This module will extend the theories and concepts introduced in the level 1 module Physical Activity and Health 1. It aims to further develop understanding of the role that physical activity can play in the management of a range of chronic disorders.
A consideration of the pathophysiology, management, functional consequence and exercise response of a range of chronic disorders to the following systems:
In order that the students comprehend the fundamental concepts and gain an appropriate knowledge base topics will be introduced by the module tutor through lectures. Understanding of this material will be explored and further developed through a combination of tutor and student led seminars and case study exercises. Direction will be provided in relation to appropriate reading and research but this may be considered a minimum. Students would be expected to demonstrate independence in their study and extend their reading and research beyond that indicated. Case study analysis will be prominent in this module allowing for demonstration of application of understanding. Tutorials will allow for guidance and feedback on progression within the module.
The learning hours for this module will be made up of the following components:
Lectures 10 x 1 hours = 10
Seminar/Case Study 10 x 2 hours = 20
Tutorials 2 x 3 hours = 6
Background reading 10 x 4 hours = 40
Lecture/Seminar preparation 10 x 4 hours = 40
Coursework preparation 1 x 41 hours = 41
Examination preparation 1 x 41 hours = 41
Examination 1 x 2 hours = 2
Learning outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 will be assessed by examination and essay. The examination will require students to provide an outline of the pathophysiology, management, functional implications and exercise response to a range of chronic disorders. The essay will require students to make a more detailed response with regard to a single chronic disorder of their own choosing. These assessments will be equally weighted at 50% each.
when you have successfully completed this module you will:
to demonstrate that you have achieved the learning outcome you will:
|1.||Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the pathophysiology of a range of human physiological systems||Describe the pathology of a range of clinical disorders and explain the contributory factors to the development of these disorders|
|2.||Demonstrate understanding of the functional implications of a range of chronic disorders||Explain how the disorder may limit functional capacity and discuss the physiological reasons for the limitation|
|3.||Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the clinical management of range of chronic disorders||Outline the approaches to the clinical management of a range of chronic disorders and summarise the impact of these management strategies on the disorders|
|4.||Demonstrate understanding of the effects of exercise on a range of chronic disorders||Explain how physical activity may impact on the pathophysiology of a range of chronic disorders and illustrate how this will lead to an improvement in functional capacity|
|5.||Demonstrate independence in your approach to study.||
