In a Kaltura narrated PowerPoint presentation of 15 slides or less, students present a narrated case using a fictional patient who presents to clinic with assigned medical condition. Students will describe the most commonly prescribed drugs for your assigned condition. Provide evidence by sharing clinical guidelines, research articles, or other scholarly materials to support your findings. You will identify barriers to practice or additional issues related to the condition and the use of pharmacologic treatment, including potential issues related to cultural diversity and healthcare literacy. The length of your presentation should be between 8-12 minutes total.
Read the following article and incorporate evidence from it as a part of your presentation: Dreischulte, T., & Guthrie, B. (2012). High-risk prescribing and monitoring in primary care: how common is it, and how can it be improved? Therapeutic advances in drug safety, 3(4), 175-184. The article can be found at
Finally, you will describe the expected outcomes for medication management, including expectations for follow up care. Citations should be provided at the bottom of slides, and a full reference list should be included in APA format on the final slide. You will create five (5) multiple choice or true-false questions created from your presentation content. Include the questions in the presentation, but DO NOT give the answers. Instead, provide the answers to the questions you have created in a comment to the Assignment; this allows your instructor to see the correct answers. The PowerPoint presentation and questions are due by Sunday 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 6.
