Minor Illness Management - 30 Credit points

Module Aim

This module is aimed at qualified nurses working within general practice who intend to work alongside their medical counterparts or in nurse-led situations assessing treating and discharging patients with a range of minor illnesses within agreed protocols. Students will develop an understanding of their expanding role in the context of minor illness management as well as the professional and legal aspects of their developing practice

Target Group

This module is open to qualified nurses working within primary care. Consideration to other places of work may be considered but this would need to be discussed with the module lead before applying. All applicants will be profiled by the module leader.
This module can be taken as an optional module for the BSc (Hons) General Practice Nursing programme. It can also be taken as a stand-alone module. 
Prior to undertaking this module, students will have to identify a potential mentor which will have to be approved by the module leader.
