This subject is designed to provide a contemporary, evidence-based framework for improving the quality of acute care nursing, reflecting pre-determined nursing sensitive indicators. The subject will strengthen students’ ability to critique their individual and workplace practices, in light of what is considered as 'best practice' in acute care nursing. Students will consider potential improvements to the practice of acute care nursing, at both individual and systemic levels, and develop strategies to integrate these.
