The module introduces 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.
The 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 aims to introduce the physical and mathematical principles that underpin the concepts of instrumentation used in the Neurosensory Sciences and measurements.
The module provides the basic theory and practice of neurosensory sciences.
The module provides an insight into the organisation and roles of the health and social services in providing patient-centred care. You will understand the roles and responsibilities of a Healthcare Science Practitioner and, in addition, you will develop your communication, study and teamworking skills.
This module aims provide a solid foundation in neurophysiological recording systems, theory and practice of electroencephalography EEG and visual evoked potentials VEP.
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 provides you with an insight into common neurological conditions and their aetiology, pathological processes, relevant investigations and medical, surgical and palliative treatments. In addition, the module aims to provide the framework for understanding different types of diseases, which are rare, and which you may encounter in practice or in your studies.
This module aims to provide you with an understanding of the biological basis of EEG and pathological processes and the role of EEG in their investigations. The module will also support and develop the work-based training by providing a description of normal and abnormal EEG.
This module aims to further deepen your understanding of neurophysiological recording systems, theory and practice of electroencephalography EEG and visual evoked potentials VEP. The module will also support and develop the work-based training by providing a description of normal and abnormal EEG. The module also provides an overview of other investigative procedures used in clinical practice.
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 your 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 your own learning through self-directed study and supervised preparation will be fostered. This is an integral part of the degree programme, furthering the development of skills in critical analysis and reflection.
This module gives you the opportunity to study topics related to neuroscience and/or to gain relevant work experience to enhance your employability. You will explore and critically discuss your chosen topics or work placement and demonstrate the learning gained, as well as the development of your knowledge and skills. The learning will be located within the university or work placement.
