Skills and Training
The aim of this module is to contextualize and evaluate critically the changing landscape of diagnosis, treatment and care for children and young people with rheumatic conditions. Advances in medical science, research and technology have engaged expertise, whilst recognizing that the social and psychological aspects of living with rheumatic conditions can co-create a different reality from that which is seen by clinicians and researchers. Consequently collaborative practice engages the 'team around the child/young person' in pursuit of high quality evidence-based shared care, optimally coupled with robust treatment pathways to support the patient journey, including future focused transitional care. This module will therefore foster and develop students' evidence-based learning, enabling them to deliver contemporary safe, ethical and compassionate care to children and young people.WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
