Aims/Description: Advanced clinical skill development is a key feature of the advanced clinical practitioner role and the completion of this module will provide advanced general practice clinical practitioner students with the relevant underpinning anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology knowledge to gain mastery in their role. The knowledge and expertise gained on this module will facilitate mastery and autonomy in comprehensive history taking, assessment, diagnosis and therapeutic management of their clients with a focus on the adult population.
