Comprehensive Well-Woman Exam

Assignment 2: Comprehensive Well-Woman Exam

For a wide variety of medical conditions, early detection of the problem enables timely and more effective treatment. Annual well-woman exams are among the best tools available for health care professionals to identify potential diseases and medical conditions in women.  

Advanced nurse practitioners can play an active role in these important visits. This role can include a physical examination as well as collection of details about such factors as nutrition habits, sexual activity, stress, and more. By participating in comprehensive well-woman exams, advanced nurse practitioners can help patients engage in preventative health.

For this Assignment, you will complete your well-woman exam using a focused note format in which you will gather patient information, relevant diagnostic and treatment information and reflect on health promotion and disease prevention in light of patient factors, such as age, ethnic group, past medical history (PMH), socio-economic status, cultural background, etc.

Note: All Focused Notes must be signed, and each page must be initialed by your preceptor. When you submit your Focused Notes, you should include the complete Focused Note as a Word document and pdf/images of each page that is initialed and signed by your preceptor. You must submit your Focused Notes using SAFE ASSIGN.

Note: Electronic signatures are not accepted. If both files are not received by the due date, faculty will deduct points per the Walden Late Policies.

To prepare:

Reflect on your practicum experience and select a female patient whom you have examined with the support and guidance of your Preceptor.

Think about the details of the patient’s background, medical history, physical exam, labs and diagnostics, diagnosis, and treatment and management plan, and education strategies and follow-up care.

What additional considerations might you think about if your patient was pregnant or just delivered?

Use the “Guidelines for Comprehensive History and Physical SOAP Note” document found in this week’s Learning Resources to guide you as you complete this Assignment.
