MSc in Advanced and Specialist Healthcare Practice
The Modular Programme in Advanced and Specialist Healthcare Practice is a modular, M-level, programme which is designed to meet the career-long professional development needs of pharmacists and a range of other health practitioners who are interested in enhancing their clinical and practice expertise to support their development for advanced and senior roles within their respective health economies and systems.
Participants will enrol on discrete units within the programme and on completion of the units will receive credit at the M-level. When they have accumulated sufficient credit for an award they may apply for one of the awards (Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or MSc) in Advanced and Specialist Healthcare Practice.
Each unit comprises a blend of web-based learning resources and online discussion events designed to support the development of online communities of practitioners. Occasional face to face events support networking between professionals and enable the students to engage with ideas and concepts at the forefront of service delivery.
The programme has the following underpinning principles:
- Assessment orientated to achieving real-work, practice-based improvements.
- Embracing continuing professional development through reflective practice.
- Grounded in gathering, evaluating and using evidence to inform decision making.
- Orientated to governance, risk and patient-safety agendas.
