Together with 91529 and 91530, this subject shares the aim of providing an overview of the pathophysiology and treatment of some commonly occurring disorders of the major body systems. This information is provided in the context of how the disorder affects normal/healthy structure and function, and so reinforces prior study of basic anatomy and physiology in healthy individuals. The subject provides students with the capacity to apply pathophysiological knowledge and concepts to acute and chronic care patients in clinical settings. It also extends this framework to areas that are consequences of disease processes, such as fever, impaired wound healing and inflammation. It also provides the underpinning clinical science of nursing practice in areas including infection control, medication and health promotion.
