COVID-19 Critical Care Course

Dr Graham Nimmo has led a team effort to make a COVID-19 Critical Care Course freely available to clinical staff on the front line.

The course has been much in demand with over 300K people accessing it world wide!


The University’s MSc Critical Care team – in conjunction with the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh – has developed an online training and education hub called the Covid-19 Critical Care Education Resource.

The resource hub – hosted on social learning platform FutureLearn – provides access to professional knowledge and expertise covering routine critical care activities, as well as Covid-19 specific education. It also provides practical tools for self-care and staff wellbeing.

Critical care focuses on the patient, their family, and the staff who look after them. As learners and teachers, it is our privilege to create a community of learning with the common goal of improving patient care and outcome whilst supporting staff. These are the principles upon which our MSc Critical Care programme is based. This resource is entirely open access and we hope that it will benefit staff in our NHS and beyond.
