Subject Title
Principles of Health Conditions and Management II

Subject Description
Building upon the foundations in Principles of Health Conditions and Management I, this course extends student learning by taking a holistic look at the health care unit combining an understanding of human disease, common pharmaceutical interventions, and appropriate documentation. In this course, diseases of the peripheral and central nervous systems, the endocrine system, and renal system will be covered. Musculoskeletal disorders will also be discussed in detail. Diseases of the optic and auditory systems will be explored, as will an overview of dermatological disorders. By the end of these two courses, students will have a foundational understanding of health conditions, pharmacology, and the skills to both interpret medical charts and to engage in effective clinical documentation.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

  1. Describe the causes, symptoms, and treatments of systemic disease to inform therapeutic recreation practice.
  2. Predict the pharmaceutical interventions used to treat disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems to inform therapeutic recreation practice.
  3. Differentiate between the major classes of pharmacological agents used to treat diseases of the endocrine, urinary, optic, auditory, integumentary, and musculoskeletal systems to guide therapeutic recreation practice.
  4. Interpret client medical charts to inform therapeutic recreation decision-making.
  5. Compose documentation for therapeutic recreation practice using a variety of techniques.
