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 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.
You must have completed Clinical Reasoning in Health Assessment OR an equivalent physical assessment module.
