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.

Throughout this course you will be working with vulnerable groups of individuals including children. In order to ensure that the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing offers places on their programmes to the most suitable candidates you will all be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance (formerly termed CRB). The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing will be able to guide you through this process once you have been successfully offered a conditional place at the University. It is important to note that any unsatisfactory Enhanced DBS clearance may result in the offer of your place being withdrawn even if you have already started your course.
The primary aim of this module is to enable practitioners to critically explore and analyse the specialist on-going care provided for patients being cared for in either Cardiac, Cardiothoracic, Renal, Neuroscience, or Orthopaedic care environments.
The module will review generic themes through exploration and analysis of the patient journey and experience of care.
The module is delivered at the Preston campus during semesters 1 & 2. There are 9 study days in total and these are scheduled to take place on Tuesday's of non-consecutive weeks. Each study day is delivered as follows: a 2 hour session core session which sets to explore key generic concepts relevant to all specialist pathways. These key concepts are then subject to specialist exploration in a 3 hour teaching session which is linked to the students area of practice.
This module will provide shared learning opportunities for a range of health care practitioners via generic core theme teaching. Students will also be provided with bespoke subject specialty teaching and learning opportunities in the subject specialty areas of Cardiac, Cardiothoracic, Neuroscience, Orthopaedic or Renal care. Students will examine important aspects of care delivery via the analysis of the patient’s journey through the health care system.
Blended learning techniques will be utilised and a range of teaching methods will be employed to enhance student engagement.
Patchwork text assessment methods will be employed utilising both formative and summative assessment methods in order to provide students every opportunity to create, develop and produce a meaningful and insightful portfolio which critically examines all aspects of a patient’s journey through and with specific on-going health conditions.
