This assignment is to demonstrate teaching patients and families about the tests used to diagnose nervous system (and other) disorders. I expect each student to use professional material and to use everyday/lay language. Patients and families do not know “medical-speak,” so you are to explain the testing using words they can understand. You are also teaching your fellow students about the testing and these diagnostic tests will be fair game for exams, so please complete the assignment with enough detail.
This assignment is your opportunity to teach each other about some of the testing that will be used with patients with neurological disorders. You can use your text and outside materials (not Wikipedia, WEB MD) to explain:
– What the test is
– How it is completed
– What it is used for
– How to prepare the patient for the test and how to assess and care for the patient after the testing is done.
Please be thorough and complete for full credit and use terminology that your peers and patients can understand.
To get full points, the post must:
Be detailed and thorough
Include a picture or video to enhance learning
Discuss the test in terms of its use for neurological problems
Include citations and references
The book is a good place to start, but you may use professional references (NOT WEB MD or wikipedia) to round out the information
**Please include a picture that will help others understand the teaching**
