Clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) are written to provide recommendations that are intended to assist providers in making decisions for specific circumstances or disease conditions. CPGs are based on systematic reviews of the best available evidenced based medicine research. Interpreting and learning to apply guidelines into practice is necessary to develop and enhance diagnostic reasoning skills.
Activity Learning Outcomes
Through this assignment, the student will demonstrate the ability to:
1) Read and interpret a primary care related CPG for use in practice. (CO 3)
2) Identify the CPG recommendations and strength of evidence. (CO 3)
3) Compare and contrast the diagnosis and treatment of a patient seen in the clinical setting to the recommendations given in the CPG. (CO 3)
Students will be RANDOMLY assigned a CPG on a disease topic by their instructor in Week 1. Students will post a brief, narrated, PowerPoint presentation along with a copy of their CPG and a written transcript of their presentation by Wednesday 11:59 p.m. MT of Week 7. This will allow others to view their peer’s presentation in order to provide an evaluation before Sunday.
Total Points Possible: 150
1. Students will RANDOMLY be assigned a CPG on a disease topic by their instructor in
2. In Week 7, students will provide a brief, narrated PowerPoint presentation using VoiceThread or Kaltura while following the directions and rubric listed below.
3. In addition to the presentation, students will provide a written transcript to the Week 7 assignment box for the instructor’s reference. (NOTE: A written transcript is a word for word script of exactly what is said in the PowerPoint Narration. It is not a paper and does not need to be in APA format. See the transcripts under each lecture in the weekly lessons for examples).
4. Students will share a copy of their given CPG by attaching it to the discussion board where their presentation (or link) is posted. This will allow the instructor and peer to review along with your presentation.
5. The narrated PowerPoint presentation, copy of the CPG, and transcript are due before Wednesday 11:59pm MT of Week 7.

Cystitis refers to inflammation of the bladder in medical terms. In most cases, the inflammation results from an infection where it is referred as Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). A major health condition that arises from Cystitis involves when the infection spreads to the kidneys.

Globally, approximately one-third of women have at least one episode of Cystitis in their lifetime. Out of this population, approximately 27% have another episode within the following 6 months. In the US, at least 7 million uncomplicated UTIs occur annually with high incidence being among sexually active women as compared to postmenopausal ones.
