Advanced Practice (Neuroscience Care)
MSc/PG Dip, PG Cert
This programme aims to build on practitioners' neuroscience practice experience and equip practitioners engaged in advanced neuroscience practice with the critical thinking skills to evaluate issues related to neuroscience services, policy and clinical practice. The programme provides opportunities for students to acquire the requisite knowledge and expertise to meet the challenges encountered and opportunities presented by ever-expanding role responsibilities in practice within a neuroscience care setting. The programme also provides opportunities for students to develop a critical understanding of the theoretical and evidence-based underpinnings of specialist practice, health policy, health economics and ethical and legal challenges facing practitioners functioning at an advanced level within a neuroscience care arena. It also allows students to develop skills of critical reflection, and understand the political context of healthcare and how it influences practice.
