There are eight online modules required to be completed along with activities to provide practical application of medicine management concepts and principles, including clinical scenarios, personal reflection, online tutorials, and multiple choice quizzes. Recommended resources, references and clinical guidelines will be referred to throughout the modules, and web links to these will be made available.
An interactive online case study will assess clinical reasoning and decision making processes following completion of all modules. Participants will be presented with a clinical scenario that they must manage appropriately from available options. The case study will be graded successful/unsuccessful and must be completed successfully to complete the course.
The course provides participants with knowledge regarding pharmacotherapeutics in Remote Area Nursing (RAN) practice, the development of sound clinical reasoning for drug therapies and best practice in a remote setting. It spans principles of pharmacotherapeutics, pharmacokinetics and pharmacology.
