NURS 6521 Week 9 Womens and Mens Health Infections and Hematologic Systems Part I

As an advanced practice nurse, you will most likely encounter a wide range of women’s and men’s health disorders, including hormone deficiencies, cancers, and other functional and structural abnormalities. These disorders have both physiological and psychological consequences for patients, such as embarrassment, guilt, or profound disappointment. The provider-patient relationship must be carefully managed for these reasons. Patients must feel comfortable answering questions during evaluations so that you, as a key health-care provider, can diagnose and recommend appropriate treatment options. Advanced practice nurses must be able to educate patients about these disorders while also assisting in the removal of associated stigmas and concerns

This week, you examine women’s and men’s health concerns as well as the types of drugs used to treat disorders that affect women’s and men’s health. You also explore how to treat aspects of these disorders on other health systems.
