Course content

The Master of Clinical Practice programme incorporates the Postgraduate Diploma Clinical Practice (Advanced Critical Care Practice) and Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Clinical Skills, and is only available to Trust employees appointed into the role of Advanced Critical Care Practitioner.

The Master of Clinical Practice reflects a unique focus on mastery of clinical (health care practice) theory and skills, and unlike other postgraduate programmes it requires an assessment of clinical competence on which the award is contingent. As a result, the breadth of knowledge introduced will be limited when compared to existing MSc or MA programmes within postgraduate studies, and focused instead on knowledge that is imperative for clinical practice. For these reasons this links postgraduate study to clinical work. The programme addresses the requirement to provide a Masters award that includes new clinical skills to prepare for a role as a new type of health professional. A substantial part of the programme is devoted to the development of specific skills and the remainder accommodates the acquisition of a bio-medical and practice related knowledge base required for the role. For this reason, research and other forms of evidence are integrated within the practitioner specific modules and within clinical practice.
