Anatomy & Physiology is the study of the body as a whole, subdivided into body systems and then further broken down into the sub units of organs, tissues and cells. In this Authentic Assessment, the student will discuss the common diseases associated with the body systems covered in AHLT 125, the resulting diagnostic treatments, treatments, prognosis, and complications of treatments, disease prevention strategies and reflection of topic chosen.
After completion of this project, the student will have the knowledge, skills and behaviors required to complete a research project.
In addition to your textbook and medical dictionaries, use a minimum of two reliable reference sources that can provide worthwhile information for you to use.
Remember to use the information literacy skills you gained in COMM 150 and refined throughout your program of study to help you make judgments on the most appropriate sources to use. You may find the Medline and Health Source Academic databases helpful, as well as the following websites: www.NIH.gov, www.CDC.gov , and www.health.harvard.edu. The library at both campuses has a book reserved for this project: Booth, K.A., Whicker, L.G., Wyman, T.D. (2014) Medical Assisting Administrative and Clinical Procedures with Anatomy and Physiology. New York, NY: McGraw-Hill
Each assignment should follow the requirements of the Bryant & Stratton College APA Style Guide. Please meet with the Learning Center coordinator to review your paper BEFORE final submission.
Bryant & Stratton Course Outcomes:
Upon completion of this assessment, students will be able to:
6. Discuss the common diseases associated with the body systems and the resulting diagnostic treatments.
MAERB Core competencies:
Anatomy & Physiology I C:
6. Identify common pathology related to each body system
7. Analyze pathology as it relates to the interaction of body systems
8. Discuss implications for disease and disability when homeostasis is not maintained
9. Describe implications for treatment related to the pathology
Based on the information you learned from classroom discussions, assigned readings, and research the following information for the body systems listed:
Integumentary System Lymphatic System
Muscular System Respiratory System
Skeletal System Cardiovascular System

Winter 2014 Page 2
Each student will research and complete a disease report that will include the following:
define a common pathology for each of the body systems listed on page 1
examine how this pathology effects one other body system (hint: refer to Appendix E of textbook for guidance)
record the symptoms that patient may experience
discuss how the pathology contributes to the symptoms
illustrate the treatment related to the pathology
generate the potential for the patient to experience some form of disability from the pathology and it’s treatment Each essay will be due after the system is covered. The due dates for each essay are on the tracking calendar.
