This unit introduces students to human growth and physical development, major body systems and health assessment across the lifespan. Approaches to health assessment will be introduced, with the integration of foundational anatomy and physiology. Students will begin to develop the capacity to utilise a clinical reasoning framework and person-centred approach to conduct a focused health interview, perform physical assessments and communicate assessment findings.
