This course enables you to develop and apply both knowledge and understanding of current contemporary issues in the care of older people.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

The BSc (Hons) Professional Practice Degree Older People Pathway is a top up degree for health care professionals who hold Diploma level qualifications who wish to achieve a higher educational award of a degree. It is open to a variety of healthcare professionals including nurses from a variety of specialities, health visitors, midwives, paramedics, and operating department practitioners.  This programme satisfies the QAA Subject Benchmark statements – Health Care Programmes (QAA 2001).

The course meets the demands of the busy healthcare professional by offering part time study in which six modules are studied over a maximum period of five years, two of which are more specialised for care of Older People. Modules are studied face to face, blended or online. The programme aims to provide a mix of theoretical and clinical modules that are relevant to current professional clinical practice and the changing context of healthcare delivery.

Students can study between one and six modules, which offers a flexible approach to learning which can gain credit leading to 20 CATs points for a single standalone module to six modules for the full award: 120CATs. These choices support the organisational needs of the employer and the individual.

With the ever increasing numbers of older people being cared for in health and social care environments and recent reports such as ‘Compassion in Practice Strategy’ (Department of Health 2012) and the Francis Report (2013) there is a strong need to develop the workforce knowledge and skills in the complex care of older people. The Care of Older People Pathway enables learners to develop and apply knowledge and understanding of current contemporary issues regarding older adults in health and social care settings, thereby enabling a more person centred approach which can facilitate dignified and compassionate care for older people.
