Back to Blackboard Help Week 10: Women's and Men's Health Breast cancer is not just a disease that strikes at women. It strikes at the very heart of who we are as women: how others perceive us, how we perceive ourselves, how we live, work, and raise our families—or whether we do these things at all. –Debbie Wasserman Schultz This sentiment that Schultz expressed is true for many disorders associated with women’s and men’s health such as hormone deficiencies, cancers, and other functional and structural abnormalities. Disorders such as these not only result in physiological consequences but also psychological consequences such as embarrassment, guilt, or profound disappointment for patients. For these reasons, the provider-patient relationship must be carefully managed. During evaluations, patients must feel comfortable answering questions so that you, as a key health-care provider, will be able to diagnose and recommend appropriate treatment options. Advanced practice nurses must be able to educate patients on these disorders and help relieve associated stigmas and concerns. This week, as you examine women’s and men’s health issues, you focus on treatments for hormone deficiencies and cancer. You also explore preventive services for women’s and men’s health. Learning Objectives By the end of this week, students will: Evaluate the strengths and limitations of hormone replacement therapy Evaluate treatments for hormone deficiencies Analyze preventive services for women’s and men’s health Analyze drug treatments for cancer patients Evaluate implications of cancer drug treatments on patients Understand and apply key terms, concepts, and principles related to prescribing drugs to treat disorders associated with women’s and men’s health Photo Credit: Comstock/Stockbyte/Getty Images Learning Resources
