This module is for qualified Paramedics and is designed to equip students with an increased ability to safely manage patients with acute minor presentations or those with chronic health conditions in the community where appropriate.
A case-based approach will be utilised, along with simulation and online resources.
The module aims to enable students to effectively manage patients presenting with unscheduled care needs that do not warrant immediate hospital admission. They will be able to recognise key risk features and show an awareness of management strategies and referral pathways for a range of minor illnesses, injuries and chronic health conditions.
Who is this module for?
Students should be registered Paramedics.
