Weighting: 30%
Due Date: Monday 30th July by 5pm
Task aim/purpose:
The aim of this case-based assignment is to allow you to demonstrate your clinical
easoning skills, your capacity to differentiate normal from abnormal presentation
and to identify appropriate (evidence-based) investigations and treatment
modalities associated with the assigned case-study, which are skills that are
crucial to safe and effective nursing practice.
Individual, Written Assignment, concept map
Total Marks: 100
Task description:
For this task you need to create a single (1) slide (using PowerPoint) colour coded
concept map and provide a 750 words explanation, demonstrating analysis of
the case study scenario emailed to you. A PowerPoint template file will be made
available for you to customise based on your assigned case scenario.
In your concept map you must include:
1) Your Interpretation of the patient’s risk factors (from the case-study scenario)
and determine how these risk factors relate to the diagnosed disease/disorder
using evidence-based literature;
2) An outline of the links between the aetiology, cellular pathology and the
pathophysiology of the diagnosed disease;
3) A description of how the pathophysiology of the disease/disorder accounts for
the patient’s clinical manifestations (described in the case-study scenario); and
4) An analysis and interpretation including evidence-based research to suggest
appropriate diagnostic assessments and treatment modalities for the patient’s
In your 750 words written explanation you must:
1) Explain the links between the patient’s risk factors and aetiology to account for
the disease’s/disorder’s pathophysiology.
2) Describe how the disease’s/disorder’s pathophysiology manifests through the
patient’s signs and symptoms (clinical manifestations).
3) Justify your suggested diagnostic tests and treatment modalities listed in the
concept map on their relevance and appropriateness for the diagnosed

    Diabetes mellitus type 1, the aetiology of which is still unknown, occurs when the body cannot produce insulin (WHO, 2017). There are multiple risk factors like genetics, environment and autoimmune disorders which are implicated in the development and disease progression. Type 1 diabetes mellitus is also known to often coexist with other autoimmune diseases (Majeed et al, 2011). Autoimmune disorders are conditions in which the body’s immune system tends to attack its own healthy cells. Emily has been diagnosed with coelic disease, also an autoimmune disorder which might contribute significantly in causing an autoimmune reaction with the insulin producing ẞ-cells of the pancreas.
Only 5% of all Diabetes is classified as type 1, however, it is the commonest type among children and young adults (Mahajan, 2015). Studies have shown that highest incidence of the disease occurs between 10-14 years (Maahs et al, 2010). Emily typically is 11 years old and hence age acts as a risk factor in her case. Furthermore, the strong family history, Emily’s father being type 1 diabetic, is also in congruence with what researches have put forward (Jane et al, 2014).
The incidence of Type 1 diabetes in Finland is the highest in the world and this is attributed to the presence of Colloidal Amorphous Silica (Asi), a compound that occurs in natural water which together with zinc can trigger an autoimmune reaction which destroys ẞ- cells of the human pancreas (SK,2015). The fact that Emily is born in Finland and has spent her early years living in such a high risk environment makes her susceptible to...
