Healthcare Science (Respiratory and Sleep Physiology) BSc (Hons)
University of Wolverhampton
Key Course Facts
This course combines and integrates both academic and work-based training in order to provide participants with the practical skills and underpinning knowledge to fulfil the role as a Healthcare Science Practitioner in Respiratory and Sleep Physiology. Knowledge of the normal structure and function of the human body will be developed so that the student can appreciate the clinical abnormalities that occur as a result of disease. Students will consider the diagnostic tests used within the profession and be able to understand how test results are used to plan subsequent treatment. The course will provide the student with a wider appreciation of a number of specialisms in physiological sciences through broad experiential components in cardiovascular, respiratory and sleep sciences in order to develop a more holistic view of the areas contributing to high-quality care. Students will develop competency in a range of techniques outlined in the Healthcare Science Practitioner Training Manual for Respiratory and Sleep Physiology through integrated work-based placements in local hospitals. The encouragement of good professional practice will be paramount at all stages of work-based training and students will be encouraged to develop research skills which can be used to improve practice in their chosen specialism. The programme aims to include patient participation in its design, delivery and assessment of students in order to produce a Healthcare Science Practitioner that is focused on patient-centred care. Successful completion of the course will enable graduates to gain employment within a hospital to undertake physiological measurements in respiratory and sleep physiology with patients as part of their patient care pathway.
