PUP 2170 Principles and Practice of Adult Nursing Introduction & Welcome Building upon the first year, this module will identify the components of holistic nursing underpinned by a relevant theoretical and physiological knowledge base. This module will develop the student’s ability to acquire the essential skills associated with safe and effective care. It will focus upon the assessment, planning, intervention and evaluation of care from a patient-centred, holistic perspective. There will be an emphasis on the service user perspective and their experience of health care services. There is a specific theme in relation to lung and breast cancers, using the patient’s personal experience of receiving a diagnosis of cancer and the cancer services they are likely to need. This handbook should be read in conjunction with the Course Handbook. Students are advised to discuss the content of this module handbook with their mentors in practice. Learning Outcomes On successful completion of the module students will be able to: 1. Implement and evaluate an individual plan of care utilising data collected during the assessment process. (NMC D1-D2; F1-F3; G1-G3) 2. Identify and select relevant assessment tools appropriate to the patient’s needs. (NMC H1-H6; J1-J2) 3. Analyse effective communication strategies central to therapeutic relationships. (NMC D1-D2; N1-N3; O1-O4) 4. Demonstrate a sound understanding of the relevant patho-physiology related to the patient’s condition. (NMC F1-F3; K1-K4) Overview of Module This module covers 6 weeks Week commencing 23rd April - 28th May inclusive

Academic Skills Support In addition to your personal tutor, Learning Services provides support for students to develop academic skills. Support is provided at Armstrong House, Aintree (Liverpool) and Ormskirk and includes workshops and individual or group support for all students on a range of skills such as essay writing, exam technique, referencing, seminar presentations. One-to-One Study Skills These sessions are tailored to your requirements. Availability may be limited so please ring and book a session. Sessions and appointments are available at all three health sites, students should get in touch with Inclusive Services who are based in the University Library at Ormskirk to make an informal inquiry or book an appointment. Ormskirk Campus, 1st Floor, University Library – telephone: 01695 584372 – email: inclusiveservices@edgehill.ac.uk Inclusive Services It is Edge Hill’s aim to make our services and provision accessible to all our users. If you need us to present our training/resources/information in a different format (eg electronic copy, large print), or need any other modifications, please contact your Personal Tutor and we will do our best to accommodate your requirements. If you have a disability or a specific learning difficulty (such as Dyslexia or Dyspraxia), EHU will be able to support you better, if you let us know about it. If you feel your ability to study, read, write or concentrate is affected by a disability, mental health need or a specific learning difficulty, Edge Hill can offer learning support and guidance tailored to your individual requirements. You can arrange an appointment for a confidential chat to explore your learning requirements and help you make informed choices regarding support. Please contact your personal tutor for more guidance or contact Inclusive Services as per email above or web: www.edgehill.ac.uk/inclusiveservices The Inclusive Services Team aims to provide:   

An holistic service to students with a wide range of learning and additional needs arising from physical or sensory impairments, mental health or complex needs. Confidential advice, guidance and support to applicants and students with disabilities, mental health needs, visual or hearing impairments. Support and advice regarding applications for disabled Students Allowance (DSA).

Protocol for Change of Placement In order to manage placement capacity effectively it is important that forward planning takes place, taking into account the educational requirements of students. Similarly, placement areas require early notification of allocated students for their planning to take place. Therefore, a student may only change their placement in exceptional circumstances. A change of placement can only be agreed by the appropriate Academic Lead or Head of Department. It is neither fair nor appropriate to refer students to administration staff.

10

JF/JFl/EO/DMO/CH/April11 PUP2170/April 2012


Travelling to a placement is not a factor, unless travelling exceeds 1½ hours. Examples of exceptional circumstances are: • • • •

Pregnancy, when the health of the mother or foetus would be at risk Working in the same area as a relative A previous incident which may prove difficult for all concerned Advice from Occupational Health in respect of a health risk to student or clients

The above is not an exhaustive list, but is provided as an example. Judgement will be exercised by the Academic Lead.
