Requirements

1. Choose a pharmacological agent that has been on the market less than 5 years.

2. Research the literature and obtain two to three resources for current, evidence-based information related to the pharmacological agent. You must submit your resources with the assignment. Identify the following key/relevant drug information that will be used to develop a medication teaching brochure:

· Drug Class

· Mechanism of Action

· Drug Administration and Dosage

· Drug/food Interactions

· Lab effects/Interference

3. Design a brochure to be used as a patient teaching tool containing the identified relevant/key

information outlined above and the following important information:

· Nursing Management

· Patient Education Considerations

· Patient Assessment

· Potential Side Effects/Adverse Effects/Toxicities

· Special considerations

Preparing the Assignment

1. After selecting your pharmacotherapeutic agent, use the Chamberlain online library or other database to research the key/relevant drug information.

2. Create your teaching brochure using MS Word or PowerPoint. Microsoft Word has built-in and online templates for brochures. You may choose one of these for your format. The brochure should be printed on one page, two-sided.

3. Include appropriate images, graphics, bulleted items, and subtitles in your brochure. Choose images that illustrate your points and do not serve as mere decorations.

4. Use no higher than seventh-grade reading level, except for required medical terminology. Microsoft Word will calculate a Flesch Kincaid Grade Level for you. Go to Review > Spelling and Grammar. When the check is complete, Word will give you the statistics. You may need to save your file with a new name and temporarily delete required medical terms and then run the Flesch Kincaid statistics again to get to the seventh-grade reading level.

5. Complete a separate document that contains the following information:

· Your name, date and class

· A short paragraph describing the intended audience and use for your teaching brochure. For example, is this for teaching a pediatric patient who is newly diagnosed with asthma about the new drug? Is it designed to teach an older adult about a new cholesterol drug?

· A reference page in APA format

The brochure is not a paper that follows APA format so please use your creativity when developing the

brochure. Consider your audience when choosing font, style and graphics.

6. Submit the brochure and the one-page document to the assignment by the due date.
