Course content

As part of a suite of courses covering Maternal and Child Health at University of the West of Scotland (UWS), study on the MSc, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate certificate in Maternal & Child Health in Advanced Neonatal/ Paediatric Practice will focus on advanced neonatal practice or advanced paediatric practice.

Advanced practice is about a level of practice, rather than a specific role or title, but is applicable across both practice and professional contexts. This course aims to develop highly knowledgeable and skilled postgraduate neonatal/paediatric practitioners who wish to further progress their knowledge, skills and competence relevant to advanced neonatal or paediatric practice.
A key feature is the multi-professional nature of shared learning to advanced practice education. Shared learning is advocated as a way of breaking down professional boundaries and aids in developing a more cohesive approach to practice. Therefore, some of the modules are shared between neonatal and paediatric students, with subject specific learning taking place together; students will then be expected to contextualise this learning and apply it to their own specific practice settings.
