Description

This module will enable healthcare practitioners such as nurses, paramedics and physiotherapists to develop their knowledge and skills in clinical reasoning and physical examination techniques. Healthcare practitioners are provided with the opportunity to equip themselves to deliver a high standard of care in health assessment techniques, critically explore differential diagnosis and develop management plans that are evidence based and in partnership with their client group.

The emphasis of the module is on integrating subjective and objective data into the clinical reasoning process and on synthesis of evidential practice in the context of undifferentiated urgent care.

The educational delivery and ethos of this module emphasises and builds on autonomous self-directed learning for independent practice.

Evidence will need to be provided by employers confirming that applicants are clinically facing and will be given a minimum of 50 hours supervised practice.
