Unit Learning Experiences The approach to learning in this unit is blended between structured, semi-structured and self-directed learning tasks. Each week focusses on a condition or related group of conditions where students are provided with a set of pre-reading materials. The lecture provides an in depth background of pathophysiology, clinical assessment and clinical management of the conditions. The workshop then requires students to demonstrate a set of skills around the assessment and management of those particular conditions.
