Course Overview

This 40-credit, level 7, advanced work-based project module will form the structure for the dissertation year of the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice Apprenticeship route through a work-based learning route (in conjunction with the clinical effectiveness module). This masters core dissertation module has been specifically structured to take into account a number of factors affecting education and professional role development for health-care professionals to embody an emphasis on the researching professional as a reflective practitioner. 


Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
