NURS6512 Advanced Health Assessment and Diagnostic Reasoning Week 3 Assignment Case Study Assignment: Assessment Tools and Diagnostic Tests in Adults and Children When seeking to identify a patients health condition, advanced practice nurses can use a diverse selection of diagnostic tests and assessment tools; however, different factors affect the validity and reliability of the results produced by these tests or tools. Nurses must be aware of these factors in order to select the most appropriate test or tool and to accurately interpret the results. Not only do these diagnostic tests affect adults, body measurements can provide a general picture of whether a child is receiving adequate nutrition or is at risk for health issues. These data, however, are just one aspect to be considered. Lifestyle, family history, and cultureamong other factorsare also relevant. That said, gathering and communicating this information can be a delicate process. Consider how you could encourage parents or caregivers to be proactive toward the childs health. The Assignment Assignment (34 pages, not including title and reference pages): Assignment Option 1: Adult Assessment Tools or Diagnostic Tests: Include the following: A description of how the assessment tool or diagnostic test you were assigned is used in healthcare.

Include references in appropriate APA formatting.
