At UCLan, our post-qualifying framework (PQF) allows health and social care practitioners to continue their professional development and achieve further qualifications in their field. You have the opportunity to study individual modules in subject areas that interest you. You can select from a comprehensive and contemporary range of modules that fit your personal development and career plans; either on an individual basis or combined in a planned programme to eventually achieve a degree.

Students must be working in a clinical area relevant to the module content
In the current health care environment there is the constant need to examine existing situations and initiate developments to move practice forward in positive and effective ways. This need causes practitioners to embark on local projects, which analyse specific issues, develop proposals for change and implement these proposals in practice.
This module aims to allow students to undertake their project within a framework that supports, facilitates and evaluates the practice development process. It is expected that there will be tripartite agreement on the project between the student, their manager and the module leader.
It is intended that this module allows students to gain academic credit for project work which they are undertaking as part of their role in the clinical arena. The student will propose the content of their project and they will be facilitated to successfully complete the design process, initiate the implementation and produce an evaluative report on the process which will include recommendations for the future maintenance or modification of the project.
