In this practice-related module students will have the opportunity to study the development of advanced clinical practice through an understanding of its history and influences on contemporary care contexts. We will explore definitions of advanced clinical practice, the four pillars, philosophy and ethics in relation to advanced practice and the concepts that surround the role.
The nature of knowledge in advanced clinical practice and decision making in relationship to patient experience and outcomes will be explored. We will examine the political and legal aspects of advanced clinical practice and reflect on issues such as gender, power and control. Advanced practice as art/science, professional identity, collaborative practice and major theories will be explored and critical thinking will be applied to how these develop.
