Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: FARMACOLOGIA GENERALE
------------------------
Aim of the unit of General Pharmacology within the course " Physiopathology applied to Nursing" is to give students the basics related to mechanism and use of drugs, with reference to pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance. Basic concepts in pharmacology prepare the nurse to the management and surveillance of pharmacological therapies and to educating patient about their medications. The General Pharmacology module is preparatory to the study of each class of drugs, starting from anti-inflammatory and antibacterial drugs. Further knowledge will be gained with the Clinical Pharmacology module.
------------------------
MM: SEMEIOTICA E FISIOPATOLOGIA
------------------------
This course of study wants to give to the student some information about physiopathology. Students will understand the events that lead to the disease, by using a practical method. There could be some deepenings about organs during the specific lessons. I will start from the definition of physiopathology and I will explain the main modalities in which the organ's damage starts. In particular this course would handle the ischaemia (artherosclerosis and vasculitis), autoimmunity and toxic problems about the pathology. I will explain the deseases that come from the presence of ischaemia, autoimmunity and toxic problems. During this course of study I will also handle the semeiotica (subject that studies the symptoms and signs of diseases). At the end of the course of study, students should be able to know the main mechanisms that lead to the disease and identify the features of it.

------------------------ MM: Infermieristica clinica 1 ------------------------ The course introduces the student to the basic concepts of major diseases and the fundamental pathogenetic processes correlate to cell changes, the organ function, homeostatic mechanisms, and clinical manifestations of disease. It is also proposed the study of the basic principles of pharmacology, in particular pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic mechanisms and introduces the student to understand and assess the benefit and risk profile of medicines. It is also proposed to develop in the student an approach oriented to the definition of the problems, the choice of prevention interventions and alterations management of respiratory function and elimination, the recognition and multidimensional assessment of pain. ------------------------ MM: Infermieristica clinica 2 ------------------------ The course introduces the student to the basic concepts of major diseases and the fundamental pathogenetic processes correlate to cell changes, the organ function, homeostatic mechanisms, and clinical manifestations of disease.
