This module builds upon existing scientific and clinical knowledge, carrying on the progression to application of knowledge to the clinical environment. Pharmacological aspects of care and management will be incorporated. Students will be encouraged to scrutinize their own practice and discuss rationales for patient management by applying their knowledge of pharmacology and pathophysiology via group presentations.
This module is designed to meet the specific needs of students on the Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE) in Paramedic Science for Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). The module assumes no prior knowledge of the subject material and provides an overview of the structure and function of each organ system. The module enhances material delivered in lead lectures and makes use of the pre-existing Visual Bioscience software developed by the College.
This module further develops paramedic skills with particular emphasis on care of medical and trauma emergencies.
This module aims to give an overview of specialist aspects of mental health nursing practice, especially when care can be considered complex and situations rapidly change.
