Course Summary

INTRODUCTION

This course is aimed at health and social care practitioners who wish to develop the competencies of Advanced Clinical Practice and to facilitate change in patient and service outcomes. It uses a work-based learning approach to develop the higher level skills that will lead to advanced clinical practitioner status and enhance your career prospects.

This course has also been collaboratively developed to provide the Advanced Critical Care Practitioner training in line with the Faculty of Intensive care (FICM) curriculum.

You will:

  • Study on a multi-professional course which places work at the centre of learning
  • Have access to expertise and skills from a wide range of professionals including non-medical consultants, advanced clinical practitioners, medical practitioners and guest lecturers at the cutting-edge of health and social care
  • Be supported in clinical practice by advanced clinical practitioners, consultants, specialist registrars or general practitioners

CAREER LINKS

The emphasis on work-based learning rather than classroom teaching distinguishes this course from more traditional taught courses. The collaboration between the workplace and academic facilitators is innovative and embraces the ethos of overall course philosophy and design and is in accordance with the University strategic objective of strengthening partnerships with partner organisations.

A learning facilitator will be employed with a particular remit to work with practice-based assessors and mentors in order to assure the quality of clinical and work-based learning/assessments.

Modules

This module provides the scientific underpinning for the academic and clinical development of experienced and competent practitioners to facilitate the appropriate assessment, diagnosis, prescription and therapeutic management of clients/service users by the application of life sciences.
