NS 840 - Primary Care of Children and Adolescent

This course builds on the previous two courses to focus on the management of basic health care of individuals from birth through adolescence (including young adults). The course integrates the concepts of primary health care promotion and maintenance, disease prevention, differentiation of clinical patterns, and clinical decision making. The concept of caring and its role in evidence-based practice will be woven throughout the course. The course will also examine the use of informatics, how it relates to learning, and how it is used to manage and negotiate health care delivery systems when part of the interdisciplinary health care team. The learner will gain experience planning and evaluating care relative to the pediatric client.
