In intensive care, you need to make accurate assessments and difficult decisions on a daily basis. At City, we’ll help you hone the skills you use to care for patients.
This course is the first of two 15-credit courses. Intensive Care Core Skills is designed to boost your knowledge, whilst Intensive Care Role Development explores haemodynamics in more depth. Together, they are worth 30 credits and are recognised by employers.
Among the topics covered, you’ll explore respiratory failure and mechanical ventilation in conjunction with the core care needs of this patient group. You will also consider the ethics underpinning intensive care, from admitting patients to withdrawing treatment. We’ll also discuss the impact on patients and their families and explore the best ways to support them.
