Continuing Professional Development (short course)
Module code: MOD001982
Module level: 6
Module credits: 45 credits
Develop your skills in caring for people with chronic kidney disease and renal failure, and those receiving treatment. You’ll acknowledge the importance of dignity and respect for the individual, and of evidence-based care and teamwork in your practice.
If you're a registered nurse working in specialist renal clinical areas, our Level 6 module will give you the opportunity to explore and develop your knowledge and skills to meet the needs of people with renal failure, their families and carers.
The module will address the needs of the people with chronic kidney disease and those receiving Peritoneal Dialysis and Haemodialysis. It will consider in particular their right to dignity, respect and evidence-based specialist care. In order to receive care that is effective and of high quality, renal patients and their families are dependent on effective teamwork, communication and clinical decision making. We'll look at the role and contribution of the specialist nurse in relation to the multidisciplinary team.
Our module is taught through a series of lectures, tutorials and group work, all of which you'll need to attend. The module will be assessed theoretically through a client care analysis. Practice assessment will be undertaken in clinical practice by an experienced mentor who is a suitably qualified and experienced practitioner. You'll need to demonstrate achievement of criteria in the practice assessment document to pass the module. You must undertake a discussion with your manager to discuss your readiness to commence this module, and have obtained requisite support to access relevant clinical experiences that will enable achievement of the practice assessment criteria.
You will undertake an analysis of your client care and practice outcomes.
You’ll be a registered nurse currently working in a renal care setting and you’ll need the agreed support of a suitable mentor.
The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
