The instructions need to be updated.

The instructions need to be updated and explain what to do if both sides of the "relational equation" show the same thing said 2 different ways and marked as 2 different concepts.

Is it useful to highlight disease name abbreviations that appear within animal model names?
Ex: ...the lymphocytes from mice with lymphoproliferative disease ( lpr ) could be explained... ...and from C57 BL 6 / lpr mice were labelled...

Should I mark test results?

Hi Ginger,
According to  the instructions about Disease Marking Skill I should  mark the test results that support a disease diagnosis.
May you clarify  what means?
Look at this part of the document: "The Double A phenotype: Portending Allgrove's syndrome and averting adrenal crisis"   of ALACRIMA quest 20:.....  Examination revealed stunted weight (SDS of -4.4)and height (SDS of -4.76), and barium swallow showed presence of achalasia. On direct questioning, her mother mentioned presence of decreased tears on crying since birth, and Schirmer's test confirmed the presence of dry eyes.    Baseline ACTH was slightly elevated with normal basal and post-ACTH stimulation serum cortisol. Based on these findings, impending Allgrove's syndrome was diagnosed  ....
Should I mark   stunted weight (SDS of -4.4) and height (SDS of -4.76) and, above all, Baseline ACTH was slightly elevated with normal basal and post-ACTH stimulation serum cortisol.
If yes,  I've done another million of errors (I plead guilty) :-)  not having read with attention the instructions (BTW: there are instructions in too many different places. Could be more comfortable to have them just in one place possibly with a lot of examples)

Grazie

Should adjectives be marked?

Hi Ginger,
A doubt:In Training 1 -Diseases Concept help- step 7 is indicated as correct to mark the adjective "abnormal" together with the symptom (in that case glucose level). What about other kinds of adjectives (i.e. severe, mild etc). Is it  correct to mark also those kinds of adjectives, as I do,   together (of course) with relative diseases and symptoms?

I was review some of the directions and I don't understand the wording/meaning of #2 under Disease Concept Marking Rules. I don't think it's just me, because my husband Gary, doesn't understand it eit

I was review some of the directions and I don't understand the wording/meaning of #2 under Disease Concept Marking Rules. I don't think it's just me, because my husband Gary, doesn't understand it either and he majored in English.
