About the course

Effective clinical risk management is crucial to the delivery of high-quality services and is central in managing the care and treatment of service users. This skills-based course provides the opportunity for students from a multidisciplinary and multiagency background to appraise existing legislative frameworks, policies and procedures, while learning new ways of working in the area.

  • You will explore clinical practice relating to the management of clinical risk and the safeguarding of service users, carers and staff.

Teaching and assessment

In order to ensure flexibility, you will be taught through a blended learning approach. Teaching will consist of synchronous and asynchronous seminars, lectures and tutorials (individual and group), provided by leading authorities in the field. All sessions and tutorials can be provided online using Microsoft Teams although face-to-face meetings might be possible where required subject to current infection prevention safeguards.

You will be assessed through submission of a case study. Your module specification/course handbook will provide full details of the assessment criteria applying to your course.
