Critically evaluate The XX Hospital Intensive Care Unit Team Leader Self Directed Learning Package (a copy of the self directed learning package is attached) in light of the literature, national and health service policy, and other appropriate sources (especially research on large ICU leadership materials around Australia and New Zealand, could also include some large business model of leadership development within large organizations)
