The role of pharmacists in the emergency department offers an exciting opportunity to work in a new field of practice. Read more
The role of pharmacists in the emergency department offers an exciting opportunity to work in a new field of practice.

Our six-month Advanced Clinical Skills short course enables trainee pharmacy practitioners to independently evaluate, assess and recommend or prescribe medicines for patients who present to emergency departments.

This will allow junior and senior medical staff to attend to more urgent medical patients in a clinical setting and aims to decrease waiting times for patients with minor injuries. Research has shown that hospital pharmacists with additional skills in independent prescribing and advanced clinical assessment could manage up to 35.7% of patients presenting to emergency departments.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be able to manage emergency department patients in addition to working as part of a multidisciplinary emergency team.

Our course confers 30 postgraduate (Level 7) credits upon completion and can be taken as a standalone course by pharmacists who are already non-medical prescribers. If you are not already a non-medical prescriber, you can take this course before starting our Independent Prescribing short course. Completing both of these courses within two years of registering will lead to a PGCert in Advanced Specialist Training in Emergency Medicine.

Aims

This course aims to:
-Provide you with the skills to independently evaluate and assess patients who present to the emergency department
-Enable you to independently recommend and/or prescribe appropriate medicines for patients who present to the emergency department
-Enhance your knowledge and skills in the evaluation and application of knowledge of best evidence-based practice to implement appropriate assessment and care for the emergency patient

Career opportunities

Our course offers career progression for experienced hospital pharmacists to manage patients in the emergency department, in addition to working as a member of the multidisciplinary emergency department team.

Strengthening Health/Health Systems in Fragile/Conflict-affected states

In countries affected by political and social conflict, particularly protracted crises, health and well-being of displaced and vulnerable populations are at high risk: health systems have deteriorated and emergency assistance provided by humanitarian organisations often constitutes the main source of care. Decisions made in the early post conflict period can often set the long-term direction of development for the health system. Issues and questions around legitimacy, coherence and capacity of new governmental authorities and the changing roles of different actors need to be understood and analysed. Hence the content will critically assess approaches to health and social sector reconstruction in specific contexts.

This module aims to provide participants with an overview of the current challenges and policy debates in local/national/global responses to meeting the health needs of populations affected by or recovering from instablity and conflict. Through critical analysis, accepted theory and practice and alternative approaches. frameworks explored and foundations for good practice identified.

Content includes:

CONTEXT
-nature and causes of conflict: political economy of war/globalisation/ethnicity
-international humanitarian system - current issues and trends

IMPACT

After the course

Students are all expected to proceed to ITT and subsequent teaching careers in Secondary Modern Foreign Languages (MFL).

"I am currently teaching a lot of French in my Secondary School (The Heathland School). I teach nine lessons a week to students from KS3 and KS4 (this year taking Y11 for the first time). I teach classes in Year 7, Year 8, Year 9 and Year 11, so a range of ages. Without the French Extension Course, I 100 per cent would never had found the time or effort to improve my French to an ability to teach it. Therefore, without it, I definitely wouldn't be teaching it as much as I do now (if at all). I believe that it is a great way for trainee teachers to get themselves another language to be able to teach (at least to KS3)." Lewis Dodge, The Heathland School. French Extension Course 2009. PGCE St. Mary's University College 2010/11.

Quote from external assessor

"My opinion about the London Metropolitan University French Extension course remains totally unchanged: it is a highly effective, high quality motivational course. The course team does not rest on its laurels. Directors, tutors and language assistants strive to offer students a better and better product. The team's clarity of purpose, its organised approach to the implementation of the plans, its caring monitoring of students' progress, achievements and needs, its good relationships with the students (as a group and as individuals), its willingness to hear and to respond to needs, all contributes to a course of high quality". Michèle Deane, external assessor

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.
