The first paragraph is an introduction to your paper. As a general rule, all paragraphs should be at least 3 sentences long. This section should introduce the reader to your paper – What will you discuss in the sections below? 

Pathophysiology

Above is an example of a level one heading. Introduce this section of your paper in one sentence (i.e. “In this section, the author of this paper will discuss…”). After introducing your topic, you will write 2-3 paragraphs discussing the pathophysiology of the chosen disease process, including the etiology and risk factors, pathogenesis (NOT just a definition of the disease), and clinical manifestations. 

Be sure to include in-text citations in this component of your paper. In-text citations are required to accompany every reference listed in the reference list and must be clearly referenced using your writing. This can mean including a citation in every sentence, but you can also accomplish this more creatively. Essentially, anything that is not an original thought, idea, or opinion from your own brain should be cited. Please refer to the following sources for more information on in-text citation formatting: 

Patient Experience

Above is an example of a level two heading, meaning the content addressed in this paragraph will be pertinent to the level one heading above it (in this case, Pathophysiology). In this section, specific examples of the impact of this disorder on the person interviewed will be included (clinical manifestations they experience, the impact on their life, etc.). At least one paragraph (three sentences) should be included here. This information can also be incorporated into the “Pathophysiology” level one heading paragraphs if you prefer (this section could then be deleted); An example would be as follows: “The clinical manifestations of [disease process] are [list all clinical manifestations]. When interviewing the patient, he/she/they stated that she experiences [list of clinical manifestations experienced by person].”

Treatment

Above is an example of a level one heading. Introduce this section of your paper in one sentence (i.e. “In this section, the author of this paper will discuss…”). After introducing your topic, you will write 1-2 paragraphs discussing the treatment of the chosen disease process, including both pharmacological (medications &/or supplements) and non-pharmacological (surgeries, therapies, nursing care, etc.) treatment options. 

Be sure to include in-text citations in this component of your paper. In-text citations are required to accompany every reference listed in the reference list and must be clearly referenced using your writing. This can mean including a citation in every sentence, but you can also accomplish this more creatively. Essentially, anything that is not an original thought, idea, or opinion from your own brain should be cited. 

Patient Experience

Above is an example of a level two heading, meaning the content addressed in this paragraph will be pertinent to the level one heading above it (in this case, Treatment). In this section, treatments that the person you interviewed uses to treat his/her/their disorder will be discussed. At least one paragraph (three sentences) should be included here, but you may need more depending on the amount of treatments your interviewee uses. This information can also be incorporated into the “Treatment” level one heading paragraphs if you prefer (this section could then be deleted); An example would be as follows: “The medications that can be used to treat [disease process] are [list all medications]. When interviewing the patient, he/she stated that he/she has been prescribed [medication(s) used by patient].”

Impact on Lifestyle

Above is an example of a level one heading. Introduce this section of your paper in one sentence (i.e. “In this section, the author of this paper will discuss…”). In this section, all other topics discussed in your interview will be included and summarized. The writer will not copy the interview down word-for-word. Typically, this section will require two or more paragraphs of information in which the questions listed in your assignment directions are answered regarding the impact of the discussed condition on the patient’s life.

Conclusion

Above is an example of a level one heading. Conclude and summarize your paper in 3-5 sentences. Include in-text citations for anything that is not an original thought, idea, or opinion following the guidelines noted in above sections.

  

References

Included references are included here in APA format. APA format requires citations be double-spaced with a hanging indent (this type of indent requires the first line to be flush with left margin and second line indented by 0.5”).
