A2 Written Assignment: Concept map assignment
Concept map + 750 words written section
Weighting: 30%
Due Date: 5pm, 10th May 2021
Aim:
The aim of this assessment is to provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate your critical thinking
skills, your capacity to differentiate a normal from abnormal patient presentation and to identify
appropriate, evidence-based, diagnostic investigations and treatment modalities associated with an
assigned case-study.
This assessment item will assess:
Learning Outcome 4: Apply knowledge of the pathophysiology of disorders of the nervous, immune
and musculoskeletal systems to solve clinical problems.
Learning Outcome 3: Apply knowledge of microbiology to selected infectious diseases
Relate the clinical manifestations and diagnostic findings of health deviations to the underlying
pathophysiology of disease states.
Learning Outcome 5: Select diagnostic tests, physical assessment techniques and treatment
modalities (especially pharmacotherapeutics) that are appropriate to the disorders.
Instructions:
For this task you will create a single page (using PowerPoint or Microsoft Word) colour coded concept
map and provide a 750-word written explanation, demonstrating analysis of a case-study scenario
that will be provided at the start of your course.
Your concept map must include:
• An interpretation of ALL the patient risk factors (from the case-study scenario) and a
demonstration of how these risk factors link and relate to the diagnosed disease/disorders’
aetiology, using evidence-based literature.
• A step-by-step pathophysiological sequence between the diagnosed disease/disorders’
aetiology and ALL the patient’s clinical manifestations (from the case-study scenario), using
evidence-based literature.
• From your analysis and interpretation of the evidence-based research, identify the
appropriate pharmacological approach and treatment modalities for the patient’s diagnosis
(accurately linking these diagnostic investigations and treatments to appropriate points within
your concept map).

In your 750-word written explanation:
• Explain how ALL the patient’s risk factors (from the case-study scenario) are linked to the
diagnosed disease’s/disorder’s pathophysiological process/s.
• Explain how the disease’s/disorder’s pathophysiology manifests to produce ALL of the
patient’s clinical manifestations (from the case-study scenario).
• Using evidence-based literature, justify the pharmacological approach and treatment
modalities listed in the concept map in terms of their relevance and appropriateness for the
diagnosed disease/disorder.

Other elements:

• Word limit of 750 words needs to be strictly adhered to. The word limit for an assessment item
includes in text citations and quotations. The word limit DOES NOT include the reference list.
Please note the marker will cease marking your submitted work once they have reached 750
words.
• Always refer to the Griffith Health Writing and Referencing Guide. Ensure your assignment
format strictly adheres to these guidelines.
• Ensure that you use scholarly literature1 (digitized readings, research articles, relevant
Government reports and textbooks) that has been published within the last ten [10] years
(between 2011 – 2021 (inclusive).
• Use the APA7 referencing style.
• You may use headings to organize your written section
• Use academic language2 throughout.
• Refer to the marking rubric when writing your assignment. This will assist you in calculating
the weightings of the sections for your assignment.
• Submit your assignment via Turnitin as per the instructions on your [email protected] course
site. [Submit in the ‘FINAL Written Essay’ assessment tab.
• Please ensure you receive a turnitin receipt (take a screen shot) after submitting your
assignment and please check you have uploaded the correct assessment into the correct
folder.

1 Scholarly or peer-reviewed journal articles are written by scholars or professionals who are experts in their
field, as opposed to literature such as magazine articles, which reflect the taste of the general public and are
meant as entertainment.
2 Everyday language is predominately subjective. It is mainly used to express opinions based on personal
preference or belief rather than evidence. Written academic English is formal. It avoids colloquialisms and
slang, which may be subjective to local and social variations. Formal language is more precise and stable, and
therefore more suitable for the expression of complex ideas and the development of reasoned argumentation
