15 credits at level HE7
This 15 credit module allows the students to gain knowledge and understanding in the areas of anatomy and physiology of human body with special reference to the application of medical devices; Infection and infection control materials; Sterilisation; Healthcare management; and Sport science and rehabilitation.
Fundamental understanding of anatomy and physiology of human body that relates to medical device engineering.
Fundamental aspects of hospital infection control medical devices.
Basic management of medical devices.
General medical devices used in sports and rehabilitation.
Module will be delivered in the form of short courses and workshops. Each short course will be self contained. The short courses will be of 2.5 days duration. Assignment in the form of Integrated Learning Package (ILP) will be provided so that participants would be able to complete the work within three months after the start of this module. The module will be assessed by completion of the ILP that must not be less than 2000 words. ILP consists of three components in which Part 1 examines candidate’s basic understanding of the concept, principles and awareness of the module, Part 2 requires probing and investigating type answers which reflect deep understanding of the subject and Part 3 tests the candidate’s ability to digest, analyze and criticize the state of the affairs and demonstrate ability to defend, challenge and offer suggestions. In addition, individual or group seminar presentations will be organised to assess the candidate’s knowledge and attainment.
