By the end of this activity, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate a factor as a potential confounder or effect modifier
  • Implement the 3 major criteria for confounding

Before beginning this activity, review the faculty notes and readings in the text on bias, confounding, and effect modification. You may want to draw the confounding diagram to help visualize relationships. Work through each of the steps to evaluate confounding, constructing 2 x 2 tables and calculating measures of association as required.

Determining if a factor is a confounder or effect modifier is not always obvious by “common sense” thinking. As you work through the logic and evaluate each of the criteria for confounding, ask yourself if your interpretations make sense. If the factor was a confounder, in what direction did it influence the exposure-disease association? Is it a logical influence? If the factor was an effect modifier, does the difference in relationship between groups of the factor actually make sense (i.e., is it plausible)?

    Application: Models of Addiction and the Assessment Process

    Due Sunday 01/24/16 No excuses!! Please… Any questions ask Ty

    Several models are prominent in the field of addictions; these models include the medical model, moral model, and the biopsychosocial model. A particular model advocated by an addictions professional will influence the professional’s choices of assessment methods and treatment of addiction.


    To prepare:Consider the following definition of addiction by Michael Miller, M.D., former president of the American Society of Addiction Medicine: “At its core, addiction is not just a social problem or a moral problem or a criminal problem. It is a brain problem whose behaviors manifest in all these others areas…The disease is about brains, not drugs. It is about underlying neurology, not outward actions” (Addiction Treatment Magazine, 2011 ).

    Assignment Directions:Review the article, “New Definition of Addiction Causing Controversy Among Doctors.” (See Reference) Research two articles that support or refute this position. Examine Miller’s statement and, based on your research, identify which model it reflects and the implications for the assessment process. (See attached for addiction models)

    Submit by Day 7 a 3- to 4-page paper (Not including title or ref. pg.) that includes the following: A brief description of the articles you chose and an explanation of their significance to Miller’s definition An explanation of the model reflected in Miller’s statement and its implications for the assessment process An explanation of the controversy that exists between models of addiction and their effects on assessment An explanation of the relationship between the models of addiction and assessment processes

    Cite your sources using APA guidelines including citing within paper).

    lyme disease case study

    A 38-year-old male had a 3-week history of fatigue and lethargy with intermittent complaints of headache, fever, chills, myalgia, and arthralgia. According to the history, the patient’s symptoms began shortly after a camping vacation. He recalled a bug bite and rash on his thigh immediately after the trip. The following studies were ordered:

    Studies Results Lyme disease test, Elevated IgM antibody titers against Borrelia burgdorferi (normal: low) Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), 30 mm/hour (normal: ≤15 mm/hour) Aspartate aminotransferase (AST), 32 units/L (normal: 8-20 units/L) Hemoglobin (Hgb), 12 g/dL (normal: 14-18 g/dL) Hematocrit (Hct), 36% (normal: 42%-52%) Rheumatoid factor (RF), Negative (normal: negative) Antinuclear antibodies (ANA), Negative (normal: negative)

    Diagnostic Analysis

    Based on the patient’s history of camping in the woods and an insect bite and rash on the thigh, Lyme disease was suspected. Early in the course of this disease, testing for specific immunoglobulin (Ig) M antibodies against B. burgdorferi is the most helpful in diagnosing Lyme disease. An elevated ESR, increased AST levels, and mild anemia are frequently seen early in this disease. RF and ANA abnormalities are usually absent.

    Critical Thinking Questions

    1. What is the cardinal sign of Lyme disease? (always on the boards)

    2. At what stages of Lyme disease are the IgG and IgM antibodies elevated?

    3. Why was the ESR elevated?

    4. What is the Therapeutic goal for Lyme Disease and what is the recommended treatment.

    Discussion board 10

    Remember the discussion could be a list 300 words.

    Pick one of the findings/theories discussed in Chapter 9 and discuss how you think it applies to everyday life. Have you seen similar evidence in everyday situations? What do the finding/theory mean to everyday interactions? Do you think the information derived from the finding/theory is useful to know for most people? Why/why not? How will knowing about this finding/theory change the way you think?






    ……………….Answer Preview……………..

    The theory of parental investment theory explores how women usually take care of their offspring for a long period of time than men. This is brought about by the fact parenting in women start from the time of pregnancy whereby it is the woman who carries the baby for the nine months. This is different in men since they interact with the kid after birth .This explains why children are usually attached more to their mothers than to their fathers. Women also have ability to learn the emotions of….

    CHAPTER 17: Questions

    1) What kinds of landscape features are characteristic of glacial erosion?

    2) What kinds of landscape features are characteristic of glacial deposition?

    3) Consider a lecture hall filled with 100 students, 50 men and 50 women.
    When we say that the ratio of men to women (men/women) is 1:1 we mean that there are the same number of men as there are women.

    Now, if 25 women leave the room, then there are only 75 people left and the ratio of men to women would be 50/25, or 2:1. Now there are twice as many men as there are women in the room.
    OK, get ready to think!
    Consider an OCEAN that is filled with two different kinds of water molecules—
    H216O and H218O
    (This is because there are two kinds of oxygen, heavy and light, known as 16O and 18O)

    Answer the following questions:

    A) Which is heavier, H216O or H218O?
    B) Which is more likely to leave the ocean during evaporation. H216O or H218O?
    C) If the evaporated molecule gets trapped in glacial ice during cold time periods, i.e. not allowed to return to the sea, THEN which kind of water molecule becomes enriched in the remaining ocean water? H216O or H218O?

    4) A particular level in a deep-sea core has an unusually high ratio of 18O relative to 16O—does this portion of the core represent a global warm-period or a global cool-period?

    5) Look at Fig 17.6 (titled “Climate Changes During the Cenozoic”) and compare it to Figure 18.5 (“Cenozoic Vegetation/Climate”) in the next chapter. Both plots of temperature (one based on O-isotopes and one based on types of fossil plants) mark a significant cooling even in the Cenozoic. When does this cooling occur? Be as specific as possible.

    6) Not all climate change occurs on the scale of Milankovitch Cycles. Shorter term changes (10’s to 100’s of years) can involve big temperature fluctuations (1-5 degrees).

    What do you think could cause short-term climate change on the order of decades or centuries?

    CHAPTER 18: Questions

    A couple of nice web sites to accompany your textbook chapter—
    http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/mammal/mammal.html (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

    (In particular, the site above is worth poking around. It will help prepare you for the exam.)

    http://www.ultimateungulate.com/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

    1) Mammals first appear in the Mesozoic Era, which is the so-called “age of dinosaurs.”
    If they first appear in the Mesozoic, then why is the Cenozoic so often referred to as the “Age of Mammals”??

    2) Of the four mammal groups–Marsupials/Multituberculates/Monotremes/Eutheria—

    A) Which group do humans belong to?
    B) Which group no longer exists (i.e. is extinct)

    3) Consider an ecological setting where we have certain predators and prey.

    If the prey become faster—literally faster runners—then what would you expect of the predators? Would they, over time, become faster or slower?

    4) Look at Table 18.1 which details some trends in mammalian evolution during the Cenozoic. Associated with the lengthening of limbs, there is a trend towards “digitigrade” locomotion.

    What is digitigrade locomotion and is it related to your answer to the previous question?

    5) Ungulates come in two general types (artio- and perrisodactyls). What are ungulates?

    Did the ratio of these two types remain constant through the Cenozoic?

    6) Compared to reptiles, WHY do mammals need to eat more frequently?

    CHAPTER 19: Questions

    1) They sound so similar—hominid and hominoid—but they’re different!

    What is a hominid?
    What is a hominoid?

    2) How far back in the fossil record do we find the very broad group of animals known as “Primates”?

    How far back do we find the more specific group called hominids?

    3) Go on-line and do a search in order to learn about the famous Piltdown Hoax—a rather cruel trick in which a chimpanzee jaw was crudely attached to a relatively modern human skull, and then touted as an actual early human fossil!

    Some historians of science have pointed out that “Piltdown Man” remained in the scientific literature for an unusually long period of time, even though evidence demonstrating the absurdity of the “fossil” was quickly established.

    Here’s the QUESTION–
    Why were scientists resistant to giving up on Piltdown? Why did it take them so long to say “yeah, this stupid thing is not real, it is nothing more than a hoax!” ?

    (Hint: They had thought that the Piltdown fossil supported an important feature of human evolultion….which turned out to be wrong!)

    4) Homo sapiens refers to both genus and species. Genus=Homo, species=sapiens.

    Lots of different critters within the genus Homo.

    For example: Homo habilis, Homo ergaster, Homo heidelbergensis, Homo neanderthalensis, etc.!

    Today, there is only us (H. sapiens), but how far back in the geologic record does one have to go in order to find multiple co-existing species within the genus Homo? Explain.
