This course puts a strong emphasis on the integration between theory and practice, with practice as the main focus and measure of the role and quality of the Advanced Practitioner. The MSc in Advanced Practice aims to facilitate the development of a range of multi-professional Advanced Practitioners. We aim to achieve this through the following: Enabling the use of higher-level critical, analytical and reflective skills within academic and practice environments; Helping you to understand the holistic nature of advanced practice and to gain comprehensive higher-level knowledge, expertise and the individual qualities necessary to work as an autonomous, competent practitioner within unpredictable professional environments and Enabling you to fulfil the dynamic nature of healthcare, and to influence the strategic planning and delivery of Government agendas. We use a variety of assessment tools. These include an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), a literature review, examinations, presentations and assignments. The course also promotes the extension of professional roles and therefore the development of a critically reflective and responsive practitioner.
