Health and social care postgraduate modules

We offer individual postgraduate modules to meet your particular CPD needs or as the beginning of your postgraduate journey to a PG Cert or MSc.

Evaluating Evidence and Effecting Change is an excellent place to start, enabling you to follow the evidence based practice approach to critique evidence and apply your findings to improve your practice or service. Other modules enable you to develop as a leader or transform your practice through the application of a health coaching approach.
