Designed by a multi-professional team including Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Nurses, Midwives, Social Care Staff and Medical practitioners our range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is tailored towards individuals who are driving and enabling practice development in NHS North East.

Northumbria is the principal provider of nurse education in the North East of England and was named Nurse Education Provider of the Year (post-registration) for three consecutive years by Student Nursing Times.

We have excellent relationships with partner services in health, social care and social work and our range of CPD provision supports practitioners and managers to engage in professional learning and then examine how this can be integrated in the practice arena.

 

The module will be delivered through a combination of guided study, structured lectures and practical workshops. You will be able to participate in practice sessions using simulation almost from the beginning of the course which previous students have found extremely beneficial and enjoyable practising in a safe environment. An opportunity to practice these skills is also timetabled in the module.

You will be assessed on both theoretical and practical elements of the module, through a multiple choice and short answer examination, as well as a multi-station objective structured clinical examination (OSCE).

 

This module is based at our Coach Lane Campus where you will have access to cutting-edge facilities with technology embedded through all aspects of your CPD course.

 

Northumbria University has been ranked in the top quartile in the UK for research power in Allied Health Sciences and Nursing. Additionally, more than 80% of our research activity in Allied Health Sciences and Nursing is rated as world-leading or internationally excellent (REF 2014).

 

As well as enhancing your CV, this module will enable you to use the intellectual and theoretical skills gained to develop your practice in the area of history taking, examination and management in children and young people.
