Advanced Practice in Integrated Care

This award has been developed with input from service users and carers, who are also involved in its teaching and assessing. We emphasise working with service users to support them in managing their own care, as well as looking at new ways of working to facilitate integrated care across all service areas. The award is taught in short blocks and you will need to do some self-directed study. You consider the skills required to successfully implement integrated care into your area of practice. In the core modules you consider the concepts, philosophy and cultures, social policy, drivers and values for integrated care. You study leadership, organisational change, service design, evidence-based decision making and research methods as well as personal effectiveness, project management and how to create a change environment. You also study an option module.

Entry requirements
