Advanced Clinical Practice is designed for experienced healthcare practitioners in hospital and community settings. The course builds on students’ existing skills and experience to enable students to lead and support the development and delivery of advanced clinical practice. Module outcomes are mapped against the Knowledge and Skills Framework and the NHS England Advanced Clinical Practice framework, so NHS employees can identify learning to support career progression. A typical academic year for students of this course might have approximately 150 hours (25% of total hours) in a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, project supervision and workshops, and approximately 450 hours (75% of total hours) of independent study such as preparing for scheduled sessions, follow-up work, wider reading, and completion of assessment task or revision. This will vary according to the optional modules chosen. Students are expected to undertake on average 14.5 hours of self-study per week. Assessments are conducted through a combination of coursework and examinations with emphasis on clinical competency assessment in advanced clinical practice. This can include written assignments such as essays, portfolios and dissertations.
