This module will provide an introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the major organ systems as well as providing an overview of some common diseases.
This module will build upon the underpinning knowledge gained in the compulsory year I module PPS107 Foundations in Human Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology. It will provide the opportunity for students to develop and further their understanding of human anatomy and physiology to an advanced level. It will also allow the student to a gain more detailed knowledge of some of common diseases seen in the general population and the current treatment options available.
This is an introductory module to the structure and function of the human body, delivered with a focus on healthcare science.
This is an introductory module to the structure and function of the human body and how it is affected by disease, delivered with a focus on healthcare science.
This module provides a deeper insight into the anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of the nervous auditory and visual systems.
This module will prepare students for their role in clinical practice by ensuring they understand the pathophysiology of common conditions that result in referral to cardiovascular, respiratory and sleep services.
This module builds upon existing scientific and clinical knowledge, carrying on the progression to application of knowledge to the clinical environment. Pharmacological aspects of care and management will be incorporated. Students will be encouraged to scrutinize their own practice and discuss rationales for patient management by applying their knowledge of pharmacology and pathophysiology via group presentations.
This module provides an introduction to the skills and knowledge required for personal and professional development for health care providers.
This module aims to provide an understanding of the structure and function of the key systems which is a core requirement of osteopathic medicine. This module builds upon knowledge introduced in SHF109 Anatomy and Physiology 1, and develops the understanding of the structure and functions of the key systems of the body. This knowledge will underpin the pathophysiology and therapeutics covered in Year 2.
This module utilises lecture and laboratory based study to explore the anatomy and physiology of the major body systems. Furthermore, this module will be used to underpin the knowledge required to understand clinical presentation, diagnosis and osteopathic management of pathological conditions.
This module will explore the processes underlying pathological acute conditions, such as infection, immunity, metabolism, cancer and degeneration. Common conditions affecting whole body systems, such as musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, renal and gastro-intestinal, will be discussed in terms of pathogenesis, clinical presentations, impact upon the patient and its therapeutic management.
This module will explore the processes underlying pathological chronic conditions, such as metabolism, cancer and degeneration. Common conditions affecting whole body systems, such as musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, renal and gastro-intestinal, will be discussed in terms of pathogenesis, clinical presentations, impact upon the patient and its therapeutic management.
This module will introduce the student to normal anatomy and physiology, as well as key sociological and psychological concepts.
This module is designed to meet the specific needs of students on the BSc Health and Social Care degree. Unlike current anatomy and physiology modules it assumes no prior knowledge of the subject material and provides an overview of the structure and function of each organ system. The module enhances material delivered in lead lectures with laboratory sessions and makes use of the pre-existing Visual Bioscience software developed by the department. The module will also give an overview of common medical conditions.
This module provides basic skills and knowledge in travel health. Specifically it explores pre-travel risk assessment and risk management, common tropical diseases, travel vaccines and preventive health advice for travellers.
This module provides an introduction to the principles and practices of advanced practice. It is suitable for experienced clinical nurses or other allied health professionals who wish to expand their clinical skills and knowledge. This module will introduce students to the following subjects: anatomy, physiology, history taking, consultation skills, general examination and systems examination.
This module provides an underpinning knowledge of the basic biosciences which is essential for the skills of history taking and clinical assessment at advanced levels of practice.
This module will introduce the student to the structure and function of the human body and to the anatomical and physiological changes that occur throughout childbearing and the key principles of drug administration and infection control. A blended learning approach will be used to allow for greater flexibility and student autonomy in the learning process.
This module introduces learners to the anatomy and physiology of childbearing, including the changes that occur during pregnancy, and some of the minor medical complications which can arise during pregnancy. This module also explores the anatomy and physiology of the breast and breastfeeding, and the anatomy and physiology of birth and the puerperium.
The aim is for the student to build on previous experience and knowledge to develop new skills in which to begin to identify possible pregnancy and childbirth complications. By promoting personal and professional development the student will recognise practice limitations and situations that require referral to another professional. A Blended Learning approach will be used to allow for greater flexibility and student autonomy in the learning process.
This module supports student midwives to build on the knowledge gained in their education to date, in order to develop their clinical and theoretical knowledge further It incorporates the development of skills of critically analyzing the use of evidence for clinical practice. A blended learning approach will be used to allow for greater flexibility and student autonomy in the learning process.
This module will introduce the student to applied biological sciences. The module will begin with an exploration of the structure and function of the major organic compounds found in the human body, moving on to aspects of cellular physiology and basic pharmacology.
This module uses lecture and laboratory based study to explore the anatomy and physiology of the major organs and organ systems of the human body. Teaching will begin with the molecular and cellular basis of life, utilising appropriate techniques to illustrate the structure of organelles, cells and tissues. The major organs and organ systems will be examined and their role in homeostasis explained, with the importance of the interplay between different organs emphasised.
This module will develop knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. Teaching will build upon the lecture material delivered in year 1. The major organs and organ systems will be examined in detail, including relevant physical and biochemical processes.
This level 5 module builds upon existing scientific knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and physiology of the human body, obtained in level 4. This new module focuses primarily on the five vital organs (the brain, the heart, the lungs, the liver and the kidneys), and covers in depth, the pathophysiology of each organ, providing details of the diseases and disorders which may affect these key organs.
This level 5 module builds upon existing scientific knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and physiology of the human body, obtained in level 4. This new module focuses on abnormal states and pathophysiology of many of the body¿s organs and systems, and covers in depth, diseases and disorders which are clinically observed in these systems.
This level 6 module will cover the pathophysiology of the following organ systems and disease e.g. ¿ Nervous System ¿ Endocrine System ¿ Renal System ¿ Immunology ¿ Cancer
This module builds on the students¿ knowledge and understanding of human physiological processes which are fundamental to health and wellbeing. Students should extend their comprehension of systems failure and the adverse effect this has on maintenance of health. Students should have a basic understanding of human anatomy and physiology.
This module is used to underpin the applied knowledge required to understand the clinical presentation and management of specific long term and chronic conditions.
