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.
Students may study this module on its own for continuing professional development purposes, or for the award of either the Advanced Certificate Critical Care, Graduate Certificate Critical Care Nursing or BSc (Hons) Professional Practice. All students are encouraged to develop and maintain a portfolio of learning and achievement. The portfolio is not assessed but supports personal development planning, development of reflective practice and career enhancement activity.
