Some staff are not able to check emails every day and staff are not required tocheck emails outside of normal office hours, on weekends, or public holidays. Please be patientwhen waiting for a response.Unit rationale, description and aim: Health professionals need to have an understanding ofdisease processes and drug action in order to prevent and manage diseases, promote health andcare for their patients/clients. In this unit students will extend their knowledge of the human body bydeveloping an understanding of pathophysiology and pharmacology with respect to selectedNational Health Priority (NHP) areas and Quality Use of Medicines (QUM). The influence of lifespanchanges will also be introduced in the context of these areas and drug administration. Basicprinciples of microbiology will be linked to infection control practices. Students will apply scientificknowledge to understand disease processes and their pharmacological management for successfulprogression to later units in their respective courses.Teaching team: Lecturer’s nameOffice LocationEmailTelephoneMichael Larkin302.1.316209 [email protected] ShamoonEmail is the bestcontact for these [email protected] Mode/Attendance pattern: This is an online unit entailing 3 one-hour recorded lectures and 1 twohour workshop every week over a ten-week semester. There is also an optional one-hour live drop-insession with the lecturer each week.The weekly workshops are designed for active learning. Independent and group work will beencouraged in these small classes for maximum achievement of learning outcomes and graduateattributes. Note that the same content is not always covered in lectures and workshops, so it isimportant for you to attend all types of classes to get the whole picture in a given topic.Duration: 5 contact hours per week, or equivalent, for 10 weeks.You should anticipate undertaking 150 hours of study for this unit, including class attendance,readings and assignment preparation.Attendance: Participation in all classes is expected, including listening to lecture recordings.LEARNING OUTCOMESOn successful completion of this unit, you should be able to:LO1 Describe basic principles of pharmacology with respect to Quality Use of Medicines (QUM)(GA4, GA5)LO2 Describe the pathophysiology of selected National Health Priority areas to explain theirrespective clinical manifestations and pharmacological management (GA4, GA9)LO3 Explain how physiological changes that occur across the lifespan impact on diseaseprocesses and drug administration (GA4, GA9)Page 3 of 17 Version:FINALLO4 Relate microbiological principles to infection control practices (GA4, GA5)Page 4 of 17 Version:FINALGRADUATE ATTRIBUTESEach unit in your course contributes in some way to the development of the ACU GraduateAttributes, which you should demonstrate by the time you complete your course. All Australianuniversities have their expected graduate attributes – ACU’s Graduate Attributes have a greateremphasis on ethical behaviour and community responsibility than those of many other universities.All of your units will enable you to develop some attributes.On successful completion of this unit, you should have developed your ability to:GA4 think critically and reflectivelyGA5 demonstrate values, knowledge, skills and attitudes appropriate to the discipline and/orprofessionGA9 demonstrate effective communication in oral and written English language and visual mediaAustralian Nurses’ and Midwifery Council Competency Standards for the Registered Nursedeveloped in this unit are: ANMC Competency Standards:Learning Outcomes:Professional Practice1, 2, 3, 4, 5Critical Thinking and Analysis2, 4, 5Provision and Coordination of Care1, 2, 3, 4, 5Collaborative and Therapeutic Practice1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Interprofessional Learning:In this second science unit, you will encounter students from a variety of healthspecialisations, including nursing, midwifery, paramedicine, and public health. As the namesuggests, inter-professional education is about bringing students together from a range ofdisciplinary backgrounds to learn alongside one another in the same classroom. It is hopedthat through the provision of quality inter-professional learning opportunities, you will gain abetter understanding of your own role in a patient/client care setting, as well as an awarenessof the roles that other health professionals might play and how together you can optimisepatient/client care. In this way, we hope to see you leave ACU well and truly prepared to workas a member of an inter-professional health care team, which is what will be expected of youonce you are in the workforce. Interprofessional learning activities at ACU have beendeveloped specifically to enhance the way that you communicate and work with students fromother health specialisations, as well as your own. Activities provide an opportunity for you tolearn from and with students from each of the other disciplines in your classroom. You will beencouraged to communicate openly, to participate in class discussions, and to get to knowstudents who are enrolled in a variety of health-related degrees. We encourage you todevelop your teamwork, communication, and problem-solving skills together.Page 5 of 17 Version:FINALCONTENTTopics will include those related to National Health Priority areas, their lifespan considerations, theirpathophysiology and their pharmacological management:Principles of pathophysiology• Inflammation and cell death• Oedema• Healing• ThrombosisPrinciples of pharmacology• Pharmacokinetics• Pharmacodynamics• Adverse drug reactions• Drug interactionsMicrobiological principles• Prevention and control of infection• Host-microbe interactionsAsthma• Regulation of airway resistanceMusculoskeletal conditions• Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis• Traumatic and pathological fractures• OsteoporosisNeoplasms• Principles of neoplasia; benign and malignant tumoursDiabetes mellitus• Pathophysiology and complications of diabetes mellitus• Differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitusCardiovascular health• Alterations in haemostasis and oxygenation• Haemodynamic derangements with emphasis on atherosclerosis, hypertension, coronaryartery disease, and strokeMental health• Alterations in nervous system function, including changes to neurotransmission underlyingdepression, dementia, and addictionObesity• Common contributors to obesity and how obesity contributes to and interacts with otherchronic health conditionsPage 6 of 17 Version:FINALQUALITY ASSURANCE AND STUDENT FEEDBACKThis unit has been evaluated through the ‘Student Evaluation of Learning and Teaching’ (SELT) onlinesurveys.This unit received positive feedback from students, and therefore we will continue to deliver the unitas we have previously and provide students with a stimulating and effective learning environment.Some of the workshop activities have also been revised to better accommodate student needs. Theteaching team has also changed the rubric and overall structure of the vodcast presentation.SELT surveys are usually conducted at the end of the teaching period. Your practical and constructivefeedback is valuable to improve the quality of the unit. Please ensure you complete the SELT surveyfor the unit. You can also provide feedback at other times to the unit lecturers, course coordinatorsand/or through student representatives.Peer-Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)Whether you are a top performer or could use some improvement, you will benefit from attendingPASS. PASS is a voluntary program that is facilitated by senior students who have excelled in thissubject. PASS Leaders prepare fun weekly activities to help you understand the content. It’s their jobto make it as interesting as possible! You work together in groups (you might even make a friend ortwo!) and come together with other students who will more than likely have the same questions asyou. Sessions are only 50 minutes long, you can attend as many as you like, and they are FREE!Further information about PASS is available on LEO.LEARNING AND TEACHING STRATEGY AND RATIONALELectures, web-based learning and interactive workshops will be scheduled over a ten-weeksemester. This unit uses an active approach with online recorded lectures and face to faceworkshop classes (during the COVID-19 situation) that are supported by online LEO activities.Lectures allow teachers to convey the foundations of each topic so that students can gain an overallunderstanding and make connections between different components. Lecture chat sessions provideopportunities for students to check their understanding and ask questions. Workshop classes willconsolidate student learning in a supporting environment. A series of pre-class activities will allowstudents to build foundational knowledge and evaluate their understanding in order to successfullyundertake workshop classes. In workshop classes, students will work collaboratively and engage inactivities such as reading, writing, discussion or problem solving to promote analysis, synthesis andevaluation of class content. Case studies will also be used so that students apply their knowledgeto real world situations. Online LEO activities such as feedback quizzes will provide students withfeedback regarding their understanding of the relevant topic.LECTURE CAPTURELectures for this unit have been or will be recorded via Echo360 and will be available to studentsonline via the link on the LEO webpage for BIOL122.Page 7 of 17 Version:FINALSCHEDULEFor the most up-to-date information, please check your LEO unit, and note advice from yourlecturing and tutoring staff for changes to this schedule.

Students must obtain an aggregate mark of equal to or greater than 50% for these threeassessment tasks.The assessment strategy used allows students to progressively develop their knowledge ofpathophysiology and pharmacology. The first, online assessment task is divided into two parts andprimarily focusses on knowledge acquisition and assimilation. Part A is an early assessment task,which enables students to receive timely feedback regarding their understanding of foundationalcontent and their progress in the unit whereas part B will be held later in the semester and willassess students’ ability to relate pathophysiology principles to selected National Health Priorityareas and their pharmacological management. The second assessment task is a vodcast, wherestudents produce a 7-minute voice recording with accompanying visual material based on a personwho has a disease/condition that is a National Health Priority area. This assessment task allowsstudents to apply their knowledge of pathophysiology and pharmacology to a real situation. Thefinal assessment task is the end-of-semester worksheet, which will assess integration andapplication of key concepts covered in this unit. This open book assessment allows students time toconnect and integrate different aspects of the content.SUPPLEMENTARY ASSESSMENTIf your final grade is between 45 and 49%, you may be eligible for a supplementary assessment toprovide you with another opportunity to pass the unit. The supplementary assessment will be in theform of an additional, new assessment task sat during the deferred exam period. This assessmenttask will assess minimal competence in all learning outcomes of the unit. You must score 50% orgreater on this assessment task to pass the unit. If you pass this task, your grade will convert fromNF to PA, and your final percentage will be recorded as 50%.To be eligible for a supplementary assessment, you cannot fail any other unit in the semester andmust also successfully meet the attendance requirements of the unit (See section 21 ofhttps://www.acu.edu.au/handbook/handbook-2021/policies-and-general-information/assessment—policy-and-procedure/assessment-procedures). Please note that the offering of a supplementaryassessment is subject to other results being finalized after the main university results are released.If a student is offered a supplementary assessment but subsequently fails another unit whose markis released prior to the completion of a supplementary assessment, then this will deem the studentineligible for any supplementary assessments.Note: University policy requires students to be available throughout the periods designated forcentral examinations, including supplementary and deferred examinations, as published in thecommon academic calendar. Therefore, if you are offered a supplementary assessment, it is ourexpectation that you are available at this time; vacations or failure to check your ACU email accountare not considered acceptable reasons for special consideration.Page 9 of 17 Version:FINALELECTRONIC SUBMISSION, MARKING AND RETURNThere will be electronic submission, marking and return of feedback used for this unit.
