This course is for people who are working as physiotherapists, who wish to develop themselves and their profession. The MSc in Advancing Physiotherapy Practice aims to help you thrive in health and social contexts where the pace of change is high and professionals need to be dynamic and proactive to meet the needs of the people they work with.

The programme of study aims to be:

-Clinical: with a focus on highly topical subjects, ability to learn in and from the workplace, practical experience, and ability to take specialist clinical and practice routes: for example, musculoskeletal physiotherapy, neurological physiotherapy, cardiorespiratory physiotherapy, paediatric physiotherapy, leadership and management, and education.

- Flexible: with a determination to enable study for students who have a variety of circumstances, and who live in different countries. Two paces of study are available (full-time and part-time) and two modes of study (distance learning, and blended learning which requires attendance). The standard full-time pace is 18 months, which can be accelerated to 12 months where relevant requirements are met. Please see the section on study routes for further details.

- Supportive: with a focus on helping you to adjust to master’s level study at the start of the programme, to stay engaged with your profession throughout the course, and to increase your employability as you progress towards completion. Alongside modules you will be involved in a ‘Learning in Community Programme,’ which includes study skills training, social events, CPD opportunities such as Master Classes, and opportunities and guidance to increase your employability, including guidance on professional registration.

The knowledge and skills developed over the course are intended to enable you to lead and implement innovative change within physiotherapy workplaces in the UK and internationally.

Study routes

-Full-time with attendance (12-18 months): The full-time study route makes use of blended mode of learning which includes face-to-face contact supported by online resources. This is designed with international students in mind and offers attractive practical modules as well as opportunities to learn in clinical settings (see modules). The standard duration of the full-time route is 18 months. This is valuable if your priority is to use all opportunities to develop your professional standing and employability. If you wish to prioritise quick completion of your MSc Advancing Physiotherapy Practice, and meet requirements, you can accelerate it to 12 months duration.

-Part-time with attendance (3-7 years): You can study the MSc Advancing Physiotherapy Practice part-time, with a minimum duration of 3 years, and maximum duration of 7 years. If you study this route you can select modules that involve some attendance and some online study. For example, some modules are delivered with blocks of attendance and online study between these blocks. If you study part-time you can also choose to complete distance learning modules as part of your programme.

-Distance learning (part-time or full-time) (1-7 years): You can choose modules that enable you to complete your MSc Advancing Physiotherapy Practice entirely as distance learning . You can study distance learning at a full-time pace (12-18 months duration) or at a part-time pace (3-7 years).

Teaching, learning and assessment

We use a range of student-centred learning methods, including tutorials, seminars and practical classes, with facilitation of work-based learning and recognition of prior learning. Further specific strategies are used to enable distance learning.
Your performance will be assessed by coursework (assignments), presentations and practical examinations, and you are provided with structured support in learning how to develop and demonstrate your academic skills at a master’s level. Class sizes are usually 5-10 students.

Teaching hours and attendance

Each module that is studied on-campus will require you to attend classes and carry out independent work. Your attendance requirements at QMU will vary between semesters of study, but contact time might average about six hours per week over one academic year; this would be higher during taught modules. Whether you are studying distance learning or through a mixture of face-to-face contact and online work (blended learning), each 30-credit module will entail around 300 hours of student work. This includes contact with tutors (online or face-to-face), supported by independent learning. When thinking about the total amount of learning, for the full-time pace of study, you will undertake 120 credits of study over two 15-week semesters, followed by your dissertation. This suggests up to 40 hours per week of study. A student who chooses to study part-time may be undertaking, for example, 60 credits of study, which would equate to about 20 hours per week of study. The distance learning route can be studied part-time or full-time.

Links with industry/professional bodies

In order to design a flexible, clinical and supportive programme, we talked with current students, ex-students and employers internationally. We collaborate with many physiotherapists and managers locally to create opportunities for our students to contribute to the development of physiotherapy services during their programmes. This ensures the relevance of their studies, their professional development, and advancement of the physiotherapy profession. The MSc Physiotherapy is accredited by the UK’s Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (to be confirmed following recent revalidation). This course does not lead to HCPC registration. However, advice is given to assist the process of registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Course material will also help the student to develop knowledge and skills recognised by the HCPC.

Duration: PgCert 1 year–18 months, PgDip 18 months-30 months MSc 3-5 years
Location: City North Campus

Key Facts:
The aim of the course is to provide qualified practitioners with a high level of specialist ultrasound knowledge and clinical experience. The course also develops investigative and analytical skills in order to help you to become a highly competent sonographer.

Although typically aimed at radiographers, midwives, doctors and nurses, anyone with a health based or science degree and a clinical placement may apply.

In addition, the course aims to develop interpersonal skills so that you become a highly effective communicator within the context of medical ultrasound.

The course teaching team are all practising sonographers and are therefore up to date with current practice. Innovative methods of teaching and learning are embedded in the academic programme. These include: audio and video lectures, online learning and the use of an ultrasound simulator for learning scanning techniques and recognising pathology.

Another important feature of the programme is the high level of support that the course team make available to you. Lectures are delivered to small groups, we have an open door policy and always answer emails and return phone calls.

Expect to experience a spectrum of academic studies that you can use to support your clinical and professional development.

Course overview:
The course is aimed qualified healthcare professionals - such as radiographers, midwives, nurses and doctors - who want to extend their field of expertise into the production and interpretation of diagnostic ultrasound images. Ultrasound is regarded as a complementary imaging procedure undertaken in the majority of modern. Diagnostic Imaging or X-ray departments. Sonographers scan patients/clients with a variety of diseases and conditions and, under written protocols, report on the images produced.

Entry Requirements:
You will normally be expected to hold either a first degree or an equivalent professional qualification and have had a minimum of two years experience as a qualified practitioner. The majority of applicants will be radiographers, midwives, doctors and nurses. However we will consider applicants with health based or science degrees providing that they are able to obtain a clinical placement. You must ensure that you have a satisfactory clinical placement where you can obtain a minimum of 250 hours of supervised ‘hands on’ clinical ultrasound experience - this is equivalent to 1 ½ days per week over a nine month period.

Why should I study this course?
Our postgraduate awards have received professional accreditation from CASE – the Consortium for Accreditation of Sonographic Education and are taught within the region’s foremost centre for radiography education, with a well-established and successful history. The course will further enhance your skills professionally, personally and practically.

Course structure:
This is a part-time day and evening course which has academic and clinical placement components. The academic components are delivered at the University on a Wednesday afternoon and evening. The clinical component takes place in practice and should cover a minimum of one day per week.

How will I be taught?
We place a real emphasis on student-centred learning, so the majority of study is by seminar and discussion groups where you and your fellow students will learn a great deal by sharing experiences. There will be a substantial amount of material that will be taught online or through video lectures.

Placements, Study Visits Available:
You are expected to organise your own clinical placement where you can obtain a minimum of 250 hours of supervised ‘hands on’ clinical ultrasound experience. This is equivalent to 1 ½ days per week over a nine month period.

Assessment:
You will be assessed via written assignments, presentations, examinations and clinical assessments. Academic modules are assessed by either a 3,000 word assignment or a 2,000 word assignment and a one hour unseen written examination. Clinical modules are assessed by clinical assessment (observed performance of ultrasound scans) in their own departments and OSCEs (Objective Structured Clinical Examinations) undertaken at the University. You also have to keep a log book and diary of clinical practice.

Employability:
Health care professionals with a Medical Ultrasound degree are in great demand to work as sonographers and you will also be able to extend the scope of your current practice by incorporating expertise in sonography.

There is a severe shortage of sonographers. Sonography is an expanding field, with a steady increase in examinations requested year by year therefore you should have no difficulty in finding work as a qualified sonographer.

This programme is aimed at registered nurses and midwives, with experience in acute or primary care settings, who wish to build on their experience and transfer their learning in order to develop the higher level of knowledge and skills required for specialist and advanced practice.

Students will be prepared to function at master's level through the programme and will have the unique opportunity to develop practice at a higher level. In the past 'advanced practitioner' posts have tended to be characterised principally by clinical competence; however, this programme accepts that advanced practice is a 'level' of practice rather than a particular role. This programme takes into account the four pillars of practice: clinical practice; leadership; facilitation of learning; and evidence research and development. Therefore, some practitioners will focus on leading and managing services; others will focus on clinical practice and be able to diagnose and treat healthcare needs; and others will have advanced roles within public health.

Visit the website: http://www.rgu.ac.uk/health-professions/study-options/part-time-learning/advanced-nursing-practice

Course detail

There are five routes within the programme:
• Clinical Practice (3 years part-time)
• District Nursing (3 years part-time)
• Health Visiting (18 months full-time or 3 years part-time)
• Leadership (3 years part-time)
• School Nursing (18 months full-time or 3 years part-time)

There are exit points within this award to allow you to complete with a postgraduate certificate, diploma or an MSc. The professional qualification of district nurse, health visitor or school nurse will be recorded on completion of stage 1 but you may choose to continue to complete the whole MSc.

Clinical Practice:

- is directly linked to the teaching, development and assessment of the nationally recognised benchmarks for advanced clinical practice (RCN 2010). This will be the preferred route for practitioners working in acute care, out of hours services, hospital at night services and in medical and surgical support posts.

District Nursing:

- is aimed at experienced nurses who wish to gain contemporary knowledge to take forward the rapidly changing primary care agenda. It will enable a critical, innovative and reflective approach to address the healthcare needs of individuals, families, carers, groups and communities. Students need to be sponsored or supported by an NHS Board in order to meet the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for practice assessment.

Health Visiting:

- is aimed at nurses and midwives who wish to build on their experience and transfer their learning in order to develop the higher level of knowledge and skills required of a health visitor. Students need to be sponsored or supported by an NHS Board in order to meet the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for practice assessment

Leadership:

- is open to those who will be working at an advanced level in leadership roles who are required to lead and advance practice within the policy context of health and social care. It has some flexibility with option modules and, depending on your choice of option modules, attendance at University may not be compulsory.

School Nursing:

- is aimed at nurses and midwives who wish to build on their experience and transfer their learning in order to develop the higher level of knowledge and skills required of a school nurse. Students need to be sponsored or supported by an NHS Board in order to meet the requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for practice assessment.

Format

This programme is driven by a philosophy that is student centered, progressive, process oriented and practice focused, and a blended approach to learning is adopted. Students will learn within a virtual environment (CampusMoodle) and apply the theoretical learning to their practice through a work based learning approach. Students will therefore have an opportunity to apply learning to their specific area of practice within contemporary healthcare service.

Depending on the route selected and the choice of optional modules, there will be some compulsory attendance at the University - for the clinical examination module and the prescribing element.

Placements and accreditation

Three of the routes are approved by the NMC to meet the requirements of being recorded as a district nurse (NMC 2001), or registered as a health visitor or school nurse on the NMC (2004) register. All five routes are accredited by the RCN.

Clinical Practice and Leadership routes are undertaken within your own place of work with the support of an identified practice facilitator.

This course is intended to provide an opportunity for students with no background in Philosophy to do advanced work in the subject and to obtain an Honours-level qualification in it. The course is open to those who already have an upper second first degree, and it may be taken on either a full-time basis (9 months) or a part-time basis (18 months). The first part of the programme aims to provide students with a knowledge of important topics in Philosophy and also an opportunity to develop essential skills to engage critically with those topics. In this part of the programme, students take four to five undergraduate modules. The second part of the programme aims to give students experience in applying research skills to a well-defined problem under the guidance of an expert in the area. To achieve this aim, students will prepare a written project based on independent research that is supervised by a member of staff.

Taught modules

Students take 80 credits of undergraduate modules during the course (four to five taught modules). Of these, 20 credits must be chosen from the following undergraduate first year, first term modules: Reason and Argument A (20 credits); Reason and Argument B (10 credits); Introduction to Ancient Philosophy B (10 credits). The remaining 60 credits must be chosen from our 20 credit year three undergraduate modules.

Students may choose their modules from a list of no fewer than three modules per term. This list will be published in advance of the beginning of the programme of study. The modules available for the year 2016/17 can be accessed below:

The Postgraduate Research Skills Seminar

The Postgraduate Research Skills Seminar is taught over two terms and is designed to provide students with a grounding in the skills necessary to contribute to contemporary philosophical debates. They attend at least one research seminar or colloquium every two weeks and maintain a reflective journal of their research experiences throughout the Autumn and Spring Terms. Tutorials are held every two weeks during which students discuss their responses to research events as recorded in their journals and provide mentoring and peer support.

The Projects

As an application of the knowledge, skills and experience gained in the previous stages of the course, the Project enables students to produce a sustained piece of critical writing on a topic of their choosing.

In the third term, full-time candidates undertake a 5,000 word Project on a topic chosen in consultation with their supervisor for submission at the end of the term.

Part-time candidates prepare a 2,000 word project during the Summer term of the first year for submission at the end of term and a 3,000 word project during the Summer term of the second year for submission at the end of term.
