These concepts will serve as a foundation for building the necessary skills to meet program outcomes including clinical judgment, facilitator of learning, advocacy, caring practices, collaboration, systems thinking, response to diversity, and clinical inquiry. Students will apply theoretical content and therapeutic interventions to patients with common health alterations in the clinical component of the course, which will focus on patients with low complexity diseases (i.e. stable, predictable illnesses).
