Course content

The course is suitable for registered paramedics who wish to enhance their clinical skills and knowledge. This award facilitates the development of the key skills and competencies required for advanced patient assessment and injury or illness management.

You will need to complete the three required modules in order to gain the Graduate Diploma in Enhanced Paramedic Skills with each module due to run in September and February.

As the modules run separately, you can tailor the programme to suit your needs by controlling how long it takes you to gain the final award. The maximum length of time you will need to commit to this programme is two years. It is 18 months part time or 12 months full time commitment at our Uxbridge campus.

This course will enable you to build upon clinical experience and advance your academic standing.

On this course, you will enhance your professional decision-making and critical judgment as well as develop a body of knowledge that will influence paramedic practice.

The course addresses developments in clinical practice and education and therefore aims to integrate theory and practice. This integration, along with the inter-professional (IPL) nature of the course, enables paramedics to translate the philosophy of care into practice, working within and collaborating with inter-professional teams. The modules taken as part of this award are also undertaken by nurses and other health care professionals enhancing the IPL nature of the programme.

The flexibility of choice of the two constrained option modules will allow you to extend your knowledge and skills relating to your work place, leading to innovative approaches to practice, enhanced confidence and decision making skills.

The course team has a wide range of clinical experience and research interests; this includes advanced practice, patient physical assessment, management of long term conditions, urgent care and critical care.
