This module is for all health care practitioners who wish to increase their knowledge, understanding and skill in assessing, recognising and providing immediate care for adults in need of urgent or emergency care.
The focus of this module is on the rapid systematic assessment and recognition of acute illness and health needs along with sound clinical evaluation and intervention. Students will examine the current evidence base in conjunction with national and international practice guidelines to underpin clinical decision making. The module covers:
1. Primary assessment and clinical decision making in urgent and emergency care
2. Urgent and emergency care of the adult with acute illness
3. Urgent and emergency care for the adult with mental health needs or illness.
The module is supported by a number of lecturers and service users who provide a wealth of expertise for students to tap into. The module operates with a mix of creative activities to support learning as well as ‘hands-on’ practice skills workshops.
This module will meet the needs of practitioners who are required to assess and respond to adults with urgent or emergent health needs, for example those working in emergency care settings, assessment or observation units, urgent care centres or primary care centres.
