For the student, the emphasis is on skills development and assessment in preparation for the role of registered health professional. Our Essential and Advanced Skills modules combine to support the development and assessment of the key competencies required for safe medication dosage calculation at the point of registration/licensure. Three key learning environments sit at the heart of this process whilst the associated assessment tools provide a structured and comprehensive platform for measuring the cognitive competencies required for safe medication administration at the point of registration and beyond.

For the registered practitioner, the emphasis at Entry Point 1 is on the audit of existing foundation level dosage calculation skills using the Authentic Assessment module of our Essential Skills suite. If practitioners commit no error then no further action is needed. Where skill deficits are identified, a detailed analysis of performance is made using our Authentic Diagnostic Assessment system with subsequent remediation and skill construction facilitated within the learning environment.

At Entry Point 2, our Pediatric Authentic Diagnostic Assessment module focuses on the audit of intermediate level skills associated with pediatric weight based problems. If practitioners commit no error then no further action is needed. Where skill deficits are identified, skill construction is facilitated within the Pediatric learning environment.

At Entry Point 3, our Advanced Skills modules address skills development and assessment in the domain of Injectable Medicines Therapy. Here the focus is on the more complex problem solving, calculation and technical measurement skills required for working safely with IV bolus, intermittent and continuous IV infusion regimes.
