This innovative and exciting module will examine the general principles of clinical examination before specifically addressing traumatic injury in different anatomical areas such as head and neck trauma, upper limb and lower limb injuries and injury to the torso. It will additionally examine relevant differences in presentation in children and the older patient and provide the knowledge and skills required to interpret plain x-rays.
It is therefore suitable for nurses, paramedics, pharmacists, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals working in primary care centres, urgent and out of hours care, walk in centres, minor injury units, emergency departments and pre-hospital settings.
You must have 2 years post-registration experience as a registered health professional in an unscheduled care setting such as those above. Please state your experience on your aplication form.
You must also undertake module 6HW071 - Theory into Practice for Emergency Practitioners (Minor Injuries) with this module. The 2018/19 cost for 6HW071 is £628.55. Please select both modules on your application form.
