Course Summary

This programme has been developed in response to an emerging healthcare role, namely the Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP). It is designed to equip and enhance the healthcare practitioner with knowledge and skills in the expanding field of advanced practice, especially within secondary care. The curriculum and competency framework for Advanced Clinical Practitioner training has been developed by The Royal College of Emergency Medicine. This has informed the curriculum content and structure of this programme. Central to the Advanced Clinical Practitioner educational process is the development of a five year credentialing portfolio, of which a prerequisite is a master's level Advanced Practice award (Royal College of Emergengy Medicine, 2015); this programme aims to fulfil this requirement. The evidence-based credentialing portfolio is not part of the programme and should be completed in partnership with your employing organisation. The course team has a variety of research interests and expertise, including advanced practice, nurse prescribing, emergency care and research design.

Career Prospects: The enhanced skills of analysis that students will gain through this programme of study may lead to promotional opportunities either in the clinical area, or in the fields of education, management or research. Students may progress to doctoral studies in their specific subject context, and the generic, transferable skills acquired throughout the programme may also open up employment opportunities outside these areas.
