Paediatric Critical Care 1: essentials of care and interventions (degree and masters level)

Key features

This 20 credit module can be taken at degree or masters level and will give you the basics of what is involved in a paediatric intensive care environment.

At degree level you will be introduced to the basics of paediatric intensive care, focusing on the care and interventions needed by children requiring L1-2 care whilst incorporating the principles of holistic, family centred care. You will develop your knowledge of anatomy and physiology and your assessment skills relating to critically ill infants, children and young people. You will also be introduced to the evidence base for PIC care.

At masters level you will enhance your understanding of the essentials of paediatric care whilst focusing on the management of holistic, family centred care and interventions for children requiring L1-2 care. You will enhance your existing anatomy and physiology knowledge whilst further building on your skills in assessing and responding appropriately to critically ill infants, children and young people. Your ability to apply the evidence base for PIC in practice will also be developed.

This module can be studied as a standalone module at both levels, as an optional module towards some of our BSc (Hons) Professional Development pathways at degree level or as an optional module towards our MSc Advanced Professional Practice (Nursing and Midwifery Professions) programme and some other associated pathways at masters level  - please contact the Professional Development Unit for further information.
