Common health conditions are explored in relation to health promotion, health maintenance, assessment, diagnosis and management of common episodic, chronic, and complex conditions affecting health. Students develop skills in critical thinking, analysis and synthesis of data from a variety of sources, and use of evidence-based practice guidelines in diagnosing and managing health care needs.
