The aim of this module is to provide a foundation upon which you can develop your ability to assess and manage patients/clients health status by developing your understanding of how physiological mechanisms operate to maintain homeostasis at both cellular and systemic level.
You will need to complete an induction prior to commencement of your first module. We have a comprehensive online induction package to welcome you to both the University and your programme of study. Alternatively classroom-based induction days take place at our Lancaster and Carlisle campuses and are usually scheduled for the first week of each semester.
The running of this module is dependent on there being sufficient numbers of interest.
This module forms a logical platform to progress to HPHG6030 Pathophysiology and Disease in Practice, in which disease processes are considered from the perspective of deviations from homeostasis.
