This qualification is designed to enable you to gain the knowledge and generic skills required by the Multi-professional framework for advanced clinical practice (NHS, 2018).
This will be achieved by including the capabilities associated with each of the four pillars of clinical practice - leadership and management, research and education - across the three modules of:
- Non-medical independent and supplementary Prescribing (K803)
- Clinical Foundations of Advanced Clinical Practice (K804)
- Professional Inquiry of Advanced Clinical Practice (K805)
On completion, it will provide you with the relevant postgraduate education required for a health professional to work as advanced clinical practitioners, characterised by a high degree of autonomy and complex decision making.
Learning will equip you with the clinical and professional skills required to manage clinic care in partnership with individuals, families and carers. At present, the advanced clinical practice role is not recognised as a registered qualification by any of the UK professional statutory bodies/regulators. If you undertake Non-medical independent and supplementary Prescribing (K803) as part of the MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice (F85) you will be required to register your successful completion of the module with your statutory body/regulator in order to prescribe.
This qualification will enable you to develop the knowledge and skills required to analyse and synthesise complex problems across a range of clinical settings, enabling innovative solutions to enhance people’s experience and improve outcomes.
