Course summary

Advanced Clinical Practice is for experienced healthcare practitioners in hospital and community settings. The course builds on your existing skills and experience to enable you to lead and support the development and delivery of advanced clinical practice. Module outcomes are mapped against the Knowledge and Skills Framework and the NHS England Advanced Clinical Practice framework so NHS employees can identify learning to support career progression.

Description

This course is suitable for nurses and allied healthcare professionals currently employed in clinical practice, in any healthcare discipline. Applicants are expected to be working in an advanced clinical practice role before commencing this postgraduate course.

The course is relevant for qualified healthcare practitioners in the community or acute care setting including emergency care, critical care, chronic disease management and other specialist areas.

Course purpose

This programme is intended for experienced healthcare clinical practitioners who are seeking to advance their practice, enhance their knowledge of research and evidence-based healthcare, and develop their roles.

Course format and assessment

A typical academic year for students of this course might have approximately 150 hours (25% of total hours) in a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, project supervision and workshops, and approximately 450 hours (75% of total hours) of independent study such as preparing for scheduled sessions, follow-up work, wider reading, and completion of assessment task or revision. This will vary according to the optional modules chosen. Students are expected to undertake on average 14.5 hours of self-study per week.

Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.

Students are assessed through a combination of coursework and examinations with emphasis on clinical competency assessment in advanced clinical practice. This can include written assignments such as essays, portfolios and dissertations. In addition, some modules will require students to undertake a presentation as part of the module assessment. A small number of modules are assessed by an exam such as OSCEs (objective structured clinical examination) or a computer based assessment.

All students will also have to complete a clinical competency assessment document based on the NHS England 2017 ACP Multi-Professional Framework. The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change.
