Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care (APMIC) is a unique medical specialty. It involves hands on manipulation of physiology and real-time pharmacological intervention to effectively and safely manage patients in all parts of the hospital. Read more
Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care (APMIC) is a unique medical specialty. It involves hands on manipulation of physiology and real-time pharmacological intervention to effectively and safely manage patients in all parts of the hospital. Practice varies from treating life-threatening illnesses within the ICU, to relieving pain in the ward and clinic, to safely anaesthetising patients in the operating theatre. The application of basic science can be seen to directly affect clinical care and thus provides an excellent environment for translational research. As healthcare becomes more centralised in larger Academic Health Science Networks, it is becoming apparent that positions in prestigious institutions require more than standard clinical training programmes. Evidence of additional training, particularly in academic work, is required to demonstrate an individual’s competitive edge. However, not everyone will want or have the opportunity to complete a full PhD training programme. This Masters in Research course will provide training and qualification in all the fundamental principles of Anaesthetic, Pain Medicine and Intensive care research. Based in the Department of Surgery and Cancer in the Faculty of Medicine, the stream provides an opportunity to learn, in a supportive and stimulating environment, from leaders in the field who are actively engaged in research.

The emphasis of the course will be to provide a thorough training in Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care (APMIC) research from fundamental principles of molecular mechanisms toward clinical basic principles. Through the two research-based projects students will be exposed to the latest developments in the field and will gain first-hand experience in applying the methods they are taught to research questions in Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care.

Individuals who complete the course will have developed the ability to:

-Understand fundamental principles of molecular mechanisms of APMIC
-Describe advanced physiology and pharmacology of APMIC
-Master principles of translation of research and research techniques
-Gain detailed knowledge and understanding of the essential facts, concepts, principles, techniques and theories relevant to the students' chosen research project
-Develop management and communication skills, including problem definition, project design, decision processes, written and oral reports and scientific publications
-This will be achieved through completing two research projects, supplemented with a course of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and technical workshops. Please note that Postgraduate Diplomas and Certificates for part-completion are not available for this course.

The stream will be based in the section of APMIC, Department of Surgery and Cancer on the Chelsea and Westminster Campus of Imperial College London.

Each student chooses two projects over the course of the year from the wide range available. Students are guided in this choice by the course organiser and their personal tutor and are advised to take contrasting projects to ensure a balanced training.

Placements

- Time spent on placement:
During the course you will spend 50% of your time involved in academic study and 50% in clinical practice. A clinical practice placement allows you to put theory into practice by working with a range of health professionals in clinical situations to develop the skills, knowledge and experience required to become a competent nurse. Although sometimes challenging, practice learning is one of the most interesting and exciting aspects of learning to be a nurse.

- Clinical settings:
At LSBU, you will experience a variety of clinical settings such as NHS acute Trusts, community placements, independent sector and voluntary sector organisations.

If you are based at our Southwark campus you are able to experience placements at Guy's Hospital, St Thomas' Hospital, University College London Hospital, Newham University Hospital and Whipps Cross University Hospital. You will also undertake a placement in the community.

If you are based at our Havering campus you are able to experience placements at Newham University Hospital, Whipps Cross University Hospital, King George Hospital and Queen's Hospital; along with a placement within the community.

- Structure of placements:
Placements are spread over the two years:

Your first clinical placements are designed to introduce you to working in a professional setting and to develop essential care and basic assessment skills, infection control and learn about safeguarding vulnerable people.

You will then begin to take on more responsibility, progressing your clinical reasoning skills and begin to look small groups of patients making confident, proactive decision for their health management with little supervision.

You will also have one four week elective placement in which you can choose a speciality (e.g. working with Clinical Nurse Specialists, specialist services or independent and 3rd sector providers), or a different context of care (e.g. prison, private health care facility, social care, charity, hospice etc.), or a lived experience of a certain condition (e.g. charity work, carer shadowing, etc.)

-Supported by a mentor
Whilst in the clinical placement we ensure you receive continuous support and guidance from a dedicated mentor and practice learning teams made up of lecturers and practitioners.

Facilities

- Adult Nursing skills laboratories
We have two adult nursing skills laboratories at our Southwark campus and three at our Havering campus. Our nursing skills labs; set up like hospital wards are used by all student nurses and midwives throughout their courses. They learn manual handling and basic life support skills and skills that are specific to their field of nursing or midwifery.

- SimMan
The nursing wards have simulator mannequins: SimMan, SimBaby and SimMom. These life-size mannequins are computer controlled and can be programmed with various clinical conditions. These are operated by a computer in real-time and so respond to a student's actions. They also allow students to see the outcome of specific interventions in certain scenarios, which could make the patient better or deteriorate quite quickly.

The mannequins are used to teach students how to recognise clinical signs, and to also associate those clinical signs with the actions they are taking to care for the patient. SimMan can be male or converted to female with fully accurate anatomy and can breathe, blink, sweat, speak and groan in pain as well as have a pulse.

Key Features of Enhanced Neonatal Care

Performance:

- unique to Wales

Teaching and Employability:

- enables experienced practitioners to further enhance their clinical skills
- underpins knowledge to provide increased holistic care to sick and preterm neonates

The clinical staff in ABMU neonatal unit delivers an in-house programme of study known as the NEST programme (Neonatal Enhanced Skills Training programme). This comprises of eight intensive taught days which forms part of the blended learning approach used to support the Post Graduate Certificate in Enhanced Neonatal Care.

The post graduate certificate in Enhanced Neonatal Care enables students to enhance their knowledge and understanding, as well as clinical skills, in areas such as venepuncture and blood gas analysis. Underpinning theory and knowledge pertinent to the care of neonates is demonstrated through the development of a portfolio of evidence and accompanying narrative.

NEST is an eight day intensive clinical programme which is delivered by staff in ABMU Neonatal Unit. Enhanced Neonatal Care students are expected to attend all eight days and then complete supervised practice to achieve defined clinical skills. Each student will need to identify a suitable clinical mentor who can support learning in the student’s clinical environment and assess clinical competence. The Post Graduate Certificate in Enhanced Neonatal Care course involves completion of two 30 credit work based learning modules which are assessed via completion of a portfolio of evidence which demonstrates underpinning knowledge, learning and mastery of associated clinical skills. Attainment of the Post Graduate Certificate is through attendance of the eight taught days, submission of the two module portfolios and competence based assessment in clinical practice of the integrated clinical skills.
