The students will in on-line groups review ways in which the inter-professional team can respond to situations that reflect increased vulnerability in child heath practice (LO2).The individual learning activities will direct the student to reflect on the role of the child health nurse working in partnership with the multidisciplinary team to deliver high quality, safe, evidence based and effective care (LO3). The students, in on-line groups, will analyse the strategies available to support compassionate care and communication (LO4). The individual learning activities will direct the student to reflect on child health services in response to societal health change needs (LO5).
