Teaching and learning disclaimer
Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.
The teaching and assessment methods listed show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
The module will be delivered over 6 weeks with attendance required one day per week (weeks 1-4) in combination with asynchronous online, directed learning.
Topics covered include;
- recognising and escalating the deteriorating patient
- ABCDE assessment
- patient safety
- critical patient pathways e.g. management of sepsis and shock.
A 1 hour unseen examination assessing the student’s knowledge of acute care nursing, and a personal portfolio containing;
- An analysis of personal learning needs.
- Four written personal reflections on skills development with reference to an appropriate evidence base (minimum word count 400 words each).
- Evidence of contribution to and reflection on online learning.
- Certification of completion of online mandatory learning.
