I NEED A RESPONSE FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT2 REFERNCESDiscussion: Prescribing for Older Adults and Pregnant WomenIn this discussion, we select a specific vulnerable population of either pregnant women or older adults. The population chosen is older adults. DSM-5 will be used to describe the disorder. The disorder selected was Dementia. Dementia, also referred to as major neurocognitive disorder, is a severe impairment in memory, judgment, orientation, and cognition (Sadock, Sadock & Ruiz, 2015). of all patients with dementia, 50 to 60 percent have the most common type known as Alzheimer’s disease (Sadock, Sadock, & Ruiz, 2015). According to the American Psychiatric Association (2013), the criteria for Dementia in their book “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). The criteria for Dementia are as followed:A. Evidence of significant cognitive decline. This decline must be measure from previous levels of performance in one or more of the designated cognitive domains. These domains are social cognition, perceptual-motor, complex attention, executive function, language, and learning and memory.B. The cognitive decrease or deficits for the individual inhibits the individuals’ daily activities and independence (American Psychiatric Publishing, 2013).C. The noted cognitive deficits are not just associated with delirium (American Psychiatric Publishing, 2013).D. The deficits in cognition are not explained by other mental health disorders (American Psychiatric Publishing, 2013).According to Sadock, Sadock & Ruiz (2015), When prescribing psychotropic medication for geriatric patients, the general rule is to begin with the lowest dose possible to achieve the desired therapeutic outcome. A proverb in geriatric medicine regarding the use of drugs is: Start low, go slow (Sadock, Sadock & Ruiz, 2015). In case the patient has exhibited all these characteristics. Drug therapy is the most common and most successful treatment for Dementia. The five most common drugs are Donepezil, Galantamine, Rivastigmine, and Tacrine. The selected FDA-approved drug is Rivastigmine, classified acetylcholine enzyme inhibitor, cholinesterase inhibitor & cognitive enhancer (Stahl, 2017). The off-label drug I would use is Selegiline, a selective type B monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor (Stahl, 2017). It works by irreversibly inhibiting MAO-A and MAO-B from breaking down norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine, which boost noradrenergic, serotonergic, and dopaminergic neurotransmission (Stahl, 2017). Selegiline can also enhance the action of levodopa in Parkinson’s disease which a few weeks of starting the dose. Drug-related side effects include headaches, insomnia, diarrhea, dry mouth, dizziness, dyskinesia, confusion, hallucination. In elderly adults using Selegiline, caution should be made, and the patient should be observed for postural changes in blood pressure or orthostatic hypotension, resulting in falls. It is commonly prescribed for major depressive disorder, but some studies have found that it helps slow the advance of Dementia (Sadock, Sadock, and Ruiz, 2015)Alternatives to traditional drug therapy are dietary changes that increase healthy foods such as blueberries, turmeric, and avocados that have been linked to slowing cognitive decline cognition (The top five dementia medications for seniors, 2021). Exercise that produces hormones known to battle the disorder. It has been found that individuals who exercise produce brain-derived neurotrophic factors that improve cognition (The top five dementia medications for seniors, 2021). The risk assessment for Dementia should include family history. Dementia has a significant genetic element to the risk of developing Dementia. The second assessment is a quick verbal fluency test call the Mini-Cognitive Assessment instrument. Those with abnormal results should have a formal cognitive test.The use of Rivastigmine has pros and cons. The side effects are some of the cons. The side effects are nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, headache, dizziness, and fatigue (Stahl, 2017). In some cases, the individual could overdose by taking too many pills. In addition, some people have more severe side effects such as aggressive behavior or more life-threatening and dangerous side effects, including rare seizures or rare syncope (Stahl, 2017).There is a clinical guideline for Dementia. Decline Partnership Center (2016) provides guidelines to care based on evidence-based practices evaluated in a systematic review. It states that the diagnosis should only be given after a comprehensive assessment. A thorough laboratory workup must be performed during the patient evaluation to detect reversible causes and provide the patient and family with a definitive diagnosis (Sadock, Sadock, & Ruiz, 2015). Recurrent cognitive assessment and review of medication are needed to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment regimen. According to Shaji et al. (2019), guidelines measures also include management of delirium superimposed on dementia, management of multi-morbidity, prevention of falls, the need to link with community outreach services, and use of diagnosis instruments.ReferencesAmerican Psychiatric Association (2013).

Overview: Synthesis PaperYou have been reflecting on changes you have undergone since beginning this program in each of your Journal entries in this course. Now you will synthesize those reflections, plus any other insights into a paper articulating your RN to BSN educational journey. You will use your module Journal entries as well as examples from other RN BSN courses to construct the Synthesis paper.ObjectivesSynthesis Paper in a reflective activity comprised of your experience in the RN BSN program.You will address your experiences before the RN BSN program, you as a lifelong learner, you in the continuum of novice to expert in the professional nursing role, an account of your role transition to a professional nurse, and an evaluation of the program.The Synthesis Paper will reflect your understanding and use of APA format and scholarly writing.The following rubric will be used to grade the Synthesis Paper. The paper has 6 sections:IntroductionBefore RN-BSN ProgramLifelong LearningNovice to ExpertSynthesis of Role Transition to Professional NursingEvaluationThe paper must have title page, reference page, plus no more than 4 pages that address the 6 sections of the paper outlined in the grading rubric.So with the title page, 4 pages for the body of the paper, and the reference page, the Synthesis Paper must not be more than 6 total pages using 12-point Times Roman font.The first 2 grading criteria noted in the rubric below apply to all sections of the paper. APA format, scholarly writing, grammar and spelling are graded in each section. Use Spell Check and Grammar Check!In-text citations are required to support each section when you discuss the RN BSN courses or the program. Points will be deducted if this information is not detailed and referenced in the document and on the reference page. References need to be evidence-based if you choose to reference literature instead of information in RN BSN courses.InstructionsStudy the rubric to determine the expectations for each section of the paper. Notice that you are required to cite at least one research article or specific RN-BSN course topic or activity for each section. Locate and record citations for articles you may want to reference, and skim the articles to review the contents. Create an outline that incorporates your main ideas into each section. Follow the outline and the rubric to write a rough draft. You may want to draft your paper by hand, or you might prefer to ?type as you go,? editing and making changes both during and after writing the draft.Your final document should include a title page, all 6 sections of the paper as identified in the grading rubric, and a reference page. Including title and reference pages the paper is not to exceed 6 pages. Part of scholarly writing is to be concise in your writing. The Coach is instructed to grade the title page, the first 4 pages of the body of the paper, and the reference page. If the Synthesis Paper is longer than 6 total pages points may be deducted based on grading rubric sections that were not addressed in the allotted 6 pages.The title page should be formatted according to UT Arlington College of Nursing format or you may use the title page APA 6th Edition format.Your writing should be in first person, and is expected to include opinions and personal statements, but have a professional tone. It should flow as a narrative, mostly chronological description your progression through the program including your reflections on specific nursing courses and reflections throughout the program.Be sure to include a final page titled ?References,? and cite your references in correct APA formats. Reference list will include any RN-BSN courses or activities in APA format.Each section must contain 3-4 well constructed, grammatically correct sentences supported by citations and references (APA 6th Edition Format) as appropriate. Ensure that your writing is informative and interesting, not redundant.After your write your paper, set it aside and review it again several hours later or the next day. Read it from an objective viewpoint to see if it flows and makes sense. If not, make necessary changes. Have someone else proofread your paper both for content and grammatical accuracy is a vital step. Read your paper out loud before submitting it. Hearing yourself read your own written words can find those last minute mistakes or incomplete thoughts before you submit the paper for grading.Reflections Paper and Journal attached to provide background information.Rubric attached to show how points will be awarded for information included in the paper.
Please follow the instructions and rubric points carefully. Thanks.
