PHYSICAL HEALTH SCIENCES - 2020/1
Module code: NUR1024
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information, the University has had to change the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes, together with certain University services and facilities for the academic year 2020/21.
These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes. This webpage sets out information relating to general University changes, and will also direct you to consider additional specific information relating to your chosen programme.
Prior to registering online, you must read this general information and all relevant additional programme specific information. By completing online registration, you acknowledge that you have read such content, and accept all such changes.
This Physical health sciences module affords the student opportunity to familiarise themselves with the knowledge, understanding and basic biological terminology used clinically thus enabling effective communication and informed practice.

|Assessment type||Unit of assessment||Weighting|
|Examination||EXAMINATION - WRITTEN SHORT ANSWER EXAM - 120 MINUTES||100|
This assessment strategy is designed to test your knowledge of the key concepts of anatomy and physiology. This assessment will be administered in form an online unseen examination lasting 2 hours. This will task your ability to recall and apply key concepts, principles, processes and mechanisms addressed in this module.
Thus the summative assessment for this module consists of:
- A two hour online unseen examination paper.
- Verbal Feedback in Tutorial
- End of Session Quizzes
- Self Assessment in Tutorials
- Online Mock Examination,Tests and Quizzes
The feedback for this assessment will be in line with the University’s guidance and regulations. The module leader will give further details of the timing and type of feedback.
- The module aims to enable the students to develop a sound understanding of body systems and the maintenance of homeostasis and to make clear links with clinical assessment and interventions.
|1||Describe the relationship between normal body functioning and homeostasis and physiological measurement used in the clinical setting.|
|2||Demonstrate an understanding of normal anatomy an physiology related to the major body system.|
|3||Apply an understanding of normal physiology to inform clinical assessment and decision making and interventions.|
|4||Demonstrate the use of scientific language and reasoning to discuss module issues and retrieve and organise data|
C - Cognitive/analytical
K - Subject knowledge
T - Transferable skills
P - Professional/Practical skills

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The Learning and Teaching Strategy is designed to:
Enable you to develop an understanding of the biological concepts, processes, principles and mechanisms of the human body systems, as underpinning patient care delivery and clinical assessments.
The Learning and Teaching methods include:
- Pre-recorded Panopto Lecture 11 hrs
- Group Seminar 22hrs
- Online Resources and Activities: Interactive Physiology On-line (Primal Pictures Software), Online Self-Directed Workbooks.
- Audiovisual Aid/Support
- Personal Tutorials
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
