The aim of this course is to provide students with the opportunity to study Pharmacology at level 3 and its associated principles and practices.
The course is intended for those interested in pharmacology in either a domestic or professional environment. This course is indicated for those who work in the health care sector and would like to develop their knowledge and understanding of the subject. This course is also indicated for those who do not work in the medical industry who would like to further their knowledge and understanding in order to progress to higher levels of study or transfer their knowledge to practical based roles (according to organisational or specific criteria and requirements).
Students will study the major aspects of pharmacology, looking at the origins of pharmacology, how a drug is developed, how it works and targets the body. In the later units this course will look at the major structures of the body such as the heart, nervous system and endocrine system. Each unit will comprise of 2 sections; the first exploring the anatomy of the structure so that specific pharmacokinetics and drug characteristics are understood; and the second focusing on the common conditions, treatments and drug class. This will enable students to fully understand the principles of pharmacology and the how and why of drug action on different body systems.
Included within the course will be a range of Independent Study Activities and case studies designed to encourage students to develop their knowledge and cement their understanding of the subject.
