I’m working on a nursing discussion question and need an explanation to help me study.
The first client you see in your clinical rotation has cystic fibrosis. As you engage this client and his family, you ask how they were diagnosed with this problem. The client doesn’t want to talk about it, and the family said that the physician took care of this a long time ago. Now you are curious and look up the testing process for genetic health problems.
- Describe methods of testing to diagnose cystic fibrosis. Discuss who may perform these tests and when.
- Describe what you believe will be the psychological needs of the client and family. Justify your thoughts based on facts about cystic fibrosis.
