Overview: key features and characteristics of the periods studied. Candidates should have some understanding of how the following key features in the history of medicine are linked with important changes in society which were instrumental in enabling developments in medicine. Key features in medical development The establishment of a separate medical profession using a written body of knowledge.

The firm establishment of theories of the natural cause of illness: the theory of the four humours. Scientific medical investigation leading to: exact anatomical knowledge; the theory of the circulation of the blood; the germ theory of disease. The development of technically complex drugs and surgical methods. Greatly increased involvement of the state with health.

Changes in society The emergence of organised and literate societies in ancient times. The Greek idea that logical and rational knowledge of nature was possible. The development of exact and experimental science from the 17th century onwards. The development of technological research and knowledge in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The gaining of political rights by all classes of people in many countries throughout the world in the 20th century. Key Concepts Change Candidates should have some understanding of: ? the varying pace of change including some periods of stagnation; ? the ways in which change may not lead to progress for all people; ? the ways in which some aspects of change lead to progress whilst others do not; how change may lead to apparent progress in the short term but not in the long term. Continuity Candidates should show an appreciation that: ? old ideas and technologies continue to be used in some areas long after they have been superseded in others;

? old and new ideas and techniques often continue side by side in the same place. Causation and consequence Candidates should be able to show some understanding of the causes and consequences of change, including: the role played by factors which have encouraged or inhibited change at different limes, e. g. superstition, religion, science, warfare, industry, technology, chance; the role of organised groups in causing or preventing change, e. g. governments; professional opposition to antisepsis; political and social groups pressing for a National Health Service; the links between factors which brought about particular developments at particular limes, e. g. the germ theory of disease, the development of penicillin;

Note: technical knowledge Candidates will not normally be required to explain technological or scientific principles. They will be given credit for such explanation only where it is relevant to the historical problem posed in the question. The teaching of this course will take into account the requirements of the Certificate of Achievement where appropriate.

There is also scope to integrate the NEAB’s Unit award scheme into the department at a later date: NEAB Unit Award Scheme: Medicine through Time Unit 1: History of Medicine: Medicine in Ancient Times NEAB Unit Award Scheme code no: 22800 Unit 2: History of Medicine: The Middle Ages to circa 1700 NEAB Unit Award Scheme code no 22801 Unit 3: History of Medicine: from 1800 to the present day NEAB Unit Award Scheme code no; 22802 Unit 4: History of Medicine: Surgery NEAB Unit Award Scheme code no 22803 Unit 5: History of Medicine: Disease NEAB Unit Award Scheme code no 22804 Unit 6: History of Medicine: Public Health NEAB Unit Award Scheme code no 22805 Teaching Guide.

Total Time Allotted: 28 weeks (Two Terms) These tasks act as a CORE of the learning activities. They SHOULD be supplemented with use of Video, CD ROM and other resources regularly and group/ paired activities can be utilised effectively in place of a number of these learning activities. Provide each student with a Glossary booklet. They should add to this as and when appropriate. (At LEAST once per unit). Provide each student with a Timeline of the full era with major events already printed on it. They should add medical developments to the timeline as and when they learn them. *This can be done as part of the revision process Unit 1: Prehistoric Medicine.

Differentiation within Unit 1: Prehistoric Medicine is primarily through outcome. Homework set during lesson 3 will be differentiated for Gifted and Talented, Core, Foundation and Certificate of Achievement students. Time allowed: One Week. Learning outcomes: In successfully completing this unit students will have demonstrated the ability to Use a variety of sources to acquire knowledge of disease and treatment methods in prehistoric times.

Completed a chart explaining prehistoric beliefs about the cause of disease. Teaching method Lesson One Use chapter one of the class textbook, ‘Medicine through Time’, Rees and Shuter, to develop an understanding of what the term ‘prehistoric’ means.

Ask students how people in prehistoric times would have passed on information about effective cures for disease: they could not write, therefore it had to be word of mouth. No recording system, thus practise remains primitive. Students should answer the following questions to provide them with a background understanding: What does ‘Prehistoric’ mean?

How do we know what types of disease existed during Prehistoric times? What type of evidence can we use to identify things that happened in prehistoric times? Lesson Two Inform the students that many skulls have been uncovered dating back to prehistoric times. Many of these skulls have holes drilled into them. Ask why?

Make a note of the suggestions made by students, they could provide an insight later into the reasons for historical variations relating to Trephining. Would the drilling of holes in the head be fatal? Ask for suggestions and remind students that there were no hospitals, anaesthetics or sterile conditions around in prehistoric times. Nor were there specialist tools to perform surgery with. Provide Evidence: Bone grows. It can be clearly seen on many of the skulls recovered that there has been substantial growth around the holes. This means that people lived for quite some time after Trephining. What does this tell us about people in Prehistoric times?

Demonstrate roughly what would have happened during Trephining. Students complete tasks, Unit 1. 3. Lesson Three Read through the information relating to Aboriginal beliefs. Explain that the Aboriginal lifestyle is as close to that in prehistoric times as we can get. Discuss the beliefs of aborigine’s relating to a variety of illnesses. Answer Question 4 from Unit 1. 4.

Week 1, Lessons 2;3 Answer the questions underneath these two sources: A: Parts of the Islamic holy book, the ‘Hadith’ The Holy Prophet (peace be on him) said: Cleanliness is half of Faith. Keep your houses and yards tidy. God does not like dirt and cleanses the mouth not trim his nails and untidiness. Brushing the teeth and pleases God. He who does his moustache is not one of us. He who goes to sleep while his hands smell of food has only himself to blame if harm comes to him.

Every Muslim must have a bath once a week, when he must wash his head and the whole of his body. Do not put up a sick man and a healthy one together. If you hear of the plague keep away from it. If the plague breaks out in the area where you are, do not leave. B: from ‘The Cultural side of Islam’ by Muhammad Pickthall The Muslims set out on their search for learning in the name of God at a time when Christians were destroying all the learning of the ancients in the name Christ. The Christians had destroyed the library at Alexandra. Learning for them was only for the devil and unbelievers. The priests publicly burnt the books of Greeks and Romans. However, the educated men of Islam set to work on translation of the ancient books.

So the Muslims saved the ancient learning from destruction and passed its treasures down to modern times. The Greek contribution to medicine would have been lost without efforts of the Muslims. Questions: 1) What did the prophet say about the Plague and why was this good advice? 2) Why do you think that Arab hospitals were so clean? Quote evidence from Source A to help you answer the question. 3) Read through the two sources and the information in Unit 7. 3/ 7. 4 and find examples of how the Islamic religion helped and hindered medicine. 4) Look again at the map of the Islamic Empire.
