I-HUMAN CASE STUDY: EVALUATION AND MANAGEMENT OF EENT CONDITIONS

Michael Martinez I-Human Case Study: Evaluation and Management Of EENT Conditions

In this course, you will engage with case studies using the i-Human software application. The i-Human Patients (IHP) Case Player allows you to interact with virtual patients to enhance your patient-assessment and diagnostic-reasoning skills. Through IHP, you can independently interview, examine, diagnose, and treat virtual patients while receiving expert feedback on your performance.

The integumentary system is susceptible to various diseases, conditions, and injuries, ranging from minor bacterial or fungal infections to severe issues like skin cancer and life-threatening burns.

For the Case Study Assignment, your task is to examine a patient with an integumentary condition. This involves formulating a differential diagnosis, evaluating treatment options, and creating an appropriate treatment plan.

Resources:

  • Review the Learning Resources for insights on assessing, diagnosing, and treating patients with integumentary conditions.
  • Access i-Human from the Learning Resources and review the assigned case study. Consider the necessary health history to collect from the patient.
  • Identify relevant physical exams and diagnostic tests to gather more information about the patient’s condition.
  • Reflect on how results would contribute to making a diagnosis.
  • List three to five possible conditions for the patient’s differential diagnosis.
  • Consider clinical guidelines that may support the diagnosis.
  • Develop a treatment plan, incorporating health promotion and patient education strategies for integumentary conditions.

Assignment: Interact with this week’s i-Human patient and complete the assigned case study. For guidance on using i-Human, refer to the i-Human Graduate Programs Help link within the i-Human platform.
