Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Appropriately utilise anatomical and physiological terms;
2. Recognise and describe the function of the following body systems: cells, connective tissue, bone tissue, muscle tissue, nervous, gastrointestinal, immune, cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, endocrine, integumentary, and reproductive systems;
3. Identify the cells, tissues and organs involved in the body systems presented within this unit; and
4. Integrate their knowledge of the anatomical and physiological systems presented throughout the unit to:
a) provide a thorough understanding of homeostatic control and
b) be able to demonstrate the overlapping nature and complexity of the human body.

Suggested Textbook: Wadsworth, I. Peate, S. Evans, A. Byrne, W. Deasy, M. Dowlman, P. Gillan, S. Purushothuman, D. Principles of anatomy and physiology for nursing and healthcare students in Australia. Wiley Global Education Australia, 2022. [VitalSource Bookshelf].

Engaging in theory material is expected through listening/watching the online recordings. Material may be presented as short videos or prerecorded lectures. Students will also be provided with associated theory/lecture notes
Laboratory attendance is expected. Non-attendance at laboratory classes is likely to diminish a student's ability to meet unit learning objectives, and will likely impair assessment performance. Laboratory attendance records will be kept and can be used as evidence of individual student engagement with the unit.
Required IT skills
It is expected that students will possess UC IT entry skills. Students are expected to use the Canvas site for this unit to access all of the required materials and to complete the online assessments.
Purchase of laboratory manual ($15 - $20)
Work placement, internships or practicums
Students will be required to complete a laboratory induction prior to the commencement of the on-campus laboratory classes. Students are expected to follow laboratory rules outlined in the Laboratory Induction document at all times. Failure to do so will result in exclusion from the laboratory.
