This programme has been designed for GPs and other healthcare professionals working in remote and rural settings and who wish to enhance their confidence and skills in dealing with urgent and pre-hospital care and to take advantage of advances in technology to deliver healthcare remotely. An ideal opportunity to develop and enhance their portfolio career, this programme allows students to convert certified CPD already gained and implemented in daily practice, into academic credits to enter the programme at an appropriate stage. Students then choose from a wide range of modules to build a programme suited to their own individual needs. The programme can be studied in ‘bite size chunks’ to facilitate work-life balance and is delivered on site or at the UCLan Westlakes campus. Students are guided through the programme by a UCLan mentor. The teaching team comprises experienced academic staff, clinicians, leaders and managers.
