The purpose of this 15 credit course is to enable you to effectively apply principles of care to a patient who has been admitted to a critical care setting following a traumatic injury. Life-threatening injuries, often involving many systems of the body, must be rapidly identified and treated, with consideration given to clinical presentation, mechanism of injury, age, co-morbid factors and pre-existing medical conditions.
Once the patient has entered the critical care setting, it is essential that health care practitioners have the necessary knowledge and skills needed to ensure ongoing assessment, identification of problems, the ability to access expert help and to assist the patient on the road to rehabilitation.
This course is offered in collaboration with Barts Health NHS Trust and will be taught on site at the Adult Critical Care Unit (ACCU). Leading trauma clinicians and experts will be involved in the teaching of the course.
Who is it for?
We have designed this course for registered nurses working in an intensive care unit who care for patients following major trauma and who wish to develop their knowledge of major trauma patient management within definitive care.
