Date Reviewed/Updated for Clinical Accuracy: 
12/31/1969
Product Information
Abstract: 

This short anatomy class exercise introduces the cadaver as the first patient. The students will assess the cadaver and approach this as an investigation of patient history. The students will be required to present a cadaver report on their observations. The report will focus on the suspected cause of death and the students ideas on anticipated effects of their cadaver's clinical symptoms as they relate to the cadaver's daily life (i.e., ADL's, IADL's, AADL's, and possible means of compensation).

Educational objectives: 

The student will be able to: 1. Apply clinical observation skills of general appearance including age, gender, body habitus, and identifying features to the cadaver. 2. Associate identified clinical findings with anticipated impact on daily life including ADLs (bathing, dressing, grooming, mobility noting any aides, continence, feeding), IADLs (phone use, med use, shopping, cooking, cleaning, finances, transportation) AADLS (recreation, church, school, work), relationships, and self-concept.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

This is only a 15-20 minute encounter (first encounter) with the cadaver.
