Aims/Description: Senior health and social care professionals need to be able to translate and apply learning from academic programmes in order to make a meaningful contribution to practice. This unit will enable students to complete a substantial piece of work that has potential to stimulate development or innovation in their practice. It draws together learning from the programme and engages the academic skills of critical appraisal with development of a proposal for application to practice. Students identify a relevant issue and subject this to systematic analysis to produce an evidence based report which addresses improvement objectives through deliverable recommendations.
