Combine expert clinical skills with research, education and clinical leadership. Work innovatively on a one to one basis with individuals as well as part of a wider health and social care team.
Advanced Clinical Practitioners manage defined episodes of clinical care independently, from beginning to end, providing care and treatment from the time an individual first presents through to the end of the episode, which may include admission, referral or discharge or care at home. They carry out their full range of duties in relation to individuals’ physical and mental healthcare and in acute, primary, urgent and emergency settings (including hospitals, general practice, individuals’ homes, schools and prisons, and in the public, independent, private and charity sectors).
As an Advanced Clinical Practitioner, you will:
Have a high level of autonomy and freedom to make decisions about how people should be cared for a treated and act in complex and unpredictable situations
Use person-centred approaches to taking an individual’s detailed history and examine body systems to help you make a diagnosis
Select, undertake or request a range of appropriate clinical tests and assessments to help you make a diagnosis
Initiate and evaluate a range of interventions, which may include for example prescribing of medicines, therapies and care
Apply a skillset that may have traditionally been the remit of other disciplines so that you can enhance the care and experience of individuals
Analyse, interpret and act on the results of clinical tests and assessments and formulate a plan of care, which may include admission to a care setting such as a hospital, referral to settings for another opinion or discharge from services
Drive service improvements, educate others and provide consultancy services within your scope of practice
Undertake research activities to develop new knowledge and undertake audit to evaluate and further develop your area of expertise to improve care and services for the people you are treating
The format of this course is condensed compared to the usual 3 year MSc format for postgraduate study. To enable success within this time frame, you will be required to spend a minimum 40% of your time on “off the job training” for the full duration of the course including Christmas, Easter and Summer periods with time to take annual leave factored into the programme. The timetable will be made up of:
Attending the University on a one day a week basis for an average of 6 hours teaching
Scheduled self-directed learning activities including use of the Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle)
Engaging in a minimum of 6 hours a week supernumerary Protected Learning Time for practice based learning across the calendar year.
This will be tracked across the course to ensure that this takes place.
This style of course is ideal for developing as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner. You will have the benefits of highly relevant education that will impact immediately on the care that you give within your work place. You will have the opportunity of planned time out of practice to learn and develop in the university alongside like-minded people who also want to innovate and push the frontiers of clinical practice forward. To complement this you will have dedicated time in the work environment to apply your new knowledge, skills and behaviours in a real context supported by nominated supervisors, experienced clinical colleagues and your managers. This dedicated package extends beyond what is currently available for most students embarking on advanced clinical practice education.
