Course summary

Overview

This new Advanced Critical Care Practitioner (ACCP) course has been developed by King’s in response to the need for new practitioners as outlined by the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM) to address the shortage of doctors in Intensive Care Units (ICU).

Course detail

This course is suitable for nurses and allied healthcare professionals currently employed in clinical practice as an ACCP trainee in an intensive care unit. Applicants must be employed in ACCP trainee roles before commencing this postgraduate course. Please note that there are a limited number of places available on each optional module. You will have the opportunity to discuss your choices with your personal tutor. The objective of the programme is to produce high quality patient-centred practitioners with appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable them to practice in intensive care.

Course format and assessment

Lectures, seminars and feedback are approximately 150 hours (25% of total hours) in a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, project supervision and workshops. Self-study is approximately 450 hours (75% of total hours) of independent study such as preparing for scheduled sessions, follow-up work, wider reading, and completion of assessment task or revision. This will vary according to the optional modules chosen. Students are assessed through a combination of coursework, which can include written assignments such as essays, portfolios and dissertations, and examinations. In addition, some modules will require students to undertake a presentation as part of the module assessment. A small number of modules are assessed by an exam such as OSCEs (objective structured clinical examination) or a computer-based assessment. All students will also have to complete a clinical competency assessment document using the FICM ACCP assessment documents. The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change.
