Advanced Clinical Practice (Management of Long-Term Health Conditions)

There is a demand for advanced practitioners specialising in the case management of multiple long-term conditions. The course allows you to develop an integrated and structured approach to the care of those with highly complex needs while further enhancing your knowledge of research and evidence-based health and social care. You develop advanced skills for the advanced clinical assessment, diagnostic reasoning and management of long-term health conditions. You also develop your ability to engage with a broad range of stakeholders to orchestrate and deliver supportive care to this group of patients. Some modules require one full day of study a week and one 40-credit module in Year 2 has a block study week at the commencement. We use a variety of approaches to teaching including learning sets, e-learning@tees, formal lectures and seminars. You focus on an area of interest that you can develop in subsequent modules such as advancing practice and/or the research dissertation. This programme is offered on a part-time basis and is flexible to meet your individual learning needs. The Evidence-based Practice and Designing Research Projects modules are available online if you want to study by distance learning. The digital resources allow you to take a mixed approach to your learning to fit with your professional and personal circumstances. If you want to take this flexible approach, you must discuss it with the relevant module leader.
