Areas of Expertise
- Sub-clinical cardiovascular dysfunction
This module provides an opportunity to explore professional practice within a healthcare science discipline and to gain the professional skills and competences required for practice at level 5.
This is a module that builds upon SHC150 Professional Practice 1 and SHC230 Professional Practice 2 from years 1 and 2 to provide the student with an in depth understanding of professional practice as it applies to healthcare science.
The aim of the module is to broaden the student experience of clinical practice in their specialism. This experience will ensure that on graduation, the student can undertake the breadth of practice expected of a newly qualified healthcare science practitioner.
The module will prepare students for their professional role as a healthcare science practitioner in Cardiology. Students will gain an understanding of their role in the patient pathway and the importance of evidence-based practice that considers patient-centred care.
This module will give practitioners the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding which underpins the use of clinical assessment in the context of differential diagnosis. Practitioners will be expected to apply knowledge and basic skills of clinical assessment to their individual scope of practice within a cardiology, respiratory physiology or sleep-disordered breathing clinic. The opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the role of other diagnostic modalities such as radiology and pathology are integral to the module.
This module is used to underpin the applied knowledge required to understand the clinical presentation and management of specific long term and chronic conditions.
