This module has two parts, firstly you will develop your therapeutic dialogue skills to support and reinforce the principles of evidence-based practice to underpin the selection and appropriate use of assessment, treatment and evaluation skills relevant to a range of physical and psycho-social conditions. Secondly, it will introduce you to a range of design and intervention strategies that enable creative problem-solving approaches in the management of these conditions. It will enable you to develop solutions and intervention programmes based on sound clinical and ethical reasoning that recognise the implications (including environmental, emotional and psychosocial) of living with a range of life-limiting conditions across the lifespan.
Your awareness and understanding of the legislation, standards and guidelines that drive the delivery of health and social care will be reinforced, as will your understanding of the need for insight into the limitations of their own knowledge, understanding and competencies. You will increasingly take responsibility for your own learning and the potential of reflective practice in identifying personal development needs, particularly in relation to the assessment and treatment of ill-health and social challenges.
Throughout the module you will have the opportunity to work with local charities, third sector and voluntary organisations to bring together your knowledge of the person, their environment and their desired occupations.
