Course content

Designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required of the future advanced practitioner, this contemporary and dynamic programme continuously responds to the changes in healthcare theory and practice. This course is a part time programme open to practitioners registered with the NMC, HCPC or GPhC and working in primary / community care settings looking to advance their level of practice.

Mapped against the four pillars of advanced practice, throughout the programme you will be provided with the opportunity to put theory into practice. At the point of completion, you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of research methods, research ethics, and governance to critically analyse, safely use, share, and apply research findings to promote and inform best practice.
You will be taught by academic, and where applicable practice staff, who bring the latest pedagogic and practice research findings into the classroom, practice suites, and practice learning environment, providing you with a set of skills and opportunities that will allow you to develop and deliver safe and effective care to a diverse range of people.
