Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to L0s
There will be a blended approach to the teaching and learning in this module. Scenarios will be used to support the teaching and learning methods to stimulate discussion and exploration within the context of the impact of illness, injury and long term conditions has on infants, children, young people and families (LO 1&2) .Effective communication in child health care will be explored through the scenario based learning, communication process and the range of techniques and skills that establish effective compassionate care and support for children, young people and their families (LO3) . The scenario based approach will encourage the students to identify areas of enquiry of interest to them through exploration of the scenarios. New areas of enquiry will be identified at each tutorial session for the students to choose from. Scenario summaries will include focus on ways in which children and families can be supported and empowered (LO4).
Using the same learning activities students will also consider factors which affect child health and the role as a children’s nurse in the legal and ethical decision making (LO 5).
Students will learn associated clinical skills and participate in module related simulated patient scenarios within the Simulation and Clinical Skills Centre to apply the theory amassed to near life scenarios (LO 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Feedback will be provided by lecturers and student groups within the skills activities.
Feedback will be provided during the face-to-face tutorial groups and online sessions and discussions

Group feedback will be given on one scenario summary developed as part of your course work submitted in week 29.

Summative Assessment:
Portfolio LO: 1- 5
This will be in the form of course work 3,500 word in length which will be submitted in week 38.

Description of module content:

This module will build on your knowledge and understanding in relation to the recognition and response to children and young people affected by a range of common childhood conditions. You will apply knowledge and understanding of altered physiology to assess the alteration in health, interpret the results and consider appropriate intervention. Using scenario based enquiry you will identify ways in which children and families can be supported and empowered. Legal and ethical evidence based decision making processes in child health practice will be investigated. You will enhance your communication and compassionate caring skills through exploration of the different types and use of communication tools.
