This module will develop knowledge and understanding in the assessment and management of children and adults presenting with asthma. The importance of history-taking and how to recognise when a patient's condition is becoming unstable will be emphasised. Evidence-based treatments as well as lifestyle, health promotion and concordance will be reviewed in order to promote the best outcomes for the patient with asthma.
You will need to complete an induction prior to commencement of your first module. We have a comprehensive online induction package to welcome you to both the university and your programme of study. Alternatively, classroom-based induction days take place at our Lancaster and Carlisle campuses and are usually scheduled for the first week of each semester.
The running of this module is dependent on there being sufficient numbers of interest.
Studying this module will enhance your confidence and skills in treatment and management of patients with asthma.
Having completed the module, you may wish to bring the credits into the University Advanced Diploma (UAD) Practice Development: Long Term Conditions or the University Advanced Diploma (UAD) Practice Development: Respiratory Care. Please discuss this opportunity with the module leader before completion of this module.
Alternatively, you may wish to use this module towards a degree such as the BSc (Hons) Nursing Practice.
