COURSE OVERVIEW

This course is designed to enable

experienced health and social care

practitioners to develop their skills of

independent thinking, based on the

development of enhanced knowledge

relating to the care and support of clients

in their area of practice.

The aim of this course is to enable you to

develop your expertise in critically

appraising practice in the health and

social care arena from an

interprofessional and contemporary

perspective.

The course will aim to facilitate debate on

inter-professional and organisational

patterns of care and service provision.

Some modules may address the wider

societal and political influences that

impact on health and social care. The

ability to promote effective joint working

between and across sectors and

agencies may also be addressed, as

appropriate to the students’ area of

practice.

The course will equip you with the skills

of critical reflection and evaluation so that

you are able to lead/facilitate advanced

and innovative practice within the health

and social care context.

MODULES

Level 3

LAW AND ETHICS IN HEALTH AND

SOCIAL CARE (30 credits)

Those who work in or experience health

and social care are increasingly in

situations requiring them to take moral

and ethical decisions, function within

legal frameworks and apply legal

principles. This module highlights the

ethical and legal aspects related to

professional practice. The module allows

you to analyse legal cases and the

statutory provision driving practice

coupled with an exploration of current

ethical issues, such as resource

allocation and judicial review, issues of

consent, death and dying and respecting

life.


RESEARCH METHODOLOGY,

DESIGN AND PROCESS (30 credits)

The ability to be analytical and insightful

regarding research reports is an

invaluable skill for anyone who wishes to

provide effective and appropriate care in

their individual sphere of practice. In

addition, today’s practitioner is required

to work in an expanding field of multi

professional, multi-agency collaboration,

and thus requires the skills and insight

into the efficacy of research within these

disciplines also. This module will revisit

your existing knowledge of the research

process and assist you in further

developing skills of critical analysis. In

addition, you will have the opportunity to

appraise the ethical dimensions of

research studies.

UNDERGRADUATE MAJOR PROJECT

(30 credits)

The individual final project module will

allow you to engage in a substantial

piece of individual research and/or

product development work, focussed on

a topic relevant to your specific

discipline. The topic may be drawn from

a variety of sources including: Anglia

Ruskin research groups, previous/

current work experience, The RAF, an

Anglia Ruskin lecturer suggested topic

or a professional subject of your specific

interest (if suitable supervision is

available). The project topic will be

assessed for suitability to ensure

sufficient academic challenge and

satisfactory supervision by an academic

member of staff.

SUPPORTING LEARNING WITHIN

THE CARE ENVIRONMENT (30

credits)

This module is designed for students

willing to share practice with other

learners within the health & social care

environment. The module focuses on the

opportunity afforded by the health &

social care environment for a rich

learning experience, the role of

experience in enhancing learning,

sharing practice within a care setting,

and the role of assessment.

TEACHING AND LEARNING

This programme will be delivered as

distance learning using the dedicated

Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) to

support the achievement of the learning

outcomes.

The modules use a variety of teaching

and learning strategies. Presentations

and workshops address Management

and Leadership issues at local, national

and international levels, using input from

local practitioners where appropriate.

The course aims to accommodate

students with all the preferred styles of

learning in a dynamic, interactive on-line

environment.

ASSESSMENT

The forms of assessment vary between

modules. Assignments may include the

production of action plans, essays and

portfolios. For the BSc (Hons) a major

project of no more than 10,000 words is

also required.
