Course Description

The development of the role of healthcare practitioner is one of the ways in which the Government plans to modernise the National Health Service and improve the quality of healthcare. Healthcare practitioners add a new dimension to healthcare. Capable of working autonomously with high levels of skills, healthcare practitioners work as part of interdisciplinary healthcare teams, complementing existing provision and improving patient care. This course is designed to help experienced healthcare practitioners take on this challenging role in primary healthcare settings. It provides additional theoretical and clinical practice education and training, not addressed in initial healthcare education. This is at an appropriate level to support the expansion of practice and the development of a variety of new skills. Modules include: - Clinical Sciences and Clinical Skills for Advanced Practitioners 1 and 2 - Consultation, Communication and Change - Mental Health Problems in Primary Care for Advanced Practitioners - Policy and Advanced Professional Practice - Methods for Inquiry - Dissertation Theory assessment for each module takes place through a variety of means including essays, case studies, critical analysis of practice and reports. Modules with a clinical component must be passed in both theory and practice. The practice component of the Clinical Sciences and Clinical Skills modules are assessed by the clinical educator, based on evidence of the achievement of competencies and reflections recorded in a practice portfolio. You are expected to find a suitable General Practitioner (GP) practice where a designated GP educator will provide clinical support throughout the course, with the focus on developing clinical skills. Completion of the Advanced Healthcare Practitioner MSc course often leads to roles within the ambulance service and primary care, providing initial assessment for patients with undifferentiated and undiagnosed presentations. This course is eligible for funding from the Yorkshire and the Humber Strategic Health Authority. Detailed guidance on such funding arrangements is available in their Guide to Funding for Education and Training. We hope you're interested in what you've seen and want to apply to join us.
