This course builds on the concepts learned in previous courses including adult health and pharmacology and expands the knowledge base for planning and implementing care of adults with acute health problems and acute exacerbations of chronic health problems. Clinical case studies of acute care emergencies are used to discuss clinical judgment. Emphasis is placed on the selection of evidence-based interventions, evaluation of interventions, and use of evaluative data in refining a plan of care for the adult patient. Discussions focus on the role of the primary nurse in the acute care setting including collaboration, discharge planning and health teaching.
