Description

Subject – Paramedic Science  Assessment is an essential part of the module and is linked to the learning outcomes. Modules make use of summative and formative assessments and these are described below. Types of Assessment Formative assessment Has a developmental purpose and is designed to help learners learn more effectively by giving them feedback on their performance and on how it can be improved and/or maintained. Linked to the module learning outcomes it is used to help students prepare for their summative assessment. This may or may not be graded and does not count to the final module score. Summative assessment Used to indicate the extent of a learner’s success in meeting the assessment criteria used to gauge the intended learning outcomes of a module or programme. Assessment grades are used to calculate end of module grades and overall degree class.   This module has the following assessment tasks that are described below. Title, type of assessment: This assessment are 2, 1500 word case studies that should be submitted as one 3,000 word piece via turnitin. Rationale for assessment design: The case studies allow for an exploration of the patient assessment and management approach, contextualised in a patient presentation. Links to module learning outcomes: Describe the theoretical basis underpinning key components and priorities in patient assessment, distinguishing between normal and abnormal assessment findings. Drawing on relevant theory outline the differing management options of the patient with both medical and traumatic pathophysiologies. Apply relevant theory in identifying the rationale and supporting evidence for choices made within clinical decision making. Draw on the relevant theory in demonstrating an effective based methodology to patient assessment using a systems based approach. Links to course learning outcomes: Critically examine and demonstrate application of knowledge and understanding of the biopsychosocial concepts in paramedic science to deliver individualised care. Evaluate practice in order to enhance knowledge and understanding and develop and apply advanced skills in Paramedic Care. Evaluate evidenced based approaches to challenge and assist in the development of knowledge and understanding within Paramedic science and care delivery. Evaluate knowledge and understanding of the core foundations underpinning paramedic practice in emergency care and other settings. Demonstrate safe and effective clinical and situational assessment and management whilst considering the psychosocial and cultural needs of the patient. Critically explore the sources of information and resources available to support the Paramedic in clinical practice. Develop commitment to quality care practices which embody the principles of collaboration, respect, dignity,compassion and inclusion in the improvement in patients well-being and health Essay Brief: Welcome to your assessment for the module Patient Assessment and Management 1 (Theory) MOD004877. The aim of this module is to develop the knowledge and understanding required to perform structured assessment of the major body systems and consider management strategies for common pathologies. The assessment strategy for this module aims to further this understanding through engagement with the topic area, and relevant evidence base, in order to meet the learning outcomes (LOs) outlined below. Related learning outcomes: 1 Knowledge and Understanding Describe the theoretical basis underpinning key components and priorities in patient assessment, distinguishing between normal and abnormal assessment findings. 2 Knowledge and Understanding Drawing on relevant theory, outline the differing management options of the patient with both medical and traumatic pathophysiologies. 3 Knowledge and Understanding Apply relevant theory in identifying the rationale and supporting evidence for choices made within clinical decision making. 4 Intellectual, practical, affective and transferrable skills Draw on the relevant theory in demonstrating an effective based methodology to patient assessment using a systems based approach. The assessment for this module is written, comprising 3,000 words split into two 1,500 case studies. These are described later in this assessment brief. Assessment structure: Case 1 – The Medical Patient LO1 – LO4 A 1,500 word, fully referenced exploration of a case study. This will form 40% of the final mark. Case 2 – The Trauma Patient LO1 – LO4 A 1,500 word, fully referenced exploration of a case study. This will form 40% of the final mark. 10% of marks will be for referencing and 10% will be for writing, see the marking grid on Canvas for the full break down.   Some important aspects to remember: • The assignment is to be written in the third person. This allows more objectivity within your writing whilst further allowing you to consider all aspects of the topic, from a variety of viewpoints; Case study to use:  Medical patient case study: A patient complaining of an episode of chest pain, diagnosed with and treated for a myocardial infarction. (1500 words) Trauma patient case study: A pedestrian who has been hit by a car, diagnosed with and treated for a pelvic fracture. (1500 words)  Outline what observations or history taking  signs you would look for as trigger points for treatment, what would cause you concern, show me you know the condition. “I want to see that you know the theory of  approaching and managing the patient’s presentation.” “Remember the purpose of this, for you to show me you can talk through and understand the  assessment and management of some conditions, but also the general approach to the patient.”
