  • NURS433/PSME439 Intellectual Disability: Theory into Practice

    The aim of this Interprofessional paper is to develop your knowledge base, practical and clinical skills as a practitioner working in this specialist field, and in working alongside people with intellectual (learning) disability. The content is underpinned by evidenced-based practice and current philosophy grounded on changing models of disability. Links are made between physical and mental well-being, sociological, pharmacological, behavioural, interprofessional and ethical approaches across the lifespan. 

    You could be eligible to undertake this Level 8 paper if you hold a professional health/education qualification and/or undergraduate degree and are a professional working in the health and/or disability sector.

    Nurses must hold registration from a three-year programme or course, congruent with the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance (HPCA) Act (2003). The paper is able to be included in the suite of papers for a number of PGDiplomas and it can also be taken as a standalone paper – COP, Certificate of Proficiency and brought into a PG qualification at a later date.
