The course builds on the students' pre-existing knowledge of the nursing process, holistic nursing care within the interprofessional health care team and biological and social sciences theory. Students use critical thinking and problem solving to achieve a theoretical understanding of nursing and collaborative care strategies that address clients' needs when faced with an acute physical or mental health challenge. This is a course that relies heavily on concepts and principles of quality care that translate to a variety of practice circumstances. Acute health challenges that have been documented to have the greatest prevalence in Ontario and risk for societal health and wellness, such as Brain Attack or Diabetes, have been selected as the focal points to study these concepts and principles. Primary and secondary prevention associated with acute illness and injury are also discussed each class.
