PATHOPHYSIOLOGY

HBS2PAT

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject provides you 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 and disorders. Specific pathological conditions of body systems e.g. nervous, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, hepatic and skeletal systems along with diabetes will be addressed. A variety of teaching methods; including interactive lectures, on-line video content, on-line quizzes, clicker workshops and discipline-specific workshops will be delivered in this subject.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply the principles of General Pathophysiology to human disorders and reparative states, describing how these general pathophysiologic processes impact on possible clinical courses and outcomes in an afflicted individual.

Activities:
Students will undertake two online quizzes based on interactive sessions (lectures), online video and Workshop content. 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 5-6 individuals.

02. Explain cellular and biochemical changes that underlie the development of systemic diseases (i.e. Systemic Pathophysiology) and relate these changes to the likely clinical course and outcomes of an afflicted individual.

Activities:
Students will undertake three online quizzes based on interactive sessions (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. Workshops will mostly involve the use of clicker technology. Students undertake these Workshops in teams comprising 5-6 individuals.
