Blended learning IBD module available now

Published: 08 October 2013

The University of Salford, Manchester has launched an innovative Level 6 IBD module for autumn 2013. Based on a blended learning approach that focuses on e-learning, it allows students to access the module at their own convenience while an introductory day and final assessment will be held at the university.

The module is designed to develop the advanced knowledge, understanding and skills to professionally care for a patient with IBD. It is aimed at practising IBD nurses and nurses wishing to move into a more specialist nursing role as well as ward nurses who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of IBD.

The composition of the module is as follows:
• unit  one: ‘an introduction to inflammatory bowel disease’
• unit two: ‘assessment of a patient with inflammatory bowel disease’
• unit three: ‘treating inflammatory bowel disease’
• unit four: ‘approaches to education and counselling’.

The module has been developed and will be led by two practitioners: Veronica Hall, a nurse consultant at Royal Bolton Hospital, and Catherine Stansfield, an advanced practitioner at Salford Royal Hospital.
