Course summary

Overview

The health and social care needs of the population are changing globally, including patterns of ill health. The delivery of Health and Social Care supports integrated services focusing on prevention, early intervention and enablement to support people to live well for as long as possible in their own homes and communities. Health and social care professionals working in integrated teams, play a critical part in realising this vision. These roles have developed and expanded to meet new challenges and this Masters course has therefore been designed to support you to gain skills, confidence and knowledge to work effectively at an advanced level.

Working in partnership with clinical experts, patients, health and social care providers, this course is designed for any health and social care professional working in a clinical, education, management or research role who is keen to challenge their thinking, gain new skills and make a difference to their practice.

We welcome applications from those about to complete pre-registration degree courses, those post-registration health and social care professionals working in practice, or those studying as part of other post-graduate level courses. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.

Course objectives

If you’re a health or social care professional, this course aims to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to advance both your career and your field of contemporary care.

After graduating you’ll be able to:

  • display an extensive understanding of advanced practice central themes, including leadership, facilitation of learning, research/development and advanced professional practice, and the underpinning principles
  • apply critical reasoning and argument skills to support evidence-based practice as part of health and social care delivery
