This module builds upon the knowledge and skills developed in part one of the programme. Students are required to critically explore the evidence for their own professional practice. Those students wishing to undertake the portfolio dissertation should have successfully completed a module on the MSc Enhanced Professional Practice.
This core module builds on the student¿s prior knowledge of research and aims to expand their knowledge and understanding of the research process, to include an appreciation of how practice and research are interrelated and its application to community mental health nursing practice. There is an emphasis on 'action learning' approaches - which means that students are encouraged to read, recognise and reflect on their practice and knowledge development, in order to share their progress/difficulties in an educative, supportive and challenging arena (with other students and teachers). The main aim is to assist students to apply knowledge and skills learned whilst developing their own personal and professional practice. In order to facilitate the integration of theory and practice, which is essential to a practice discipline, students will be located in concurrent practice.
