This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Learn to manage critical care patients whilst protecting yourself and your peers
“One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity: the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient”
Francis W. Peabody, Harvard Medical School 1925

This education resource will teach you how to effectively care for critically ill patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

You’ll learn the daily practice for frontline clinical staff supporting critical care patients with and without COVID-19, and how to apply ventilation and organ support principles to the care of a critically ill coronavirus patient.

Staff and patient safety are paramount. This resource will help you to facilitate your own emotional and physical self-care and wellbeing in this high-stress, high-risk environment.

You’ll learn about the required PPE and reflect on the practices necessary to emotionally support yourself and your colleagues.

Please note that this resource has been created in response to the COVID-19 emergency and does not correspond to the classic structure of a FutureLearn course.

You will not receive a certificate upon completion, and you do not have to follow the week by week approach. You will be able to select the materials that are most relevant to your work.

I am happy that this course is available, since ppl are working extremely hard to bring this virus under control.

But I am really saddened to see the unnecessary deaths this country is suffering.

The government has been taking some odd steps

For example, we saw how this virus unfolded, and all we had to do was follow WHO guidelines - test, isolation, track.

South Korea, Vietnam, etc been following this method and they got this virus under control. We on the other hand delayed to take proper steps.

Those above countries had been giving and advising to use facial mask, but sadly our front line NHS staffs are not even being protective - resulting in unnecessary deaths.

I hope we start to follow WHO guidelines, and bring this pandemic under control.

OP thanks for posting, and have some heat.
