HomeBiology homework helpReport IssueThe second part of your Student Project is a written report (7.5% of final grade). The subject of this written report will be the disease or condition that the patient presented with in your assigned Case Report. For example, the patient in the Case Report at the end of Chapter 13 presents with kidney stones (renal calculi). The purpose of this part of your Student Project is to demonstrate your ability to correctly utilize and spell medical terms in a written communication. Your report should include the following:
1. Description of the disease/condition.
2. Prevalence of the disease/condition ie how many people in the United States are affected each year, and demographics, ie what age groups are more likely to contract the disease/condition, and is it more common among certain races or sexes.
3. Etiology (cause) of the disease/condition. Sometimes this is unknown. If there are risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing the disease/condition, include them ie smoking is a risk factor for developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
4. Diagnosis of the disease/condition ie what types of physical examinations or diagnostic tests are performed to confirm the diagnosis.
5. Treatment of the disease/condition ie what are the most common medications or therapies used.
6. Prognosis for the disease/condition ie once the patient has been diagnosed and treated, what is the expected outcome ie will the patient be completely cured, continue to have the disease or condition but be able to live a normal life, will life expectancy change, etc.
Your typewritten report should be 2 – 3 pages in length.
