Assessment

Formative assessment
Students will be given opportunities through reflection on practice, group discussion forum and with feedback throughout the module, to discuss ideas related to their specific area of cardiac care.

Summative assessment

  • Written assignment, 3000 words (Component A).

At level 3, students are expected to evaluate current research evidence and apply this to the delivery of evidence based cardiac care. This should include an exploration of literature and discuss the current issues in a chosen area of cardiac care. The assignment will enable students to produce a paper that addresses contemporary issues in cardiac care and considers the journey from assessment through to management.

At level M, students are expected to critically evaluate, synthesise and provide independent perspectives regarding the delivery of evidence based cardiac care. This should include a critical exploration of literature and debate the current issues in a chosen area of cardiac care. The assignment will enable students to follow relevant publication guidance to produce a paper that addresses contemporary issues and developments in cardiac care.
