The Acute Illness Course
Background Changes In health care provision McQuillan et al (1998) – Suboptimal care DH and Modernisation Agency (2003) Patients at-risk, deteriorating, or recovering from critical illness are not always well managed…Current education does not properly equip healthcare providers to care for critically ill patients, particularly those outside designated critical care departments. Collaboration – The acute illness course (2006)
The Acute Illness Course Aim. –Developing clinical knowledge and skills of staff caring for acutely ill patients Theory embedded in Practice – Practice supported by Theory Teaching strategies Lectures, problem based debates/discussions/sharing practices Simulated Practice & Clinical placements within alternative clinical areas Assessment strategies Portfolio – application of theory to practice Simulated Clinical Scenario Choice
Evaluation I now feel more confident in care that I provide to my patients. In acute situations I feel more able to stay in control because I am able to understand more about whats happening. This course has been excellent……It has helped me develop myself personally and professionally. I feel a lot more confident at work and colleagues have praised me. Its great, you dont want people to go on a course for the sake of it ….they have got to want to do it and they have got to want to develop clinically. Manager
