Course Overview

This course is designed to provide a competency-based approach to the development of the critical care practitioners of the future. By recognising existing knowledge, skills, and abilities whilst promoting enquiry and critical analysis of evidence, we aim to create graduates who can critically analyse data, utilise problem-solving skills in care settings, and confidently articulate opinions.

The course offers the opportunity to apply theory to practice, improving the quality of the care delivered at the bedside. On completion of this programme students are expected to be able to gather relevant data from a variety of sources, critically analyse data and draw conclusions in relation to the findings, use problem solving-skills in the daily management of a wide range of critically ill patients, articulate opinions in order to formulate arguments effectively, synthesise and interpret assessment information to reach conclusions that are based on clinical judgement, and work in collaboration with the multi-professional team in order to provide a plan of care for patients. Students are also expected to be able to appraise and advance their practice through critical reflection on professional encounters.

How You Study

The course will be delivered using blended-learning methods with the core content being delivered through lectures and discussion-based seminar groups. Seminars will be supplemented by extensive directed learning that aims to enable you to further your knowledge and understanding of adult critical care.

You can also benefit from workshops which will focus on the development of the practical and collaborative interprofessional skills required for interprofessional team working and the integration of care services. You will be expected to work collaboratively with professional colleagues in your service area to ensure that you have the skills and competencies to assess, diagnose, and treat individuals requiring critical care within your professional service area.

You will also be encouraged to further your own studies and contextualise learning through independent study.

How you are assessed

On this course you will be assessed through a mixture of methods designed to demonstrate your abilities. This includes a verbal presentation, a written essay and completion of practical competencies.

The 情色六月天's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to students promptly - usually within 15 working days of the submission date.
