- Description -
The programme builds on a practitioner's existing skills and experience to enable them to lead and support the development and subsequent delivery of evidence-based practice. Students study core modules in evidence-based decision making and healthcare research, together with clinical leadership and assessment modules taken as compulsory. Students then devise a specific programme of study by choosing options to meet their needs and interests.
The programme includes a 10-day period of specially arranged clinical observation in the UK (for example: nurse-led clinics, specialist nurse practice, etc.).
- Evidence-based Decision-making
- Evaluation and Measurement for Healthcare Practice
- Developing Professional Leadership
- Advanced Assessment Skills for Non-medical Practitioners
All students will be required to complete a dissertation that may take a number of different formats; these include options particularly suited to nurses from overseas.
- Course purpose -
The aim of this programme is to enable students who are qualified healthcare practitioners to acquire advanced understanding, knowledge and skills to deliver, manage, develop and research healthcare practice and education in a setting outside the UK.
- Course format and assessment -
The MSc programme will be examined using a combination of written assignments and examinations.
Students completing this programme would be expected to work in specialised and autonomous roles in clinical practice and research; this includes working in a variety of clinical care settings including hospitals and the community. Other areas of employment would include educational roles in clinical and university settings and roles in governmental departments developing policy and governmental initiatives. This programme also may provide a pathway towards more advanced academic study ie MPhil or PhD.
