Unformatted text preview: environment etc. • Causes: • What actually causes the disease? 30 • • • • • Is it one factor (i.e.: a gene, exposure to a virus) or a combination of several factors? Does the disease progress over time or does it just occur at a single time point? Prevention: Is there any way to prevent the disease? Can lifestyle modifications prevent or at least delay development of the disease or its symptoms? 4) Diagnosis: clinical, and sub clinical classifications • Diagnosis: • How is the disease diagnosed? • Is there one test that is classically used? Are several tests used? • How do the tests work? i.e.: explain the physiology behind them • Clinical classification • Are there different stages of the disease? • What key biomarkers are used to distinguish between levels disease? • Are all individuals with the disease actually diagnosed? Can you have the disease and not know? • Sub ­clinical classification: • Do sub ­clinical populations exist? That is, can you have “pre ­disease x” (eg: pre diabetes vs. diabetes) • If so, do sub ­clinical cases always develop into clinical cases? • What is the typical time frame between sub ­clinical and clinical diagnosis? 5) Physician Prescribed Treatments, Complementary Alternative Medicine and Post Treatment Management • Physician Prescribed Treatments: • What treatments exist for the disease? (eg. drugs, surgery…) • If the disease treated with drugs – consider their mechanism of action (ie: what to they target/why do they work) • Are new cutting edge treatments currently being studied? • Do these treatments cure the disease, or just treat the symptoms? • Complementary Alternative Medicine: • Are alternative therapies common (ie: natural remedies, Chinese medicine etc) • Can the disease be treated by lifestyle interventions? • Are combination therapies most effective? • Do these treatments cure the disease, or just treat the symptoms? • Post ­treatment management: • How is the disease managed following diagnosis? • Are treatments required on a one ­time basis or are they continual? • Can the disease be cured, or just managed? • Are continued lifestyle changes required following diagnosis? • NB: you may choose to highlight all the possible treatment strategies on one slide while expanding on the most common treatment strategy on another slide. 31 Planning Template for BIOL 1080 Disease PowerPoint Presentation Use this template to organize your presentation ideas with your group.
