Description

Have you ever experienced the feeling of bewilderment as people talk about diseases and the effect they have on their body functions BUT you have no idea where or what it is, OR the doctor is discussing your own problems and you feel you should know what they are talking about? After all it is your body. This learning guide is an introduction to medical terminology designed to assist you in your work in the health care setting. In this work you may be faced with unfamiliar and sometimes complex medical terms and abbreviations. It is not unusual to feel overwhelmed by this new vocabulary but it is possible to master the jargon!

A Revision of Basic Arithmetic (Health HLT07)

This course has different expectations from the Certificate IV that you may have already completed, and many Enrolled Nurses may not yet have had an opportunity to either study or practice medication administration. To be proficient at medication administration, it is necessary to have a good understanding of basic arithmetic and the metric system. Arithmetic underpins the practice of medication administration. The purpose of this package is to enable Enrolled Nurses converting a Certificate IV or its equivalent to the Diploma of Nursing or students just beginning the nursing program to revise basic arithmetic skills to enable them to complete the nursing calculation component of the unit.
