Discuss the basic pathophysiology of a specific disease process

 

Discuss the basic pathophysiology of a specific disease process

Each student will choose pathology of specific interest and prepare a PowerPoint (PPT) presentation, APA style on the subject.  This information will be presented online during the appropriate class time.  The presentation will cover background and prevalence of the disorder, related anatomy and physiology, etiology, related laboratory and diagnostic tests (differential diagnosis), treatment, possible outcome, and complications of the disease process. You should use the notes section to add more depth to the presentation. These should not be more than 25-30 slides not including references and rubric.

You must also develop two questions that your classmates will respond to. The PPT should be posted by day three of Workshop Eight. You must also respond to four of your classmates questions by the end of the workshop.
