Course Description

There is a need for a more generic approach toward the provision of Critical Care education following the publication of national guidance. Guidance indicates the future work force needs universal core competencies and knowledge - best achieved via a multidisciplinary critical care module. The development of an all graduate workforce necessitates the level of delivery to be increased to 6 and 7
The module will consist of monthly system themes: 
1    Cardiology 
2    Respiratory
3    Nephrology
4    Neurology
5    Gastrointestinal
6    End of life issues
Each system will be supported by information delivered electronically, formative tests and attendance days.
