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 and disorders. Specific pathological conditions of body systems e.g. nervous, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, hepatic and skeletal systems along with diabetes will be addressed.

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

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