INTRODUCTION Welcome to module PUP 2222 Applied Sciences for Health and Wellbeing (One). On successful completion of all the elements within the module, you will be awarded 30 credits at Level 5. This Year 2 life sciences module will build on the Foundation Sciences for Nursing module undertaken in Year 1. The module will focus on the disease process, its pathophysiology, homeostatic effects and the psychosocial factors involved. Therefore you will be introduced to a number of body systems, disease processes and influences and abnormalities that may affect the system including the impact they have on homeostasis. The pharmacological contexts will provide you with a clear understanding of medicines management, which underpins nursing care delivery. You will also learn how illness impacts on the individual/ client behaviour, relationships, adherence to treatment and on the development of therapeutic relationships. The continued development of key skills will enable you to undertake physical clinical assessment of individuals/ clients essential for safe and effective care. You will be supported in the development of a range of clinical assessment skills e.g. nutritional assessment, fluid balance, MEWS and PEWS, pain assessment and medicines management. Throughout the module we will be your module leaders. Our contact details are listed on the cover of this handbook together with details of module contributors. If you wish to arrange a tutorial with a module leader or contributor outside of the timetabled support sessions (in Semester 2), please contact your tutor to arrange an appointment. This will ensure that the tutor is available to see you and will prevent you having a wasted journey. This module handbook should be read in conjunction with your Programme Handbook provided at the start of the course and available in your BlackBoard area, which details important information regarding confidentiality, academic rules, regulations and support. On behalf of all the staff on the module, we would like to offer you a warm welcome and wish you every success in Year 2. We hope that you enjoy the module and gain a lot from it. Mary Farrelly Catriona Levshankova Module Leaders

ONLINE SUPPORT FOR LEARNING

To support independent study you will have access to Blackboard 9.1 (Learning Edge) just as you had in Year 1. The whole module is supported by Blackboard, which will contain links to relevant module materials available on the internet as well as links to electronic journals and books to provide you with flexible 24/7 access. If things change or we need to notify about information on Blackboard we will announce it via email.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

On successful completion of the module you will be able to: 1. Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of specific body systems and the pathophysiological basis of the management of a specific disease process. 2. Demonstrate an indepth understanding of the impact of disease on homeostasis. 3. Analyse the psychosocial factors that may impact upon the disease process. 4. Demonstrate a knowledge of the pharmacological/psychosocial interventions relating to identified body systems.

4


ASSESSMENT STRATEGY

Formative Assessment Within this module a range of formal and informal assessment procedures will be employed during the learning process to support you in achieving the learning outcomes and to improve your performance in the summative assessment. Assessment will be tailored to field specific scenarios and small group activities. You will have the opportunity to practice clinical skills, numerical and drug calculations and participate in activities that aid your understanding of pathophysiology, psychology and sociology.

Summative Assessment The summative assessment is in two parts and both elements must be passed: Part 1 Design and production of an educational resource (e.g. educational resource) relating to a chosen disease process. This must meet Learning Outcome nos 1 & 3; 50% of the mark.

Part 2 Supporting paper. 1500 words; This must meet Learning Outcome nos 2 & 4; 50% of the mark.

In order to pass the module, the mark must be above 40% in each part.

5


ASSIGNMENT GUIDANCE

In order to meet the learning outcomes for Part 1, you will need to create one educational resource e.g. a patient factsheet; an educational poster or a PowerPoint presentation. The resource will need to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of body systems and the pathophysiological basis of the management of a specific disease process (e.g. endocarditis; pneumonia; thyroid condition or gastroenteritis) (LO1) and the psychosocial factors that may impact upon the disease process (LO3). The educational resource that you design will be aimed at a specific target audience. You will need to select your audience from one of the following groups: patients or their relatives; student nurses or junior staff nurses. In order to meet the learning outcomes for Part 2, you will need to produce a 1,500 word supporting paper. The paper needs to explore the effects of the chosen disease process on homeostasis (LO2) and examine the pharmacological/ psychosocial interventions relating to the identified body system(s) (LO4). Look at the learning outcomes 1 to 4 above and ensure that you have covered these. You will need to pass both parts of the assessment at 40% or above to achieve an overall pass for the module. Further assessment guidelines will be given within planned teaching session(s) in the second half of the module (i.e. in Semester 2). Harvard referencing should be used throughout both parts of the assessment. http://www.eshare.edgehill.ac.uk/1133/1/HR_guide_RevisedDec2011.pdf Referencing errors will impact on your overall mark.

Supporting Paper Presentation 1. Clear and legible font (size 12, Times New Roman or Arial); 2. Double spaced; 3. Number pages; 4. Online submission.

TURNITIN: INTERPRETING ORIGINALITY REPORTS The Originality Report is a report that highlights text in students’ work that has been submitted through Turnitin and then displays matches with the database that have the same or very similar wording. This consists of all quotes and paraphrases that students have included in their work, as well as phrases, which are favourably similar to other sources. Turnitin compares students’ work with text from: • • •

Published books, documents, journals, and articles; Websites, databases, and information repositories; Work submitted to Turnitin.


The report also includes a Similarity Score, which is a percentage, indicating how much of your essay matched other sources in the Turnitin Databases. If you receive a Similarity Score of 30% this means that Turnitin has identified 30% of your work as being similar to existing work stored in the database. There is NO similarity score that the student should aim for as a target. The Originality Report is usually ready in 5-10 minutes post-submission but can take longer when the demand is high.

HOW TO USE THE ORIGINALITY REPORT EFFECTIVELY

Armed with your similarity score and the list of colour-coded web-based links that matches each source highlighted in your text, you can begin direct comparison for in-depth analysis of the use of sources in your work. Features of this analysis should include: 1. 2. 3. 4.

The amount of textual borrowing; The reliance on sources; The accuracy of citations; The effectiveness of paraphrasing.

The main aim of the report is to help guide the student to rewrite their work to the point that they feel confident about the content, as well as improve academic skills to avoid poor academic practice by recognising the various forms of plagiarism.

CONFIDENTIALITY STATEMENT

There should be no reference within your assessed work to any name or identifying information relating to patients/clients or any staff member of any organisation. Inclusion of such information will result in a failed submission. Where it is relevant to state the name of any organisation, the information should be supported by reference to published documents that are available to the general public and form approved official documentation relating to the operation and provision of that organisation. It would be considered relevant to include the name of an organisation when:   

Discussing/debating/analysing published data relating to the performance of that organisation. Discussing/debating/analysing published and approved policy and strategy of that organisation. Discussing/debating/analysing published research/evaluations/audit/opinion, which relates to and names that organisation.

Where the assignment requires reflection or analysis of specific practice/patient/client/service user scenarios, confidentiality must be maintained by the use of pseudonyms. Whilst retaining the essence of the scenario, where necessary some information may be altered to enhance anonymity, e.g., changing the number of siblings/children/place or type of work/accommodation or housing.

For further details relating to both assessment process and regulations, please refer to your Programme Handbook.
