Advanced Therapeutic Interventions through Work-Based Learning

This module allows the specialist practitioner to manage their own work-based learning. They will advance their practice in relation to therapeutic interventions in complex and unpredictable and/or specialised contexts and critical evaluate the outcomes of the choice of interventions through a supervisory process.  

The specialist practitioner will construct their learning experiences and provide evidence of the learning achieved. The work based learning approach will encourage advancement of their current evidenced based practice by working effectively with other multi-professional healthcare staff, acting with initiative in decision-making, critical reflection and self-evaluation. The learner will critically evaluate and synthesise literature and theories to illuminate the analysis of their experiences.
