Course Overview

This module covers the application of theory, policy and guidelines relevant to the provision of pharmaceutical and patient care services to patients with specified cardiovascular diseases (atrial fibrillation, angina, heart failure and stroke), renal and hepatic diseases (alcoholic liver disease, chronic kidney disease and hepatorenal syndrome) and diabetes (type 1 and type 2). Case studies reflecting practice across sectors will be used. Students are expected to engage in learning within their workplace to inform and improve their autonomous practice and contributions as part of the multidisciplinary team.

This module provides students with an understanding of the management of patients based on integrated care principles. The learning outcomes of this module will be achieved by a variety of methods including: experiential learning in the workplace facilitated by a work based or academic tutor, independent learning, identification of learning needs related to continuing professional development, independent review of materials available for eLearning, structured reading, problem based learning, seminars and group discussion on study days.
