What you’ll learn

On completion you should be able to:

  • understand problems associated with rehabilitation of critically ill patients
  • consider novel approaches to rehabilitation of the critically ill
  • consider survivorship
  • understand factors that help to promote the rehabilitation of critically ill patients
  • consider when rehabilitation of critical care patients should begin
  • consider post intensive care problems, pain and welfare.

This course has been specifically designed to be delivered entirely virtually. You will benefit from both tutor-led sessions, pre-recorded sessions and interactive exercises.

We encourage active discussion, so you’ll have the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with your peers.

We have limited the number of places in order to ensure that you receive the best possible learning experience.
