Bellarmine Univeraity students present their projects

Student’s from Bellarmine University have nearly completed their project – Pathophysiology of Complex Patient Problems. This project explores conditions where signs and symptoms that emerge when homeostasis is disrupted, and addresses medical and physical therapy management of patient problems consequent to the underlying pathology. The dysfunctional states or disorders discussed in this course may include nutritional, infectious, gastrointestinal, hepatic, endocrine, metabolic, renal, genitourinary, autoimmune, connective tissue, dermatology, hematology, oncology, and immunodeficiency. The effects of age, gender, and ethnic factors on the pathology, manifestation of patient problems, and patient management are considered. The multiple effects of pharmacological intervention are addressed, including therapeutic effects and effects on patient cognitive and psychomotor abilities in physical therapy.  All they have left to do now is present the disorder that they published on Physiopedia to the rest of their classmates, so that they can all learn about the different disorders from each other.

The work that the students at Bellarmine Universtiy produce is great and a valued contribution to Physiopedia.  If you would like to see what these students have been up to, here is the list of disorders that will be presented next week:
