Course Details

Content will include:

  • The context of current health care practice: Commissioning, ethical and legal issues, the ageing population, obesity, politics and policy, risk, governance, stakeholders, quality assurance, hierarchical and tribal working
  • Global context and how does it affect the NHS
  • Influencing practice in the context of the above
  • Decision making and judgement
  • Audit and evaluation

Throughout the module there will be a commitment to the integration of evidence-based care, applied research, reflection and inter-disciplinary collaboration, as well as consideration of personal and professional experiences which you bring to the learning environment.

Active blended learning is promoted throughout the modules utilising a combination of taught classroom-based sessions, group online activities and tutorial-based sessions.  All teaching and learning activities are designed to scaffold the students learning towards successful attainment of their end point assessment: a presentation and a reflective essay.
