Children and Young People's History Taking and Physical Assessment - Level 6 - AC6711

**In the interests of health and safety of students, staff and our partners, the University Executive has taken the decision that all classroom-based teaching and learning activity will be replaced by online programme delivery. As you will undoubtedly be aware, many other universities are taking a similar approach. This does depend on individual online capability and nature of the sessions. Given the practical nature of this module and the ongoing uncertainty regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have taken the difficult decision to postpone this module. We will release dates for the postponed delivery in the coming months. We thank you for your patience at this uncertain time.

This module is commissioned by Health Education England as part of its continuing workforce development (CWD) portfolio. If you are interested in participating, please complete the application form and gain authorisation from your Line Manager and your Trust Training Coordinator.
