Assessment

Summative Assessment
Assignment on effectiveness of treatment:
Writing an essay demonstrating knowledge and understanding of a specific area of treatment/intervention to a person living with COPD (3,000 words).

The essay should include the pathophysiology of COPD and how effective the treatment/intervention is in order to meet the person's healthcare needs. Your essay should clearly demonstrate understanding of the role of the practitioners in enhancing future practice.

At level 3, you are expected to critically analyse, evaluate and synthesise the treatment/intervention. This should include some appreciation of how evidence based practice influences the delivery and management of COPD services.

At Masters level you are expected to critically evaluate, synthesise and provide independent perspectives regarding the delivery of treatment/intervention and management. This should include a critical exploration of literature and debate the wider socio-political implications of COPD.
