Course description

The aim of this course is to provide students with opportunities to explore the nature and lived experience of individuals who have chronic issues. A key tenet of this this course is the centrality of the individual and their support systems, including families, and the registered nurse's role in supporting these people. The course is situated in a primary healthcare framework and enables students to develop their theoretical knowledge and skills around health promotion, prevention, early intervention and the promotion of self-management in the context of chronic conditions. In addition, students will explore care planning, interprofessional teamwork, rehabilitative care and palliative care. The course content will be delivered over a 13 week period, utilising flipped classroom teaching approaches in clinical workshops, theoretical workshop sessions, online learning activities and self-directed learning.
