all courses of Ba1 and the courses of Ba2 where medical-technical skills or communication skills are learned
2. Objectives (expected learning outcomes)
In the manual a level of expertness is mentioned for each skill. Most of the skills reach a level 4 (‘able to perform these skills on a routine basis’). Of course this is not yet applicable for the students of BA2 since performing skills at the level of a routine expert is required at the end of the medical education.
Study aim 1. You are able to perform a clinical skills investigation of the locomotory system, the heart and blood vessels and the lungs as they were practised during the skills training and described in the manual.
Study aim 2. You are able to show that you know the structure of history taking and you are able to perform an intake and anamnesis conform the quality characteristics teached.
Study aim 3. You are able to show that you can actively build a doctor-patient relationship and be fully aware of the relationship according to the quality characteristics teached.
Study aim 4. You are able to write down a personal reflection on your experiences with these clinical examinations as part of your portfolio according to the portfolio-instructions.
Study aim 5. You are able to write down personal reflections on your learning experiences within the communication skill training sessions according to the portfolio-instructions.
Study aim 6. You are able to construct a personal development plan (PDP) on the learned medical and technical skills and communication skills practised during the nursing internship in Ba1 according to the portfolio-instructions.
Study aim 7. You are able to report the findings of a clinical examination in a portfolio-task according to the portfolio-instructions.
3. Course content
The communication skills (6 x 3h) are a sequel of the previous year: out of comprehensions of ‘active listening’ the way of history taking is introduced and practiced with intake and anamnesis emphasising a medical interview with all his aspects. Secondly, students are trained in building a doctor-patient relationship. Students will have the opportunity to practise with simulated patients and to record a conversation with a hospitalized patient. The content of the medical-technical skills training sessions (5 x 3u) include the clinical investigation of the locomotory system (spinal column, inferior limbs, upper limbs), the heart and peripheral blood vessels and the lungs.
