Course summary

About the course

Minor injury assessment and management skills are needed more and more by nurses and allied-health professionals in a variety of areas including general practice, urgent care, emergency departments and pre-hospital care. This course provides an opportunity for you to develop knowledge and skills in relation to assessment, diagnosis and management of undifferentiated and undiagnosed minor injuries, as well as generate differential diagnoses in addition to making informed collaborative decisions about the management of a patient’s presentation.

  • You will be taught by qualified nurse practitioners who have a wealth of skills, expertise and professional credibility specialising in minor injuries.
  • The course is split into theory and practical sessions for each body system. Lectures will focus on the evidence base behind minor injuries assessment and management, whilst practical sessions will focus on the skill of physical examination and history taking.
  • Case studies will be used in order to develop critical thinking which is an essential component for all practitioners.
  • You will create a portfolio of evidence which will assist you in developing clinical competency in minor injuries and could also be used to show evidence of training to future employers.
  • You will undertake three weeks of clinical practice within a minor injury setting which will be included in your practice portfolio.

This course is designed to help you take on the role of assessment and management of minor injuries within your own clinical setting.
