This master’s course aims to provide continuing professional development for healthcare professionals from a range of backgrounds, and is rooted in Health Education England’s National Framework for Advanced Clinical Practice. It is designed to enhance your ability to work across clinical teams and take on leadership responsibilities in multi-disciplinary roles, and ultimately enhance the care provided for patients. This degree is aimed at healthcare practitioners who want the opportunity to make a real difference and improve standards of practice throughout all aspects of healthcare provision. It is also available as a Level 7 apprenticeship, which some NHS Trusts fund through the apprenticeship levy. Find out more at https://www.coventry.ac.uk/apprenticeships. This exciting programme has been developed to meet the needs of healthcare practitioners who wish to expand their practice, to be recognised as 'Advanced Practitioners'. The course will support development of the ability to:
- Enhance the quality and standard of patient care;
- Influence the strategic direction of patient care within your own field of practice;
- Develop into an enquiring and reflective clinician.
Assessment methods are varied and may include essays, vlogs, case presentations, simulated consultations and project reports, among others. They are designed to give you the opportunity to measure effective safe clinical practice, while also delivering practical skills in presentation and engagement with colleagues. Together they can feed forward into your ongoing growth and development. The creation of an individual practice portfolio, feeds throughout the course demonstrating advanced clinical practice competence, capability and expertise within your specific field of practice. The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards the achieving the intended learning outcomes. Assessments may include exams, individual assignments or group work elements.
