The role of the healthcare scientist sits at the forefront of the medical profession, making a vital difference to the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions. This course is for aspiring cardiac physiologists looking to gain an expert understanding of the heart and how it functions to provide treatment to patients with known or suspected heart disease.
This module introduces you to the scientific basis of healthcare science and aims to provide you with a solid foundation upon which to build the knowledge and skills required to work as a Healthcare Science Practitioner.
This module aims to provide you with a basic knowledge and understanding of the scientific basis related to healthcare science and with a solid foundation upon which to build the knowledge and skills required to work as a Healthcare Science Practitioner.
This module is designed to provide you with an in-depth knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology related to cardiology, vascular, respiratory and sleep sciences.
This module provides you with the basic theory and practice of cardiac, vascular, respiratory and sleep sciences.
This module provides you with the insight into the organisation and roles of the health and social services in providing patient-centred care, understand what roles and responsibilities of a Healthcare Science Practitioner. In addition, it aims to help you develop your communication, study and teamworking skills.
This module aims to provide you with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of disease processes and common diseases associated with the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. It will explore the epidemiology, public health and psychosocial aspects of each disease.
This module will provide you with a firm grounding in interpretation of the abnormal ECG and its causative pathologies. Recording of the blood pressure through non-invasive measurement at rest and on the ambulant patient is discussed. The module also provides a detailed background for ambulatory monitoring of the ECG.
This module aims to provide you with knowledge and understanding of principles and properties of measurement techniques used in carrying out physiological measurements.
This module aims to provide you with knowledge and understanding of the importance of research, development and innovation in clinical practice. In addition, it provides the underpinning knowledge required to undertake a research project. A final aim is to prepare you for a career as a Healthcare Science Practitioner.
This module aims to provide you with the knowledge and understanding of a pacing and cardiac catherisation in adults and children. In addition, you will gain a deep appreciation physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology related to each investigative procedure or therapeutic intervention.
This module aims to provide you with the knowledge and understanding of provocative electrocardiography. In addition, you will gain a deep appreciation of physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology related to this investigative procedure. This module will build on earlier work to develop the themes of public health and epidemiology of cardiovascular disease, risk factors, risk assessment and primary prevention including behavioural change management.
This module will build on the skills you have acquired when undertaking previous research modules and from the knowledge gained throughout the programme. Further development of analysis, critical thinking and scientific literary style will be promoted. You will be enabled to pursue areas of individual interest in the subject area appropriate to their target award and will have the opportunity of gaining increased theoretical and practical knowledge in a chosen specialist field. Individual research experience will be gained in an area that may provide future employment opportunities. Personal responsibility for own learning through self-directed study and supervised preparation will be fostered. It is an integral part of the degree programme, furthering the development of skills in critical analysis and reflection.
This module provides you with the consolidate knowledge and technical skills gained earlier in the programme. In addition, the module provides you with an opportunity to undertake a full range of practice required to work effectively as a Healthcare Science Practitioner.
