Course content

If you are a practitioner working in an extended role or at an advanced practice level in your clinical field, this course is designed to help you develop your practice. You can tailor course content to reflect your evolving scope of practice, individual development needs and service requirements.

You critically evaluate theoretical perspectives and relevant research to help inform and underpin your clinical decision-making and develop your ability to work collaboratively across professional boundaries.

The course improves your independent and active learning ability, so you can

  • advance your knowledge, understanding and skills
  • review and enhance your own and others practice
  • develop your management of complex issues and problems
  • lead practice developments

It also supports and enables you to work towards developing a profile that satisfies professional body requirements for advanced practice (for UK practitioners) and statutory requirements for continuing professional development (CPD). This may also meet the requirements of advanced practice in other countries, which increases your employability and career potential. It is a requirement for all students to have a tripartite agreement with employer support to undertake the course. You must be in a role where there is an opportunity to practice advanced skills under the guidance and mentorship of someone appropriately qualified.
