6cp; workshops: 4 x 7hrs



This subject focuses on three key areas. Firstly, students consolidate their understanding of how to ensure optimal person-centred care for the acutely ill patient and their family. Secondly, students think critically about current systems and processes used to assess risk and prioritise the care of patients during episodes of acute deterioration. Lastly, students explore, rehearse and reflect on the role and accountability of the nurse in leading, communicating and collaborating with the multidisciplinary team to manage situations which require rapid patient assessment and response.
