Are you a registered nurse looking to update your skills in the care of acutely ill patients?
This module will refresh your knowledge and practical skills in light of contemporary evidence and guidelines in the field. In particular you will be updated on the assessment and management of patients who are acutely ill and/or who are at risk of deteriorating.
A range of teaching approaches will be used including simulation in our state of the art ‘hospital ward’, face-to-face lectures, tutorials, directed online learning and reflective writing.
After this module you will:
- Have up to date knowledge of fundamental acute care skills.
- Be more confident in the relevant practical skills fundamental to acute care.
- Develop a critical awareness of contemporary issues in nursing and healthcare.
