Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
Given the curriculum to achieve the objectives the student must:
• Understand the objectives, concepts and criteria used in defining the Hospital Referral Network Emergency Department;
• Collect the objective and subjective data for each patient by routine, urgent, or emergent;
• Acquire knowledge of basic life support algorithm and Advanced Life;

Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Interrogative, expository and demonstrative.
Oral presentation of course content.
Active / participatory methodology, supported by audiovisual media.
Bibliographical research work with teaching support.
Continuous assessment of this course will be expressed by a grade on a numerical scale of 0 to 20 and is calculated by the following formula: provides for the completion of two written exercises. These written tests may consist of multiple choice questions, true / false, matching, captions, and short answer, listed on all 20 points and with a duration of 1.30 hours.
Final Grade = 90% of the two written tests urgent / emergency, plus 10% interest and individual participation, attendance, punctuality and attitude.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The need to analyze and reflect on new concepts involves the use of expository and interrogative methods. And the demonstration procedures enables the acquisition of the techniques essential to the practice of care. The simulation of theoretical and practical cases and the application of the nursing process allows you to consolidate skills for using the Nursing Process as a scientific methodology of work.
