Learning outcomes

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:

identify the influence of social determinants and cultural factors on health and chronic illness

apply the principles of evidence based nursing to devise strategies and interventions to promote independence, wellbeing and quality of life for individuals with chronic illness

demonstrate integration of knowledge, safe patient management, and nursing skills relevant to chronic illness

conduct a comprehensive or focused health assessment depending on the situation for individuals with chronic illness or disability
