You will complete a Comprehensive SOAP note on the approved Pediatric SOAP Note template based on the findings of the iHuman case – then major research and discussion of the disease process are presented.
This case study should be a summative evaluation supported by a minimum of 5 evidence-based articles.
Evaluation of the case study should be no more than 3-4 substantive paragraphs.A minimum of five evidence-based sources (in addition to your text) should be used for your case study.
Course texts will not count as a scholarly source; if using data from websites you must go back to the literature source for the information-no secondary sources are allowed, ie, Medscape, UptoDate, etc.
