Routine Tests Part 1
Routine tests and monitoring are a key part of the day to day work of practice nurses and intrinsic to the management of long term conditions, health screening and promotion and the management of minor illnesses and injuries. It is therefore important that nurses maintain their practical and clinical skills to the highest standards.1
The following five MCQs will focus on Body Mass Index, weight measurement, height measurement, waist circumference measurement and random blood glucose testing, and address key issues supporting best practice.
This resource, consisting of five assessment questions at basic level, tests your understanding of the procedures and processes of routine tests. Complete the resource, including reading the featured articles and undertaking some or all of the activities, to obtain a certificate for one hour of continuing professional development to include in your annual portfolio.
