Course content

  • You will study this course through distance learning meaning you can study from your home, allowing you to stimulate the development of your own learning 
  • You can choose specific modules that interest you, so you can be sure that you'll learn exactly what you're passionate about 
  • This course will contribute to your continuing professional development as you'll enhance your knowledge in osteoporosis and falls management 
  • You will develop and improve your practice throughout the course as you become involved in higher level decision making and problem solving

This course is awarded as part of our MSc Advanced Practice course. This means you may either complete your studies at the Postgraduate Certificate level in Osteoporosis and Falls Management or continue your studies to masters level and gain either the Postgraduate Diploma or MSc in Advanced Practice.

If you are a practitioner working in osteoporosis, falls or fracture management and want to build on your existing level of health and social care, then you can gain an award related to your clinical practice. You will be encouraged to critically evaluate your work-based environment and consider a broad range of issues relating to the management of patients. This will help to enhance your clinical practice.

You will complete three modules, including two core modules and one module of your choice. This allows you to specialise in your interests meaning you can develop in an area that you're passionate about. Your optional module can even be taken from the MSc Advanced Practice to broaden your knowledge base.

After completing the course, you'll be able to apply the theoretical underpinning you'll have learnt to your clinical practice, which will help to benefit not only yourself but your colleagues and patients.

We’re proud to say that our courses are closely mapped against the health and social care sector. This ensures that our curriculum is up-to-date, providing you with the assurance that your learning is current and relevant. This does mean that we do have to respond to national changes such as government policy.

How you will learn

You will be expected to consider the state of fracture management (through bone health/osteoporosis/fracture and falls management services) in your own region. You will need to assess the current situation in this field and how things may be enhanced to improve services for your patients.

How you're assessed

You'll be assessed through written assignments, case histories, log books or poster presentation.

Careers

You will also develop the skills to ensure you deliver enhanced service improvement in your practice.
