The module will allow students the opportunity to develop their advanced communication skills, the ability to complete a focused assessment of the patient with chronic disease and clinical decision making and management skills in relation to chronic diseases. This will be assessed in the practice area.
Students will develop the ability to critically analyse, synthesise and review care decisions in relation to chronic disease management by discussing, debating and reviewing alternative approaches to care delivery which meet the medico-legal requirements for advanced practice and have ethical and moral principles embedded throughout.
The course will be delivered face to face on City campus, utilizing the purpose-built facilities here at the University. There will be 90 hours of contact time with lectures being delivered every Friday following a 3 day induction to the University and the module. Each day will consist of three, two-hour sessions. These sessions will be delivered in a variety of ways such as lectures, seminars, problem based learning and clinical skills labs.
Students will be assessed in a variety of methods. Theoretically, students will deconstruct a complex case from practice and critically appraise the care decisions made, the interventions undertaken and identify, debate and analyse the key components of their decision making. Then, students will review the outcome of the case to critically appraise and justify the clinical actions taken in a written report. A students clinical skills are examined in an Objectively Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).
