Course Overview

This course will provide health practitioners with the necessary skills and knowledge to competently request, holistically assess, interpret and report plain adult chest X-rays and triage cases to involve the wider multidisciplinary team. Module content will include the identification of normal and abnormal pathology and will facilitate the student with the skills to accurately and succinctly report their findings and make recommendations where appropriate for management in both outpatient and acute clinical settings. Practitioners will understand the importance of working within a robust clinical governance framework.

Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
