3. Discuss the care and management of patients with a variety of acute care needs

4. Analyse and apply the evidence base that informs the care of the critically ill adult.

Ensure you consider somewhere your patient’s risk of deterioration. That is what the module is about.
Your essay should have an intro (where you introduce the question/s) middle (where you answer the question/s and an end (where you summarise your answer).
