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 effectively recognise, manage and refer patients with a range of cardiovascular diseases from the out of hospital setting to an appropriate care pathway.

The module is designed to allow students to explore a range of topics relating to cardiovascular diseases encountered in the emergency, out of hospital care setting.

It covers the presentation, pathophysiology, aetiology, epidemiology and initial management of patients presenting with these diseases. It is designed to offer the opportunity to explore the theory which underpins clinical paramedic management.

 

Who is this module for?

Registered paramedics with experience of working in the emergency, out of hospital care setting.
