Emergency Care

Throughout this course students develop and explore knowledge, skills and professional capability in managing the complex needs of the patient in the emergency care arena. Students take part in lectures and skills workshops, with a significant emphasis on interactive scenario-based simulation training and opportunities to apply new knowledge and skills within your specialty practice. Learning and teaching in clinical practice will be under the supervision of an experienced practitioner within your own clinical area.

Entry requirements

Applicants who do not meet this criteria may be considered at the discretion of the course leader.

Assessment methods

There are 3 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 5 (expert) and an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) which takes place in the skills laboratory. The Emergency Care module assessment is through 4 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 1 of the OSCE scenarios plus a supporting written assignment. Practice is assessed by a practice supervisor and through the achievement of clinical competencies at expert level.
