This course is designed to incorporate a multidisciplinary perspective that follows the patient pathway from admission to hospital discharge, which is essential when entering leadership roles in today’s healthcare systems. You’ll learn a holistic approach to patient care alongside clinical leadership skills and how to use evidence-based practice and research to make informed decisions that grow your knowledge and expertise in critical care.
Your learning will be underpinned by the national Advanced Clinical Practice framework as set out by Health Education England, encompassing the four pillars: clinical practice, leadership and management, education, and research.
As well as studying key modules in advanced clinical practice, leadership, evidence-based practice and research, you’ll select modules to define your specialist pathway in critical care, where you’ll develop an advanced knowledge of anatomy and physiology. This forms the backbone of critical care practice.
You'll also be able to support your study learning portfolio by choosing from a range of optional modules from our Advanced Clinical Practice named specialist pathways; Cardiovascular Health, Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation, Neurological Rehabilitation, Occupational Therapy, and Pelvic Health.
