There are only two attempts allowed at each component of a module unless extenuating circumstances accepted.  A second fail can therefore lead to termination of your degree programme. There is no compensation between components of the assessment on a module. 

Extensions and Extenuating Circumstances: you must read the policies on these which can be found on the Programme home Page in the Assessment section.  We will not be able to support an appeal based on your lack of awareness of the codes of practice.

  2. Critically apply in-depth pharmacological knowledge to the administration and optimisation of medicines within a field of practice
  3. Discuss how risks to vulnerable individuals are assessed and managed in the planning and co-ordination of complex care across health and/or social care organisational boundaries
  4. Critically evaluate legal, political and economic factors and the role of family and public engagement in the effective coordination of complex care

Presentation Guidance

The PowerPoint presentation contributes 50% of your final grade for this module.

Produce and deliver a 15-minute Audio recorded PowerPoint presentation on one pharmacological intervention for one case study linked to the taught components of the module.

The presentation must include the following elements:

  • The pharmacodynamics relating to the chosen medication.
  • The key evidence-base for intervention. 
  • Roles and responsibilities in its prescription, administration and monitoring.
  • The Royal Pharmaceutical Society framework, Maudsley Guidelines or EMC/SPC guidelines for safe prescribing should be used.

Adult Field:

  • You need to include the physiology relating to the intervention.
  • You must briefly explain the pathophysiology that has necessitated the pharmacological intervention before examining the pharmacodynamics underpinning the modes of action of the selected medication. Do not just present a general overview of the condition.
  • You should allow approximately 5 minutes for this section of the assessment
  • You should allow the remaining 10 minutes for the next two sections of the assessment

Mental Health Field:

  • The relationship between physiology and mental illness is unclear and contested. 
  • You should briefly explain what is known (or not known) about the pharmacodynamics of the chosen medication. 
  • Alternatively, you can explain the physiological/psychiatric impact of treatment options such as NG tube feeding if you choose to write about eating disorders.

Adult and Mental Health Fields:

You are asked to present the key evidence-base for the intervention:

You must present an interpretation and evaluation of a key clinical trial (or meta-analysis/ systematic review) that supports the use of the medication/treatment in practice.

This should be linked to a published clinical guideline (NICE, ESC etc.).

You should also include an evaluation of the way the trial and guideline has affected the treatment of your chosen condition i.e., was there a change in clinical practice? 

NOTE: You must evaluate the trial and guidelines rather than merely describing them. 

The role and responsibilities of the Nurse in the intervention:

This section should consider any significant side effects, adverse events, contraindications, or drug interactions associated with the chosen medication. Merely listing the items identified above will not be sufficient; you should provide rationales for any issues or aspects of care you highlight reflecting a holistic approach. Discuss the co-ordination of evidence based and person centred nursing care and decision making when caring for people with complex safeguarding or enduring or end of life care needs within the field of nursing practice.

An understanding of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society framework (2021) for safe prescribing is essential for adult field students. 

Mental Health nursing students will need to refer to Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines, SPC/EMC guidelines or a similar resource.

The assessment is a presentation; the PowerPoint is an aid for your presentation rather than the assessment itself

  • Your PowerPoint presentation must not contain more than 10 slides in total, including a title slide and references slide.
  • The length of your presentation must not exceed 15 minutes.
  • There must be a title and a reference slide, and your presentation will benefit from a brief introduction and conclusion.
  • Graphics should be a key element of the presentation and should reinforce the text. 
  • Your presentation must be fully referenced (including pictures) on each slide using the Harvard system
  • If you intend to refer to numerical data in your presentation the use of tables, graphs etc is strongly recommended
  • Do not read directly from the slides or your notes - use them as prompts for your presentation. The slides can be used to display diagrams that explain the pathophysiology, data such as the results of clinical trials etc.  Please make sure your narration relates to the information on each slide. 

Plagiarism - Assessments submitted must be the student’s own work and all references to other work must be acknowledged. Penalties for plagiarism are severe.
