Bloodborne Pathogens: Risks of Exposure and Means of Transmission
In this interactive object, learners read about the occupations that are most at risk for bloodborne pathogen exposure. They also read about the most common pathogens and how they are transmitted. This learning object is based on information from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Learners click on the root word of a medical term in the left-hand column and drag it to its definition in the right-hand column. There is a time limit, so students will need to train themselves to recognize these root words quickly. Students may repeat the activity as often as they wish. A total of 74 terms are given in random order.
