Course content

You will study the assessment and nursing management of acute childhood illness. This will involve the study of the disease processes including altered physiology of respiratory, cardiovascular, neurological, renal/metabolic and immune systems, during the acute illness phase. This will include • pain management • alternative airway management and principles of stabilisation • techniques and specialist care relating to conditions which require critical and intensive care nursing.

You also explore the role of the multi-disciplinary team, including breaking bad news, sibling and family care and palliative care.

In addition, you cover ethical concerns and the legal implications of nursing children in acute and critical care situations, alongside stress management and professional development issues.

The course content will be delivered through face-to-face contact, clinical skill simulation and online learning packages including webinars, e-lectures, discussion boards and online group work.
