Advancing practice in long term conditions management

Key features

This 40 credit degree-level module will provide contemporary knowledge, skills and competencies for practitioners who wish to advance their practice to effectively manage a range of long-term conditions.

The module will highlight the significance and application of links between research/audit and evidence-based care in the management of long-term conditions and will equip you to lead and implement informed change in the practice of long-term conditions management.

At the end of the module you will be able to:
