Health-related courses receive national accreditation

Two MSc Advanced Clinical Practice courses gain Health Education England approval

Two University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) health-related courses have received official accreditation from a national body.

UCLan’s MSc Advanced Clinical Practitioner Degree Apprenticeship and MSc Advanced Clinical Practice have been awarded programme accreditation from Health Education England’s (HEE) Centre for Advancing Practice.

It means all MSc Advanced Clinical Practitioner Degree Apprenticeship and MSc Advanced Clinical Practice students from the September 2019 intake onwards are eligible for recognition on the HEE Centre for Advancing Practice Directory. This will enable individuals to evidence they have been successfully recognised by HEE as having completed an accredited advanced practice programme.

Robin Richardson, Executive Dean for the Faculty of Allied Health and Wellbeing, said: “This is fantastic news for students on our MSc Advanced Clinical Practice courses. The courses are well established and highly thought of across the Lancashire and South Cumbria region.

“This accreditation gives national credence to the hard work and achievements of Lynne Harrison, Allan Gardner and the rest of the advanced practice team. I am extremely proud of them and this accreditation.”

The student cohort has representation from a wide range of practitioners working within multi-professional teams and across a variety of healthcare settings. The subject encompasses the four pillars of clinical practice, leadership, management, education and research, with demonstration of core capabilities and area specific clinical competence. Advanced clinical practice embodies the ability to manage clinical care in partnership with individuals, families and carers.

UCLan’s courses had to meet strict HEE’s standards set out by the Multi-professional Framework for Advanced Clinical Practice in England and the Standards for Education and Training.
