Our range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is tailored towards individuals who are driving and enabling practice development in the NHS in the North East.

You will be taught by academic staff with knowledge of respiratory disorders, practitioners/lecturers and expert clinical staff.

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.

 

You will be actively involved in the learning process and the course will be delivered through directed learning, independent reading, case study analysis, group work, lectures and, where appropriate, e-learning.

Clinical practice is an essential part of the learning process so you will need to be practising in a clinical environment that supports learning and teaching of essential skills associated with caring for respiratory patients.

Assessment of this module will take the form of a 4,000-word essay exploring a respiratory condition in depth.

 

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).

 

Completing this CPD module will enable you to provide enhanced care to patients and carers and give you an opportunity to reflect on current management of patients in your own area.
