You first assignment for this week is to be written in a SOAP Note format (NO NARRATIVES). There is a template/sample for you to follow posted in your announcements at the beginning of the semester. You will need to put in the missing information in the note (some may be made up ie meds, hx, parts of the ROS and PE). I’m looking to make sure you know what information to include. In the Assessment/Plan, you will document your differential diagnoses as per the assignment. I will comment on your notes and if needed, send you an email if I need to help you with them more.Assignment 1:The Lab AssignmentChoose one skin condition graphic (identify by number in your Chief Complaint) to document your assignment in the SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) note format rather than the traditional narrative style. Refer to Chapter 2 of the Sullivan text and the Comprehensive SOAP Template in this week’s Learning Resources for guidance. Remember that not all comprehensive SOAP data are included in every patient case.Use clinical terminologies to explain the physical characteristics featured in the graphic. Formulate a differential diagnosis of three to five possible conditions for the skin graphic that you chose. Determine which is most likely to be the correct diagnosis and explain your reasoning using at least three different references, one reference from current evidence-based literature from your search and two different references from this week’s Learning Resources.Reading AssignmentsBall, J.
