In this unit, students will build on, consolidate and then extend their knowledge, from previous units HMO203 and HMO303, in the physical and biomedical sciences underpinning optometric practice. Students will engage in further problem-based learning through cases drawn from a range of straightforward and more complex conditions. Cases will specifically span the refractive, binocular, developmental, age-related and systemic disorders that affect the eye. Lectures, practical and tutorials will be offered in support of the problem-based sessions. The physical and biomedical sciences covered will be mainly anatomy and physiology, neurology and pharmacology, pathophysiology, therapeutics, advanced visual optics and ophthalmic dispensing. Optometric diagnosis and management approaches will continue to be developed. Students will continue to exercise academic literacy and research skills through a series of lectures and an assignment. Optical dispensing and practice management understanding will be further extended through a series of workshops. Student learning will be consolidated through team-based learning.
Team-based learning: 10 x individual readiness assurance tests 28%, and team readiness assurance tests 12%; critical review (3000 words) 30%; examination (90 minutes) 20%; practical assessment task (20 minutes) 10%
