Expanding Primary Health Care Practice - NURS5096

Year - 2020

In this unit of study, students will explore the ways in which nurses can articulate their personal practice knowledge and enhance this with an understanding of primary health care educational and policy-based perspectives to make a significant contribution to the development of their own practice, the practice of others, the inter-professional delivery of evidence-based care and evidence-informed policy. The unit explores local, state, national and international social, technological and political issues that impact on and inform primary health care in Australia and the key government and professional bodies involved in primary health care policy. Additionally, as part of expanding the individual nurse's repertoire, students will be encouraged to broaden their specialty knowledge and nursing practice and will have the opportunity to further develop specialist knowledge and/or practice related to a specific practice topic.
