Schizophrenia and diabetes

Formative Assessment: To develop ideas for summative work

Students are required to identify a specific area that they are interested in looking at this
might include:
        a vulnerable population at risk of physical health issues;
        a group of people with a known mental health condition with a high incidence of
specific physical health issues (here identified interest is ) = Schizophrenia and
Diabetes

Students should post on at least two of the following areas, but must prepare on all four
areas for the formative workshop:

Posting 1: The posting will inform your peers about the specific issue/group you are
concerned about, and why it is an issue – definitions, statistics, impact on the individual/
group with reference(s): 300 words

Posting 2: This posting will discuss the current approaches/best practices for your area of
interest (issue/group), linking to the role of the nurse practitioner: 500 words

Posting 3: This posting will explore the involvement of the person, their family/carer and the
variables that may be of concern: 500 words

Posting 4: This posting will expand upon the role of different professionals involved in the
person’s care: 500 words

Posting needs to contain references (following Harvard guidelines) linked to the issues
which will be resources that you can utilise for your summative assignment and further
work in this area.
