The Enhanced Professional Midwifery Practice course aims to enable registered midwives to build on and enhance their midwifery knowledge, clinical reasoning and decision making skills. The resulting abilities of independent thinking and autonomous practice are highly desirable for midwives seeking career development opportunities.

Key Features of Enhanced Professional Midwifery Practice

Teaching and Employability:

- work-based education enables midwives to engage in theoretical analysis of practice in the workplace

- teaching team has a wealth of experience in work-based learning

- builds on the success of the existing Enhanced Professional Practice programme which has offered an excellent learning experience to all students

- close professional and clinical links with clinical colleagues and senior midwifery colleagues

- contributes to a culture of scholarship and enhanced practice in clinical areas

Enhanced Professional Midwifery Practise is a work-based modular postgraduate degree specifically geared towards the needs of practising and registered midwives. It is practice focused but also supports the student to develop skills in reflection and critical thinking.

Work-based learning is a student-centred approach where the student directs their own learning objectives so they reflect on what is important to their roles in their practice, and use these practice issues to drive forward their learning within the modules.

Midwives completing the Enhanced Professional Midwifery Practice programme will have developed as autonomous learners who can think more critically and apply theory, experience and academic literature to the development and enhancement of their practice.

They will have gained not only academic and enhanced clinical skill, but also a number of transferable skills. This can only be of benefit to the midwife in terms of employability, the maternity service of the Health Board in which they work, and ultimately the standards of care for mothers and babies.

Modules

Modules on the Enhanced Professional Midwifery Practice programme typically include:

Starting Your Professional Development

Developing Expertise in the Supervision of Midwives

Leadership and Professional issues in Midwifery

Developing Expertise in the Supervision of Midwives (CPD)

Professional Practice in Sexual & Reproductive Health

The distinctive features of the Masters programme are its 600 practice hours and its focus on the four pillars of advanced practice. This means that the programme produces practitioners who are able to think at a high level in practice, but who also underpin their practice with a high level of scholarship. The programme therefore provides a first-class opportunity for post-registration learning in practice.

Students will be supported by a medical or clinical mentor over the two taught years, a value-added feature of the advanced clinical practice course that is not available in a traditional master’s course. Further, the development of a practice portfolio over the taught elements of the programme demonstrate the student’s capacity to function at an autonomous level in practice, while also illustrating the ability to consider the complex needs of their patients/clients. This again is generally not a feature of a traditional master’s course, and allows students to review and apply enhanced knowledge in practice as part of their clinical roles.

In order to facilitate this, applicants to the advanced clinical practice course will be required to have a responsible role in practice and to either be working as an autonomous practitioner, or to be able to secure a trainee advanced practitioner role.

The programme team work in partnership with the University Health Board and Wales Ambulance Service Trust to select candidates appropriate for this course interviewing applicants.

Key Course Features

-The course features a programme structure based on a 50% theory and 50% practice divide in programme hours
-Assessment of practice learning through a portfolio of evidence allows the student to demonstrate their progression in practice

The programme aims to enable experienced professionals to:
-Develop a systematic and critical knowledge and understanding of their specialist field of practice.
-Develop a critical awareness of current problems, gaining new insights at the forefront of their area of advanced practice that enable further strategic development of practice and practice knowledge.
-Enable practitioners to inform, enhance and develop their competency within their field of practice.
-Demonstrate advanced scholarship in their subject area through the planning and execution of level 7 enquiry.

What Will You Study?

Having studied 60 credits in year one, students may exit with a Postgraduate Certificate. Year one comprises Clinical Assessment in Advanced Practice and Non-Medical Prescribing OR Clinical Assessment in Advanced Practice, Clinical Pharmacology for Advanced Practice and a negotiated/optional module (for non-prescribing practitioners) for the Advanced Clinical Practice generic route.

For the Therapies route students will study; Assessment And Intervention, Clinical Evaluation and either Clinical Pharmacology for Advanced Practice or a negotiated/optional module.

Students wishing to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma will have studied 120 credits, and will have completed 60 credits in year one plus 60 credits from year two. All students will have studied Research Methods and Advancing Clinical Practice plus either a negotiated module or an optional module. In this way, students will have a structured approach that meets their professional needs, but which allows shared learning across disciplines to take place. As the students are practitioners working in a multi-professional environment in clinical practice, this framework of common elements with the opportunity for optional modules builds on multi-professional learning, but promotes the development of the students’ professional practice within their own speciality.

In year three all students will study the Dissertation. This is a module that is core to all health masters programmes and which allows a variety of approaches to the final project. Within the advanced practice curriculum, it is expected that students will direct their enquiry to a topic important to them as practitioners, and to which they will bring a level of enquiry that demonstrates, and is related to, their position as an advanced practitioner.

The information listed in this section is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal academic framework review, so may be subject to change.

Career Prospects

On successful completion of the Advanced Clinical Practice/Advanced Clinical Practice (Therapies) course, students will be eligible to apply for advanced practice roles in a variety of settings, and in Wales, students will be eligible to use the title ‘Advanced’ on completion of the MSc. As it is validated by the relevant PSRBs, on completion of the Non-Medical Prescribing module, students will be able to record this qualification with their professional body (NMC, HCPC, GPhC).

Other admission requirements

To be accepted on to the programme candidates must:
-Hold current registration with a professional statutory body pertaining to their area of advanced practice.
-Have a minimum of two years full time equivalent post-registration clinical experience.
-Be employed in a clinical role with a high level of autonomy or Be able to secure a placement to the above for a minimum of two days per week or Be in a Trainee Advanced Practitioner role.
-Have a Designated Supervising Medical Practitioner (DSMP) (for those students undertaking Non-Medical Prescribing and Clinical Assessment in Advanced Practice modules) and have mentorship support during their practice placement from their employing organisation.
-Obtain a satisfactory DBS certificate.
-*Candidates without a full honours degree at 2:2 and above will be required to submit a 1,500 word essay on a topic chosen by the admissions team as part of the induction process. This will be assessed using the level 6 academic criteria (Appendix I) and must demonstrate achievement at 50% or above for successful admission to the programme. Alternatively, recent successful completion of an appropriate level 6 module such as Research Methods, Non-Medical Prescribing at level 6 or Preparing for Master’s Level Study will allow admission to the programme, subject to programme team agreement.
