The Cardiff University Critical Care programme is a part-time, distance-learning course that seeks to provide students with the ability to investigate critical care as a multidimensional phenomenon through module assignments and taught elements.
From pre-hospital assessment until discharge from critical and intensive care settings, critical care is the specialised and systematic care of patients whose symptoms are life-threatening. The course looks at how to treat chronically ill patients, and the final dissertation allows you to dig deep into topics around modern critical care practice. The course also seeks to provide information to people who teach in the critical care environment at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels so that they can expand their skills and better teach others.
The entire MSc programme takes two years to complete, but if you meet any of the requirements, you can graduate with a Postgraduate Certificate after nine months or a Postgraduate Diploma after 18 months.
The lecture portion exposes you to the complexities of caring for a chronically ill patient. The modular approach enables you to assess an emergency or critically ill health treatment from an evidence-based standpoint at any stage in the patient’s path (pre-hospital to discharge), allowing for multi-professional consideration. Disciplinary topics such as interprofessional practise, regulation, ethics, consistency, and protection, as well as psychosocial elements of caring for chronically ill patients, are discussed. The tests are set up in such a way that students can interpret the subject in light of their own experience and educational background.
Approximately 50 places are available per intake, and the bulk of students pay for their education themselves, while some receive financial aid from charities and trusts.
