Definition of Disease Process:
You must tell what the disease process for your topic is, how is it diagnosed, the course
of the disease or its’ prognosis, and the treatment. This will be the “body” of your paper
and it should be more than one paragraph. You need to get your information from more
than one source and you must give the author credit. We know that you are learning
about your disease process and that this is not your own information, and that’s all right!
But you HAVE to give the author credit. Otherwise it’s called plagiarism.
