This module has been developed for nurses who wish to evaluate the effectiveness of the nursing and medical interventions utilised to support care delivery in the intensive care setting. The module is patient focussed and explores the respiratory, renal, sepsis and nutritional support strategies utilised to prioritise patient treatment and interventions following the development of organ failure. It will also review practice development, including care pathways, and the impact of government policy on the provision of care.
