This year we have expanded the range of masters level programmes we deliver with the University of Northampton so that we now offer two Post Graduate Certificates as well as the MSc programme.A Post Graduate Certificate in Leadership for Health and Social Care, Post Graduate Certificate Transforming Patient Experience and the MSc Leadership for Health and Social Care. As part of the MSc programme we now offer an exciting Work Placement Opportunity as an option for the final large piece of work on the programme. This year we can now offer the MSc programme full and part time with a number of ways to finance modules including for those studying the full MSc government funding.
The Post Graduate Certificate Transforming Patient Experience was validated as a stand alone programme last year delivered for the first time to a group from the Leicestershire NHS Trusts. As the second cohort are coming to the end of the programme we are beginning to develop a profile of exciting long term project delivered by participants which include, really learning from serious incidents, making best use of patient feedback, implementing the DoH 'Red and Green Days' and improving patient education in cardiac inpatient wards.
