Course Overview

This module aims to equip practitioners with the skills and knowledge to undertake a comprehensive assessment of children and adolescents with a mental health problem and plan care accordingly. The module is designed to augment and enhance existing assessment skills along with the ability to apply the findings from a comprehensive assessment of a child or adolescents mental state to inform a plan of care.

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.
