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 neurological trauma or with acute and neurological disease. These patients with acute neuroscience conditions must be expertly assessed and managed.
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) by leading expert clinicians in neuroscience and intensive care.
This course is taught at level 7 (MSc).
