Module aims

This module will explore a range of complex conditions across different age groups, settings and lifespan. Students will explore how different providers and organisations will contribute to the care of an individual, and recognise where individuals may be at risk. Students will situate this within the Nursing Associate role, and examine how they can work in partnership to support integrated care  as to improve the outcomes of care for individuals.

Module learning outcomes

By the end of the module, students will be able to:

  1. Outline the complex nature of a range of specific conditions across different settings and the lifespan.

  2. Discuss how a person’s mental capacity can affect their ability to make decisions regarding their care, particularly identifying those who are vulnerable and at risk.

  3. Explore different providers and organisations involved in care of an individual.

  4. Recognise when individuals are at risk, in discomfort, anxious or in pain and identify when to escalate concerns and take action.

  5. Critically analyse how the Nursing Associate works within a team collaboratively to support care integration and to maintain the effectiveness of care interventions in a range of situations.
