Faculty of Health Sciences Numeracy in Health and Social Care Practice Continuing Professional Development Individual module Level of study Please select a level How to apply What you'll study Designed for health and social care practitioners and carers, this module will give you an insight into numeracy in the health and social care setting. It is widely accepted that there is a need for health care providers and carers to be numerate to ensure safety of patients, clients and loved ones. It has been well documented that calculation errors have played a part in medication errors and patient harm. With this in mind, this module prepares those working, or those interested in working in the health care environment for simple and more complex calculations. The Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC) require as a minimum, English and Maths GCSE or equivalent qualification for entry onto the nursing programmes. In the future, Functional Skills Maths Level 2 will not be supported to gain access to the nursing programme, and therefore this module will complete the NMC requirements to pre-registration nursing.
