Paediatric Critical Care 3: Enhanced care and interventions (degree and masters level)

Key features

This 20 credit module is offered at degree and masters level and will increase your knowledge and skills in the advanced elements of paediatric critical care for children and young people requiring L3-4 complex critical care. The principles of holistic family centred care and issues of professionalism and leadership within the NHS will also be addressed by both modules.

Please note: you must have successfully completed the Paediatric Critical Care 2: Foundations of care and interventions module before applying to undertake this module - please contact the Faculty of Children’s Nurse Education for further information.

At degree level you will increase your knowledge of the physiology of complex systemic disturbances and the interventions required to care safely for children and young and people in need of complex critical care, utilising current research and evidence to underpin your practice. You will also consolidate your ability to apply research and evidence in the care of those requiring complex intensive and critical care interventions whilst developing your ability to act as a leader, advocate and change agent within paediatric critical care and the NHS.

At masters level you will enhance your ability to use the evidence base to justify the care provided to infants, children and young people requiring complex intensive and critical care interventions. You will also develop your theoretical understanding and abilities in acting as a leader, advocate and change agent within paediatric critical care and the NHS.

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.

These modules are delivered by Bristol Royal Hospital for Children in partnership with Plymouth University.
