Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care (Speech, Language and Communication)
The course offers a flexible, professionally orientated programme for speech and language therapists and other graduates with a specific interest in communication disorders. This programme will stimulate you to think in new ways about the nature of speech, language, communication and swallowing problems. Strengthen your knowledge of the evidence base for clinical work. Enhance your skills in critically appraising research evidence. Qualify you for posts in the UK and abroad that require a Masters degree and for specialist clinical posts. Provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to undertake independent research and to apply for research posts.
Applicants should hold a first or second class honours degree or the equivalent from an international institution in an appropriate subject. Alternatively, applicants should hold the Licentiate Diploma of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
Modules include: Introduction to research methods and applied data analysis; critical issues in advanced practice; plus optional modules.
Assessments include essays, portfolios, literature reviews, poster presentations, oral presentations, and data analyses. Some focus entirely on critical evaluation of research; others require you to apply a selected body of research to a given case, client group, or clinical setting.
