Keele Deal Health: Professional Development Unit
Keele Deal Health was launched in December 2019, offering a partnership approach to our health and care partners through workforce development, research and innovation, and evidence-based service transformation. The Keele Deal Health: Professional Development Unit (KDH: PDU) supports this mission by acting as a pipeline for the co-creation of new courses and opportunities in partnership with our health and care partners, as well as providing evidence-based training and toolkits to partners.
The KDH: PDU is responsible for integrating, growing, overseeing, and developing generic accredited and non-accredited postgraduate taught courses for the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (FMHS). Underpinned by research-led teaching, these interprofessional, continuous professional development courses are delivered from within the four FMHS schools: Medicine, Pharmacy and Bioengineering, Allied Health Professions and Nursing and Midwifery. The KDH: PDU also offers a gateway for collaboration with its research Institute of Global Health and with schools outside the faculty, including the Keele Business School.
This is a programme for multi-professional groups which aims to meet the contemporary challenges of advanced clinical practice. On successful completion of this programme, you will be a recognised Advanced Clinical Practitioner (HEWM, 2015).
This programme focuses on postgraduate academic study underpinning a higher level of professional practice in healthcare. It is designed to provide the health and social care practitioner a stimulating and rigorous analysis of health care practice.
This course is for anyone wishing to enhance their educational practice, skills and knowledge. You will gain expertise in effective clinical education in the context of your own practice.
