Learn from the Best

This module was designed to prepare and support practitioners to monitor and manage long term conditions in their practice setting and is tailored towards individuals who are driving and enabling developments in practice 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

You will learn through a blended learning approach which will incorporate the use of online resources with directed and campus-based learning activities, alongside the supported development of competencies in practice. Lectures, discussions and seminars will help you to draw upon existing skills in order to apply the module content to professional practice.

Assessment for this module consists of two parts.  Part one is a 2,500 word written reflective account which critically examines strategies for the monitoring and management of a chosen long term condition.  To pass part two you will need to demonstrate safe and effective practice which will be assessed by a workplace mentor/experienced peer through your competence in the workplace.

 

Learning Environment

This course 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).
