There are loads of resources for this unit. YouTube has a range of clips on infections and ways to prevent infection. Attached are a few I have found useful. Highfield have a Level 2 booklet which is a good starting point especially for technical terms. A book I have just discovered is Infection control in clinical practice by Jennie Wilson, Pub Balliere Tindall Elsevier (ISBN 13: 978 0 70 20 2761 1). It provides excellent background reading for teacher and would be accessible to higher ability learners.
My students loved this unit and they really flourished on the independent learning/reserach front. The scribble pads allowed them make notes and then use the notes in a structured way to write reports. A great unit - to be recommended!
This presentation explores the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system. Using numbers to guide both teacher and student throughout the presentation, these then correspond with an activity sheet also included in this resource.
The presentation covers:
* Functions of the nervous system (with reference to how we communicate)
*Divisions - central nervous system and peripheral nervous system
* Lobes test - in the activity presentation, you will find some ideas on how to deliver/demonstrate to students what each lobe does, in an activity based method
* The meninges
* Head injuries
* Neurone and neurotransmitters (very brief outline)
This presentation outlines and describes some of the medical technologies used in health and social care. This could be useful for students to become familiar with some technologies that they may be introduced to when working in health and social care placements.
* Operative and invasive
The presentation includes images/text and hyperlinks to videos online that could be included to enhance the learner environment.
This presentation is about ethics and technology use. With the sound explanations of what ethics is about throughout, the reference made to technology use could be amended easily in the presentation.
* Decision making (activities for students to think about their decisions / morals)
* Benefits and implications of using technology in health and social care
* Ethical principles, implications and examples
* Life support, quality of life, assisted suicide (are among examples reflected on throughout).

This power point presentation outlines and explains the concept of homeostasis. Examples of feedback loops are explained - positive and negative. The internal environment of the human body is explored, as well as the impact of external factors including exercise. Breathing rate, heart rate, temperature and blood glucose homeostatic mechanisms are explored. References made to energy metabolism are also included. This resource could be easily adapted to suit the learning level. Some interactivity is included, along with links to external video sites.
