Module 4 GU & GI Assessment

Module 4

A 19-year-old woman attending the local university experiences increasing urinary frequency, along with urgency and dysuria for 3 days. Over the next 12 hours or so, these symptoms persist, and her urine is pinkish. She then becomes concerned and goes to the campus student health clinic for advice. You are the nurse at the campus health clinic. Vital signs are: T = 37.5ºC, P = 105, R = 18, and BP = 105/70 mm Hg. The only abnormal finding on physical examination is….

The assignment reads to do a GI assessment, and the case study I have provided you has GU symptoms.  So, I’m asking you to do a full ABDOMINAL assessment on this client.  Practice the subjective questions you would ask AND the objective data you would need to collect for both gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems.  This would be a realistic situation presenting to the ED or Urgent Care and if you omit the assessment on one of those systems, the provider may miss the diagnosis.  How do you know which one is causing the problem unless you check them all out?

Assignment Instructions

Assignment 1: The Annotated Bibliography

Objective:  Assess sources for your research for your final presentation (for credibility, reliability, and relevance) and list references in proper APA format

Assignment Instructions:  The Course Project for this class is divided into three major Assignments, 1) Annotated Bibliography, 2) Outline and 3) Final Presentation. The first part is the Annotated Bibliography. An annotation is a summary and evaluation, and your annotated bibliography will include a summary and evaluation of some of the sources (or references) you will use for your presentation.

To prepare for this assignment, I recommend that you do the following:

  • Read these directions carefully.
  • Review the sample annotated bibliography provided to you below.
  • Read the grading criteria below.  The grading criteria is a detailed evaluation that I will use to assess your performance.  It also will help you understand what is expected of you as you prepare your assignments.
  • Message me with any questions!

The reason the annotated bibliography is included as part of the research project is that writing an annotated bibliography is important in that it provides excellent preparation for the final presentation. One of the issues regarding any type of research, especially in the biosciences, medical, health/nutrition and exercise/fitness fields, is the credibility of the sources used, particularly those obtained from various websites. By forcing you to evaluate each of your potential sources carefully, the annotated bibliography helps you determine if in fact the source you chose is credible and helps you determine how relevant it is to your topic and understand the topic better which will help you develop your presentation.

For this project, you will assess three sources to include:

1) a complete citation for each source,

2) a summary of each source, and

3) an evaluation of each source.

Three sources are required for this assignment (i.e., you are to write an annotation for each source).  However, you must use five or more sources in your final presentation. 

Use this TEMPLATE to summarize and evaluate each of your three sources.

  1. Citation:

Written in APA reference list format. For more help with formatting, see APA handout.

  1. Summary:

What is the purpose of the source, review article, original research? What topics are covered? This section is generally 4-6 sentences that summarize the author’s main point. For more help, see this link on paraphrasing sources.

  1. Evaluation:

After summarizing the article (or research paper or book), it is necessary to evaluate it and state where you found it – its source (e.g., journal, website, etc.).  Briefly answer the following questions in 4-6 sentences:

What is the format or type of source (e.g., peer-reviewed journal paper, website, book)? How reliable is the information in the article, and how credible is the source (e.g., website’s sponsoring organization, journal or book publisher) and the author(s)?

For more help, see this handout on evaluating resources.

Additional Resources:

Evaluation:  Please review the Annotated Bibliography Grading Criteria that describes how your annotated bibliography will be graded.

Submission Instructions:

  1. You must submit your Annotated Bibliography as a “Microsoft Word” document using the template provided (rather than a Word Pad, Works, etc. document) AND title your file name asFirstnameLastname_BIOL181_Assg1.doc. Otherwise, you will not receive credit for your assignment.
