Assessment and Management of Mental Health issues for Paramedics and related Health Practitioners Level 6 & 7 Module
Nursing, Midwifery, Allied Health Professionals
This module has been designed to meet the needs of a range of acute, primary, unscheduled and emergency practitioners. These include Nurse Practitioners in A&E departments and primary care, practice nurses, Emergency Care Practitioners (ECPs)s, midwives and prison health staff and takes account of the lack of knowledge, skills and confidence that many practitioners have in assessing and managing a range of mental health issues in non-mental health specialist environments.
This module aims to develop the non-mental health practitioner’s understanding of:
• Mental health assessment, current evidence and approaches to screening and risk assessment
• Exploration of a range of common mental health presentations and their management.

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.
