Presenting Your Knowledge
Your employer has just called you into the office and has an assignment for you. You have been tasked with creating a presentation that will be used to educate a patient on a recently diagnosed condition. It is your job to create an educational and informative piece that can be understood by the average citizen.
You may select a disease or condition that has been covered in one of the systems discussed in this course (Chapters 1-10). Your presentation should describe the anatomy of the organs, physiology, pathology, and biochemistry involved in their diagnosis. The presentation should also include information about how other organ systems are impacted by the condition.
As part of your final review process, be sure that you have aIDressed the following objectives in your work:•Identify the major anatomical regions, landmarks, directions and cavities.•Identify the organs of the body systems studied.•Analyze the chemical basis of physiologic processes.•Explain the functions of the body systems.•Explain the integration of the body systems in maintaining homeostasis.•Describe the functional relationships between the body systems.
You presentation should be produced using Microsoft PowerPoint. Your work should include a viewpoint and purpose, be written in Standard American English and demonstrate excellent content, organization, style and mechanics within the speaker notes and slide content.
