Course Overview

In this Ausmed Education mandatory module, explore the topic of what constitutes a duty, focusing on how this duty may be breached and the resulting consequences. The expectation is that you will develop a clear understanding of your legal and professional accountabilities as you fulfil your responsibility in the provision of patient care. You will also review what standards of care are reasonably expected by healthcare providers and what consequences may occur should these standards not be met.

Learning Outcomes
  • Be clear about the extent of your duty of care.
  • Understand the reasonable standard of practice expectation in your health setting.
  • Recognise the consequences of not providing sufficient duty of care.
Target Audience

Nurses and all staff who work in healthcare.

Validation of learning:

  • Evidence that you have read relevant legislation and standards relating to your work.
  • Evidence you have reviewed the policies and procedures in your workplace.
  • A written summary of a journal article or book chapter you have recently read relating to your duty of care.

This resource was well set out, testing memory recall throughout. It was broken into short well paced sections. This made note taking and concentrating easier.
