What is the course about?

Senior health and social care professionals need to be able to translate and apply learning from academic programmes in order to make a meaningful contribution to practice. This programme will enable you to complete a substantial piece of work that has potential to stimulate development or innovation in your practice.

It draws together learning from the programme and engages the academic skills of critical appraisal with development of a proposal for application to practice. You'll identify a relevant issue and subject this to systematic analysis to produce an evidence-based report which addresses improvement objectives through deliverable recommendations. 

How does the course enhance practice?

The module is tailored to meet the needs of clinicians working in practice and allows the in-depth study of research methods and consideration of an area of personal/professional clinical interest.
