This unit is the first of two in the Clinical Studies in Nursing: Year 1 cluster. In this unit the notions of person-centred care, the role of nursing in the interdisciplinary team, evidence-based practice, and quality improvement approaches in health care are explored. To achieve this, opportunities are provided for students to explore the role of nurses in promoting healing environments for patients and their families. Key concepts to be addressed include assessment and management of patient function and risk, and promotion of patient comfort. An orienting framework will be provided to enable students to understand nursing skill development throughout the curriculum. Students will have the opportunity to further develop and integrate knowledge and skills learned during a one (1) week clinical placement.
