discuss the evidence that clinicians gather to diagnose the two diseases/disorders
(a) Signs and symptoms of the disease.
(b) Explain the effects of the disease on healthy body structure and function, and how these effects relate to signs and symptoms.
(c) Discuss the tools or diagnostic tests that are used to make the diagnosis. Explain, in general terms, how each tool or test works and how the data from the tool or test conveys the relevant information to the clinician about the body function or structure that is impacted by the disease.
(d) For your Summary, discuss the following ideas:
– What differences and similarities exist between communicable and non-communicable diseases/disorders based on your choices?
– Risk factors
What are the risk factors for each of the diseases/disorders?
Are any of the risk factors in common?
Are any risk factors controllable? Why and how?
– How are the diagnostic tools or tests similar or different for the two diseases/disorders?
– Discuss at least one promising treatment or cure for each of the diseases/disorders you selected.
– Are there societal conditions that predispose these diseases/disorders to certain groups (think of race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender, age)? If a societal change is the cure (such as decreasing social injustice or less reliance on fossil fuels that pollute the environment), discuss any progress toward societal change.
