Preparing for the Applied Healthcare Sciences 2 Exam

Preparing for the Applied Healthcare Sciences 2 exam
Completing this table will be excellent preparation for most questions that can be asked in the Applied Healthcare Sciences 2 exam. Remember, multiple choice questions any of the conditions like those in the weekly quizzes can also be asked so practice with all styles of question as outlined in ‘Guidance for Online Exam’ which is in the ‘Assessment’ folder on the Applied Healthcare Sciences 2 page, BrightSpace. 

 

Conditions

 

What are the risk factors for…

 

What is/Define…

List the factors that are known to increase the risk of the condition.

 

 

 

 

Hint – if there are loads, learn the main five.

Provide a definition for the condition that briefly describes it.

 

 

 

 

Hint – two sentences should usually be enough.

Show your knowledge of the pathophysiology by explaining why certain signs or symptoms occur with that condition.

 

Hint – if there are loads, learn the main five. This answer needs to be a bit longer. As a guide 100-120 words (some of you will need more, some will need less!). That’s 4-5 lines on standard Word document.

Describe what is happening inside the person’s body, the pathophysiology, because of their condition.

 

Hint – this answer needs to be a bit longer. As a guide 100-120 words (some of you will need more, some will need less!). That’s 4-5 lines on standard Word document.

 

Explain the factors you identify from the case scenario that are contributing to that particular person’s condition. BPS factors can be known risk factors that individual has but consider them within that person’s particular context. Also consider how psychological and social factors influenced the development and progression of the condition.

 

Hint – this is likely to be your longest answer and is worth spending time on. As a guide, 100-150 words.

Note: While you should practice using the case scenario information on BrightSpace, information from the cases needed for answering questions will be included in the exam.
