Description

This module is a core compulsory module for the Intensive Care pathway. It is also an option module within the MSc Healthcare Practice programme and may be taken as a free standing module. The module is for practitioners working within intensive care areas or caring for the critically ill adult patient outside traditional boundaries (for example overnight recovery areas). It will enable the student to assess and interpret the adult patient's ongoing condition accurately.

When taken in conjunction with the Intensive Care Patient Management module, this module meets the requirements for the Step two and Step three competencies which are incorporated in the National Standards for Adult Critical Care Nurse Education (2016)

 

Who is this module for?

Registered healthcare practitioners normally with one year's post-qualifying practice experience, with opportunity to assess adult intensive care patients. Practitioners should be familiar with a wide range of assessment and monitoring approaches used with adult intensive care patients.

Assessment

Usual assessment: Unseen exam and Competency Assessment Document

NOTE - TEMPORARY ASSESSMENT CHANGE: Due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, this module has a modified assessment in place: Online Essay Questions and Competency Assessment Document. The modified assessment will apply to module runs starting from September 2020 and will remain in place until social distancing requirements can be sufficiently relaxed to allow on-site, face-to-face assessment. At the time of writing, it is not known when this will be.

Learning Outcomes
  1. Demonstrate critical awareness of the specialist knowledge, skills and approaches required to provide a comprehensive assessment of the adult intensive care patient.
  2. Appraise the pathophysiological changes associated with a range of conditions related to critical illness.
  3. Scrutinise and reflect on complex assessment data (using relevant comparisons for age, sex, co-morbidities, normal values and underlying pathophysiology).
  4. Critically evaluate the clinical significance and implications of assessment data for the patient.
  5. Appraise data obtained from the use of technology and how this informs intensive care patient management.
  6. Review sources of information from a range of perspectives (including information technology) and justify its impact on the assessment process.
  7. Contextualise and appraise the relevance of invasive and non-invasive monitoring approaches.
