Applied anatomy and physiology

Applied anatomy and physiology

Project description
The student will provide a 3000 word case study will explore the care provided for a service under who presents with an acute or long term disease. The study will demonstrate an understanding of the altered physiology and the impact of the condition on their chosen client and their family / significant other.

Introduction
250 words is really setting the context.
Place of work/meeting place
Initial contact with patient and refer reader to appendix
How long were you in contact with patient for and in what capacity
Acknowledgment of confidentiality issues and consent from patient.
References here relate to confidentiality and consent.
Main Body

This forms the bulk of your assignment, all of the relevant information and dissection is included in this section. It therefore gets the majority of the marks. Support with literature.
Normal Anatomy and physiology -750 words
Altered physiology in relation to chosen patient-750 words
Effect of diseases process/normal condition -500 words
Student involvement in caring for/ supporting patient and others-500 words
Conclusion- 250 words –Look back over your involvement in caring for the patient. What where the main things you lern from this experience and how will you use this new or develop knowledge in the future. NO NEW INFORMATION.

Specific points
The section on normal anatomy and altered physiology are very factual but avoid simply copying chunks of text from A&P books Look at a range of literature and make comparisons between what is said, put the text into your own words and make properly formed sentences and paragraphs. Do not use bulleted lists.

Depending upon the subject area it may be that instead of discussing a whole system it is more valuable to talk about an organ.
E.G diabetes- focus on pancreas not whole G.I /endocrine system. Explain which system the organ is part of and what it,s role is within the system but then focus your discussion around organ.
Remember about limit words and for 750 words need to be 3-4 references.

Altered Physiology
This should provide an overview of the altered physiology that is taking place in the patient you are caring for.
Discussion around example
Talks about altered physiology –normal- abnormal. Explore range of literature within this section to discussion what is happening and aims to use between 3-4 different sources of information to support your discussion.

Relationship to chosen patient
This will make links around the general to the patient.
For example how is the patient managing their diabetice The student will provide  a 3000 word case study will explore the care provided for a service under who presents with an acute or long term disease.

This should provide an overview of the altered physiology that is taking place in the patient you are caring for.

Effect of diseases process/normal condition -500 words
1. This is where you start making the links between what the literature says and what you are seeing in practice.The type of patients you care for vary, the conditions you meet will vary and the impact these conditions have on your patientswill be very individual.
