PG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
Students who enrol in this unit in Term 2 will undertake placement hours during Terms 2 and 3. 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:
articulate an advanced and integrated understanding of the aetiology and pathophysiology of health breakdown in a chosen body system
analyse clinical diagnostic and laboratory results to direct care for the patient in the chronic care setting
apply the principles of evidence-based nursing care to devise strategies and interventions to promote independence, wellbeing and quality of life for individuals with chronic illness, and their carers
demonstrate effective nursing skills and critical reflective ability within a range of chronic conditions
