The Advanced Critical Care Practitioner at Keele University will develop theoretical knowledge, practical skills and professional judgment, complementing work based assessments, clinical practice and experience to fulfil the competencies expected of a qualified ACCP in line with the Domains of Good Medical Practice.
The module responds to FICM’s recommendations that the “theoretical component of the competencies be taught and assessed by a HEI.” The module is generic with specialist elements to allow for transferability to individual units. High standard in depth theoretical knowledge is taught and facilitated to achieve not only mastery academic assessments but also necessary clinical competencies (overseen by the Local Clinical Lead) to ultimately make high-level clinical decisions as an ACCP.
Students who successfully complete this module will be able to:
- Apply advanced knowledge in the anatomy, physiology, pathology and pharmacology of critical illness.
- Critically appraise clinical governance, policies and procedures of independent practice in relation to the Advanced Critical Care Practitioner.
- Demonstrate advanced knowledge and skills in critical care and provide a direct contribution to the assessment, treatment and planning of care, and evaluation of patients with critical illness.
- Function as part of the critical care team and work within a defined scope of practice and to clinical standards agreed nationally and applied within the local clinical setting
- Prescribe elements of care and treatment that will be delivered by other member of the healthcare team; refer for diagnostic tests and specialist opinion as required.
