Why choose this course?

This stand-alone module enhances your knowledge of identifying physical health concerns in assessment of adults, complimenting your history taking skills with critical debate and diverse medical knowledge. You will be able to produce analysis of patients’ biological, psychological and social determinants of health, then use this analysis to form a rational, information-based plan for clinical care. The University of Wolverhampton encourages its students to develop reflective, critical thinking and appraisal skills, broadly applicable to a wide range of career paths and especially to patient care, where your ability to assess your own and your peers’ work will inform your practice.
