Summary of Content

This module will enable students to develop knowledge, skills and understanding to manage and lead a range of care providers in the delivery of person, family centred care through the trajectory of illness from onset through to end of life. This will include managing clinical deterioration. The module will include teaching students how to create and support a quality culture, managing risk, and ensuring efficient and effective use of resources, effective coordination and communication between individuals, families and health and social care professionals, working to provide integrated care to support individuals in meeting their personal health goals. Students will discuss implementing and embedding anticipatory care in proactive approaches to care planning, from self management through to end of life, and develop an understanding of advance care planning to discuss and record personal wishes in advance of deterioration of health, empowering and enabling individuals to make informed choices about their own health and wellbeing and discuss any concerns with those close to them or involved in their care.
