HUMAN PATHOPHYSIOLOGY

HBS3HPT

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will examine disorders which may be experienced by individuals over the life-span, emphasizing the basic pathological processes that underlie diseases and the risk factors and contributing causes of disorders. Specifically, general pathological processes will be discussed with emphasis on disturbed function, adaptation to injury, inflammation, tissue healing, immunological disorders, neoplasia, fluid imbalance, thrombosis, embolism and vascular disorders. In addition to general pathological processes, specific pathological conditions of body systems e.g. cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, gastrointestinal and skeletal systems along with diabetes will be addressed. Students will consolidate and apply their knowledge of pathophysiology by communicating a disease state in authentic format to scientific peers and non-expert audiences.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Demonstrate an understanding of general pathological processes of human disease and tissue healing at a cellular and biochemical level and describe and apply how these processes may impact on basic clinical outcomes in an individual.
02. Apply the general principles of human disease to diseases of selected body systems and thereby understand and describe the likely clinical course of an afflicted individual.
03. Demonstrate effective communication skills by communicating scientific results, information, or arguments to a range of audiences, for a range of purposes, and using a variety of modes
04. Be accountable for learning and scientific work by being independent and self-directed learners working effectively, responsibly and safely in an individual and team context
