FutureLearn is one of the world’s leading social learning platforms. We partner with the best universities and content specialists around the world to create free online courses across a broad range of subjects, which are available to anyone in the world with an internet connection.
@EdinburghUni’s MSc Critical Care team – in conjunction with the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh @RCPEdin – has launched a free online training and education hub called ‘COVID-19 Critical Care: Understanding and Application’, available to join now on leading social learning platform, FutureLearn.com.
The University of Edinburgh continues to support the frontline fight against the coronavirus pandemic by making a selection of its course materials available to NHS staff through this hub. The initiative is aimed at equipping clinical staff or healthcare providers with the tools to combat the virus and save lives.
The free resource has been designed to support frontline healthcare providers across the world, some of whom may be treating critically ill patients for the first time. It is also available to clinicians who are caring for the critically ill after time away from the frontline, and provides access to professional knowledge and expertise covering routine critical care activities, as well as COVID-19 specific education. The course also provides practical tools for self-care and staff wellbeing.
Dr Graham Nimmo, Programme Director of MSc Critical Care, said:
@FutureLearn, the leading social learning platform, has worked with its global partners, which include over 170 world class organisations and 25% of the world’s top universities, to launch a number of courses and resources that will support academics, students, healthcare workers, as well as members of the general public, affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
