2008 - 2009
SUBMISSION OF ASSIGNMENTS - YEAR 1
NB: For Anatomy & Physiology all colouring plates are in the Anatomy Colouring Book. The latest edition should be referred to. Completion of the Anatomy/Physiology colouring plates is not assessed but in conjunction with Tortora forms part of the reading that should be done between teaching weekends. Required reading listed should be done prior to attendance at class. This means that any questions that students may have can be raised in class without delaying the scheduled sessions. Students who do not pre-read this material are reminded that class will progress at the normal pace and it is their responsibility to catch up without impeding the progress of the class. If anyone is working from a different edition of Tortora, they must check that the chapters given out as required reading match up with the copy that they have. There are short class tests at the start of each session for Anatomy & Physiology. You will be tested on what was covered at the previous session. These tests are designed to encourage students to keep on top of the workload throughout the year rather than leave it all until the big exams. Class tests do contribute to the overall module mark awarded. Weeks 8, 9 & 10 have a heavy workload and students are therefore encouraged to prepare in advance for some of the assignments and to stay on top of their required reading. Students are advised to start writing up their case histories early on in the year since this will be of great benefit when the time comes to submit them. At the final exam weekend, students are to submit a folder of their work containing all the assignments that have been submitted throughout the year as well as a photocopy of your clinical logsheet showing the number of hours completed to date. The assignments should be placed in a ring binder folder & arranged by subject and by date within each subject. The purpose of this is so that the External Examiners can have a look at students work when they meet to verify everyone’s marks. Reading and Assignments to be submitted for Week 1 1.

You must email an example of 1 complete set of case histories to Elaine by no later than 1st September so that she can let you know in plenty of time whether you need to make any changes to them before completing them all and having them marked for ITEC. All fully completed case histories must be posted to the School to arrive no later than Friday 5th September. All case histories must be typed and presented in a ring binder folder with each case history being separated from the next by a divider. Please do not use poly pockets. The folder must contain a cover sheet that has the student’s name on it along with the title ‘ITEC Therapeutic Massage Case Histories’ and the date of the exam. Do not use the SSHM assignment cover sheet or your SSHM matriculation number as these things bear no relevance to ITEC. Should any student fail to follow the guidelines both provided here and those given out by the course tutor they risk being withdrawn from the exam. In the event that a student is withdrawn from the exam they will not have completed first year and the student will not be eligible for progression into second year. The 2nd year Pathophysiology module builds upon knowledge attained during the 1st year modules in Anatomy and Physiology. It is therefore vital that students have a sound grasp of these subjects in order to engage with the subject of Pathophysiology on an appropriate level. Revision of these topics over the summer is strongly advised.
