Course Summary

This course has been designed in consultation with policy advisors, clinicians, students and patient representatives. We recognise the importance of service user and carer perspectives when it comes to defining a flexible approach to practice experience and in advancing core and area specific levels of clinical competence.

You will explore further the need to integrate service users and carers views into policy and practice development. And you will develop the confidence to embrace and promote professional leadership - so that you can contribute meaningfully to the modernisation and integration of health and social care delivery. MSc Advanced Practice offers three exit points: MSc, PgD and PgC.

You will find yourself fully supported and yet challenged, we base our learning and teaching on the following principals: engaged learning; divergent thinking; flexible, inclusive, accessible learning; broad and deep learning; global learning; real world problem solving; entrepreneurship; responsible leadership and professionalism.

This course is designed to give you the opportunity to develop key academic skills in a practical setting ensuring that your ability to operate within the health and social care environment is enhanced. You will be asked to develop leadership skills, learn from assessment in the form of evidence based practice and demonstrate that you can reflect on changes that could be put in to place having considered global evidence.

Graduates are ready to lead inter-professional teams and help deliver practice development, design and deliver programmes of education and become change agents within their healthcare settings.
