Within emergency care and the rural and remote context, advanced nursing skills are essential to ensure optimum outcomes for the client. These skills ensure that appropriate assessment, triage, intervention and referral for continuity of care occur in the absence of support services. This course is designed to embed advanced nursing practice knowledge to promote critical thinking and decision making for autonomous and accountable practice, within such isolated contexts.

This course aims to improve advanced clinical decision making in caring for patients who are acutely ill / injured with the potential to develop critical illness, in an emergency care setting and in rural and remote nursing practice.

Students will critique and apply recent national and professional strategies to recognise deterioration and support those in need of critical/ emergency care in the emergency department, rural and remote settings. Students will explore and analyse evidence based strategies, legal frameworks, accountability; investigate advanced pharmacological concepts in the assessment and management of emergency care patients.

The specific clinical assessment required for the management of the critically ill / injured adult and paediatric delivered in emergency care environment will be addressed through work based learning within the collaborative practice framework.
