Clinical studies subject



This subject is designed to enable students to build on fundamental principles underpinning critical care nursing through application of theoretical knowledge and case-based learning, that may then be consolidated through experiential learning in clinical practice. Students have the opportunity to explore complex case-based management of clinically challenging situations and at the same time, determine the depth at which they wish to learn inside the subject. Students have access to a varied selection of resources that enable a comprehensive learning opportunity according to skill level and learning needs. A combination of written and viva subject assessment varies the assessment type to enhance both written and professional communication skills. Subject learning enables application of technical and creative knowledge using the best available evidence and high-level clinical judgement. The philosophy of person-centred care is embedded to enable excellence in holistic critical care nursing practice.
