Health Assessment of Acute Illness & Deterioration

NUR09115 (20 Credits @ Level 9)

Synopsis of Module

The module will teach you how to assess acute physical illness and deterioration through studying theoretical, research-based content on WebCT and applying to practical skills stations and to scenarios utilising medium fidelity simulators and actor patients within the clinical skills laboratory.

Following each scenario, there will be the opportunity to “debrief” and critically reflect on your actions.The theoretical content and skills stations are all developed to emphasise a systematic approach to person-centred care, patient assessment and clinical decision making.
