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. This module is for practitioners working within adult intensive care areas. It will enable the student to manage complex patients conditions appropriately.

When taken in conjunction with the Intensive Care Patient Assessment 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. Practitioners should be working within an intensive care unit, able to participate in the planning and delivery of care to complex intensive care patients in clinical practice and be able to complete all practice competencies within their own clinical areas.
