A. In-Class Word Analysis: (10 Points) Bring the in-class participation form to each class period to write down and analyze medical terms during and as needed after the class period. This form is found on Blackboard. Date each class session that terms are introduced (you must be present the day of the terms to receive credit – but will be responsible for all terms on exams, i.e. matching with formal definition). The form will be checked at the midterm exam (up to 10 points) and at the final exam (up to 10 points).

B. Class Participation:

If you are not attending, arriving late or leaving early you are not participating!!!!

Quizzes and examinations are administered at the beginning of class. No additional time will be given for late arrival. Once the first student has completed a quiz or examination and left the room, no late arrivals will be permitted to take the quiz or test.

C. RX: Up to 20 Points

Students will research two different commonly prescribed medications. They may seek advice from a pharmacist or physician. The form and grading rubric can be found on Blackboard. This assignment must be uploaded into before the class period. Turn in your RX and matching report with explanations at the beginning of the class period. Students will write down the different medications and indications during the RX class session. Terminology from this assignment may be used on the midterm exam

D. Chapter Quizzes: (Up to 330 points) Students will take a fill-in-the-blank 30-point chapter quiz covering the material from the assigned chapter readings. The quizzes come from the “Word Parts Focus” sections. Quizzes will be given out the first minute of class. Arrive on time to use all 10 minutes of quiz time allocated. There are no make-ups for missed quizzes.

E. Midterm Examination: (Up to 150 points) Students will take a 2-hour, 150-point midterm exam that will cover the material from lectures and textbook chapters 1-8. The exam will be objective and include subjective writing and listening skills including terms introduced during class activities including table analysis. The midterm exam will take place according to the College Exam Schedule.

F. Group Assignment: Word Game (Up to 120 points) Teams of up to three students will sign up early in the semester to present a review game to prepare the class for the midterm or final exam. There will be 11 games for the following Chapters: 2 through 16. See Written Assignment Instructions and grading rubric on Blackboard for detailed information

Note: The following is a separate part of the game assignment for each gamester. 1. Each student gamester will use a database to find an abstract from a peer-reviewed medical journal (e.g., JAMA) related to any pathology, diagnosis, or treatment found in the textbook chapter(s). A total of 5 different medical terms must be analyzed for prefix, combining form, and suffix. The abstracts must be from current articles (2011-2013) and Wikipedia, newspaper, and other compendia are not acceptable.

2. Underline all the different medical terms in each abstract (minimally 5). Next highlight five of those underlined terms that you will analyze using the Analysis Table. Analyze each term for its components (prefixes, combining forms/root, and suffixes) with all parts also defined into the Gamester table of analysis. Upload your analysis table along with your game critique into as instructed after you have presented your game in class. Failure to upload will result in the forfeit of all critique points. Use APA handbook to cite the article.

3. Before presenting their game, the team of gamesters will turn in a packet with their title page, game rules and questions and answers. AND each individual gamester will also turn in their abstract assignment consisting of a title page, one underlined and highlighted abstract. You will pronounce one term from each abstract at the beginning of your game. The audience and gamesters should write these terms down as they may appear on the midterm or final exam.

4. After the game is presented in class, one gamester will upload the game packet material into and all gamesters will upload their individual tables of analysis with citations along with a detailed critique of each partner as well as themselves. At the end of each critique the gamester will score a grade for each individual including themselves. Print out the report, explain all matches and turn it in at the next class meeting (penalty points will be deducted if turned in late).

G. Written Assignment #1: Interview (Up to 110 Points) See Written Assignment Instructions & Grading Rubric on Blackboard for detailed information. No late interviews will be accepted. Interviews must be uploaded into & Blackboard by the due date and time.

Final Comprehensive Examination: (Up to 150 points) Students will take a 2-hour, 150-point final comprehensive exam that will stress the lecture material after the midterm and textbook chapters 9-17. The exam will be objective and may include subjective writing and listening skills including terms introduced during class activities including table analysis. The final exam will take place according to the College Exam Schedule.

I will try to return all phone calls and emails within 24 hours Monday – Friday and within 48 hours Saturday – Sunday. J. CLASS POLICIES

Class will start promptly according to the schedule on course wizard. Students are expected to arrive on time and be prepared. All cell phones and beepers are to be turned off. DO NOT TEXT IN CLASS! There will be a sign-in sheet at each of the class sessions. A student must sign in and attend the entire class in order to receive credit for any work due or done in class that day! All assignments, quizzes, and exams are due or begin at the start of the scheduled class session. It is the student’s responsibility to acquire any missed material or announcements from a fellow student or to make an appointment with me.

There will be no make-ups allowed or late work accepted, with the exception of bona-fide documented excuses that specify that the student was physically or mentally unable to be in class on a specific date and it must also specify the date when the student is able to return to campus. The procedure to turn in work late or make-up a missed assignment requires the student to contact me as soon as possible to make arrangements. The student is expected to turn in any assignment or to take a make-up as soon as they return to campus or face a reduction in points. Make up exams that are allowed will cover the same material but may be in a different format such as essay. Do NOT wait until the next class session you attend to request any make up or to turn in late assignments. Work conflicts and transportation difficulties are not considered valid excuses. Student athletes must provide their anticipated conflict dates and also have their coach verify any NSU athletic event that conflicts with the class schedule.

I will try to return all phone calls and emails within 24 hours Monday – Friday and within 48 hours Saturday – Sunday. & BlackBoard: All student work must be turned in at the beginning of the class period when it is due. All individually written work by the student must be uploaded into by the assigned deadline for all of the article abstracts, the interview, the clinical trial, and the pamphlet assignments. After submission, you must check your matching report on line and explain any matching percentage for the Portfolios and Written Assignments. You must keep quotations to less than 10%. You must print out your matching report and explain all matches! Turn in the explained report with the assignment. Excessively high matches may result in point deductions and possible sanctions. At the beginning of this semester you will be given information on how to set up your specific account at Note: Any work not submitted to will be given a 0 grade. All handouts will be available on BlackBoard. Students will also be uploading their Interview and Pamphlet Assignments into the Discussion section of BlackBoard and will post to two different student interviews and pamphlets and respond to all students who post to them.

Replacement-credit: Will be very limited in scope and is not intended as a substitute for poor performance on required assignments and exams. Students are expected to arrive on time. All cell phones and music players are to be turned off. Nonparticipation, texting in class, tardiness, leaving early and unexcused absenteeism will result in the loss of replacement XC points.

K. Post-Game Critiques: Peer game grading will be used this semester as an extra-credit assignment except for the gamesters (Mandatory assignment). Students will use the critique form found on Blackboard for critiquing their fellow students for the student created games (Chapters 4 -16). Note: all postgame critiques must be uploaded into within 24 hours following the activity. Failure to upload will result in the forfeit of any XC point (Note: Gamesters are required to upload a critique as part of their Group Assignment Grade. See the grading rubric and instructions for this assignment). Bonus points will be awarded for thoroughness of thought (1 to 2 points).

On a limited first-come basis, students may arrange to bring a guest speaker to class (physician, nurse, therapist, pharmacist, etc.) who will present information directly related to their use of medical terminology in their practice for up to 10XC points. The student will introduce the guest. Guests will have 15 minutes of class time. All guests must be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance. No guests are allowed on testing or major assignment dates.

Tips for a successful learning experience: This course will require significant time outside of class studying the language of medicine. It is vital that you develop excellent organizational and studying skills to optimize your time. Also, establishing a study group from the beginning of the semester will enhance your learning and should prove to be a valuable resource throughout the course.

It is highly recommended that all students create flash cards, cognitive maps, and outlines for each chapter. Make use of all resources (i.e. chapter exercises). Use the Internet, medical and online libraries, etc… to illuminate the material. Remember: medical terminology is a disciplined, detailed, and challenging course that will require many hours per week outside of class. This requires great planning, organizing, motivational skills, and especially – responsibility.

Final thought; remember that this material will be the foundation that you will use daily in your chosen health career. The more effort you place into the course early on, the easier and more enjoyable it will become AND the greater your retention will be!

Publisher’s Resources: You will find the student media useful in reviewing the text material. Go to select Medical Terminology, click on the book to log in using the access code inside the front cover of your new textbook. VII. COURSE SCHEDULE AND TOPIC OUTLINE:

...Mission, Vision, Values, & Managment In today's post-recession workforce, gaining employment is so difficult that once hired, life has new meaning. The mission, vision, and values may mean different things to managers. With a closer look into an organization, from the newest employees up to the experienced senior management, it is found that many of the staff members do not have knowledge enough to recall the mission and vision statement. The military is used as an example, setting the standard for other public and private entities. In this case, let's examine a human resources unit in the United States Air Force. The Air Force Civilian Services mission and vision statement aim to "provide elite administrative, operation and technical support for the Air Force vision; Global vigilance, reach, and power" ('Our Mission & Vision', 2016). The mission and vision statement must work together to meet the organizational goals. In examining the core competencies, one must consider the true definition and rationale. Also, the Air Force has a set of strategic goals that determine the long-range direction of the organization. The attitudes, behaviors and goals of each Air Force civilian in the group are meant to demonstrate alignment with the vision, mission, values, and competencies. For a company to manifest values and a culture that leads to success, these vital mantras must be reiterated, exercised, memorized, and done by all employees. Mission Statment There is a......

...The legalization of gambling in Texas has been in debate for many years. In 1995, Texas proposed a referendum for casino gambling but it was rejected by many of the stateʼs conservative residents. In 2011, casino taxes accounted for $660 million of Indianaʼs state tax revenue (Hoagland-Smith, 2012). This revenue supports basic government services, such as school funding, child safety and corrections. Rather than enjoying the same type of profits, Texas has found it hard to meet its state budget year after year. Revenues from the casino could help cure a lot of the financial issues throughout Texas. These issues can range from roads to schools and education. While revenue from the casinos will be a major benefit for the Texas, the increase in employment will be another component to Texasʼ economic growth (Garrett, 2003). Casino operations require labor, and this labor is likely to come from the local area. Though residents debate over the value of gambling to its moral hazard, its hard not to see how we can benefit from this major source of revenue. Tax revenue could be one of many great beneficial contributions to Texas. Permitting gambling in Texas could boost the economic growth for the state. According to "Business Insider" (2011),”“Bad news on the state of muni finance the Texas budget is expected to run a $27 billion two-year budget shortfall according to just-released state estimates. That is worse than the $25 billion that Paul Krugman cited last week......

...Abstract The Lean Project Delivery System emerged in 2000 from theoretical and practical investigations, and is in process of on-going development through experimentation in many parts of the world. In recent years, experiments have focused on the definition and design phase of projects, applying concepts and methods drawn from the Toyota Product Development System, most especially target costing and set based design. These have been adapted for use in the construction industry and integrated with computer modeling and relational forms of contract. Although by no means a finished work, the Lean Project Delivery System has developed sufficiently to warrant an updated description and presentation to industry and academia, incorporating processes and practices that have emerged since earlier publications. Keywords: Lean project delivery, project business plan, project business plan validation, set based design, target cost Introduction “The hospital is a machine the design of which facilitates or impedes its fitness for use.” (Dave Chambers, Chief Architect, Sutter Health)3 The implications of Chambers’ statement are important and far reaching. One consequence is that the use of hospitals and other such facilities must be designed before the facility itself can be designed. Common practice in the process industries, it has now become evident that it should be extended to other types of facilities. Such considerations have become both more common and more......

...Today, we had a very interesting lession in our business edge class. Most of the people misunderstand the concept of difference between Manager and a Leader. So we had a lession called “Managers and Leaders are they different?” . From that, it is very clear that these two concepts are totally different and after listening and reading the article, now I am in a better position to differentiate these two. While listening to all the presentation and doing some research I have gain some knowledge of who is a manager of a business. As it is very clear that manager is a person who has given tasked to ensure that all employees carry out assigned duties as required. In this case they also look after their responsible departments as well. They have a legal power to control and manage all their subordinates to achieve the overall goals of the organization. Therefore successful managers are the people who achieve their goals and objectives of the organization. Another thing which I learned was who is a leader. After reading the article, I realized that leader is a person who guides other people towards a common goal. He / she is a role model for others where they creative an environment in which other team members feel actively involved in the entire process. The distinct difference between manager and leader is that managers are normally involved in how things done where leaders concerned about how it effect the people. There are various differences between manager and a leader...

...In the early nineteen hundreds, America was steeped in an industrial revolution. During this time more people were working than ever before. Factories were being built and filled to capacity with employees. In all this new activity, problems arose in several aspects of the factory setting that included “tooling the plants, organizing managerial structure, training employees (many of them non-English-speaking immigrants), scheduling complex manufacturing operations, and dealing with increased labor dissatisfaction and resulting strikes.”(Daft, 2013, p. 36) This is around the time that what is called the “Classical Perspective” study of management arose. There are three sub fields of the classical perspective: Scientific Management, bureaucratic organizations, and administrative principles. Most notable of the three is the theory of scientific management which was originally founded by Frederick Taylor. During the time of the industrial revolution, the scientific theory of management was perfect for a factory setting. “Tasks were standardized as much as possible. Workers were rewarded and punished. This approach appeared to work well for organizations with assembly lines and other mechanistic, routinized activities.”( While this method increased productivity, over the years it has ignored the needs of the employees and social contexts. Further widening the gap between corporations and small businesses, the bureaucracy was......
