This 20 credit degree-level module has been developed specifically for non-paediatric critical care practitioners and will facilitate the development of your knowledge and skills in the core elements of paediatric critical care as well as gaining further knowledge around holistic, family centred care and issues relating to the care of children and young people.
You will consolidate your knowledge of anatomy and physiology and the interventions required to care safely for a child or young person requiring L1-2 critical care, studying alongside and learning from current paediatric critical care nurses. You will also develop an understanding of the importance of utilising research and evidence in the care of those in this age group requiring intensive and critical care whilst ensuring that your practice is based on evidence and incorporates relevant professional, legal and ethical dimensions.
This module can be studied as a standalone module or as an optional module towards some of our BSc (Hons) Professional Development pathways - please contact the Professional Development Unit for further information.
This module is delivered by Bristol Royal Hospital for Children in partnership with Plymouth University.
