Advanced Practice (Diabetes Care)
This pathway is designed to equip all health professionals working with patients who have diabetes mellitus either in specialist or primary care settings with the knowledge and skills they need to provide effective care; the pathway provides training in research methods and the methods of evidence-based healthcare; through this training students produce a systematic review of a diabetes-specific topic and undertake a substantial research or service development project relevant to their own area of practice.
Applicants should be working in a practice role which involves regular patient/client contact; the entry requirement for graduate study is a good Honours degree (2nd Class Honours or equivalent); applicants with other backgrounds or qualifications, including those without a degree are welcomed.
Staff from contracted Trusts are eligible to have their study funded, subject to agreement by their manager; students not sponsored by their employer may wish to pursue other sources of funding; some scholarships may be available; prospective students may also wish to consult the Directory of Grant-making Trusts and Charities (available in local libraries); self-funding students may wish to consider a Career Development Loan.
