Results of learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding

  • physiological and pathological processes related to neurological diseases
  • clinical methodology that guides an effective approach in assisting
  • operational techniques of intervention
  • evidence that guide decision-making

Applying knowledge and understanding

  • conduct a comprehensive and systematic assessment of care needs of the individual;
  • use valuation techniques to collect data accurately on the major health problems of the clients;
  • analyze and interpret the data collected by the assisted assessment accurately;
  • assess the progress of treatment in collaboration with the interdisciplinary team;

Making judgments

  • take care decisions with the interdisciplinary team;
  • deciding priorities of patient groups with the interdisciplinary team;
  • decide of care and personalized interventions with the interdisciplinary team based on clinical variables, psychosocial and cultural critically evaluate the outcomes of health care decisions made on the basis of the outcomes of the patient and the care standards;
  • make decisions through a scientific approach to the patient's problem solving with the interdisciplinary team;

In a context of digital interest  the course will discuss the following topics:

  • Epidemiology, pathophysiology and clinical pathology at increased diffusion in the neurological diseases
  • Anatomical and neurophysiological Nervous System
  • Elements of semiotics neurological (motor abnormalities, sensory disturbances, speech disorders, other neuro cognitive disorders, cranial nerve disorders, disorders of vigilance and consciousness disorders of the autonomic nervous system)
