PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard requires learners to have the background knowledge required to assess a medical risk. It will be useful for underwriters, life claims assessors, reinsurers, medical claims assessors who need to apply knowledge of the reproductive system to assess long term risk.

The qualifying learner is capable of:
  • Explaining the anatomy and physiology of the reproductive system.
  • Explaining the main conditions and impairments related to the reproductive system.
  • Interpreting evidence related to reproductive conditions and impairments.
  • Applying knowledge of the reproductive system to assess risk. 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    There is open access to this unit standard. Learners should be competent in Communication and Mathematical Literacy at Level 3. 

    UNIT STANDARD RANGE 
    The typical scope of this unit standard is
  • The main conditions of the male reproductive system include, but are not limited to, STDs, prostate, infertility disorders, testicular disorder, erectile dysfunction, vasectomy and sex change.
  • The main conditions of the female reproductive system include, but are not limited to, STDs, infertility disorders, endometriosis, birth defects, miscarriages, difficult pregnancies, sex change.
  • Evidence includes, but is not limited to, pathology reports, blood tests, scopes, x-rays, sonar, specialist reports and reports on specific procedures.
  • Risk factors include, but are not limited to, medical, lifestyle, occupation and avocation risks. 

  • Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 
    Explain the anatomy and physiology of the reproductive system. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    The main components of the male reproductive system are identified and an indication is given of the function of each component in the system. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    The main components of the female reproductive system are identified and an indication is given of the function of each component in the system. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 
    Explain the main conditions and impairments related to the reproductive system. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    The main conditions of the male reproductive system are identified and an indication is given of the symptoms, treatment, prognosis and impairment related to each. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    The main conditions of the female reproductive system are identified and an indication is given of the symptoms, treatment, prognosis and impairment related to each. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 3 
    Interpret evidence related to reproductive system conditions and impairments. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    Objective medical evidence of reproductive system related impairments is identified and an indication is given of when and why each type of evidence is required to support an assessment decision. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    Medical evidence is interpreted in order to make an assessment decision and indication is given of when it is necessary to refer evidence to the next level of authority. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 3 
    The consequences of wrong or inappropriate decisions in assessing long term risk are explained from the point of view of the underwriter, claims assessor, insurer and the client. 

    SPECIFIC OUTCOME 4 
    Apply knowledge of the reproductive system to assess risk. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERIA
     

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 
    The risk factors in a male reproductive system case study are analysed to determine the risk and a reproductive system related assessment decision is substantiated using appropriate evidence. 

    ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 
    The risk factors in a female reproductive system case study are analysed to determine the risk and a reproductive system related assessment decision is substantiated using appropriate evidence.

    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Quality Assuring Bodies have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Quality Assuring Body should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
