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 module is a core module for students on the Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and MSc Community and Primary Health Care Practice. It will introduce students to the principles of work based learning and the skills required to facilitate personal and professional development for themselves and for their colleagues.
The module is designed to develop the knowledge and skills of practitioners in public health practice and primary health care. This will require that practitioners have an understanding of the underpinning concepts and approaches to public health practice and the role of public health in primary health care. Collaborative ways of working between sectors will be explored within the above context in order that students can plan and evaluate strategies for the improvement of health of individuals, groups and local populations. They will develop skills to work with others to plan, implement and evaluate programmes and projects, as well as appraising policies to recommend changes to improve health and well-being. Students have to be placed in concurrent practice for completion of this module.
This module enables students to analyse and conceptualise Specialist Community Public School Health Nursing practice when working with children, young people and families. The module will prepare students to work in partnership with children, young people and families. Students will gain knowledge and skills to develop and sustain relationships with different school aged populations so that assessment and surveillance can be undertaken, allowing the practitioner to respond appropriately to the findings when promoting health and well being. Students will be able to develop their knowledge and skills in relation to clinical case load management and promoting health and well being in diverse settings and contexts.
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.
