You’ll develop knowledge and understanding of the assessment, diagnosis and management of people presenting with minor injuries. This will provide healthcare professionals with a solid theoretical foundation to inform future practice. Whilst the module does include examination techniques, it is not possible to assess the application of this knowledge within the students own clinical setting. As with all aspects of clinical practice, this would need to be agreed with the student’s employer, in line with regulatory body guidance and other national and local guidelines.

In this module we will cover:

  • Clinical history taking examination and documentation

  • Anatomy and physiology relevant to minor injuries

  • Musculoskeletal examination

  • Assessment of neurological function related to the limbs

  • Assessment and management of common minor injury presentations eg:  minor wounds, burns, minor head injuries, soft tissue injuries, eye injuries

  • Analgesia relevant to minor injuries.

Please note: *Prices correct for 2019/20 new students. Subject to potential annual increase in September 2020
