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.
