Note:

Unit delivery is subject to sufficient enrolment numbers.

Introduction

This unit will explore the general functions of the body systems, emphasising the relationship between structure and function. System health and normal variation will be investigated as the basis for understanding human development and the alterations in structure and function that occur with injury, illness and disease. This unit will provide you with foundational knowledge to assist you to understand the purpose of therapeutic interventions, the relationship between biological evidence and support planning, as well as providing the basis for understanding more complex challenges to physical and mental health.
