pathophysiology 

 

 

 

Clinical Manifestations 

 

 

 

Part 2:

Choose a pain or neurologic syndrome to explore. You can also choose a diagnosis not listed (that coincides with your advanced practice specialty) as long as it relates to the neurological function.

Present a hypothetical case that includes the following:

1. Vital information about a person who might be predisposed to this condition (I.e., a person who may have risk factors for this condition). 

2. The pathophysiology of the disease, including clinical manifestations.

3. Which diagnostic tests you’d recommend and a rationale for the one(s) you choose.

4. How this condition compares to other differentials.

5. The evidence-based recommendations from the AHRQ Guidelines or guidelines recommended from a professional organization. Based on these recommendations, discuss how  to manage the condition best.

6. A patient safety issue that could be associated with the condition presented in this case.
