15 Credits SUMMER

Aims/Description: This module explores and identifies specialist primary care knowledge to support the clinical diagnosis and management of common conditions managed on a regular basis in primary care. The student will consolidate their skills in history taking and clinical examination to enable clinical diagnosis and relevant management plans. The knowledge and skills relating to different assessment foci will be explored so that patient management and advanced clinical reasoning can be fostered alongside developing justification for differential diagnoses, investigations and treatments. This unit enables the practitioner to develop a portfolio of evidence of advanced practice competence in relation to common clinical management episodes.

Restrictions on availability: The student be a registered working health professional, must have completed advanced assessment and be in a clinical practice role in primary care in the UK with access to a clinical supervisor and supported by their employer
