Unit 2 Communication Portfolio Guidance
This unit gives you the opportunity to monitor the body systems of two individuals, at different
life stages taking into account the health and safety issues related to your measuring and ethical
issues in working with individuals.
You will gain an understanding of why measurements may fall outside the expected range and
the implications of this and of how body systems work together to function effectively.
You will investigate the diagnostic tests that health professionals carry out in health care settings
when routine monitoring reveals abnormal readings and you will learn what impact a diagnosis
has on a client’s lifestyle.
You will produce a written report of your investigations.
