Human Anatomy

Inservice Summary

A primary duty of healthcare workers is to monitor and assess the basic wellness of patients. They need to understand how the human body would normally function in order to detect changes that may indicate a serious alteration in health. Patients may have a chronic medical problem, such as diabetes, heart disease, or hypertension. Healthcare workers are expected to understand these disease processes, to understand how they affect health, and to know when these medical conditions have worsened. That level of knowledge requires a basic understanding of human anatomy.
