Course Syllabus

General information of Human Anatomy – HKPolyUx ANA101x

This self-paced introductory course has no prerequisite. This course is divided into three modules
which contains subsections that usually require no more than 30 minutes per session on average. In
addition to the assessments, warm up games and polling questions are used to stimulate your
learning. The learning objectives of the course are:

 To understand effects of stroke on the human body

 To appreciate the anatomy of relevant body systems at gross and histological levels
 To discover or acknowledge services provided by healthcare professionals for stroke patients
 To gain relevant knowledge of anatomy for application of clinical procedures

Apart from our course materials, a list of recommended open-access e-book and articles are
available under “Course Handout - Recourses” as supplementary materials.

Goals and outcomes

The course is designed for anyone who is interested in knowing more about our human body,
particularly in relation to stroke. Potential or existing healthcare professionals could take this course
to equip or refresh their essential anatomy knowledge.

After completing the course, learners will understand how stroke affects the human body and the
bodily functions, as well as the rehabilitation procedures that a stroke survivor may need to go
through on the journey of recovery. Whether you are a healthcare provider or a supporter who is
caring for a stroke sufferer, this course will be beneficial. Learners will be more aware of stroke-like
symptoms and the importance of timely and effective treatments to stroke patients, and thus, be
able to safeguard their patients or family and friends around them.
