Are you a graduate or practitioner in the field of health and social care? Suitable for those working in a wide range of professional areas and disciplines, this postgraduate course has been designed to help you respond to the growing need to integrate health and social aspects of care.
As current management approaches give way to a more person-centred approach to care, our course will equip you with the up-to-date knowledge and skills you need to contribute to improving provision in this changing environment.
The innovative part-time postgraduate course is delivered through a series of weekend workshops alongside blended learning.
Part-time – 2 years
(Starting January / September 2021)
Course detail & modules
The last decade has brought with it an increasing recognition that chronically ill patients need more comprehensive forms of assistance, mandating a need to move away from current approaches to the management of these conditions and towards newer models of care that are personalised, integrated and contextualised.
These newer, person-centred approaches to care offer affordable biomedical and technological advances to continue to be delivered to patients on the basis of objective clinical assessment, but within a humanistic framework which strives to understand their subjective experience of illness.
You have the opportunity to be trained to research problems from your own practice and enabled to find innovative solutions; to critically engage with, evaluate and synthesise the evidence and research to promote the development and enhancement of person-centred culture and practice.
You must have an undergraduate degree or equivalent professional qualification. We particularly welcome your application if:
- you are a qualified practitioner in a relevant field, such as nursing, midwifery, medicine, social work or psychiatry
- you have extensive experience of primary / secondary healthcare settings.
