Stoma Care Specialist Nursing requires extensive clinical knowledge and expertise to ensure that people living with a stoma receive holistic, person-centred and evidence-based care. This module aims to build in-depth knowledge, understanding and skills applied to all aspects of your role. You will critically evaluate and reflect on your own professional responsibilities, the context in which you practice and the diverse and complex needs of the patient populations you serve. Varied and innovative teaching and learning methods aim to develop your critical thinking, communication skills, problem-solving and decision-making appropriate, and directly applied to, an advanced level of stoma care nursing practice.
This module advances your professional development by drawing on the four pillars of advanced practice: management and leadership, education, research and advanced clinical practice. It reinforces the core principle that advanced practice is a level of practice rather than a particular role.
