Summary

This programme enables experienced healthcare professionals to acquire and develop the skills and knowledge inherent to the core capabilities and specialist competencies across the four pillars of Advanced Clinical Practice: clinical practice, leadership and management, education and research.

The Masters programme supports students throughout their transformation journey towards advanced clinical practice. It supports the workforce development needs of contemporary healthcare providers, whilst also taking into account the learning, teaching and quality assurance required of Master`s Level study.

Students will develop the confidence, mastery and skills to become leaders within clinical practice, promoting and enabling patient-centred care, innovative treatment models and clinical effectiveness. Critical reflection on the patient care provided within a political, social and environmental context, utilising knowledge of public health data of patients in their clinical area, is at the core of our course. Students will learn to engage with an increased complexity of clinical decision making, arriving at safe and well justifiable outcomes.

The modules within this course are designed to support health and social care practitioners as they make the transformation into advanced clinical practitioners. The use of a portfolio throughout the course supports and demonstrates your professional development. Modules are mapped against National standards for advancing practice, focusing on the four pillars of education, clinical practice, research and leadership. You will critically explore, evaluate and apply theory from the classroom into clinical practice, reflecting upon, and identifying your own learning needs in order to enhance your practice in the workplace.
