The aim of this unit is to combine the different components of advanced practice including clinician responsibility, accountability and patient-client advocacy. Students will be prepared to integrate advanced patient assessment skills, diagnostic reasoning, mental health, cultural issues and pathophysiology and pharmacology knowledge in the development of a patient management plan for those with complex care requirements. To inform accurate diagnostic reasoning and clinical decision-making, advanced health assessment requires the registered nurse to use information accessed through clinical technologies, patient monitoring systems, digital image storage and transfer systems and patient information systems.
Students will gain skills in moderating the interface between patients/clients and clinical technologies, the safe and accurate storage and transfer of clinical information, and advanced digital literacy skills. The student will identify abnormal variations from normal physiological health states and critically analyse treatment plans that encompass evidence-based practice and the role and responsibilities of the registered nurse, according to their practice area/clinical domain. The student will further develop their skills in sourcing, accessing, and verifying reliable sources of evidence for practice within the multidisciplinary team.
