Course summary

About the course

This course is designed for health professionals working in an emergency care setting. It provides academic accreditation to the specialist knowledge and skills required to work in the field of emergency care. The course aims to encourage clinical and professional development, leadership skills and career progression in emergency care.

  • The course content is informed by the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) National Curriculum and Framework for Emergency Nursing. It provides a foundation for caring for people throughout the life span and with conditions specific to all body systems.
  • Elements unique to emergency care will be covered including major incident management, emergency care of children and younger people and minor injury management as well as emergency mental health care. In addition, the course will include initial assessment and treatment of acutely ill adults.
  • Specific cross-cutting themes such as medicines management and safeguarding concerns will be integrated throughout the course elements.
  • You will have opportunity to study with colleagues from other disciplines and specialties and engage in simulation-based learning activities to develop team work and critical understanding.

Placements

You will be required to undertake practice based learning and assessment, which will normally be within your own emergency care setting. However, if there are core competencies that are not achievable you will need to arrange alternative settings which will allow you to meet these.

Career support

This short course will assist you to meet the specialist skills and post-registration development requirements stipulated by your employer/professional regulator.
