HS20 – DT2 – Recognize the importance of interpreting diagnostic findings to support treatment options.
Key vocabulary – diagnostic
assessment tool, ultrasound,
dialysis, radiation therapy,
pathology, traditional health,
complementary health, Western
The students will understand that:
 There are different ways to interpret
 Diagnosis leads to effective
 Sometimes mistakes happen in
diagnosis and treatment and these
mistakes have implications for
patients and care
 There are various perspectives to
healthcare, which can affect
diagnosis and treatment
 Treatment can be a multi-step
approach, with continued monitoring
being an essential part of the
 Role plays, simulations and case
studies are valid way to practice and
determine best treatment options
Prior knowledge – interpreting
information, common health
concerns, examples of healthcare
Concepts/ Skills to be learned –
data interpretation, treatment
options for various illnesses,
incorrect diagnosis, multiple
healthcare perspectives, how to role
play, make a simulation or engage in
a case study
Suggest explanations based on interpretation of data from
diagnostic assessment tools. (e.g. identifying a broken bone in an
x-ray, ultrasound of a pregnancy to determine number of fetuses
and identifying high blood pressure based on given values)
Describe how treatment options (e.g., dialysis, radiation therapy,
surgery, and organ transplants) have been developed to address
specific health care issues.
Identify tools and procedures used to assist health care providers
in monitoring the progression of a specific pathology and the
treatment options available at each stage.
Interpret diagnostic results and choose an appropriate course of
action (e.g., role-play, simulation and case study).
Discuss personal and societal implications of incorrect
interpretation of diagnostic findings (e.g., incorrect diagnosis,
improper treatment, and psychological effect on patient).
Describe various treatments that might be prescribed in Western
traditional, and complementary and alternative approaches to
health care with respect to a specific pathology.
