Description

We will continue to offer a full range of modules for the upcoming academic year 2020/2021, however due to Covid-19 social distancing measures on campus attendance will be limited. There is minimal scheduled fact-to-face time and when practical skills teaching is a necessity this will continue with appropriate safety measures in place. The mode of delivery for each module can be viewed by accessing the “attendance dates” for each module. There is a possibility that the government advice on social distancing may change in the future and could restrict access to the campus; plans have been put into place and we expect to be able to continue to deliver all modules of the programme in such an eventuality.

 

This module aims to further develop your understanding of the knowledge base, skills and factors that all contribute towards effective clinical decision making.

The module is designed to allow students to explore the theories that underpin effective decision making in the clinical setting. A patient centred approach will be used to explore the knowledge base and factors that can influence decision making in paramedic practice.

 

Who is this module for?

Students should be registered paramedics with experience of working in the emergency, out of hospital care setting.
