Anatomy and Physiology for Health Care 2 CXA136

Cradle Coast, Hobart, Launceston, Rozelle - Sydney

Introduction

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.

Learning Outcomes

  • Relate structures of the cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems of the body to their functions, including variations across the lifespan.
  • Explain the complementary relationships between the cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, reproductive, and other relevant organ systems to maintain homeostasis, health and wellbeing.
  • Analyse healthcare scenarios to differentiate between normal and altered structure and function of the cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems.
  • Communicate information related to the structure and function of the cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems using scientific and clinical terminology.

Teaching

Teaching Pattern

This unit is delivered in a blended delivery mode comprising of face-to-face intensives as well as content delivered online via MyLO (My Learning Online). You are expected to devote around 10 hours per week to the study materials, assessment tasks and self-directed learning.
You can interact with the online content at any time, which will be in a modularised format. Online tutorials/webinars will provide further opportunity to engage with educators and peers and consolidate your knowledge of the online presentations and readings. The format and content of these sessions will be advertised through MyLO announcements.

All Intensives in the Bachelor of Nursing are condensed face to face campus experiences. Intensives are usually scheduled between Monday and Friday (see individual unit calendars). Intensives provide an opportunity for -student engagement, networking with staff and peers, intraprofessional and interprofessional learning opportunities and engaging with guest speakers. Intensives are designed to provide you with an opportunity to apply theory to practice and develop your skills in the practice of nursing. The Intensives provide a key role in facilitating the development of your skills, knowledge and understanding. This is in preparation for both your upcoming Professional Experience Placements and your ongoing engagement in the Bachelor of Nursing. 

In the interests of both personal and public safety, as a registered nursing student with AHPRA you have a professional responsibility and duty as part of your regulatory obligations to ensure the provision of safe and effective nursing care to the public. Therefore, your attendance at Intensives is expected and will be monitored. 


Whilst the unit provides a weekly guide, it is expected that you set your own goals to meet the unit learning outcomes. You are however, expected to have engaged with the relevant online learning activities before you attend the Intensives.

Intensives – 3 weeks for 3 hours per week.

Independent learning – 10 hours per week (12 weeks)
