Learning outcomes

The course includes four discipline modules: Clinical Pharmacology, Nursing, Dietary Sciences, Diagnostic Imaging and Radioprotection, which are integrated to allow the achievement of the objective of a deep theoretical and practical knowledge of the main diagnostic and therapeutic processes that characterize, in general, nursing care. This course is based on the principles of safety and effectiveness of care to achieve health outcomes or a state of balance of the patient and to evaluate the progress of care in collaboration with the multidisciplinary team. The approach considers the methods of application of the prescribed diagnostic and therapeutic processes as well as the strategies for monitoring the effects.
