About the course:
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.
