Nursing Practice 6: Management Of Deteriorating Patient (NURBN3030)

This unit continues to develop the ability of the student to conduct a comprehensive and systematic person-centred assessment with a particular focus on recognising and responding to clinical deterioration in line with the current Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care Standards.

Using a systematic and therapeutic approach to advanced patient assessment students will apply their skills and knowledge in an extended period of clinical placement with a focus on increased clinical acuity with an emphasis on managing acute conditions, acute exacerbations in chronic conditions, deteriorating patients and life-limiting illnesses, and palliation This course contains 160 hours of clinical placement
