unit 3 toxicology

  Unit III Case Study Open

In  this assignment, you will choose options from each category to design    your own  case study. Once you have selected one option from each category, you    will use  that profile to write a case study report. Do not use the same    chemical you  researched in Unit II. Be  creative in developing your character    by giving a name, occupation (if  applicable), identity, and description of the    individual and the situation and  circumstances of the case study. The details    of the effects of the chemical  exposure should be supported by your    references.  

Step 1: Identify a specific chemical from ONE of these  categories:  fungicide,  rodenticide,  herbicide, or  insecticide. 

   Step     2: Choose a profile of the individual affected:  adult or  child. 

Step  3: Research at least two incidents of exposure  of  the  chemical. 

Step 4: Develop a case study of exposure of your chemical  to the    individual. Discuss the following in your case study:  Identify how the individual was exposed to the chemical.  Identify the exposure pathway of your chosen chemical.  What organ systems were affected by the chemical?  What acute and chronic effects of exposure to the chemical were observed?        Would the effects have been different if the individual was younger or older?        How could exposure to the chemical be avoided? 

The  case study should include the following  components:  Include all of the aspects in Step 4.  Utilize at least three credible references, one of which may be the textbook, and one of which must come from the CSU Online Library.  Include a minimum of at least two pages, not including title and reference  pages.  All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased  and quoted material must have accompanying citations. All references and  citations used must be in APA style.
