Summary

We have designed the MSc Critical Care (online) programme for health care professionals who encounter critically ill adults in their daily practice. These professionals include: nurses, doctors in training, senior doctors from all specialties, allied health professionals (for example, physiotherapists, paramedics and dietitians).

Prospective students will often be working full time in professional roles and need a flexible approach to study. The programme is therefore designed as a part-time, fully online, MSc programme.

You have the option of graduating after one, two, or three years with a postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma, or MSc respectively.

You will study core clinical subjects in year one and two of the programme, covering: recognition of critical illness, initial treatment and stabilisation, advanced organ system support, coordination of care within the intensive care unit, human factors.

This will provide you with a comprehensive, practical, and evidence-based knowledge. This knowledge can easily be applied in clinical practice.

You will be able to customise your learning by choosing two elective courses: one at the end of year one and two at the end of year two.

Integrated into the programme, is a graduated exposure to academic research practice in the core “Unlocking the Literature” teaching theme. This starts in the second teaching block and builds over the first 2 years.

You will become equipped with the skills to access and appraise the biomedical literature. This will fuel your curiosity, and allow you to actively take part in clinical discussions: on the programme and with colleagues in the workplace

You will develop as an independent and critical thinker. You will be able to appraise primary and secondary research (research synthesis), and incorporate its findings into: personal practice, guidelines, improvement work.

For those choosing the MSc dissertation option, this learning will culminate in a supervised research, quality improvement, audit, or guideline development project.
