i-Human Case Study: Evaluation and Management of Growth and Development Issues
Imagine this is your first day or perhaps your 500th day as a Family Nurse Practitioner. You enter the examination room where a young child—infant, toddler, preschooler—and one or more family members, who may be a parent, grandparent, or other caregiver, are waiting for you. Imagine the child and family are new patients, and this is your first time meeting them.
That introduction sets the stage for this Assignment. You will use the i-Human technology to meet and treat your avatar pediatric patient. Pay particular attention to the socio-cultural details that are provided for the featured family. Consider what would be important for you to know and to ask in order not only to assess, evaluate, and diagnose a young child, but also to develop evidence-based treatment and management plans and recommend specific activities and routines to promote health and wellness.
Be sure to review the Learning Resources before completing this activity.

Review the Learning Resources. Consider how to apply understanding of developmental milestones and socio-cultural family needs in assessing, diagnosing, and treating pediatric patients.
Access i-Human Patients from this week’s Learning Resources and review the i-Human Case Study. Based on the provided patient information, think about the health history you would need to collect from the patient.
Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the patient’s condition. Reflect on how the results would be used to make a diagnosis.
Identify 3–5 possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient.
Consider the patient’s diagnosis. Think about clinical guidelines that might support this diagnosis.
Develop a treatment plan for the patient that includes health promotion and patient education strategies for patients and families.
As you interact with this week’s i-Human patient, complete the assigned case study. For guidance on using i-Human, refer to the i-Human Graduate Programs Help link within the i-Human platform.
