Key Facts:
On our Advanced Practice course you need to relate the content of each module to your own speciality, whether you are a nurse, midwife or AHP. In addition provision for practitioners from some specialities is built into the programme. For example primary care, palliative care and children and neonates. Our Advance Health Care programme is designed for individuals who are working in health care. Your main remit may involve research and other non-clinical roles.

This multi-professional, clinically focused course provides an internationally recognised Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma and Master’s award. The course is suitable and relevant to all practitioners who want to retain a clinical role but may also like to have more involvement with policy developments. The programme can be followed on a part or full time basis. It can incorporate a prescribing qualification for some practitioners who wish to but do not already prescribe. As a graduate from the programme you will continue to develop your practitioner careers. Many of our graduates have been promoted during or on completion of the course and some have taken non-medical consultant posts.

Advanced clinical skill development is one of the key features of this postgraduate programme. This enables you to increase your autonomy in patient assessment, diagnosis, planning care with the patient, prescribing of treatment and evaluation of outcomes. You will be supported in identifying practice learning skills that are required for your own speciality throughout the course. Student and practice facilitator(s) will discuss and write your own action plan so that learning is directly focused on the needs of your patients and the service being provided.

A further key quality is the development of deeper knowledge and understanding of populations related to your speciality. This will help you to assess the needs of the population and develop your involvement with service design, reconfiguration, development and delivery. This supports advanced practitioners to have greater confidence and involvement in wider debates within the health care arena and involvement with the formation of local and national policy.

Entry Requirements:
These courses are suitable for senior professionals employed in primary or secondary care.
You will need to:
• Be a registered practitioner, currently in practice.
• Have three to five years professional experience is required in your speciality and a first degree or evidence of recent professionally related study at diploma or degree level.
• Have studied Research Methods at level 6 (degree level) or Physiology at level 5 (diploma level) or Prescribing (level 6). Alternatively, you may need to complete some pre-course written work.
• 150 study hours will be required to complete the on-line research and physiology access reading and essay’.

Course overview:
The course is aimed at senior practitioners including Allied Health Professionals and nurses or midwives who are involved with hands-on patient services who wish to further develop their careers. Its an established, dynamic programme with the content adjusted each year to meet current health priorities and cohort needs. The programme is renowned for providing excellent tutorial support to ensure students can relate module content to their individual practice setting.

Course structure:
Our courses are as flexible as possible to help you find the option that best suits your personal and professional commitments. You can choose to study for a Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) or a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) and then continue your studies with the Master’s (MSc), either through full, part-time or modular study, depending on which is most convenient.
If you have a first degree and are keen to take your studies further, but feel that a MSc is too much of a commitment, you can choose to take a single module in the subject that interests you (see modules listed under the individual course descriptions). Choose from a range of optional modules offered across the Faculty.

These can only run if selected by a minimum of eight students. Please note that, normally, modules related to Advanced Health Assessment and Advanced Practice cannot be taken as stand-alone modules.

Assessment:
For the PgDip, we use a wide range of continuous assessments, including essays, reports, practice documents and presentations. The Advanced Practice module will be assessed by your practice facilitator and monitored by the University. The Prescribing module has several assessments required by the NMC including OSCEs and an examination. For the MSc part of the programme you will need to carry out research for your Master’s dissertation.

Employability:
All students are seconded from their own practice setting and return on completion. The majority are appointed at a more senior grade with their existing employer or are promoted into a new role.
