You will explore and demonstrate learning in a competency framework underpinned by a clinical, personal and professional, critical evaluation and analysis of the concepts required of an Advanced Paramedic. You will learn how your decision making has moved into the sphere of Advanced Practice applying a deeper understanding and application of the principles underpinning the advanced care you will now be providing. You will utilise placement opportunities across multidisciplinary areas, focussed on your development, to evaluate, underpin and analyse the practical clinical application of the skills and knowledge developed in year 1 and the progression of these skills to Advanced Paramedic level. You will apply the evaluation of your competence and capability to topics relevant to the developing role of Advanced Paramedic Practice.

Learn from the Best

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.

Teaching and Assessment

Throughout the module you will receive feedback from module leaders, practice mentors and peers through seminar discussion of the underpinning theories of competency development. You will also be expected to submit two elements for assessment; a portfolio containing competency framework achievement that will include evidence of achievement and a record of practice hours; a reflective evaluation of competence development in the form of a 2000-word essay.
