The aim of this module is to enable you to develop a holistic approach to the assessment and treatment of patients with minor health problems. You will build on current knowledge in order to provide enhanced evidence-based care in primary care, urgent care and first contact settings. This module will enable you to develop a range of skills that reflect an individualised, empowering and holistic approach to patient health assessment, care management and treatment in a more advanced and autonomous clinical role. This will include providing evidence based anticipatory guidance and educating patients in self-care.
This module advances your professional development by drawing on the four pillars of advanced practice: management and leadership, education, research and advanced clinical practice. It reinforces the core principle that advanced practice is a level of practice rather than a particular role.
