Course outline

Students will attend 3 half-day workshops where their enhancements will be developed, discussed and peer reviewed. The first workshop will introduce the Professional and Personal Development Plan which provides a rationale for the development and sets the key milestones in its implementation and evaluation.

The Professional and Personal Development Plan will be reviewed during workshop 2 providing an opportunity for further exploration and peer review of the enhancement. This workshop will then review the expectations for submission of the portfolio of evidence which forms the basis of module assessment.

The final workshop reviews progress and further peer review. There is also an opportunity to seek clarification on the final submission for the module.

Workshops are supported by a maximum of 4 individual tutorials, where progress can be reviewed on a one-to-one basis.

Entry requirements

Students may either be enrolled on the BSc (Hons) Professional Development in Contemporary Healthcare pathway or may study this as a stand-alone module. All participants must be registered with the HCPC or NMC and must be working in the operating department.

The student will identify their specific enhancement to peri-operative practice (e.g. introduction of a new policy/protocol, development of a teaching package) and will develop strategies for implementation and evaluation of the enhancement.

Key features

The module is flexible to meet the requirements of the student. The enhancement to practice relates directly to the student’s areas of expertise and interest.
