Course programme

This module provides the experienced health care practitioner with the opportunity to develop advanced skills in the assessment, diagnosis and management of minor illness and minor injuries and apply these skills to their clinical service environment.
It explores the underpinning theoretical knowledge base, communication skills, and safe clinical examination skills, aiming to develop your ability to make confident, autonomous and evidence based patient care decisions and inform the development of effective care management plans.
Students will be expected to independently synthesise and apply their clinical skills and knowledge to the context of their own professional practice.
Assessment, Diagnosis and Clinical Judgement in Practice

Students will be expected to relate physical and holistic findings to clinical history and best evidence, in order to establish a differential diagnosis and inform their development of care management plans.
The overall aim of this module is to progressively develop the ability to formulate a diagnostic judgement and make appropriate clinical decisions, based on best-evidence and a sound interpretation of the knowledge base.
Students will be expected to independently synthesise and apply their clinical skills and knowledge to the context of their own professional practice.
