Modules & assessment
Core modules
  • Adult Acute CareThis module explores all aspects of adult acute care and the support required for family or carers. It builds on the concept of Quality Critical Care (2005), recognising that individuals have the right to specialist care, regardless of location or speciality. Patient safety is an absolute priority and lessons learnt from the NPSA reports (2007,2008) and the initiative of 'Reducing Harm from Deterioration' (Patient Safety First 2008) is incorporated as an outcome measure.
  • Emergency CareInjury or illness may occur suddenly or may arise as a consequence of an underlying condition. It may have life-threatening implications. The purpose of this module is to consider and explore the common illnesses and injuries of clients attending the emergency department.
Please note that you will need to complete all of the above core modules. This course does not have any optional modules. Modules are subject to change.Assessment

There are three parts to the Adult Acute Care module: a critical analysis relating to an aspect of care in an acutely ill patient, clinical competencies to stage five (expert) and an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) which takes place in the skills laboratory.

Your Emergency Care module assessment is through four short OSCE scenarios which explore and analyse the assessment and management of service users across a spectrum of clinical presentations, and through a Viva Voce of one of the OSCE scenarios plus a supporting written assignment. Your practice is assessed by a practice supervisor and through the achievement of clinical competencies at expert level.
