Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
demonstrate engagement and empathetic communication with individuals and groups experiencing mental health related problems across the lifespan
provide clinically effective, recovery focused and trauma informed mental health nursing care
effectively undertake assessment, planning, interventions and evaluation of care with people who frequently access acute mental health services
