Course summary

Course description

This course is for experienced, registered health and care practitioners delivering advanced clinical practice, who wish to learn advanced skills in the management of episodes of care for their client group. It can be studied either as a standard masters degree or via an apprenticeship route.

Paediatric Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs) work with babies, children, young people (CYP) from 0 to 18 years of age and their families in a range of settings across primary and secondary care. Paediatric ACPs can undertake acute or ongoing assessment of health and social needs, manage children with complex needs and act as senior decision makers.

The course encompasses the four pillars of advanced practice: clinical practice, leadership and management, education and research. On successful completion of the programme, you’ll demonstrate the core advanced practice capabilities and paediatric clinical competence. The course includes a clinical leadership module, which ensures that service design, delivery and patient safety remain at the forefront of your clinical working.

ACPs working with children and young people will learn the knowledge, skills and behaviours to become clinical leaders of paediatric practice and to play a pioneering role in multidisciplinary teams. As an ACP, you’ll be a dynamic practitioner making advanced decisions about practice, leadership and management.

The programme content is delivered by a range of expert practitioners and experienced academics. A dynamic combination of underpinning knowledge and supervised clinical practice will ensure that you have the capabilities to work as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner on successful completion of the programme.
