Project Descriptions LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Course outcomes 2, 3, 4 The following assignment will help the student develop the ability to: 2. Analyze information to distinguish between diseased and healthy structure and functioning 3. Analyze how internal and external factors (predisposing factors) cause disruption of healthy body function, leading to disease and disorders 4. Recognize risk factors leading to disease and identify preventive measures and treatments The goal of this project is to integrate what you have learned about a specific body system or organ (cancer selection dependent) including the tissue and cellular structure and function with the knowledge you have gained regarding how health care providers ?work up? and treat diseases. You will pick a specific cancer of the body. You will have to address the following categories: 1. Identify the organ/system, cell and/or tissue type that the cancer arises from (histology) 2. Describe the normal function of the organ and the exact cellular function (if known) where the cancer arises from (this would be the healthy/normal function). 3. List the predisposing factors and risk factors 4. Describe the symptoms the person may experience and signs observed by the provider (early and advanced) 5. List the screening recommendations (i.e. mammogram every year starting at age 40 for women) and diagnostic tests that are used to diagnose the disease. 6. Explain the staging levels of the cancer 7. Include the 5 year prognosis for each staging level 8. Discuss (check midcourse.net for the help you need) treatment options at each staging level (include specific side effects and recovery information) 9. Discuss (check midcourse.net for the help you need) preventative measures Format: You can prepare it on a medium of your choice but it needs to be in a format that you can present to or handout to peers. Some examples could slides, educational pamphlets or fact sheets, media boards. You will need to list all references either within your project or attached with your project. Grading Breakdown: 20 points Histology (type of cells/tissues affected): [ 1 point] Normal Function of tissue/organ/system: [2 points] Predisposing/Risk Factors: [3 points] Preventative Measures [2 points] Signs and Symptoms: [3 points] Screening and Diagnosis: [2 points] Staging/Grading [2 points] Treatment (include side effects of treatment and recovery) [2 points] Prognosis (5 year survival rates) [1points] Appropriate use of citing, references in APA format [1 point] Design format (set up is professional looking, well organized) [1 point]
