MSc in Advanced Practice for Health Professions at UEL
The programme is interdisciplinary and students work together exploring the contribution each discipline makes to patient care. Through this approach students will develop a better understanding of other disciplines and develop approaches to working together to provide a patient led service.

Contents

The programme forms part of our Post Graduate Framework for Health Professions which offers a wide range of accredited short courses and modules focused around patient centred care and evidence based practice.
Full time Students complete the programme in 1 calendar year.
Part time students may take two to six years undertaking modules at a pace to suit their busy lives.
Students are required to complete two core modules Foundations in Research and a Dissertation.
Students may choose the remaining modules from a wide range of modules and short courses offered.

Learning environment
The modules are studied through a variety of activities including keynote lectures, Seminar, tutorials, practical sessions, workshops, laboratory sessions, web-based learning.
Many of the modules use:-

* Presentations, which encourage students to communicate their novel ideas, make interpretations and develop critical awareness with their peers from across the disciplines
* Case studies which encourage the students to review and evaluate their own practice;
* Practical and laboratory sessions which develop new skills for management and evaluation of practice.

Self direction is encouraged from the beginning and develops throughout the modules, culminating in the dissertation where the student works interdependently with the supervisor.

Assessment
The programme has been developed in accordance with underlying principles currently held at the forefront of the professional and academic disciplines. Students are asked to show originality in the application of knowledge and understanding of how the boundaries of knowledge are advanced through research particularly in the Research Dissertation modules. In this assessment they will be asked to deal with complex issues both systematically and creatively, and they will have to show originality in tackling and solving problems. Most of our students are in employment but as the assessment throughout the programme is linked to the workplace, where possible, the students will further develop the qualities needed for working in circumstances requiring sound judgement, personal responsibility and initiative, in complex and unpredictable professional environments.

Coursework assignments are used in the assessment of all modules. In these, students have a choice the students can apply their interests to specific tiles, offering them the chance to bring originality to their assignments to gain increased knowledge, learning which is applicable to their work place.
Modules that include practical clinical skills may include a practical demonstration of skills and knowledge.
