Module overview

The chronic conditions module provides students with a comprehensive overview of the patho- physiological framework underpinning key chronic conditions. The module builds on the knowledge and skills acquired at level 4, particularly in relation to anatomy and physiology. Students will develop skills in pathological recognition at cellular, tissue and organ level in relation to clinical signs and symptoms of specific chronic conditions. The module content aligns with the pharmacology module at level 5 allowing knowledge and skills to be integrated and providing a coherent and contemporary approach to whole system disease characteristics.
