About the Course
This unit aims to develop students’ further understanding of the scope of advanced nursing practice. It will build on students’ knowledge and understanding of critical events across the lifespan and their effects on individuals and families. The content will include further understanding of acute, chronic, psychosocial, mental, rehabilitation, aged and community nursing care, principles and management of clients with consideration to aetiological, environmental, demographic and lifestyle factors, nutritional, microbiological involvement and psychosocial factors. Pharmacological knowledge and pathophysiological manifestations and, where relevant, factors influencing morbidity and mortality are examined. Documentation forms including current documenting systems will be discussed. In addition, clinical skills are reinforced using simulated case scenarios.
