Course content

Healthcare professionals are developing new skills to meet the needs of growing numbers of people who live with complex and long-term conditions. Your learning will be based upon the NHS four-pillar framework for advanced clinical practitioners: clinical practice, leadership and management, education, and research. To achieve this, you will develop advanced health assessment skills and professional expertise in order to work as an autonomous practitioner. With your expert knowledge, complex decision-making skills and clinical reasoning you will be able to apply this knowledge to your clinical setting. Your learning will be client-centred and clinically focused, helping you develop the essential skills required by an advanced clinical practitioner working in acute, primary or secondary care settings, or for any organisation where advanced diagnostic skills are required. You will also undertake a dissertation, where you will explore a topic relevant to your area of practice, refining your expertise and underlining your leadership potential to employers.
