Coping With Complexity in Persistent Illness

Building on understanding from introductory courses in year 1, students gain a deeper understanding of the complexity of challenges which are specific to selected age groups, illness categories, institutional and home contexts. Complexity includes pathophysiology, individual and family circumstances, related interventions, and the care delivery context. Classes are in seminar format and students have the opportunity to explore and critique issues that arise from readings and how they relate to clinical practice and concurrent Year 2 courses. In addition, all students participate in a number of simulation lab experiences. The goal of these sessions is to provide students with key content and practice in a series of selected advanced nursing skills of clinical practice relevance.
