Professional Credit Award

This level 9 module has been developed as a collaborative initiative between the Vascular Team, Saolta University HealthCare Group, the Discipline of Podiatric Medicine and the School of Nursing at NUI Galway. The management of patients with disease requires a multidisciplinary approach, expert knowledge and a dedication to service provision and service development underpinned by evidence-based practice. Being cognisant of this the module will be delivered by a team of experts in vascular diseases from a range of specialities including vascular, medicine, podiatry, nursing, and primary care experts. The focus of the module is to ensure that the student has the capacity to remain current and is capable of updating themselves on new interventions and approaches to the prevention and management of vascular diseases. The goal is to facilitate life-long learning. Therefore, the module has been carefully designed with the aim of ensuring that students have a thorough understanding of, and in-depth knowledge of the principles of prevention and management, and how these can be applied to vascular disease. Clinical care will be considered in the context of multi-professional management which will involve an appreciation of national and international guidelines in addition to a range of strategic healthcare polices and initiatives. Students will develop critical reasoning techniques and problem solving skills, which will be verified by evaluation of evidence to enable sound judgements to be reached and effective multi-professional communication to take place. These themes will be developed with particular relevance to the student’s work setting. 

This module forms part of the Master/PG Dip Health Science (Wound Healing and Tissue Repair).
