Module overview

This module builds upon the preceding 'Foundations of Health Sciences' module. Students will advance their understanding in key aspects of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular physiology and anatomy in addition to being introduced to fundamental and applied aspects of pharmacology. Relevant psychosocial and mental health topics that can influence health behaviours will also be addressed.

A key feature of the module is an investigation of pain mechanisms and pain theory where the complexities and multifactorial nature of painful experiences will be addressed.
