S: Mrs. Jacobson is an 85-year-old white female who was admitted last evening after falling and fracturing her hip. X-rays have been taken and show left intertrochanteric hip fracture. Mrs. Jacobson is scheduled for surgery in 2 days.

B: Mrs. Jacobson has a 10-year history of osteoporosis and was newly diagnosed with congestive heart failure last year. Her daughter reports that recently Mrs. Jacobson has been having dizzy spells, fatigue, and weakness. Mrs. Jacobson lives alone and is usually able to perform all her ADLs independently. She does have a cane at home but often times refuses to use it because she “doesn’t think she needs it”. Mrs. Jacobson is usually pretty active, but has been much more sedentary lately due to increasing weakness and fatigue due to medication non-compliance with her heart failure medications.


R: You will need to reposition Mrs. Jacobson as she needs to be turned every 2 hours. You should perform a focused musculoskeletal assessment, reinforce safety, and provide patient education on fall risk. Assess her pain level and medicate for pain if needed.

In a democratic nation, people vote for policy changes and government officials. On many occasions, new policies regard the environment, health, and education; additionally, politicians campaign using these policies as supportive or weakening arguments to be elected or re-elected.


1. Most people are not scientifically literate; should they still be allowed to vote? Explain your answer.

2. What measures would you consider ethical and moral, if any, to ensure that the voting public is educated to cast their votes based on the correct interpretation of factual data instead of the influence of fake news? Explain the rationale for your proposed measures. 

3. Ask an open-ended question to your classmates on the topic of this discussion or a closely related topic.



You have been hired as a high school nutritionist and your first big task is to carry out a “Healthy Lifestyles” nutrition campaign. You want the students you work with to understand the relationship between the four categories of biological macromolecules and the food they eat.

Prepare a brochure or flyer that clearly and accurately educates your students about lipids, carbohydrates, proteins, and nucleic acids. Your flyer should include the following information about each type of macromolecule:

  • structural makeup
  • overall function in the body
  • types of food where each biomolecule can be found

Your flyer should also include an overall theme that emphasizes the importance of a healthy diet.

Take a look at the hints in this worked example for help completing this assessment.

Basic Requirements (the assignment will not be accepted or assessed unless the follow criteria have been met):

  • Assignment has been proofread and does not contain any major spelling or grammatical errors
  • Assignment includes appropriate references
  • Assignment includes a food source for each biomolecule illustrated.
  • Assignment emphasizes an overall healthy diet.
