24 RLOs available for use
Title Description Subject(s) Detail
Bioavailability Introduction to the concept of the bioavailability of drugs. Pharmacology View further information on this RLO.
Birth Prevalence This RLO explores the concept of birth prevalence, a special type of prevalence defined as "the percentage of a given population who have a particular disease in a given population at a given point in time or over a particular time period." Statistics View further information on this RLO.
Cross-tabular data This RLO examines how survey or experimental data can be converted to cross tabular data, and the steps involved in this process. It also examines how to present it in a way that is useful for recognising patterns and representing graphically. Research, Research methods, Statistics View further information on this RLO.
Doctor/Patient Relations Understanding various facets of the doctor-patient relationship and factors that facilitate and impede the success of that relationship. The RLO uses video clips to illustrate four styles of doctor-patient scenarios. Clinical skills, Practice learning and clinical skills View further information on this RLO.
Drug-receptor interaction Introduction to the interaction of cell receptors with drugs Pharmacology View further information on this RLO.
Exploring the synapse Describe the events during the transmission of an impulse across a synapse Biological processes, Pharmacology View further information on this RLO.
Gateways to health A collection of 13 videos (Real Video format) with people talking about their chronic health problems: Healthcare (general), Public health View further information on this RLO.
Half-life of drugs To understand the half-life of drugs and its relationship with volume of distribution and clearance. Pharmacology View further information on this RLO.
Hand Hygiene This learning object demonstrates, through streaming video clips, practical hand hygiene techniques for infection control in healthcare settings. There are also interactive self-assessment quizzes Practice learning and clinical skills View further information on this RLO.
Incidence An explanation of incidence as the measurement of disease frequency Research, Statistics View further information on this RLO.
International classification of function International Classification of Function (ICF) is akin to the International Classification of Disease (ICD) used to classify diseases and mortality, but concentrates on health and combines psychosocial as well as biological theory. The two are interrelated and complimentary. Sociology View further information on this RLO.
Levels of Measurement To understand the different levels of measurement and the arithmetic operations that can be performed on them EBP, Research methods, Statistics View further information on this RLO.
Levels of Measurement: what you can and can't do arithmetically An explanation of the statistical operations that can be performed on the different levels of measurement. EBP, Statistics View further information on this RLO.
Lock and Key Hypothesis Introducing the "lock and key" analogy of drug-receptor interaction, whereby only drugs of a certain molecular shape will 'fit' with a cell membrane receptor. Pharmacology View further information on this RLO.
Parsons' Sick Role The concept, sources, criticisms and strengths of the sick role as developed by Talcott Parsons. Sociology View further information on this RLO.
Participant and non-participant observation - making the right choice This RLO looks at Participant and non-participant observation and helps the learner to make the right choice. Research, Research methods View further information on this RLO.
Power and sample size An introduction to type I and type II errors with an interactive simulation to show the dynamic effects of variables on the power of the study Statistics View further information on this RLO.
Pressure Introducing basic concepts of physical pressure, with particular reference to the role of pressure in healthcare situations. Science basics View further information on this RLO.
Prevalence An explanation of prevalence as the measurement of a situation at one time Statistics View further information on this RLO.
Probability associated with inferential statistics An introduction to probability, and the probability of sample errors affecting research results. EBP, Statistics View further information on this RLO.
Relationship between incidence and prevalence An explanation of the relationship between incidence and prevalence with an interactive example Statistics View further information on this RLO.
Social class Understanding the concept of social class, how it is modelled and some of the healthcare problems attached Healthcare (general), Healthy Living, Public health, Social Work, Sociology View further information on this RLO.
The Black Report and Inequalities in Health This RLO examines the findings and implications of the Black Repor. This was a 1980 document published by the the Department of Health and Social Security in the United Kingdom, which was the report of the expert committee into health inequality chaired by Sir Douglas Black. It was demonstrated that although overall health had improved since the introduction of the welfare state, there were widespread health inequalities. Healthcare (general), Healthy Living, Social Work, Sociology View further information on this RLO.
Understanding First Pass Metabolism Description of first pass metabolism of orally-administered drugs in the liver and gastrointestinal tract Pharmacology View further information on this RLO.
