The Specialist Community Public Health Nursing course equips nurses with the skills required to be innovative and creative when responding to client groups across different settings of public health practice.
The settings offered at University of Brighton include the health visiting and school nursing fields of practice.
Public health roles are diverse, and flexibility in the course allows students to gain appropriate knowledge and skills. Student and service need is considered and linked meaningfully with individual learning pathways. Use of a personal / professional development plan (PDP) from the initial interview, and throughout the course, helps to bring these elements together, providing links with the existing knowledge and skills framework requirements, and providing evidence of employability on completion of the course. The PDP also ensures that needs are assessed on an ongoing basis and adjustments made accordingly, particularly useful if an extended part-time route is taken.
Students are supported by a Practice Teacher (and mentors where appropriate) in practice placements within their employing trust. This provides excellent opportunities and support in application of learning in practice. An exciting variety of learning approaches are utilised in the course, accommodating a wide range of preferred learning styles. A period of consolidation of practice at the end of the course allows further opportunity for integration of theory and practice and development of the student's role.

Professional accreditation
Successful completion of the course means that graduates are enabled to meet the ten key areas of public health practice required for second level registration as a Specialist Community Public Health Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC 2004). Achievement of these proficiencies requires ability in assessing risk in complex situations; in developing effective relationships based on trust and openness; in working flexibly with other services in a range of settings; in dealing with conflicting priorities and ambiguous situations; and in knowing when to use, different and sometimes contradictory theories and perspectives.

Course structure
Students are allocated practice placements by their employing trust, and are assigned a practice teacher to support their learning in practice. Students undertake a period of alternative practice when they can spend a week in another context that is of demonstrable value to their role.
A variety of learning and teaching strategies are used including problem-based and work-based learning. You need to be highly motivated and be prepared to actively engage with all aspects of your learning.

Areas of study
A core module within the course relates to public health across the individual to population continuum. An innovative module facilitating work with marginalised groups, connected with the Community University Partnership Project may also be undertaken. An individualised approach to planning is taken with each student though a personal development plan and learning contracts that are agreed between the student, university and employer. Modules also allow students to focus their practice assignment work on areas of value to their role.
A central feature of these courses is to ensure shared learning between the community nursing specialities so that the benefits of developing intra-professional collaboration can be enhanced. Programmes have been designed to include modules in which learning is shared with students from other disciplines, and where possible, other professions.

This innovative, two-year, accelerated, problem-based-learning course provides the opportunity to study for an MSc in Occupational Therapy (Pre-registration) where students examine human occupation as an essential component of health and wellbeing. As well as a postgraduate diploma in occupational therapy, the course will prepare students for professional practice in the ever diversifying role of an occupational therapist. The degree benefits from sharing facilities and expertise with physiotherapy and podiatry course teams as well as joint learning events with students in medicine, social work and nursing. The School of Health Professions was rated 'excellent' by the Quality Assurance Agency.

Professional accreditation
This programme is classified as a pre-registration course, at postgraduate level, for those who already hold a bachelors degree in another subject. Successful completion of the professional elements of the programme leads to the award of a postgraduate diploma in Occupational Therapy, which carries eligibilty for registration as an occupational therapist with the Health Professions Council (HPC).

On successful completion of the research dissertation, additional to the professional elements, the award of master of science in Occupational Therapy (Pre-registration) is then awarded.

Course structure
The intensive programme runs over 45 weeks per year. It has a student-centred, problem-based learning philosophy. The structure maintains a balance between campus-based study and clinical practice. On campus, students work in small groups together with a tutor to address real-life occupational therapy problems or scenarios. In this way, all subjects and skills are integrated as in real life, thus students are able to develop problem-solving skills relevant to the practice of a modern occupational therapist. Various clinical placement settings provide the environment, educational support and role models to apply the principles and skills acquired in campus-based study to practice. Understanding the occupational nature of human health and wellbeing is also examined through student participation in various activities such as cooking, craft, horticulture, performing arts and pottery. Assessments provide various opportunities for feedback in essential professional skills including written critique, report writing, team working, presentation skills, and verbal/written presentation of intervention. On completion of the programme successful students will graduate with a postgraduate diploma in occupational therapy which allows them to apply to the HPC for licence to practice. The MSc degree is awarded to students on submission of a research dissertation undertaken throughout the second year.

Areas of study
You will examine topics such as theories of occupation and occupational science (causes of occupational problems); occupation related to population health; clinical reasoning; occupational therapy process (assessment, treatment, and evaluation); occupational therapy skills (creative, productive, leisure and daily living); research methods and professional issues.

The MSc in Public Health course has been designed within a multi-professional, modular framework that draws on a wide range of disciplines.

The course combines a set of four compulsory core modules (Principles and Practice of Public Health, Epidemiology, Essential Statistics in Health and Medical Research, and Research Methods and Critical Appraisal) with a range of optional modules (eg Health Protection, Nutrition in Public Health, International Health etc) which allows students to focus on areas relevant to their work and professional interests. The research dissertation module provides an excellent opportunity to integrate study-based learning with a work-based research project improving students' competencies and skills to enhance their long-term career in public health.

The course delivers a solid grounding in public health theory and practice to provide a mechanism for analysing and instituting change in practice and to support public health leadership and registration. This is particularly pertinent in a challenging time of change and the course addresses recent moves in responsibility for the delivery of public health programmes. Teaching sessions are delivered by academicians and practitioners who are active in the field. The inter-professional background of the course participants fosters an environment in which occupational experiences are shared and a wider understanding of multidisciplinary public health issues is gained.
