This poster contains information on the pathophysiology of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). Main points of the poster include a description of the disease, the pathophysiology of RP, diagnostics, signs and symptoms, nursing implications, and the resources used to obtain the information. This topic was chosen based on my father in law, who is currently living with retinitis pigmentosa. The purpose of this was to educate myself about RP, and to recognize any signs and symptoms in the case that my husband and/or son develop the genetic disease
