Health Assessment 2 CNA155


This unit builds on the key concepts introduced in CNA152: Health Assessment 1 with students continuing to develop their understanding of major body systems and health assessment across the lifespan. Approaches to health assessment will be further matured with the integration of functional anatomy. Students will continue to develop their understanding of the clinical reasoning cycle and its application through a person-centred approach to conducting focused health interviews, physical assessments and the communication of assessment findings.
