Summative Assessment
The summative assessment is a 2500-word case-study, associated with the learning outcomes of the module.
For the case study you should select an infection prevention and management related topic which is relevant to your own interest and area of practice. The structure of the assignment should include the following (word counts are for guidance):

• Introduction – identification of the topic and critical discussion of how and why it is relevant to infection prevention and management. This should also discuss how this relates to your own practice/context. Focused practice based question that the case study will address. (250 words)
• Rationale for this choice of question. The importance of the identified issue should be explored from the perspective of different stakeholders and organisations supported by critical discussion of up-to-date statistics, policy and research. Consideration should be given to relevant microbiology, epidemiology, infection prevention, health protection and public health theories, concept and principles. (1000 words)
• Critical discussion of strategies for the current management of the issue and the recent successes or remaining challenges. The critical discussion should again be supported by relevant current statistics, policy and research and/or consideration should be given to relevant microbiology, epidemiology, infection prevention, health protection and public health theories, concept and principles. (1000 words)
• Synthesis of the findings along with recommendations for research, policy and practice that are derived from the discussion in the main body of the case study. (250 words)
