This advanced professional development course adopts a blended learning approach to develop your enquiry skills within the context of patient care. Lectures involve a mixture of theory and case-based discussions around clinical scenarios. These focus on increasing your understanding of the leadership and management of a wide range of chronic conditions in community care. This approach allows you to consider current research evidence and use this to inform your clinical decision-making and communication skills.
As well as attending lectures, we’ll expect you to undertake self-directed study and build on the knowledge you’ve gained in the theory sessions. A range of relevant web-based resources will be available via Moodle, the University's virtual learning environment, to support you to complete this work at a time and place that is convenient to you. These activities will ensure you fully develop the underpinning knowledge required to complete the assessments.
Formative assessment will support your learning but does not contribute to your final mark. You’ll receive feedback from your tutors and peers that allows you to reflect on your progress and identify what you are doing well and where you may need extra help. Summative assessment will involve a written case study and an oral presentation. These elements will contribute to your final mark.
