Pathophysiology and Pharmacology

WCB504
Online Education Courses
45

The purpose of this course is to provide basic factual information about the development and progress of disease, especially in humans, and to provide a basic understanding of the concepts of pharmacology as they relate to those diseases. The course consists of three interrelated components: the basic processes that occur in diseases, specific systemic diseases, and related information on pharmacology.

Coding Basics is a self-paced program which will cover the foundational concepts in the coding and billing profession. Coding professionals abstract clinical data from health records and assign appropriate medical codes. These codes are used for reimbursement, planning, and research. Comprehensive training in inpatient and outpatient coding is provided, along with the necessary background courses in health record content, medical terminology, and disease process. 

COURSE OUTCOMES:

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Classify the basic physiologic processes that occur in disease.
  • Use the vocabulary of pathology and interpret the descriptions of disease that are written by pathologists.
  • Understand the fundamental principles of pathophysiology in specific systemic diseases.
  • Recognize common pharmacologic applications for specific disease treatment.
