By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to critically analyse and synthesise their understanding of neurophysiological measurement applying their knowledge whilst performing a range of technical procedures and clinical skills and demonstrating the ability to evaluate their own response to both normal and complex situations using the professional attributes and insights required of a Consultant Clinical Scientist. This module will enable Clinical Scientists in HSST to develop a broader perspective on the investigation and management of patients referred to their service and practical skills to conduct neurophysiological measurements relevant to GI and urodynamic practice.
By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to critically analyse, synthesise and apply their knowledge with respect to a range of neurophysiological measurement investigations including:
The principles of physiological measurements in common use for neurophysiology:
The clinical scientific practices associated with performance of these measurements including:
Students’ written evaluations of their practice should demonstrate new insights into the application of current theories of the role of neurophysiological measurements in the diagnosis of diseases affecting the gastrointestinal and urological systems.
By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to demonstrate a critical understanding of current research and its application to the performance of the following technical skills to ensure the quality delivery of investigations appropriate to their specialist interest, including:
Reflect on the challenges of applying research to practice in relation to these procedures and suggest improvements, building on available evidence.By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to demonstrate a critical understanding of current relevant research, theory and knowledge and its application to the performance of clinical skills, applying rigorous scientific critiques to the evaluation of data related to clinical practice in the support of clinical decision making and patient management and critically reflect on their performance and be competent in:
develop treatment plans in context with patient investigations and:
Clinical Scientists in HSST will be required, in partnership with the clinical team, to identify areas of current practice that could be improved and design and evaluate a suitable intervention based on a critical review of evidence to improve practice.
By the end of the module the Clinical Scientist in HSST Neurophysiological Measurement will be expected to evaluate their own response to both normal and complex situations consistently demonstrating the professional attributes and insights required of a Consultant Clinical Scientist. Within the limits of professional competence referring as appropriate to senior staff and:
