Professional Laboratories (1st year)
Scientific Disciplinary Sector (SSD)
MED/48 - NURSING IN NEUROPSYCHIATRY AND REHABILITATION
TERP 1A1S, TERP 1A2S - 1 periodo
The professionalizing laboratories are essential learning experiences that anticipate the clinical training; offer students the opportunity to experiment in applying the acquired knowledge and theoretical principles, in a safe and controlled environment. The goal is to allow the student to experiment in virtual care settings, without putting the safety of real patients at risk. They aim to develop both practical skills (through simulations in plausible clinical settings, with the use of simulators) and other transversal skills (care, relational, communication, problem solving, critical thinking). They are carried out in small groups throughout the academic year (I - II semester), under the guidance of tutors. In particular, the first year's laboratory aims to provide students with the methodological tools for relating to psychiatric users in a protected and controlled environment, so as to allow them to subsequently apply the skills learned in the laboratory and in real contexts
During the Professional Workshop topics will be communication and observation, relation between health workers and patients in Mental Health Department and the interview with patients through practical training.
