Margaret is visiting your clinic for her annual check-up. From her file you note that she is a 62-year-old woman from Kooralbyn, Queensland. She owns and has worked on a dairy farm with her husband and two sons for the past 30 years. She is 165cm tall and has maintained a BMI of 28 30 kg/m2 since she first came to the clinic in 1995. Her medical history is limited but includes numerous ankle sprains and patellar tendonitis as a teenager and young adult from playing competitive netball. Some of the injuries required physiotherapy but no surgery was performed. Margaret continues to play in a friendly league on Thursday night when possible. Today Margaret is complaining of increasing bilateral pain in her knees. She has noticed it developing for a few years now but didnt care to mention it because it was very minimal. Upon further questioning you determine that the pain is more prominent during times of activity and last week her knees gave way a couple times while playing netball. On occasion she will wake with stiffness in her knees but it only lasts a few minutes. Her knees become quite tender after a long day on the farm and she has recently started to hear creaking and grating sounds as she bends, similar to what her mum experiences. Following further assessment and testing Margaret is diagnosed with osteoarthritis. Although the exact aetiology of Margarets osteoarthritis is unknown, the doctor believes the cause is secondary to previous injuries, and general joint/s wear and tear.For this task you need to create a single (1) slide (using PowerPoint) concept map and 500 word explanation, demonstrating analysis of the case study emailed to you in week 1. A PowerPoint template file will be made available for you to customised based on your assigned case scenario. In your concept map you must:
1) Interpret the patients risk factors (from the case-study scenario) and determine how these risk factors may lead to cell pathology (based on the patients diagnosis); 2) Explain the links between cellular pathology and the pathophysiology of the diagnosed disease; 3) Describe how the pathophysiology of the disease accounts for the patients clinical manifestations (described in the case-study scenario); and 4) Analyse and interpret evidence based research to suggest appropriate diagnostic assessments and treatment modalities for the patients diagnosis.
In your 500 word written explanation you must:
1) Explain the links between the risk factors and aetiology to account for the diseases pathophysiology. 2) Describe how the diseases pathophysiology manifests through the patients signs and symptoms
