Course Summary

This innovative postgraduate qualification is the first academic programme of its kind in the UK. It is designed for health and social care practitioners from a range of service backgrounds to address the skills and knowledge required to meet the transformation agenda. The programme equips professionals with the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of a rapidly changing health and social care landscape, improve the patient experience and influence service delivery.
The programme promotes the development of a competent, capable and flexible workforce where professionals work above and across traditional role boundaries towards common, client centred goals. The programme is designed to underpin advanced competence, providing critical insight into the issues surrounding transdisciplinary working and the role of different ethical and political frameworks in shaping delivery and care provision. It also focuses on managing change and understanding the research behind the evidence base for change. Students can progress into the MSc after successful completion of the PgCert and PgDip.

The curriculum has been designed to meet the needs of students from a range of transdisciplinary and employment backgrounds and will allow learning to be applied to a variety of practice areas. For example the module ‘Transdisciplinary Working’ creates learning from a range of professional philosophies and from shared ethical perspective which will then be applied to your own understanding as well as your individual transdisciplinary practice environment. Through completion of clinical competencies outside of the your profession’s traditional scope of practice and engaging in critical reflection as part of the Clinical Competence in Advanced Practice module you will be enabled to extend both knowledge and skills that will enhance your ability to work in a transdisciplinary manner. Most students initially choose to study modules that form the defined pathways within the MSc Advancing Transdisciplinary Practice.

Carrers: The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Transdisciplinary Practice has evolved from multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary team approaches where different professions are working across what have sometimes be labelled as ‘blurred boundaries’. The programme has been designed to meet the needs of the rapidly changing Health and Social Care landscape. It will promote the development of a competent, capable and flexible workforce where professionals are able to work above and across traditional role boundaries towards common person centred goals.
