Content

This unit is one of two in this trimester focusing on further developing the speciality knowledge, skills and professional behaviours required for advanced emergency care nursing practice. There is a focus on refining the student’s ability to identify, synthesise, analyse and critically evaluate complex data from patient and technologically-derived sources to identify risk and inform decisions that deliver safe, high quality nursing care and promote optimal patient outcomes. The nurse’s role in being a high performing member of the multidisciplinary health team with strong communication skills is emphasised. Through engagement with the unit material, clinical practice and personal reflection, students will develop greater decision making autonomy, critical thinking and leadership skills, advanced clinical judgement, and enhanced professionalism.

 

The unit is designed to prepare nurses for specialty emergency care practice and covers: assessment and therapeutic management of patients with a variety of complex cardiovascular and neurological dysfunctions; advanced electrocardiography concepts; physical, psychosocial and functional care of clinically frail and elderly critically ill and injured patients; and risk management of mental health, paediatric, gynaecological, obstetric, oncology and primary care presentations and injuries.
