Course Overview

This highly interactive Course takes you through a real-life case study. It requires you, the Clinical Detective, to consider why certain diagnostic tests, observations and procedures are undertaken. As you move through the case study, you’ll be able to confirm or eliminate potential clinical problems.

Topics:

  • What are the red flags in your assessment findings?
  • Why are certain diagnostic tests ordered?
  • Which diagnoses can be ruled out?
  • How are clinical conditions treated?
  • What does this mean for the patient?

Target audience:

This Course is designed for nurses, midwives and other health professionals working in primary healthcare, community and acute settings.

Purpose:

The purpose of this Course is to enhance your critical thinking, assessment and problem-solving skills by working through a case study in order to identify and act on a common clinical condition.

Need:

We use critical thinking skills and professional judgment on a daily basis in our practice. It is important that we continue to revise and strengthen these skills to ensure that we are able to recognise deteriorating patients and changes to conditions in a timely manner.

Learning Outcomes

  • Correlate clinical assessment findings with appropriate and timely interventions to improve patient outcomes.
  • Strengthened professional judgment may lead to earlier detection of signs and symptoms of deterioration and decrease the burden of illness.
  • Knowledge of appropriate diagnostic tests and procedures may decrease the potential for over-servicing and unnecessary interventions.
