Module 4 Discussion 2: Disease Analysis Journal

Module 4 Discussion 2: Disease Analysis Journal


In your exploration of readings this module, you will find articles of interest around the following areas: digestive system diseases and neurologic diseases. The key terms in the Explore section might give you some ideas for diseases to search. As you read the articles, be sure to consider how many of them have multiple issues going on within different systems. Is there a connection between the systems discussed?

You should spend approximately 10 hours on this assignment.


1. From the list of selected readings below, choose two with topics that you know the least about or are most interesting to you.

2. Then search for, read, and incorporate other readings of your choice in your area of interest that focus on digestive system diseases and/or neurologic diseases. You might include:

    -1-2 journal articles or websites

    -Book chapters (past textbooks may be good options)

    -Your goal is to have a total of at least 60 pages of content read.

3. Your summary of each reading should be at least one paragraph (100-200 words) and include the following information:

    -All references must be cited using APA Style format.

    -Number of pages read

    -Keywords you used to find the reading

    -A link to the reading

    -Why you selected the reading

    -The main point of the reading

    -Describe how the health deviations you read about alter normal physiology.

    -Provide your key takeaway from the reading. This could be something that made you pause, changed your thinking, supported your thinking, or made you question something.

4. Attach your Word document to a post in the Module 4 Discussion 2: Disease Analysis Journal discussion board. This will alert your peers and instructor that you have completed your journal assignment for this module. It should include all your journal assignments from the past modules.

5. In your post, identify how many systems are discussed or impacted by the disease you read about in the reading. Is there a connection between systems? Be specific.
