Human Health in the Balance. Hands-on! Developing Active Learning Modules on the Human Dimensions of Global Change by Melinda S Meade( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This learning module aims to engage students in problem solving, critical thinking, scientific inquiry, and cooperative learning. The module is appropriate for use in any introductory or intermediate undergraduate course that focuses on human-environment relationships. The module states that human health is a product of complex interactions among population, environment, technology, and culture, all of which are affected by global change. It explains that, for example, changes in climate or land use/land cover can affect the reproductive cycles of arthropods that transmit disease, the availability of water for hygiene and sanitation, and/or the concentration of chemical pollutants in the air, water, and soil. It also states that infectious diseases, which cause more than half the mortalities in tropical developing countries and are resurgent in developed ones, are also potentially affected by global environmental changes. According to the module, changes associated with urbanization, globalization, and population growth and mobility encourage disease diffusion and a globalization of health risks. The module introduces students to these issues and illustrates the complex relationships among human health and global change. The module contains 5 tables, 6 figures, a list of acronyms, a guide, a summary, an overview, a glossary, references for all units, supporting materials, and appendixes with additional sources. It is divided into thematically coherent units, each of which consists of background information, teaching suggestions, and student worksheets. (Bt)
Development, implementation, and evaluation of a documentation program to initiate colonoscopy screening after the age of 50 by Sarah Washburn( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Colorectal cancer poses a great problem for the United States primarily because it is the second leading cause of cancer death and the third leading causes of all deaths in the nation. These figures could greatly improve if more patients were able to obtain a screening colonoscopy at an appropriate age. Current literature indicates that patients require more education on colorectal cancer and methods of screening for the disease. colonoscopy is considered the "gold standard" for colorectal cancer screening but is often not offered to patients that are prime candidates. Current literature does not include research on the efficacy of a charting system to improve colonoscopy screening rates. This research project evaluates the efficacy of a documentation system implemented at a family practice clinic in Kansas. The documentation system was placed on the charts of patients presenting for a complete physical exam over a one month period. The documentation form focuses on colorectal cancer risk factors and prompts the provider to educate the patient on the efficacy of colonoscopy and schedule the patient for the test if applicable
