Level 1 BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES This module provided the necessary background in biological science to understand and describe the structure and functions of the human body and associated organs. INTRODUCTION TO NURSING PRACTICE This unit provided students with an opportunity to demonstrate a range of essential nursing skills, under the supervision of a registered nurse, to meet individuals’ needs, and to contribute to the assessment, planning and evaluation of nursing care. PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF NURSING 1 In contemporary society, nurses are required to work in a range of health care settings, including primary, emergency, secondary, intermediate and palliative care, adapting their roles to meet the changing demands of the public health agenda. This unit is introduced students to the principles and practice of nursing. Furthermore, the unit explored the proficiencies associated with the four IPASVI (Federazione Nazionale Collegi Infermieri professionali, Assistenti sanitari, Vigilatrici d'infanzia) domains of professional and ethical practice, care delivery, care management and personal and professional development, from an evidence and practice perspective. PSYCHOLOGY OF HEALTH In this unit, we learnt the perspective of health and illness, which embraces the interaction of bio-medical, psychosocial and cultural influences. The importance of the bio-psycho-social model was examined and in particular the student’s attention was drawn to psychological aspects of health and illness. PUBLIC HEALTH This unit introduced students to the concept of public health. It outlines earlier and more recent policy influencing the provision of public health services and provided patient and service users more control over their health and well being. The unit as a whole explores the relationship between the health of the public, the social determinants influencing health and the tools and structures that underpin the assessment and provision of health services. The unit will develop students’ understanding of the contribution of public health to improving the health of the population. SERVICE USER PERSPECTIVES This unit allowed students to develop an understanding of the different levels and ways in which service users can be enabled to participate in decision making. Students were encouraged to develop our knowledge of a variety of different service user groups. Service User and Carers were involved in the planning, presentation and evaluation of the Unit. Students were also given the opportunity to reflect upon our prior experience of working with service users and carers. Level 2 PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE 2 In this unit we explored the changing role of the nurse in a variety of health care settings. We investigated from both an evidence base and practice perspective the standards of proficiency required to practice as a registered nurse on the first part of the IPASVI (Federazione Nazionale Collegi Infermieri professionali, Assistenti sanitari, Vigilatrici d'infanzia) Register, including the administration of medicines. This unit extended students’ understanding of the process and management of care, with specific reference to the assessment and management of risk. Throughout the unit, particular consideration was given to patients, clients, carers and service users with chronic conditions. PATHOPHYSIOLOGY In this Unit, we learnt how health is disrupted by disease and disorder with conventional and complementary explanations for the causation of disease being considered. This unit enabled students to apply our physiological knowledge towards an understanding of disease. An introduction to pathological processes was made, and the role of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease was discussed. National and international disease trends were examined; key disorders such as cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes and cancer were examined in depth. ETHICAL, LEGAL AND PROFESSIONAL DIMENSIONS OF HEALTHCARE It is an essential requirement of professional practice that it is carried out within an ethical and legal framework. This Unit introduced students to ethics and the legal system in relation to healthcare. Studying ethical, legal and professional dimensions in healthcare gave students an insight into the theories, principles and rules that govern healthcare practice. The Unit provided students with opportunities to develop the skills of rational argument in ethical debate and to consider our own personal position in relation to contentious issues such as treatment of the terminally ill. HEALTH PROMOTION This Unit introduced students to key concepts in health promotion. The Unit enabled students to develop the abilities required for the effective planning, implementation and evaluation of health promotion strategies. We focused on key settings for health promotion working with both individuals and communities. We covered many of the theoretical aspects of health promotion. We were provided with a definition and overview of health promotion and an appreciation of the theories which underpin the development of different interventions. RESEARCH SKILLS FOR EVIDENCE-BASED AND PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE This Unit enabled us to explore and develop a critical appreciation of health care research. It developed our skills in reading, analysing and utilising research, which gave us the opportunity to explore research methods. DEVELOPING ADULT NURSING PRACTICE This unit facilitated the development of practice skills and achievement of proficiencies necessary for entry on to the nursing register. It also facilitated the achievement of competencies outlined for Public Health Practice, and provided support for placements throughout the second year of the programme. This unit provided support for practice placements in the second year, ensuring that students meet the European Union Directives in relation to practice experiences. Level 3 PUBLIC HEALTH: SKILLS AND PRACTICES This Unit enabled us to develop further our skills and knowledge of the fundamental aspects of public health care, current issues and strategic developments influencing the health of the public. Through delivery of key lectures supported by participative seminars we were encouraged to think independently, applying knowledge and learning to a variety of situations. We performed critical analysis and evaluation of policy, appraising research findings and offering solutions to public health dilemmas. The unit provided an educational structure which supported the development of the core and specific dimensions in the Azienda Unita' Sanitaria Locale Key Knowledge and skills framework (KSF). We undertook a systematic investigation of our chosen community for our summative assessment, identifying and assessing need, using public health research tools to examine impacts on health, evaluating service provision and making recommendations relating the public health priorities. Specific strategies in health care practice was analysed and evaluated and we contributed by improving community health, promoting well being and supporting individuals in living independently and making healthy lifestyle choices. PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF NURSING 3 This unit helped us to consolidate and extend the theoretical and practice competencies, skills and knowledge acquired during the programme. The unit provided learning opportunities to facilitate transition from student to registered nurse, through a curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment strategy which complemented the Preceptorship programmes of education and support, offered by local health care trusts. PUBLIC SERVICES MANAGEMENT and LEADERSHIP The Health Service was constantly improving clinical effectiveness due to current Government Policies and Directives and consequently there is a continuing need for staff to acquire the necessary managerial skills to function effectively. This unit aided us how to develop knowledge and awareness of the effects of recent and current changes in services together with the requirements for enabling the delivery of care through the management of staff and resources in the context of clinical governance. The unit also developed our knowledge and skills for decision making and work force planning and gave us a basic understanding of the skills required for successful management, exploring clinical governance, inter-professional working, leadership and examining the organisational culture of the National Health Service. HEALTH INEQUALITIES The module enabled students to analyse and compare of the commissioning, access and use of health services in Italy. The relationship between socio–economic status and poverty with regard to health and health care provision was critically analysed. Historical and contemporary patterns of disease and ill health was compared to current epidemiological data. Seminal texts and the Health divide was used to explore the lack of progress in reducing health inequalities. Theoretical models and theories of the social determinants of health will be debated The diversity of experience in health care needs and access to services in relation to specific minority groups in society such as travelling families, asylum seekers and ethnic minorities will be examined. The themes of culture and subculture will be explored in relation to health inequality. Students will engage with a variety of complex issues such as the relative disadvantage of underrepresented groups in contemporary society. INDEPENDENT STUDY This unit provided the principal vehicle by which students could clearly illustrate their ability to synthesise the differing disciplinary approaches and theoretical perspectives they have studied. The purpose of the unit was fulfilled by ability of designing and conducting a research study related to nursing practice presented in the form of a dissertation that examines critically the relationship between theory and practice. It also provided students with the opportunity to illustrate our potential as independent, reflective graduates in nursing. MANAGEMENT OF ADULT NURSING PRACTICE This unit facilitated the consolidation of practice and management of care skills. It also provided support for practice learning placements in our third year, together with support for the final management placement. The unit facilitated achievement of the standards of proficiency necessary for entry onto the nursing register. It also facilitated the achievement of competencies outlined for Public Health Practice.
