Description

This module aims to explore in detail the principles and practice of adult polytrauma patient care following their primary survey and admission to intensive care.

The course is also offered as a postgraduate (level 7) award.

 

Who is this module for?

This module is suitable for experienced intensive care nurses and other acute healthcare practitioners involved in the care of polytrauma patients within an adult intensive care unit in a trauma hospital or tertiary trauma centre. You should have already completed relevant specialist practice modules e.g.an intensive care course or equivalent.

 

PreRequisites

Applicants are expected to hold a recognised healthcare related qualification with current professional registration (where appropriate to the qualification) and normally a minimum of 6 months post-qualifying experience in order to consolidate training.

In addition:

  • Applicants should hold a qualification which provides 120 credits at level 4, or equivalent, for entry to the diploma programme or a Dip. H. E., (or equivalent), obtained within the last five years, for entry to the degree programme;
  • Applicants for the graduate certificate are normally expected to hold an honours or ordinary degree, or equivalent


Equivalences of overseas qualifications are assessed using a specialist resource (NARIC) to which SGUL subscribes.

Non-standard applicants

Healthcare practitioners who do not hold a Dip H.E. (or equivalent) will normally be considered for standalone level 6 module enrolments if they can demonstrate one of the following:

  • Successful completion within the last five years of either certificated learning at level 6 or above, or completion of more than 60 credits at level 5, or a minimum of 30 credits at level 5 at or above a grade B (60%);
  • Successful completion of a level 6 entrance test.

Applicants who do not meet the standard criteria for entry to the diploma programme, will be assessed on an individual basis and will normally be considered for access to standalone level 5 modules where demonstration of the ability to study at level 5 has been achieved through successful completion of an entrance test.
