MED/45 - NURSING
1° e 2° semestre (corsi annuali) PROFESSIONI SANITARIE dal Oct 1, 2021 al Sep 30, 2022.
The course aims to provide the student with technical-practical, relational, problem-solving and organizational skills in safe setting, before clinical practice in clinical environment with patients, in order to reduce the emotional impact that comes from real situations and guarantee ethicality and safety to patients. For these reasons this course represents a prerequisite for the clinical practice. It also offers to student the opportunity to train himself in applying the theoretical principles to practice situations. The main skills of the first year of the Bachelor Degree are: measuring vital parameters, hand hygiene, choice and use of personal protective equipment (PPE), setting up a sterile field, staging and treatment of a pressure injury , take care of the person's body, apply the principles of ergonomics, carry out the person's positioning / transfer and assisted positioning maneuvers, assessment skills and objective examination.
Teaching involves the following skill-tested experimentation:
Measurement of vital parameters
There will be a peer experimentation of the measurement and first interpretation of the vital parameters (Arterial pressure, pulse, respiration rate, saturation, body temperature).
Simulated situations where the trainees are expected to experience:
peer-assisted mobility facilitation when slight mobility deficits are involved (i.e. mobilization in bed, bed-armchair, wheelchair-bed),
selection and use of some tools to ease mobilization (i.e. high roller, hoist, etc.),
technique performance, respecting the ergonomic and safety principles both for the patient and the operator.
Clinical case analysis: (connections with the physiology and pathophysiology)
There will be a clinical case and during the laboratory there will be a time of:
analysis in small groups, guided by questions of in-depth, of the theoretical contents needed to understand and interpret the data / manifestations of the situation,
plenary discussion, led by an expert.
Case histories: simulated data collection
- Will be shown a video to the student and then, in groups, they will have to highlight sources, methods, organization of the survey.
- Role playing
Hand hygiene, choice and use of DPI and preparation of a sterile field
There will be settings / scenarios where the student can practice several times in:
- selection of appropriate protection devices and execution of hand hygiene
- preparation of the material to set up a sterile field and wear sterile gloves in compliance with the principles of sterility.
Assess the stage of a Ulcer Pressure and applying treatment selection criteria
Analysis of situations in small groups, guided by questions, of the theoretical contents necessary to understand the patient's situation, staging the ulcer pressure and propose the appropriate treatment;
discussion in plenary, led by an expert.
Use sources of information for bibliographic research
Experimentation in research and consultation of scientific journals, guidelines..

At the end of the course year, students will get the "approved" mark in their examination report, if they have attended the labs regularly (100%) and their attendance is certified. Otherwise, they will have to catch up for their absence or if any remedial work is needed.
