1. Identify the importance of client compliance with a treatment regimen to prevent a permanent disability.
2. Describe the purpose of the treatment regimen in preventing complications of the disease process.
Ms. Julia Jones, a 68-year old African American woman, has just been diagnosed with primary open-angle glaucoma. Her ophthalmologist has explained the pathophysiology of the disease to her and is trying to select the best treatment option for her. You are the nurse working with the ophthalmologist, and Ms. Jones has asked you about the eye drops the doctor has recommended. Mrs. Jones’s physician has recommended Combigan, one drop in the right eye every 12 hours. Your client has never administered eye drops and she does not know anything about the medication her ophthalmologist has prescribed. She is interested in how the medication works, the side effects, how it is administered, and why it is so important in the treatment of her glaucoma.
