ADVANCED ASSESSMENT & CLINICAL REASONING - 2022/3
Module code: NURM186
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic the University has revised its courses to incorporate the ‘Hybrid Learning Experience’ in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information. The University has changed the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes. Further information on the general principles of hybrid learning can be found at: Hybrid learning experience | University of Surrey.
We have updated key module information regarding the pattern of assessment and overall student workload to inform student module choices. We are currently working on bringing remaining published information up to date to reflect current practice during the academic year 2021/22.
This means that some information within the programme and module catalogue will be subject to change. Current students are invited to contact their Programme Leader or Academic Hive with any questions relating to the information available.
This module will explore advanced practice within the context of clinical decision making and reasoning based upon the comprehensive physical, social and psychological assessment of the patient / client to inform care decisions

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to reflect the programme and School's learning and teaching strategy to create dynamic, effective and caring health professionals. It will facilitate this through the use of blended learning and increasingly e-learning. The aim is that this module will be offered in 2 formats, either as a blended learning module or as a full e-learning experience, to meet the individual learning needs of students.
The learning and teaching methods include:
• Lectures (including e-leactures)
• guided study
• Practical workshops
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
