COURSE CONTENT AND CHAPTER QUIZZES:

This course is a review of various respiratory pathologies in the adult and pediatric populations.  Skim the chapters included in the course content section and select 12 chapters of interest. The student will read the chapter selected along with the power point presentations and take the chapter quiz.  This will be a self paced course but it is suggested that the student complete approximately two chapters per week.  All students will complete Chapters 9 and 10 by June 12th.  Also, please submit to the instructor via email a list of the other 12 chapters chosen for completion by June 12th.  At that time the appropriate quizzes will be made available under the assessment icon for each student. 

 

RESEARCH ARTICLE REVIEW and/or ACTUAL CASE REPORT:         

Select a topic relating to a disease/condition covered in the text.    You have the option of utilizing an actual case study (either located on the internet or in your professional practice) or locating an article in reference to your selected disease process.  Focus on patient assessment, therapeutic interventions, care plan and management.  Discuss whether or not the patient was managed according to published standards.  Within the report cite at least 3 current (last five years) peer-reviewed research articles that focus on the topic of your report.  Please do not hesitate to utilize additional sources as well.  The report is to be APA format, word processed utilizing a font no greater than 12 with 1-inch margins and double-spaced with page numbers.  The amount of student written material (excluding the Title Page, Literature Cited and Other References) must total at least 5 pages.  You will be graded on overall coverage of the subject and readability of the report. Points will be deducted for spelling and grammar.   Reports should be submitted under the assignment icon and are due no later than July 30th.

Student Honor Creed

As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception. Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters. We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student. We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed. Written and adopted by the 2002-2003 MSU Student Senate.

Students with Disabilities The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Disability Support Services in Room 168 of the Clark Student Center, 397-4140.

Safe Zones Statement The professor considers this classroom to be a place where you will be treated with respect as a human being - regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, political beliefs, age, or ability. Additionally, diversity of thought is appreciated and encouraged, provided you can agree to disagree. It is the professor's expectation that ALL students consider the classroom a safe environment.

Contacting your Instructor All instructors in the Department have voicemail in their offices and MWSU e-mail addresses. Make sure you add your instructor's phone number and e-mail address to both email and cell phone lists of contacts.
