Our specialist course will provide you with the learning and resources you need to become a clinical leader in your community.

What's covered in the course?

We’ll expand your knowledge, as well as the way you think, helping you to reflect, solve problems and think independently, all of which are essential attributes in this challenging but highly rewarding career.

We take a half theory/half practice approach on this course to ensure you gain important knowledge as well as first-hand experience. There will also be an extended period of practice to allow you to develop your skills by participating in vital management of real-life situations and challenges.

You’ll learn to apply the skills and qualities of a specialist practitioner to meet the needs of clients, communities and purchasers, as well as work in a team, creating strong working partnerships.

You’ll discover how to assess the professional, ethical and legal context of the specialist practitioner role, as well as evaluate sources of information to support the assessment and management of long term conditions, the provision of inter-professional palliative care, and effective and efficient case management.

Enhancing employability skills

This course is intended to enhance your career prospects and enable you to progress onto more senior public health jobs at either operational, policy or commissioning levels.

On successful completion of the programme, your Specialist Practitioner qualification will be recorded by the NMC and entered on NMC register.
