PATHOPHYSIOLOGIC BASIS OF DISEASE

HBS3PBD

2017

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject provides students with the fundamental principles of the underlining mechanisms of human disease and how these mechanisms impact on clinical outcomes. Emphasis begins with general disease processes including cell injury, cell adaptations, inflammation, immunopathology, tissue healing, neoplasia and circulatory disturbances. Specific pathological conditions of body systems e.g. cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous and skeletal systems along with diabetes will be addressed.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply the principles of General Pathology to selected human disorders and reparative states. You will be able to describe and understand the general principles of disease processes and tissue healing and thereby describe how these general pathologic processes impact on possible clinical courses and outcomes in an afflicted individual.

Activities:
Students will undertake two online quizzes based on interactive session (lecture), online video and Workshop content. Cumulative Case Study Enquiries will also be undertaken in Workshops and these Enquiries reflect what is covered in interactive sessions (lectures) and online videos; however, there will also be extra content that will not be covered in lectures or online videos. Workshops will mostly involve the use of clicker technology. Students undertake these Workshops in teams comprising 4 individuals. There is no formal assessment of these Workshops; they are solely to re-enforce and complement interactive session (lecture) and online video content.

02. Apply the principles of General Pathology to human diseases of selected body systems. You will be able to describe and understand the cellular and biochemical changes that underlie the development of systemic diseases and in doing so, be able to relate these above changes to the likely clinical course and outcomes of an afflicted individual.

Activities:
Students will undertake three online quizzes based on interactive session (lectures), online video and Workshop content. Cumulative Case Study Enquiries will also be undertaken in Workshops and these Enquiries reflect what is covered in interactive sessions (lectures) and online videos; however, there will also be extra content that will not be covered in lectures or online videos.
