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:

demonstrate safe oral and IV medication administration for paediatric patients including accurate medication dosage calculations

articulate the physiological and anatomical differences between children and adults and their consequent pathophysiological implications on common paediatric clinical presentations.

discuss cognitive and developmental milestones which affect children and the impact global and public health has on these

demonstrate critical thinking, assessment and communication with the paediatric patient within a child and family-centred nursing paradigm
