Course content

This course has been specially created for practitioners, developing the in-depth knowledge, skills and confidence to manage complex cases within specific areas of practice.

The challenges faced by the NHS include an ageing workforce, rise in chronic conditions and complex comorbidities, recruitment difficulties, financial pressures, all combined with a rise in patient expectations. These challenges require new models of healthcare provision and a flexible workforce. As well as building capacity in the workforce, this includes the development of new and advanced roles and innovative attitudes toward the mix of skills in teams. Increasingly nurses and other registered practitioners take on roles that have traditionally been the domain of doctors.

The MSc Advanced Clinical Practice has been specially created for such practitioners and provides the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge, skills and confidence to autonomously manage complex cases within specific areas of practice.

Focusing on high-quality teaching with plenty of opportunity to develop clinical skills in a practical setting, the course provides an educational structure that links to relevant competency frameworks and supports the NHS Career Framework.

One of the key benefits of the course is that you will work alongside students from a variety of backgrounds and specialist fields, giving you the chance to share experiences and best practice.
