Overall aims and purpose

Within this module you will develop the skills to appraise the research and evidence underpinning CYP nursing practice and the knowledge required to support the decision making process underpinning the nursing care of CYP. As a student you will work in a variety of environments to develop knowledge and skills to be able to provide support for families in meeting healthcare needs that may persist throughout childhood and into adulthood and may be complex, life-limiting and/or life-threatening. You will have an introduction to neonatal nursing, explore the issues facing young people with long term conditions during their transition to adult healthcare and debate the needs of children and young people with emotional and /or mental health issues. As a developing CYP nurse you will demonstrate personal knowledge of the process of reflection and discuss how this influences your nursing practice
