This subject extends the student's abilities and skills to practice in more complex medical surgical contexts. It provides students with an opportunity to extend their ability to undertake increasingly complex nursing activities in a range of care settings. The importance of comprehensive health assessment is particularly emphasised in this subject. Well targeted nursing interventions, appropriately planned nursing care and the application of best evidence to practice is also considered. Particular attention is given to advanced complex wound assessment and care and the assessment and management of the deteriorating patient. At all times during this subject nursing practice is considered within a multidisciplinary framework. Students have the opportunity to reflect on their practice and determine self-identified learning needs appropriate to subject focus.
