This 20 credit degree-level module will introduce you to the fundamental principles of caring for infants, children and young people with cardiac abnormalities. You will increase your knowledge and understanding of normal and altered cardiac anatomy and physiology and learn how to better apply this in your assessment skills, contributing to safe and effective ward and high dependency focused nursing care and interventions.
You will also build upon your understanding for the rationale for care and be able to implement appropriate family centred, evidence based holistic care.
This module can be studied as a standalone module or as an optional module towards some of our BSc (Hons) Professional Development pathways - please contact the Professional Development Unit for further information.
This module is delivered by Bristol Royal Hospital for Children in partnership with Plymouth University.
