MSc Lymphoedema Care

Course Description

Studying this award will provide you with the knowledge, understanding and skills in the principles and practice of holistic palliative/end of life care and you will have the opportunity to critically analyse local and national influences on care and their implications for service delivery.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (2008) ratified proposals to make nursing an all-graduate profession which will come into effect as early as 2013. This historic move for nursing in the United Kingdom means that 'the minimum academic award for pre-registration nursing programmes will be degree'. Therefore, as seen with the development of Project 2000/RN Dip HE several years ago, student nurses qualified with a Diploma, in comparison to a Certificate. The demand for post-graduate modules will almost certainly increase.

Undertaking each of the modules within this course will allow you the opportunity to cover a variety of skills important for your development as a qualified health and/or social care individual, in a way which helps you to bring together theory and practice. As a graduate nurse you will reflect a knowledgeable and enterprising approach to health and social care and adopt a critical, analytical and imaginative approach to your practice.

This Masters Programme will equip you, as a health and social care professional, with the necessary skills and knowledge required to ensure the highest possible standards of lymphoedema care are provided to people with a life limiting progressive illness, including those with a malignant or non-malignant disease.

This Masters Programme also aims to enable practitioners to demonstrate expertise and advanced skills in the management of a case-load and/or healthcare staff in the support of people with lymphoedema.

This will be achieved by:

Enhancing and critically evaluating the quality and continuity of lymphoedema care;
Developing a reflective, expert professional who is able to facilitate critical inquiry and evaluation, challenging value systems in order to promote person-centred best practice for people who have lymphoedema care needs;
Expanding the boundaries of professional practice as a result of increased theoretical knowledge;
Developing critical insight and skills of evaluation of health and social policy frameworks and inter-agency collaboration required for the management of people requiring lymphoedema care;
Preparing individuals to display mastery within the role of leading and developing the complex practice within lymphoedema services, synthesising teaching, supervision, clinical audit and contributing to research/evidence based practice;
Critically evaluating the new generation of equalities legislation that is placing greater responsibility upon health care providers to promote equality and respect diversity.
