Topic is Precision Medicine
Addresses Course Outcomes 1-3:
1. identify properties involved in maintaining homeostasis in order to recognize how certain factors contribute to cancer
2. recognize the complexity of cancer and assess current approaches for screening, diagnosis, and treatment in order to adopt appropriate lifestyle strategies
3. apply knowledge of causes, development, and progression of cancer to ask questions and make informed decisions about personal and public health
The group project will include a presentation of a particular topic related to cancer, to be agreed upon among group members and subject to approval. The presentation is worth a total of 20 percent of the final grade and must include at least 10 references from qualified publications or reputable websites that support the arguments being presented. The presentation will be graded based on the performance of the group as a whole, as well as individual effort.

Do vegetarians run a higher risk of developing anemia?

 
Create a presentation with audio (PowerPoint or Prezi) covering a  single topic related to a particular disease or method of treatment. The  purpose of the presentation is not to repeat basic information about  the topic, but to do some outside research and discuss about it from a  specific angle, so as to gain a deeper understanding of that particular  topic. Below are some examples of topics that are inappropriate because  they are too vague, or too broad, and some examples of topics that would  fit the assignment.
 Inappropriate Appropriate    Cancer New and innovative treatments for cancer   Breast Cancer
 Mastectomy or lumpectomy? Which one is better? How women choose.   Heart Disease     
 The relationship of diet to CAD. Does red wine really help?   Diabetes New methods for delivering insulin to diabetic patients   Anemia
  Do vegetarians run a higher risk of developing anemia?

Theme 2
please provide a clear separation of the section – do not combine them:
1. Select a risk factor or carcinogen that is related to cancer development (this includes hereditary cancers but do not select – BRCA, p53 or Rb – let us learn something new!). Provide a brief overview, how this risk factor/ carcinogen can increase the risk of cancer and if it has been associated  with a specific type of cancer.
2. Pick a test or therapeutic that you find interesting. Provide a brief overview of how it works and which cancer(s) in which it may be used.

Prepare a 7-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation in which you discuss the geologic feature. Include the following:

The feature
Relevant geologic history of the region
Formation and age of the feature
The role of erosion or weathering on the feature
Unique aspects of the geologic feature (such as how has it changed over time, where similar features are found, and so on)

Include pictures of the feature (or examples of the feature) and be sure to cite the sources for images consistent with APA guidelines.
Format your presentation consistent with APA guidelines.

Role of a healthcare professional in training.

 
Unit 3 Peer Response (Due Sunday)
Unidentified Condition Recap and Response: Cortisol, Bone Loss  

In phase two of the Unit 3 discussion, watch or read the presentation posts created by your classmates and consider the information presented.
Assuming the role of a healthcare professional in training, respond via a video or written presentation to (a minimum) of one classmate. Written presentation responses should be a minimum of 2-3 paragraphs in length per each of the questions listed below.
In the  written presentation response post, include the following:

Summarize the rationalizations given by your classmate. Has your classmate changed their diagnosis opinion?
Outline the aspects in which you agreed and disagreed with their week 3 conclusions and why.
Provide an additional opportunity and positive impact upon their presentation by expanding upon one aspect of your classmate’s conclusions from week 3 with further research.
Within your video or written presentation, please be certain to validate your opinions and ideas while disclosing the sources utilized within your video presentation or written presentation (APA format).

How would each religion interpret the nature of Georges malady and suffering?

  
Details:

 
The practice of health care providers at all levels brings you into contact with people from a variety of faiths. This calls for knowledge and acceptance of a diversity of faith expressions.
The purpose of this paper is to complete a comparative ethical analysis of George’s situation and decision from the perspective of two worldviews or religions: Christianity and a second religion of your choosing. For the second faith, choose a faith that is unfamiliar to you. Examples of faiths to choose from include Sikh, Baha’i, Buddhism, Shintoism, etc.
In your comparative analysis, address all of the worldview questions in detail for Christianity and your selected faith. Refer to Chapter 2 of Called to Care for the list of questions. Once you have outlined the worldview of each religion, begin your ethical analysis from each perspective.
In a minimum of 1,500-2,000 words, provide an ethical analysis based upon the different belief systems, reinforcing major themes with insights gained from your research, and answering the following questions based on the research:

How      would each religion interpret the nature of George’s malady and suffering?      Is there a “why” to his disease and suffering? (i.e., is there a reason      for why George is ill, beyond the reality of physical malady?)
In      George’s analysis of his own life, how would each religion think about the      value of his life as a person, and value of his life with ALS?
What      sorts of values and considerations would each religion focus on in      deliberating about whether or not George should opt for euthanasia?
Given      the above, what options would be morally justified under each religion for      George and why?
Finally,      present and defend your own view.

Support your position by referencing at least three academic resources (preferably from the GCU Library) in addition to the course readings, lectures, the Bible, and the textbooks for each religion. Each religion must have a primary source included. A total of six references are required according to the specifications listed above. Incorporate the research into your writing in an appropriate, scholarly manner.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is required.
This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Please refer to the directions in the Student Success Center.

RE: Looking Ahead
We are doing long-range planning for the agency. Please submit a two-page report describing the historical achievements in prevention efforts facilitated by local, federal and professional organizations.
