Clinical studies subject



This subject enables students to advance their knowledge of neonatal health dysfunction and its management through critical evaluation of practice. The pathophysiology of disease processes common to the neonatal period is utilised in conjunction with behavioural assessment as rationales for nursing intervention. Consideration is given to the long-term health consequences associated with health dysfunction during the neonatal period. The impact of neonatal health dysfunction on the family and society is explored and the nurse specialist's role in neonatal nursing emphasises leadership and innovative practice.
