Course summary

This module will enable students to gain an understanding of how cancer and its treatment can lead to the acute deterioration of the patient. The module utilises a variety of case scenarios and high fidelity simulation with supporting theory to enhance and develop students' existing knowledge to assess, prevent and manage the rapidly changing or emergency situation.

I’m more confident when I’m looking after patients because now I understand how cancer and its treatment can lead to the patient becoming acutely ill. The module team were very supportive and always there for advice.
