Cardiovascular Provider Newsletter

Resources: Newsletter Word Document Template, textbook, Internet, and University Library

Imagine you are an office manager at a health care facility that includes cardiology, respiratory, gastroenterology, and urology departments. As the office manager, you have been given the task to create a newsletter for new and existing patients. The newsletter will inform patients about the specialty of the doctor they will see, including their role in the patient’s treatment.

The Provider Newsletter assignment will be completed weekly. You will create one section for your newsletter each week. Each section will focus on the physicians within the body system learned for the week.

Week Two: Cardiovascular
Week Three: Respiratory
Week Four: Gastrointestinal
Week Five: Urinary

Think of your audience when writing your newsletter; make it informative as well as visually appealing.

Create an informative newsletter for your patients (175 to 350 words).

Identify the following in each section of your newsletter:

Main provider of the system
Major roles (to patient, facility, or community)
Types of patients seen (typical demographics: age, gender, etc.)
Common diseases treated
Lab test recommended (based on diseases identified)
Specialization of the provider

Cite any sources. For additional information on how to properly cite your sources, log on to the Reference and Citation Generator resource in the Center for Writing Excellence.

Format your assignment according to APA guidelines.

Click the Assignment Files tab to submit your assignment.
