The MSc Person-Centred Practice is a postgraduate programme which focuses on person-centredness in the contemporary practice of integrated health and social care. The Person-Centred Practice (PCP) Framework offers practitioners to develop their studies and to enhance their expertise of person-centred practice through a programme designed to meet their needs and those of the community.
This programme develops nursing professionals for the multi-professional and multi-faceted health and social care environment. The programme offers students a chance to personalise their learning to meet their situation. They can choose to specialise in one of the three disciplines: MSc PCP (Nursing Education); MSc PCP (Nursing Management) and MSc PCP (Community Care).
The MSc PCP (Community Care) programme develops in practitioners the advanced communication skills with the patient, family and inter-disciplinary teams. This programme explores the experiences of illness, death and bereavement for patients and families. This programme enables the practitioner to establish strategies with health/social care members to help patients and families to cope with challenging emotions.
