Teaching

  • SHG3033 Tissue Viability

    This module aims to further develop the knowledge and skills of health care professionals who are involved in the care and management of patients with wounds, including pressure and leg ulcers. Students will be required to undertake a minimum of 3 clinical days away from their practice base ideally placed with a wound care specialist.

  • SHG3108 Research and Critical Appraisal

    This module is aimed at enabling persons working within the health sector to gain knowledge of research and critical appraisal skills, including confidence as critical readers of health related research and literature and its application to practice. The module has been developed to meet the needs of practitioners who are expected to deliver evidence based practice. Health care practitioners have a duty to ensure that the care and services delivered are both efficient and effective. To fulfil this expectation, they need to develop a range of skills associated with evidence-based care. Firstly, they must be able to find the evidence. This involves accessing library resources and developing a range of IT skills to search the literature effectively. Secondly, once the evidence is located, they must be able to make sense of it and critically appraise it. Competence in these activities requires understanding of research methods and the critiquing process. The module also aims to improve and develop writing and referencing skills.

  • SHG367 Return to Practice

    The module is intended to allow nurses to study the theoretical and practical aspects of the contemporary role of the nurse.

  • SHN3048 Promoting the Public Health of Populations

  • SHN3058 Consolidating the Practice of Nursing

    The philosophy of the module is the belief that continued development underpins professional practice. Throughout their professional lives, qualified nurses need to take responsibility for their own learning and development. In order to achieve this, they need to be able to recognise their learning and developmental needs, developing appropriate strategies to fulfil them. Development encompasses both personal and professional aspects as one cannot be separated from the other. This module draws on the content of other modules within the year and experiences in practice to introduce the concept of professional practice. The students will demonstrate this learning through the medium of a portfolio and by producing a patchwork text.
