The overall course objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. Utilize evidence-based theory and research to treat adult-gerontological patients experiencing acute illnesses.
  2. Synthesize data from a variety of health resources to treat adult-gerontological patients.
  3. Analyze common acute care problems to develop prioritized differential diagnoses, make clinical judgments, and recommend appropriate treatments for adult-gerontological patients with acute illnesses.
  4. Demonstrate clinical decision-making skills in advanced health assessment, clinical diagnosis, procedural skill acquisition, and care management of acute and chronically ill adult-gerontological patients.
  5. Explain the physiological and psychosocial impact of acute and critical illness on patients, family, and the community.

 This course focuses on evidence-based theory and research related to adult-gerontological patients experiencing acute illnesses with comorbidities. Learners synthesize data from a variety of health resources related to the care of the adult-gerontological patient. Learners analyze common problems seen in the acute care setting to develop prioritized differential diagnoses, make clinical judgments, and recommend appropriate treatments for acute alterations in health with particular emphasis on restorative care. Clinical practice affords learners the opportunity to refine their clinical decision-making skills in advanced health assessment, clinical diagnosis, procedural skill acquisition, and care management of acute and chronically ill adult-gerontological patients. Practicum experiences emphasize the physiological and psychosocial impact of acute and critical illness on patients, family, and community
