HKPolyUx conducts an online course on Human Anatomy.The course explores the structure of the human body through a real life case scenario of stroke from six healthcare professional perspectives.
About The Course:
The course focuses on basic concepts of anatomy and learn to ‘dissect' the human body with a logical approach through a typical clinical. During the course you will learn: Effects of stroke on the human bod ;Anatomy of relevant body systems at gross and histological levels; Services provided by allied health professionals for stroke patients; Relevant knowledge of anatomy for application of clinical procedures.
Introduction of the stroke case scenario with a micro movie in Hong Kong style and six role-play videos demonstrating the application of anatomy knowledge being used by the six allied health disciplines.
Body systems and important organs; Locate the body regions and cavities; Describe the systems involved in each region; Identify the major organs (tissues and cells) in each system.
Anatomical orientation and skeletal system; Define the anatomical position and planes; Classify different types of bones; Describe the bone structure; Locate the major bones of the skeleton
The muscular system; Classify different types of muscles tissues; Indicate the characteristics and location of different types of muscles tissues; Illustrate the actions of muscles
The nervous system and special senses; Explain the differences between the central and peripheral nervous system; Describe the structure of neurons; Describe the major component of the brain
Describe the major structure of the spinal cord; Recognize the special sensory organs and their functions
Cardiovascular and pulmonary system; Recognize the structure of the heart and different types of blood vessels; Trace the major blood flow through the heart; Recognize the major structure of the lung and passageways; Trace the airflow through the pulmonary system
