Credit points: 15

Subject outline

You will have the opportunity to extend your knowledge and skills gained in NSG2HPA, specifically in relation to the pathophysiology and medication management of neurological, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, renal and haematological conditions of National Health Priorities (NHP) across the lifespan. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of each of the NHP areas by examining the aetiology, pathophysiology, assessment, diagnostic testing (haematology, biochemistry, microbiology, medical imaging) and pharmacology related to commonly encountered disease states. The focus will be on chronic diseases of national priority with particular emphasis on the assessment and patient centred nursing management, including the pharmaco-therapeutics and medication management of those conditions. Related concepts of chronic pain, substance abuse and the use of complementary therapies will also be explored.
