Course content

Advances in medical care and technology now mean that many more children are living with complex health care needs and life limiting illness. This MSc offers a taught programme of study that sets out to nurture emerging and innovative professionals working and caring for children and young people with complex health needs and supporting families. It will meet the increasing demand for a postgraduate qualification in Caring for Children and Young People with Complex Health Needs, explicitly focused on interdisciplinary learning and research, delivered flexibly through a blended format of online and face-to-face learning.

The aim of the programme is to provide high-level knowledge and skills training and education to those tasked with working together in caring for children and young people with complex health needs in a hospital and community setting. This Masters degree will be of value to those working with and for children, including health care professionals, allied-health professionals, as well as public officials, NGOs, social workers and support providers.
