Course content

The Postgraduate Certificate in Acute and Critical Care addresses the complex care required by critically ill patients. Patients can become acutely or critically ill at any time and the more ill the patient becomes, the more likely they are to be vulnerable, physiologically unstable and require complex care.

Acutely or critically ill patients exist throughout many settings in hospitals and beyond and there is a need to ensure the quality of care is delivered by knowledgeable health care practitioners.

This one-year Acute and Critical Care course is suitable if you work in ICU, CCU, HDU, A&E, theatres, medical/surgical assessment units (MAU/SAU), pre-hospital care and general acute wards.
