Advanced Practice (Child Health)

This pathway builds on existing skills and experience to enable students to lead and support the development and subsequent delivery of evidence-based practice; it enables them to develop a critical understanding of research methods and methodologies, use theoretical concepts from nursing and other disciplines to generate researchable questions focused around child healthcare, develop a scientific basis for examining child healthcare practice, use the skills of critical reflection, and understand the political context of healthcare and how it influences practice; it is a suitable programme for practitioners from a wide variety of child healthcare areas.
