What will I learn?
The Clinical Decision Making module is a new module designed to enable students to develop a deeper understanding of clinical situations and how health care professionals make clinical decisions. Patients/clients have the right to expect those responsible for their care and treatment to be effective in their practice. This requires that the practitioner be appropriately educated and trained to be able to take responsibility for their actions (RCN 2008). This module will support the practitioner in developing an understanding of the theory and frameworks underpinning clinical decision making to support their own practice.
