This subject provides the clinical foundations to the person-centred care of patients across the lifespan. 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. The clinical scenarios and patient stories on cancer control as well as the gastrointestinal and renal system align with those used in 93207 Foundations of Nursing 2A and have been chosen as they are National Health Priorities and represent a significant burden in terms of mortality and morbidity.

Students practice within the framework of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Registered Nurse Standards for Practice and the Patient Safety Competency Framework (PSCF).
