Course content

These programmes have been designed to facilitate you in the development and evidencing of the knowledge, skills and competencies required to work at an advanced level within your own professional setting.

You will be supported to develop a critical awareness of current problems and new insights at the forefront of your professional practice. You will examine care development and delivery from your own professional standpoint and take account of how other disciplines challenge and contribute to the quality of care delivery.

The PgC Enhanced Clinical Practice provides you with the opportunity to engage in a critical exploration of the Advanced Practice agenda in healthcare practice. There will be a particular emphasis on leadership skills coupled with modules designed to facilitate knowledge and skills in relation to assessment/examination skills, clinical reasoning and decision-making.

The PgD Enhanced Clinical Practice provides you with the above, plus year two commences with the Non-Medical Prescribing module, which should be considered core unless you have already completed the Prescribing qualification or work in a profession where Non-Medical Prescribing is not supported. In this case, you will be supported by the course team to choose two optional modules of study.
