About

Advanced critical care practitioners (ACCP) are now a recognised and embedded role within the critical care workforce. The development of this Advanced Critical Care Practitioner at Keele University is a response to the modern NHS and the changing complexities of patients who are admitted to critical care along with the ongoing demands of recruitment and retention in the medical workforce.

Overview

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.
