AMU Osteoarthritis Syndrome H

Using the annotated bibliography attached, on Osteoarthritis, create an outline.

The outline format: Your outline must be formatted as described and exemplified in the example attached. Please note that this format will be assessed in your grade:

  • Use an alphanumeric sequence
  • Sections should be indented and aligned
  • Follow the suggested order of the required elements
  • Use brief but detailed and descriptive phrases.

The required elements: Your outline should contain the following elements in the following order (keep in mind that your presentation, Assignment #3, should be 10-15 slides, so you need to be concise and clear with your information – some information researched will be written on your slides but most will be narrated in the audio portion of your presentation):

I. Introduction Section – this section must contain the following:

A. Topic selection and reason for selecting

B. Thoroughly define the disease/condition

C. History of the disease/condition

II. Content Sections – this section must contain the following four main topics (the subtopics are recommendations to use if appropriate to your disease/condition):

A. Statistics/Epidemiology:

1. Statistical prevalence (e.g. overall, gender, age)

2. Types of distributions (e.g. frequencies, patterns)

3. Types of determinants (e.g. causes, risk factors)

B. Financial Costs:

1. Costs to the individual/family

2. Possible costs to society

3. Loss of productivity

C. Anatomy & Physiology/Etiology:

1. The normal and abnormal structure & function behind the disease/condition

2. Cause(s) of the disease/condition

D. Diagnosis/Treatments/Prognosis:

1. How this disease/condition is diagnosed (e.g. history, exam, diagnostic imaging, labs)

2. How the condition/disease is treated (e.g. traditional medical treatments, alternative methods of treatment)

3. The prediction of this disease/condition’s outcome (i.e., prognosis)

III. Conclusion Section – this section must contain four to six sentences that sum up the main topics of the outline.

IV. Reference Section – This is not just the reference page; rather, referencing should occur throughout the outline as it will in your presentation. Therefore, your outline should include both a separate reference page containing a minimum of five sources listed in proper APA reference list format AND internal citations throughout the outline where appropriate. Please be sure to see the resources below for assistance regarding in-text citations and reference list formatting, and/or ask me if you have any additional questions.

Please make note of the following tips and tricks:

  • We understand that this is a rough draft and, as your research and writing continue over the next few weeks, details may be added or changed. Although you do not have to resubmit it to me, I recommend that you update this outline to help you best complete Assignments 3.
  • Write your outline so that it has detailed bullets that you can easily then flesh out into sentences for the narration of your presentation (Assignment 3).
  • After your outline is complete, I recommend that you next draft your introductory and conclusion sections for your outline. This will ensure that all the main points of the outline are incorporated in these two framing sections of your final presentation.
  • Please note that less than 10% of your outline or presentation (Assignment 3) should contain direct quotes.
  • All internal citation references should be listed on the reference page, and vice versa.

The outline will shape the final project due in 3 weeks, this is just an outline!
