Question Description

The task is not lengthy but the tutor needs to adequately analyse the information. Not following the guideline will result in a failing grade and a failing requested.

Request: Write a 1500 words case study based on the attached guideline (PLEASE read the entire instruction in the word document as the professor is very strict regarding what he wants to read).The case study is designed to give a realistic overview of a single breast cancer patient from screening, through diagnosis, to the gathering of prognostic information and treatment schedule. It is your understanding of this process, and the interpretation of Cellular Pathology-derived data that will be assessed.

Materials:The paper will be written using some case information and recordings which are provided at this link ( https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%21AAvZpL4qtCj6ez0&id=85EC506A1E01E5E7%21213&cid=85EC506A1E01E5E7 ) The following represents the elements which you will find there and which you MUST use:

1) Full Request

2) Breast Cancer Lecture 1 and Lecture 2 with explanatory recording

3) Diana case presentation

4) Diana case results

5)Pre and post practical protocols and results

6)Overview of breast cancer


The paper needs to use ONLY the figures provided (and they MUST be uses under the form of appendix). The final paper needs to be on point and concise. You can ONLY use the figures which are featured in the Case Study info part. In addition, the paper should be based on a minimum of 20 up to date references ( no older than 2018) to support the statements.

Assignment Brief Assignment Title Coursework 2: 1500 word lab-based case study Word Limit 1500 words Assignment Description Outline: Write a 1500 word case study, following the guidelines below. Clear guidance is given on what you should include, and further areas for consideration were provided in the case-study material provided via Blackboard. The case study is designed to give a realistic overview of a single breast cancer patient from screening, through diagnosis, to the gathering of prognostic information and treatment schedule. It is your understanding of this process, and the interpretation of Cellular Pathology-derived data that will be assessed. Content and structure: You do NOT need to repeat the patient-specific information given in the case study documentation in your report – this will not gain you marks. You will, however, need to apply a narrative to your report. The following guidelines should help with this. Particular areas are covered in this guidance, and/or specific questions posed for you to answer – however, in the interests of developing your writing skills, do NOT use these directly as subheadings in your report. See notes below on subheadings. Consider including the following points: (every point needs justification) • Initial diagnosis 1. Briefly describe the principle of mammography and how a “suspicious mass” is detected. 2. What conclusions can be drawn from the needle biopsy? 3. What are the limitations of the needle biopsy? • Include labelled images from the practical class (not the case study documentation) to illustrate your answers to the following section with appropriate figure legends. 1. Why do we need to determine the histological subtype of tumour? 2. How would the molecular characteristics of the tumour determine the treatment regimen AND prognosis? 3. Please grade the tumour that you have studied and explain your reasoning. 4. Please provide a TNM stage for this case based on the data that you have available, and discuss any limiting factors. 5. What is the clinical prognosis for Diana? Include in your answer an indication of her percentage chance of being alive 5 years after this diagnosis and explain your reasoning. 6. Based on everything that you now know about this case, what treatment is Diana likely to receive? 7. What clinical trials are currently running in the UK that may be appropriate for Diana to participate in? Include in your answer a brief description of the mechanism of action for this treatment and your rationale for it being suitable for Diana. Information on Presentation ___________________________________________________________________ Use of subheadings (ACTIVE SUB-HEADINGS NEEDED) Subheadings are a powerful tool when writing, and some thought should be given to their use. They can be used to reinforce a narrative structure to your work, but can also be used to disarm a readers preconceptions. Subheadings that make active statements are much more effective than passive ones. For example: “Subtypes of breast cancer” = passive “Breast cancer presents as a number of different subtypes – each having a different treatment regimen” = active Referencing: Minimum 20 UWE Harvard references (USING THIS GENERATORhttps://app.bibguru.com/p/50e5891c-40f0-4d07-97d7-060d131aa495 ) Word limit: 1500 words (excluding references and figure legends) is the LIMIT for this assignment. Your word count should be indicated clearly on the first page. Overly long figure legends will not receive marks. Learning Outcomes Addressed • • • • Employ good laboratory practice related to Cellular Pathology techniques. Understand the principles of tissue preparation for histology and the mechanism by which common staining methods work. Discuss the role of Cell Pathology in the diagnosis and prognosis of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic disease in the major organs and tissues. Understand current therapeutic approaches and be able to discuss potential future avenues for therapy. Marking Criteria Your assignment will be marked in-line with the Faculty of Health and Applied Science’s marking criteria, which are provided on the next page. Marking criteria 0-29% *FHEQ Level 5 A Limited/Very Level 2 Limited/ Exceptionally Limited Piece of Work 30-39% Marginal Fail/ Limited piece of work 40-49% Pass Some evidence of understanding but overall not reaching the minimum pass standard due to some key omissions in presentation, argument or structure. Lines of argument need further development. Content not always relevant. Limited evidence of reading. * Some evidence of effort but missing some essential aspects. For example, may be lacking in evidence of understanding, focus and structure. Likely to have limited discussion with some lack of relevance. Presentation may need to be improved. Likely to show insufficient evidence of reading. Meets the relevant learning outcomes but mostly descriptive. Some basic evaluation but analysis is not very well developed. May be some unsubstantiated assertion. Some misunderstandin g of key principles and concepts. Evidence of some structure but not always well sequenced. Evidence of some reading. Presentation and focus may need improving. 50-59% Good 60-69% Very Good A Module LO’s Paste module LO’s in this column Some material presented but generally unsatisfactory with some irrelevant or incorrect material. Lack of discussion. Likely to show insufficient evidence of reading. Likely to be incomplete. * Significant deficiencies. Likely to have insufficient, irrelevant or incorrect material. Likely to have very poor structure and no discussion. * Insufficient material presented. No evidence of sufficient preparation. Zero is reserved for failure to attempt an answer but where a submission has been made. Knowledge base generally sound with some evidence of independent thought. Analysis and discussion usually clear but may need to strengthen focus. Balance between description and analysis could be improved. Evidence of reading but could have read more widely. Appropriately referenced. A maturing ability to relate theory and concepts to discussion. Content always relevant and generally well focussed and organised. Attempts critical evaluation but may be limited in-depth discussion. Factually accurate. Some evidence of having drawn on reading from beyond the course material. Good referencing.
