About this Unit
The focus of this unit is to provide nursing students with the problem-solving skills required in assessing and caring for people across the lifespan who are experiencing acute life-threatening illness and end of life conditions. Through a primary health care approach, the unit will use the National Health Priorities of Cardiovascular Health, Injury Prevention and Control, Cancer Control, Mental Health and dementia to exemplify the inter-relationship between acute and chronic conditions and the nursing responsibilities related to life threatening illness and end of life care. The unit includes 160 hours of clinical placement.
