About this course

In this section


Urology remains a rapidly evolving care specialty, both in terms of patient numbers and the increasingly technical treatment intervention modalities employed to assess and treat urological conditions. The purpose of this module is to prepare healthcare professionals to care for patients with urological disorders taking account of the very varying needs presented by them and those close to them. This module has been designed to facilitate students to develop and enhance their knowledge, attitudes, analytical and subject specialist skills to understand and meet the needs of people with urological disorders, acting as cocare planner with the patient. The integration of theory and considerations of practice will be fundamental to the successful completion of the module. Ultimately the module seeks to promote skills which will allow professionals to provide excellent direct care and to acquire high level analytical and planning skills to facilitate the future development of urological care within this rapidly expanding specialty.

This module is available as a standalone module / credit bearing module.
