Students must be currently employed in a clinical practice setting. This unit uses group work and late enrolment may affect your ability to participate actively.
In this unit students will advance their skills in recognition and response to physiological deterioration. Students will have the opportunity to further develop problem solving and clinical decision making skills and situational awareness within the acute care context. Review of an acutely ill person will be undertaken and the communication channels used to negotiate assistance when required will be examined. Advanced awareness of safety and quality will inform the analysis of acute care.
