Acute and Critical Care BSc (Hons)

This part-time BSc (Hons) Acute and Critical Care degree is for Paramedics, ODPs and nurses who wish to advance their knowledge of acutely unwell or critically ill patients.

An ageing population and increased expectations from the public will inevitably mean greater demands on NHS services based around acute deterioration and critical care needs in the future. Healthcare professionals need to be fit for purpose and deliver a high-quality service.

The Acute and Critical Care course will provide you with the knowledge, skills and understanding to assess, care for and manage patients using current evidence-based practice and applied physiology, while drawing on the legal and professional aspects that impact upon your role and responsibilities.

You will develop a more rounded and focused appreciation of your clinical practice when dealing with acutely unwell or critically ill patients in pre-hospital or community environments and hospital wards, including general wards, theatres, anaesthetics and recovery, critical care and ED.
