Course content

The Postgraduate Certificate in Enhanced Clinical Practice allows nurses and allied health practitioners who need to advance their practice within their area of clinical practice and have the appropriate support to do so. This course will enable experienced healthcare practitioners to acquire advanced skills in relation to patient assessment, examination, diagnosis and management.

Pharmacists or other allied health professionals may consider this course as a supplement to their non-medical prescribing programme and paramedics may be interested to enhance their skills, much in the same way as nurses.

Enhanced Clinical Practice aims to maximise your clinical practice experiences to help the learning process. In a clinical environment you will benefit from the expertise of an experienced Practice Supporter.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT

Instruction takes place in the form of classroom based sessions that include lectures, seminars, discussions and small group work. To augment this, students will learn practical skills in the clinical skills laboratories.

The emphasis of the teaching and learning strategy will be student-centred and aimed at utilising and maximizing their experiences to assist the learning process. The diversity of experience and professional disciplines enables the use of a variety of approaches to teaching and learning.

Students will be required to be supported in the clinical environment by an appropriately experienced Practice Supporter.

Summative assessment will utilise of a variety of methods including Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) and written papers (case study, essay, reflective video analysis).
