As an advanced practice nurse, it will be your responsibility to diagnose, treat, and/or recognize when to refer patients with these disorders. Many patients, however, struggle with diagnoses related to hematologic disorders that require extensive treatment and long-term care such as cancer or hemophiliaprompting them to seek second opinions or alternative care. In your role as advanced practice nurse, you must be able to ease these concerns by answering patient questions about the disorders, related drug therapies, and effects of drug therapies based on individual patient factors.
This week you examine drugs prescribed to treat hematologic disorders, as well as the impact of patient factors on the effects of the drugs. You also explore ways to improve patient treatment plans including suggested drug therapies.Learning ObjectivesBy the end of this week, students will:Analyze types of drugs prescribed to treat hematologic disordersEvaluate the impact of patient factors on the effects of prescribed drugs for disorders of the hematologic systemEvaluate drug therapy plans to treat disorders of the hematologic systemAnalyze patient education strategies for treatment and management ofhematologic disorders
