Endocrine Disorders
Endocrine Disorders

Share a case study from your clinical practice or from the literature on an Endocrine Disorders.

Discuss the psychopathology of the disorder, including the effects on the endocrine feedback system, and the role of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis.

Identify the pharmacologic agent(s) used to treat the disorder and how the pharmacologic agent(s) alters the psychopathology.

Therapeutics Across Australian Oncology



PowerPoint presentation on ‘Degree of Variability in Therapeutics across Australian Oncology Ambulatory Sites‘.

I require PhD PowerPoint presentation on the following topic ‘Degree of Variability in Therapeutics across Australian Oncology Ambulatory Sites’. I have uploaded the proposal with references.

If 1 page = 2 slides then I would like 6 pages= 12 slides with notes in each slide of what I’m going to say.

I have attached an example of what I need and also I need lots of schematic diagrams to put my point across.
