UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
Enrolment for this unit closes on Thursday of Orientation Week. This unit contains Work Integrated Learning (WIL) activities that require students to meet mandatory fit to practice obligations prior to attending. Failure to comply by the fit to practice deadline will result in the cancellation of your WIL activity. Full details are available at www.scu.edu.au/healthplacements.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
determine appropriate actions to be taken in the management of a deteriorating patient
integrate principles of safe medication practice, including numeracy competency, in managing the acute patient condition
