Learning outcomes

This teaching is based on the principles of safety and efficacy of care to achieve health outcomes or a compensated state of care and to evaluate the progress of care in collaboration with the multidisciplinary team. The approach considers the application methods of the prescribed diagnostic and therapeutic processes as well as the effects surveillance strategies. DIAGNOSTIC FORM FOR IMAGES AND RADIOPROTECTION: Conferring notions on the principles of image formation in diagnostic imaging, on radiation protection, on how to prepare and carry out investigations.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY: The aim of the module is to provide the student with notions of clinical pharmacology necessary for the profession of nurse, useful in the control and management of drug therapies, with particular reference to the recognition and prevention of the most important adverse events for each category of drugs studied.
