Medicines legislation does not currently allow Clinical Scientists to prescribe as either supplementary or independent prescribers. However, there are situations where medicines can be given by another professional following the directions of a prescriber referred to as patient specific directions. Provider organisations should have arrangements in place which enable these legal requirements to be implemented. This therapeutics module is included in this HSST curriculum to provide the underpinning knowledge and understanding of a range of therapeutics utilised within Gastrointestinal and Urodynamic Science to support Clinical Scientists in HSST to work with other clinicians and healthcare professionals within the multi professional team.
By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST, in respect to Gastrointestinal and Urodynamic Sciences, will be able to critically analyse, synthesise, evaluate and apply knowledge of appropriate cardiac-specific therapeutic interventions relevant to clinical practice including non-medication-based therapeutic and preventative interventions (e.g. pacemaker programming) within scope of practice of Consultant Clinical Scientist.
By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will critically analyse, synthesise, evaluate and apply their knowledge with respect to the:
Although not undertaking independent prescribing of medications, by the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be expected to critically reflect and apply in practice a range of clinical and communication skills to advise and communicate effectively with relevant clinicians and other healthcare professionals and will, within the multi-professional team:
By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be expected to critically evaluate their own response to both normal and complex situations consistently demonstrating the professional attributes and insights required of a Consultant Clinical Scientist working within the limits of professional competence referring as appropriate to senior staff and will:
