A DRUG Brochure Project
A DRUG Brochure Project
Part 1 (Group of 4) Everyone must complete their own brochure
Utilize the Brochure Rubric posted under Program Resources on Blackboard. Use a brochure template that you can adjust to complete the objectives. You will be writing the information for the client so use language they can understand. Or, explain it in layman’s terms.
The brochure should be able to read correctly and each section should flow into the next.
On the back, put your name, course, Keiser University Clearwater. Do not use the Keiser logo! Your references will also go on the back page, written in APA format.
Include name of medication, both Brand and generic. Use some color and pictures to make it interesting.
Give a brief description of the medication and how it works.
Purpose of medication (uses), when and how to take medication, side effects and when to call the doctor. This is your client education section. Explain what they need to know. Include interactions and precautions. Don’t make a blanket statement like “Take medication as directed”. You need to direct them.
Dr Kaiser can help you with APA formatting if you can’t figure it out yourself.
Part 2 (Group of 4)
You will create a commercial of the medication that you have been assigned.
The video should be between 3-5 minutes.
Please upload your commercial to Youtube or another program that will allow you to share the video during class. Everyone must participate in the video.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
