Cradle Coast, Launceston, Rozelle - Sydney, Hobart
In Anatomy and Physiology for Health Care 2, you will continue learning the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the human body, focusing on the contributions of the cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems to health and wellbeing across the lifespan. Interrelationships between these and other organ systems for maintaining homeostasis and performing activities of living will be emphasised, along with the relevance of concepts to aspects of health care. You will have opportunities to apply your knowledge as you analyse health care scenarios and will expand your vocabulary (as is used within health care settings) for effectively communicating biological information. The foundation knowledge and critical thinking skills that you develop in this unit will support your clinical reasoning and ongoing learning in other units within your course and your practice as a health professional.
