You will be able to understand and comprehend various specialised aspects of the ‘craft of caring’ for people with a serious mental illness. You will also get the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of more complex individualised care, helping to improve the quality of care the patient receives. The module will explore varied specialisms for example, forensics, older people, learning disabilities, carers, child and adolescence mental health care needs, and will also consider an international perspective.
  • Research ProposalThis module will provide you with a critical overview of the main methodologies and designs applied to research within health and social care, professional practice and regulation and policy. It will provide you with an opportunity to explore the theoretical dilemmas that underlie the process of enquiry and its relationship to practice. The module will provide a framework within which to select, evaluate and justify the research methods chosen for your research project.
