This 20 credit masters-level module will provide you with appropriate advanced assessment, intervention and review of care, involving the administration of medicines via injections. You will be supported by our staff to explore the evidence base and clinical guidelines for your individual work area.
The module is delivered in practice as a partnership between Plymouth University and Torbay and Southern Devon Care Trust, which is delivered in practice by clinical specialist physiotherapists currently working in the relevant clinical areas.
The module is delivered in intensive blocks, with blended learning to facilitate distance study between face-to-face teaching, and also incorporate practical skills sessions. There is a high focus on clinical skill development including time in a specialist injection clinic with service users.
Applicants will have an identified mentor and the support of their workplace to carry out injections of prescription only medicines both during and following completion of the module.
