Anti-requisite(s): 92713 Applied Pathophysiology in Practice



This subject is designed to advance students’ clinical practice by developing their understanding of key pathophysiological processes that result in clinical manifestations of disease. Building on prerequisite knowledge and principles of normal anatomy and physiology of the human body, students critically evaluate the presentation and management of patients within their clinical context.

The physiological determinants that predispose or protect people from illness are explored and analysed across the lifespan and in relation to Indigenous Australians’ health. The pathophysiological basis for the use of key diagnostic methodologies and the mechanism of action of important treatment modalities are considered using applied case studies that align with contemporary practice.
