CLINICAL ANATOMY AND NEUROSCIENCES

HBS2CAN

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will develop an understanding of the functional anatomy and neurosciences relevant to Orthoptics and the role of the central and peripheral nervous system in sensory and motor function.  The concepts of human structure and function introduced in HBS1HBA and HBS1HBB will be applied to the head, orbit, brain and nervous systems.  Emphasis will be placed on developing the students abilities to predict the effects of impaired structure and function in order to assist in clinical reasoning, practice and consultation in Orthoptics.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of the anatomical organisation of the orbit related to vision.

Activities:
lectorials, workshops. Including use of anatomical models, cadavers and on-line resources (e.g. Anatomy TV) to help visualize the structures of the orbit.

02. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of the regional anatomy of the face and skull, including the involvement in neurovascular supply.

Activities:
lectorials, workshops. Including use of anatomical models, cadavers and on-line resources (e.g. Anatomy TV) to help visualize the structures of the head and neck.

03. Apply relevant anatomical principles to describe normal structure and function of body systems within the nervous system, including its role in sensory and motor communication.

Activities:
lectorials, workshops. Including use of anatomical models, cadavers and on-line resources (e.g. Anatomy TV) to help visualize the structures of the nervous system.

04. Apply observational and communication skills, including appropriate medical terminology, to make accurate observations of anatomical structures or events and infer their relationship to function using cadaveric material, the living body or medical imaging in a laboratory.

Activities:
Workshops involving team discussion and the use of models, cadaveric material and surface anatomy models.
