Course content

The Advanced Practice in Healthcare courses enable experienced health care professionals from varied clinical backgrounds to develop their skills and knowledge to an advanced level of practice.

Advanced Practice in Health Care has been offered at Swansea University since 1992. It is continually refined to ensure it remains at the forefront of contemporary practice.

Modules are designed to enable the clinician to develop knowledge and skills essential to the role of an advanced practitioner i.e. enhanced assessment, diagnostic and disease management skills. Students may also undertake studies for non-medical prescribing.

This course enables students to develop their critical and creative thinking skills in relation to clinical practice to an advanced level. Additionally, they are able to develop their knowledge and skills in their roles as researchers, educators, managers and leaders.
