This unit will consolidate your knowledge of the vast array of medical, environmental and mental health issues through varying ages, community groups, and social cohorts. In this unit, you will study the prehospital management of various medical conditions and learn how to discriminate between similar and confounding presentations. Through case-based learning, you will apply clinical knowledge and skills and develop your critical thinking and clinical judgement skills to confidently reach diagnoses. This will enable you to determine the most appropriate clinical management following contemporary industry guidelines and protocols. A residential school will consolidate your knowledge with practice in high-fidelity simulation case management exercises.
