Description

This subject builds on 92430 Assessment and Therapeutics in Health Care 1. Students explore the process of clinical judgement at a foundational level in the care of adults admitted to hospital for elective or emergency surgical procedures. Students are encouraged to develop a holistic approach to facilitate patients' recovery and discharge to the community. This involves recognition of individuals' responses to various factors including the presenting health problem, pre-existing comorbidities, therapeutic interventions and psychosocial factors. Skills in health assessment, holistic patient-centred and clinical care, professional communication including clinical handover and documentation, team work, application of evidenced-based practice, health promotion and health education are further developed in the clinical setting.
