Students entering healthcare environments need to have adequate knowledge and skills that can mitigate risk associated with patient care and broader health care issues. High-risk concepts, as identified by the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards, are revisited and applied to practice in high risk environment.
As per the BNSG Program Rules, students are required to attempt and submit all assessment items in a course. This program rule forms part of the USQ accreditation agreement with the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Council [ANMAC].
Students will explore safety and quality principles and standards with particular focus on integrated risk management, corporate and clinical governance, root cause analysis, and evidence-based applications as they relate to positive patient care outcomes. In addition, students will learn and apply legislative and professional standards as they relate to inter-professional practice. Students will further develop critical thinking/reasoning and decision-making skills to apply principles of quality, safety and risk to their practice and patient care.
This course contains a mandatory residential school.
