Course Summary

This programme provides a progression route for those who have successfully completed the PGCert Learning Disability and/or Autism at Edge Hill University. It is also available to those who have completed similar postgraduate courses elsewhere which align to the Health Education England (HEE) multi-professional credential in learning disabilities and autism in advanced practice.

Enabling health and social care professionals to extend their knowledge to an advanced level within their specialist field of practice, the course is suitable both for individuals who wish to become advanced practitioners, or for those individuals who wish to promote the advance of practice within their field of work.

The course consists of a wide range of taught and work-based learning modules that will enable busy practitioners to access patient-care enhancing education and become a leader who can demonstrate a high level of autonomy in their specialist area of practice.

Modules

Context of Advanced Practice is designed to provide a solid foundation in the four pillars of advanced clinical practice, leadership and management, education, and research. You will gain a critical insight into the drivers and professional and clinical responsibilities for safe, holistic, person-centred care applied to your role and defined scope of practice. Assessing current policy and literature on patient safety, risk, governance and quality assurance, you will also enhance your understanding of therapeutic communication, reflect on your own leadership style and establish a personal development plan to support your journey as a trainee advanced clinical practitioner.
