Foundations in Human Anatomy, Physiology and Pathophysiology
This module will provide an introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the major organ systems as well as providing an overview of some common diseases.
Professional Practice 1
This is an introductory module that prepares students for work in the healthcare science clinical practice environment.
Anatomy and Physiology for Healthcare Science
This is an introductory module to the structure and function of the human body, delivered with a focus on healthcare science.
Pathophysiology for Healthcare Science
This is an introductory module to the structure and function of the human body and how it is affected by disease, delivered with a focus on healthcare science.
Introduction to Cardiovascular Science
This module will introduce students to the theory and practice of cardiovascular science. Students will apply knowledge of anatomy, physiology and instrumentation to understand the principles and techniques of basic diagnostic investigations. This will be expanded in subsequent cardiology modules in order to develop the skills and attitudes required for safe and effective practice.
Pathophysiology of Common Cardiovascular and Respiratory Conditions
This module will prepare students for their role in clinical practice by ensuring they understand the pathophysiology of common conditions that result in referral to cardiovascular, respiratory and sleep services.
Measurement of Resting Cardiovascular Function
This module builds on knowledge and skills gained in SHC157 Introduction to Cardiovascular Science. Students will explore electrocardiography and blood pressure recording in greater depth with a particular focus on differentiation of normal and abnormal findings. Skills labs will allow students to develop competence in the clinical techniques necessary for placement activity.
Measurement of Cardiovascular Function During Provocation Testing
This module builds on knowledge and skills gained in SHC157 Introduction to Cardiovascular Science. Students will explore ambulatory and exercise electrocardiography as well as ambulatory blood pressure recording. Skills labs will allow students to develop competence in the clinical techniques necessary for placement activity.
Arrhythmia Diagnosis and Management
This module build on the skills and knowledge gained during level 1 and 2 cardiology modules. Students will explore the principles and practice of arrhythmia diagnosis and management. There is a strong focus on advancing ECG interpretation skills and on bradycardia device implantation. Pathophysiology knowledge will be advanced and related to arrhythmias. Students will be expected to critically analyse data and formulate reports.
Evidence-Based Practice in Cardiology
The module will prepare students for their professional role as a healthcare science practitioner in Cardiology. Students will gain an understanding of their role in the patient pathway and the importance of evidence-based practice that considers patient-centred care.
Anatomy and Physiology 1
This module utilises lecture and laboratory based study to explore the anatomy and physiology of the major body systems. Furthermore, this module will be used to underpin the knowledge required to understand clinical presentation, diagnosis and osteopathic management of pathological conditions.
Introduction to the Fundamentals of Nursing Practice (Child)
This core module addresses specific keys areas relating to the fundamentals of nursing practice and clinical exposure. The module will introduce students to the profession of nursing, the underpinning values of the nursing profession and the professional codes of practice. The importance of patient dignity, respect, care and compassion will be integrated throughout the module and related to safe, person-centred care. The module will introduce the students to meeting the client/service user¿s physical and emotional needs.
Designing and Evaluating Your Teaching
This module aims to develop the student¿s awareness of the key issues, principles and values of quality teaching in the workplace setting, and their ability to reflect upon, analyse and interpret their own professional practice in healthcare and education using a range of theoretical frameworks.
Teaching and Learning for the Health Professions' Educators
This module has been designed to prepare educators from a variety of health professions for a role in teaching, supervising and assessing students and trainees in practice and academic settings. It aims to prepare educators to work within a developmental framework in the context of interprofessional learning and modern day health services. This module will form part of the Postgraduate Certificate in Education for the Health Professions.
Researching Educational Practice
This module aims to develop participants¿ awareness of the key issues, principles and practice of educational research and to provide the knowledge and understanding required to conduct small-scale research into their own practice.
Dissertation - Professional Education in Practice and/or Academic Settings
This is essentially a module of independent study for students doing the MA Education for the Health Professions. The module will enable participants to show that they can design, conduct and present a sustained conceptual exploration of a chosen study topic
