    Presentación

    This new role is seen to be important in pioneering the shift of work, traditionally done only by doctors, to new, non-medically trained grades of staff. It also addresses the current workforce planning problems in critical care.

    This programme allows students to extend their studies beyond the qualification required for registration (PG Diploma: Advanced Critical Care Practitioner) to an MSc, by satisfactorily completing a dissertation.

    The programme is 27 months full-time which includes 24 months of academic study and clinical training, followed by 3 months of supervised practice.

    Requisitos

    Registered health care practitioners (eg, nurses, operating department practitioners/Physician Assistants’ (Anaesthesia)) require one or both of the following: At least three years full-time, post-qualification work experience in a relevant area, and evidence of recent (within three years) and successful academic activity. A first degree in a health-related subject.

    Objetivos

    The aim of the Advanced Critical Care Practitioner programme is to develop a new professional able to safely fulfil a proportion of those roles currently only undertaken by medically qualified intensive care trainees in the National Health Service
