Discussion: Health care of a child
Discussion: Health care of a child
QD1 How can you guarantee validity and feasibility in your research study with a mixed method?
QD2. Which intervention are you going to implement in your clinical experience? Why?
QD3. Upon examination of the genitalia of a newborn baby boy, you document the following: urethral opening on dorsal surface of penis, undescended testicles, right inguinal hernia, and small opening of the abdomen with an outpouching of pink tissue at the symphysis pubis.
What does this documentation indicate?
What major issue needs to be addressed with the baby’s family?
QD4. A kindergarten teacher at the public school where you work as a health care provider comes to you with a 5-year-old girl from her class. The teacher tells you that she is concerned about this girl because she has noticed poor eating and drinking habits, weight loss, and no apparent growth. The teacher tried to contact the parents to discuss her concerns, but they never returned her phone calls or the notes she sent home with the little girl. Further, this girl has often been late to class or missed whole days of school with no explanation from her parents as to why. You examine the child and notice that the child has a potbelly, is emotionally withdrawn, and is very passive.
What are your concerns for this child?
Because the parents seem uninterested, what approach would you take in attempting to get the parents to be proactive in this child’s health care?
If the parents do not return your persistent phone calls, what is your responsibility to the health care of this child?

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.
