Course content

This master's course provides professionals with a forum to encourage the synthesis of experience, knowledge and new learning and to debate contemporary issues. This is within a collaborative, multi-professional community, taught and online. The course encourages critical thinking and forward planning in all areas of health care, in the UK and internationally. You will have the opportunity to focus on a number of key areas: Expert Practice; Professionalism; Leadership & Management; Education and Practice; Service Development and Change, including legal, ethical, cultural and societal issues.

All professionals are now expected to undertake skills that were not part of their initial education to meet the needs of a more flexible approach to health care provision. New roles are being developed and the minimal level for academic, management, research and consultant posts requires that all professionals have continued their academic education to master's level.
