The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate successful completion of the module learning outcomes.

Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of a case study essay to demonstrate the intra-operative management of a major case with consideration either to shared life, shared airway or paediatrics (2000 words in total) (LO 1,2,3,4,5,6)

Formative assessment

Students will provide a detailed plan to be discussed within a facilitated peer-group formative feedback meeting held by their personal tutor.

Feedback

Students will receive feedback on their plan during the module via verbal feedback within small facilitated tutorials, this feedback will inform the final summative assessment.
