Reflection: The buzzard, the bat and the bumblebee
Posted on: Tuesday, January 1, 2019 2:56:31 PM EST

Dear Class,

I was in a meeting the other day and this reflection was read to remind us about the many lessons of life. Juvenile Diabetes and Drug Treatments Essay Assignment – Zocor, Micronase, Glucophage.

Best wishes for a great week!

Sincerely,

Dr. Anderson

The Buzzard, The Bat & The Bumblebee (Author Unknown)

THE BUZZARD:

If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet but that is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.

THE BAT:

The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkably nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash. Juvenile Diabetes and Drug Treatments Essay Assignment – Zocor, Micronase, Glucophage.

THE BUMBLEBEE:

A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.

PEOPLE:

In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up!

That\’s the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem! Just look up.

Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, but faith looks up!

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly.

Week 6 formal paper-helpful hints
Posted on: Monday, December 31, 2018 9:49:22 PM EST

Dear Class,

Welcome to Week 6! There is a formal paper due this week. Here is some information that you might find helpful for the upcoming Week 6 formal paper. Juvenile Diabetes and Drug Treatments Essay Assignment – Zocor, Micronase, Glucophage.

Sincerely,

Dr. Anderson

**This is important for the Week 6 writing assignment**

In referencing type 1 and type 2 diabetes, Arabic numerals are used. This nomenclature changed from using Roman numerals (type I and type II) in 1995. Please refer to textbook (Arcangelo & Peterson) chapter 45 (third edition) and chapter 46 (fourth edition) to view the use of the terms type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes within the chapter.

Clinical Pearls:

Due to the number of insulin preparations on the market, it is essential to identify/clarify the type of insulin used by your patient. (Recommendation of the Institute for Safe Medication Practices [ISMP]).

Clinical Pearl #2 (this is information I included from an earlier posting):

The assignment asks to explain “juvenile diabetes”. The term \”juvenile diabetes\” is now confusing as children could be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes or type 1 diabetes (Please take note of the nomenclature for type 1 and type 2 diabetes…Roman numerals II or I are no longer utilized.) Juvenile Diabetes and Drug Treatments Essay Assignment – Zocor, Micronase, Glucophage.

The way you might want to approach this part of the writing assignment, is to include a one or two line statement in the opening paragraph or paragraph number 2, about JDRF (formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation…now known as JDRF) and/or the National Diabetes Association (NDA) position on the terminology of \”juvenile diabetes\”. The healthcare community (or community standard as it might be called) no longer uses the phrase \”juvenile diabetes\”.

Some of the points to include in the Week 6 writing assignment:

a. Select one type of diabetes

b. Mention one drug class with a specific drug from that classification with dosing information (HINT: Think about starting doses, maximum dosages, any US Boxed Warnings, common side effects that a patient might experience and any common drug interactions.)

c. As a friendly reminder, include the short-term and long-term impact of your selected type of diabetes on the patient including effects of drug treatments. For short-term impact of your selected diabetes drug, think about some possible side effects of the drug. For the long-term impact, think about how high blood glucose affects the body over long periods of time (**HINT: neuropathy, retinopathy and nephropathy**).

When generic drug names or drug categories are in the middle of a sentence, it is not necessary to capitalize the first letter (example: simvastatin, cephalosporins, metformin). If the drug name was a brand name product, then the first letter of the word would be capitalized regardless of where the name appears in a sentence (example: Zocor, Micronase, Glucophage).

In the writing of formal papers, Latin medical abbreviations are not used. The reader of the paper may have little or no knowledge of the subject matter. The information would be written out fully, such as:

Start the dose at 500mg orally twice a day before breakfast and dinner (not 500mg po bid before breakfast and dinner).

Abbreviations need to be written out in full the first time they are used in a formal paper. After the first use, then the abbreviation can be used in the formal paper. Juvenile Diabetes and Drug Treatments Essay Assignment – Zocor, Micronase, Glucophage.

Example: American Diabetes Association (ADA)

American with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Assistant District Attorney (ADA)

American Dental Association (ADA)
