Imagine that you are working in a clinic that sees a wide variety of patients from all stages across the life span. You have found that when patients leave the clinic with a diagnosis, they often have difficulty describing their condition to family members and/or community members. Additionally, with children, parents may be unsure of how to discuss the diagnosis with their children\\\’s teachers and caretakers.
Your job is to create an educational presentation (final product should be in PowerPoint format) which explains any topic covered in this course in plain language. The presentation should be a minimum of 15 slides to not exceed 20 slides. By completing this assignment, you are showing evidence that you can synthesize complicated information from your readings and lessons and interpret that information in such a way that it can be understood by someone without your academic background. Include the audience of patient you are teaching (teenager, parent)topics to choose from: alzhiemers,Parkinson’s , diabetes insipidous, sickle cell disease or any STD
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
