ECHO13007 - Cardiac Clinical Unit 3

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This clinical unit will provide opportunities to apply and integrate both theoretical and practical knowledge, skills and professional behaviours in the clinical environment, independently and under the supervision of qualified professionals. You will consolidate skills in cardiovascular assessment using echocardiography. You will then apply your knowledge to the analysis of the outcomes of cardiac assessment. Analysis of clinical case studies will enable you to provide differential diagnoses, patient management plans and reflection on practice within an ethical framework of best practice and patient safety. Behavioural aspects of professional practice are emphasised and you are expected to reflect on your own performance and exhibit the highest level of safe patient care. Critical appraisal of performance will enable you to advance your professional, technical and analytical skills in a work setting under qualified supervision.
