Long Term Conditions Level 7 (Health CPD)
- Module Cost
- Further Information
The purpose of this module is to support practitioners in promoting person-centred care for the patient and their families/carers with a long-term condition. It will enable practitioners to understand the challenges and complexities of living with a long-term condition and the strategies and interventions used to support people to self -manage their illness. It will explore emerging models of service provision for the patient and provide opportunities for enhanced collaboration between services in the health and social care sectors, also across primary, secondary and tertiary care. Central to this module is the significance of using evidence-based approaches to manage long-term conditions and to understand this in the context of contemporary health and social care practice. Therefore, the practitioner is encouraged to reflect on their practice and continuously be an advocate for driving and improving service provision within their own area of practice. Working with people with long term conditions is essential in this module. There is an expectation that you attend and participate in all live online sessions.

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules and regular (five-yearly) review of course programmes. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, there will normally be prior consultation of students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff or sabbatical leave. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will endeavour to inform students.
