This part-time course is aimed at healthcare professionals who work at the front line of patient assessment, diagnosis, referral and management. It's a direct response to the latest needs of the NHS and is an excellent opportunity for healthcare professionals to further develop their skills and knowledge and gain an accredited qualification.
The course starts with a grounding in how to undertake physical examinations while incorporating clinical history. You will then develop a wide range of up-to-date knowledge and skills for tackling minor injuries. The course covers musculo-skeletal injuries, fractures and sprains as well as injuries to the eye, head, and a range of other areas.
During the course we will help you make appropriate clinical decisions and reflect critically on your current practice. You will also gain in-depth understanding of the latest policies and processes that underpin clinical practice within primary and secondary health care settings.
The content of this course has been co-designed in collaboration with NHS healthcare professionals. You will attend 11 sessions over the duration of the course.
The delivery of the course will be facilitated by a team of experienced practitioners and lecturers in their specialist areas of healthcare practice.
You will be assessed through your clinical portfolio and an Objectively Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).
