Advancing Practice

The programme that is open to healthcare professionals seeking a qualification that is contemporary and relevant to practice. The programme aims to assist you to develop the knowledge, skills, confidence and attitudes necessary to develop your professional role and transform practice. The flexibility of this programme and wide range of modules available means that it can be tailored to your own individual development needs. In recent years a key focus within the NHS has been patient safety and with reports such as The Francis Enquiry (Francis, 2013) fuelling this issue, practice improvement has become a major theme in clinical practice. This theme is central to the course, which focuses on the development of skills in practice improvement methodology, enabling you to make a significant contribution to improving practice and providing quality care. The course is relevant to all healthcare professionals and allows learning to be focused on your own area of practice.
