This online Adult Nursing Diploma course provides an overview of the skills and techniques required in areas such as advanced patient hygiene procedures, environmental health and safety awareness for the Practice Nurse, and how to ensure patient safety and comfort in the adult care setting. Advanced principles of hygiene provide the learner with an overview of the functions, methods, and techniques applied in providing adult patient care with particular emphasis on the daily bath, oral hygiene and the benefits of a back massage in patient comfort. Essential patient personal care routines are also discussed. Environmental health outlines the necessary health and safety procedures relating to patient care and the safe operational use of electrical equipment. Patient care safety measures introduce the learner to techniques that help prevent falls and protect patients who are at risk from injury, burns or scalds, together with steps to prevent the spread of micro-organisms in the care environment.

    Highly recommend !

    Fantastic course, whether new to healthcare or existing wishing to further your qualifications and career.

    very easy to understand and takes you right through the basics to more medical terms and examples easily. Love the videos which are the best way to learn in my opinion, as can re-watch if necessary and can learn literally anywhere!

    A lot of work has clearly gone into this course & it shows every step of the way of its journey.

    Highly recommend. It says at the beginning that theres an additional cost and with the certificate only being an extra 14 in total its a bargain!

    Brilliant thanks!
