This module will enable you the health care practitioner to develop a holistic approach to the assessment and treatment of patients with minor health problems and prepare you to provide evidence-based care in primary care, urgent care and first contact settings. The module will enable you to build on existing skills that reflect an individualised, empowering and holistic approach to patient health assessment, care management and treatment in a more advanced and autonomous clinical role. You will build on your knowledge base, demonstrating evidence-based practice in the care of a patient with a minor health problem, providing anticipatory guidance and educating patients in self-care.

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.
Every effort has been made to provide information that is current and accurate. Nevertheless, inadvertent errors in information may occur.
