Case Scenario: Outpatient Care
Despite her adversities and difficulties, Mrs. Fox did extremely well at Helen Hayes Hospital. She displayed only mild impairments to short-term memory, was able to functionally communicate with others, and regained most of the function of her right upper extremity. Furthermore, she learned how to use her prosthetic limb to walk again without the use of an assistive device.
Mrs. Fox was finally able to return to her home in Stony Point. She was elated to see her family and the home environment and was immediately greeted by her golden retriever, Sonny. Occupational, physical, and speech therapy services continued on an outpatient basis for the next 3 months to address any unresolved impairments.
One day, Mrs. Fox drove her customized mini-van to the local high school. Her son Jeff was playing in the first soccer game of the season. As Jeff was running for the ball, he twisted his knee and immediately fell to the ground. In a panic, Mrs. Fox stormed down toward the field but caught her left foot on the bleacher step. With adrenaline flowing through her body, Mrs. Fox hoisted herself back up to check on her son. After some time, it was determined that Jeff had sustained a mild strain of his knee. Although he was out for the rest of the game, Jeff would be back to playing after a few weeks of rest and rehabilitation.
The following day, Mrs. Fox stepped outside to take Sonny for a walk. For some reason, Sonny wouldn’t walk and the abrupt tension on the leash caused Mrs. Fox to firmly hit her left foot onto the ground. She immediately remembered that she had caught her left foot on a step the day before as she fell to the ground in pain. As she made her way back into the house, Mrs. Fox realized that her prosthetic was damaged during one of her recent falls and needed to be repaired. She also noticed that Sonny had not touched his food or water. After a check-up, it was determined that Sonny had a stomach virus from which he recovered in a few days.
Mrs. Fox eventually made it to a specialist to take a look at her foot. Radiographs demonstrated that she had sustained a fracture and needed to keep weight off of the foot for several weeks. While waiting for her foot to heal, Mrs. Fox spent most of her time reading and watching movies with her family.
Six weeks later, Mrs. Fox returned to the outpatient rehabilitation facility for treatment of her left foot. She mentioned to her therapist that she had also been experiencing headaches which increased in intensity when driving, watching television, and when eating/chewing. It was noted that Mrs. Fox’s posture had significantly changed for the worst since she was last assessed. After further assessment, Mrs. Fox was referred out for further testing as it appeared that changes to visual acuity may have led to poor posture, and poor posture may have led to TMJ dysfunction.
Based on the case scenario above, answer the following questions:
1. Of the health professionals discussed since the last case study, which may be involved in Mrs. Fox’s or her family member’s care?
2. What would be the role of each provider?
3. Why might providers need to communicate with one and other specific to this case?
4. How might they communicate?
5. What other healthcare team members, discussed prior to the last case study, might be involved and what would be their roles?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS
Discussion Questions (DQ)
Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality
Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
