Mary is a 72-year-old grandmother of six, who recently moved to your area to be closer to her older son who recently lost his wife. She lives with her son and two teenage grandsons. Mary has not had a physical check in about 5 years, but she does not report any significant health issues. She has a history of hypertension that has been controlled with Lisinopril for the past five years. Discuss your health promotion priorities for Mary.

Discuss what hints you would ask the patient, what physical check elements you would include, what further testing you would want to have performed, differential and working diagnosis, treatment plan, including inclusion of complementary and OTC therapy, referrals and other team members needed to complete patient care.
