It is intended that the module will focus on moving this knowledge and these skills to the point where you will be able to incorporate physical health assessment as part of your everyday role and/or experience.

Module overview

This module broadly focuses on developing and enhancing your ability to recognise and assess people’s physical health.  The understanding of complex needs will be explored and health promotion strategies to meet these complexities will be considered. You will review the evidence base of these issues and consider all aspects in relation to service users. The relevance, strengths, weaknesses and ethical issues raised by a range of topics will be used to develop and enhance your understanding and critical analysis.
