The development of critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills related to health assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of nursing care, care of “the deteriorating patient”, patient safety, cultural competence, therapeutic communication, inter-professional communication, safe medication practices and relevant ethical and legal principles are integral to this subject.
