Assignment Task

As you study anatomy and physiology on your journey to becoming a health professional, you need to learn how to employ the standardised language of the field known as ‘medical terminology’. Medical terminology allows all health professionals to understand each other and communicate effectively. However, the patients for whom we care may not necessarily be familiar with medical terminology, and yet, it is imperative we are able to pass on to our patients the relevant information and care advice pertinent to them in a way they can understand.

[Task A] – Creating an anatomical dialogue for non-health professionals

You are encouraged to start Task A as soon as possible - write an account of an injury or medical condition from the perspective of someone who is part of the general public. That is, describe the injury or medical condition using plain language that would be understood by someone with no knowledge of medical terminology. It is essential that you focus on how the human body was affected during and/or after the experience and do not write too much on how the event came about - make sure your story is medically oriented. Your account should be no longer than 200-250 words.

You might want to be creative with this task and write a ‘Dear Diary’ entry or as if an accident has occurred and you are a reporter writing a newspaper article. It is up to you to choose the style in which you write.

Task A should be written using only general terminology and language that non-professional people understand. This may make your story sound simple and vague – but this task is focussed on language that members of the general public would understand. If in doubt about the appropriateness of a term, consider: is there another way of communicating the same message that a greater number of people in the general population will understand? For example, ‘x-ray’, although commonly used in everyday conversations, is actually a medical term. An x-ray could be more simply described as a ‘special photo that can see your bones’.

Always use the clearest terms when communicating (even if they seem a bit silly or colloquial!)

Consider the following questions when editing your draft:

  • Was a term/word used that you do not fully understand or do not know the definition of? What would be an alternate term/word that a non-professional would/does understand?
  • Were the simplest terms used throughout? Can any terms be simplified further?
  • Did the story describe the effect on the human body in enough detail, that is, did it contain enough anatomical and physiological information for this task? 

When drafting or reviewing your story, make sure that all terminology and language use can be understood by a non-professional person. You may want to also share your story with family and friends who are not health professionals and check that the terminology and language used is understood by all.

Remember to try to avoid all medical terminology and any complex language that could be restated in simpler terms. This is what you will be marked on!!

[Task B] – Reconstruction of your anatomical dialogue for a health professional

You will need to review and reconstruct your story of the injury or medical condition from the perspective of an experienced health professional

Describe the injury or medical condition now using anatomical and physiological terminology that would be understood by a health professional (and therefore unlikely to be understood by a member of the general public) by reconstructing your story from Task A. Note that the language used for Task B needs to be appropriate for the new audience of experienced health professionals!

Again, you may wish to choose a creative writing style to formulate your response to Task B, such as a patient report or short medical case study, but this is not a requirement.

[Task C] – Response to questions

Task C asks you to consider the following two (2) stimuli and provide a considered response to each. You can simply copy and paste the stimuli into the Task C area of your document and provide your response under each stimulus. Your responses should total between 200-250 words for Task C.

Stimulus 1: What is one key learning outcome that you have gained through completing Task A and Task B in this assessment task?

Stimulus 2: With consideration to the field in which you wish to work in the future, how will you use this learning to enhance your future practice as a health professional?

Learning outcomes
On successful completion of this assignment, you will be able to:

  • Effectively communicate and share knowledge of anatomy and physiology concepts in collaborative healthcare contexts
