PATHOPHYSIOLOGY, ANATOMY AND NEUROSCIENCES

HBS3PAN

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, concepts introduced in HBS1HBA and HBS1HBB will be applied to disease processes, anatomy of the head and neck and neurosciences. Pathophysiology provides the fundamental concepts and principles of disease. General processes are emphasised including cell injury, cell adaptations, inflammation, infection, tissue healing, immunological disorders, neoplasia, oedema, thrombosis, embolism, atherosclerosis and infarction. In anatomy and neurosciences, emphasis is placed on the application of anatomical principles and relevant physiological processes in order to correlate structure with function in developing an understanding of the bases of everyday activities and on developing students' abilities to predict the effects of impaired structure and function. This subject provides students with a background for therapeutic intervention in disorders of relevance to occupational therapy.
