The overall aim of the MSc Professional Practice in Health is to provide a comprehensive, modern and dynamic programme at postgraduate level for students seeking to develop their career within the increasingly diverse area of health.
The MSc Professional Practice in Health enables professionals from a variety of health disciplines and workplaces to come together to learn. This is a new way of working in Wales, and in the wider UK, as traditionally professions have worked in ‘silos’ becoming experts in their specialist fields. In recent years, the call has gone out for professionals to break down the barriers that exist through this model of working, re-focussing on person centred care and the benefits that inter-professional working can bring to the people in our communities. Students will be encouraged to take a broad perspective to their learning, appreciating how global, international, national, and local influences, shape the practice of professionals in their area of health and social care provision. There will be opportunities for students to guide their own learning to reflect the diversity of the student group both from a professional and an individual perspective. This approach also acknowledges the varied workplaces and areas the students work within, ensuring that the potential to maximise the impact of their studies is recognised.
