Are you a busy healthcare professional looking to extend your knowledge to an advanced level within your specialist field of practice? You can achieve that on this dynamic, multi-professional course, where you will study a contemporary advanced clinical practice programme with a specific focus on working in Primary Care and in the Community. You will have the opportunity to explore a number of Primary Care and Community orientated pathways through the programme as well as flexible study options that are designed to fit in around you and your work commitments. Studying at Master’s level, you will be informed by the latest developments in clinical practice. The modules are mapped to the HEE Multi-Professional Framework and the programme is seeking accreditation from the Centre for Advancing Practice. The core modules are designed to link with your clinical practice setting where you will complete a supervised clinical component in support of your learning. As well as the core threads of mental health and public health embedded in all teaching, the programme will embrace themes of leadership, sustainability and evidence-based practice. An appreciation of the role of the key components of Advanced Practice – leadership, education, clinical practice and research – will be integrated into your learning, enabling you to demonstrate competence in these components in practice. The programme will rely on your multi-professional credentials and there is an expectation that you will participate and support the learning of others throughout the course. You can study the Advanced Clinical Practice MSc course as a one-year full-time student, or over either two or three years part-time. Proposed core modules are: Advanced Practice (parts 1 & 2), Clinical Placement (parts 1 & 2) and Research in Practice. Proposed optional modules may include: Independent and Supplementary Prescribing, Musculoskeletal Practice in Primary Care, Mental Health in Non-Mental Health Settings, Physical Activity for People with Long-term Conditions, Healthy Ageing – Community Rehabilitation, and Management of Cognitive Impairment. The research component will be embedded throughout the programme and you will write a research-based paper that you will present as a final assessment. The learning and teaching approach will adopt a variety of methods of blended delivery, utilising a guided discovery approach. Case studies and your own experiences will be used to inform and challenge your learning which will be integrated into practice throughout the programme. Teaching will include keynote lectures, small group work, practical sessions, project supervision, tutor-led tutorials and seminars, clinical practice learning, and guided independent study. There will be a strong emphasis on student wellbeing and support, underpinned by the values of the University, for developing graduates who are adaptable, flexible and ‘tuned’ to the future needs of health care. You will normally be required to be employed in an appropriate clinical setting during the period of study as there is a requirement for work-based learning and supervised clinical practice to be successfully completed as part of the programme which contributes to the awards.
