About The Course

The GPN (PGCert) programme’s conception and rationale reflects the essence of a number of recent policy reviews which attempt secure the future of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), these include the NHS Five Year Forward View, General Practice Five Year Forward View, General Practice Nursing 10 Point Plan (GPN 10PP) and the most recent NHS Long Term Plan announced in January 2019. Not only do these attempt to ensure the NHS is “fit” to deliver safe, effective and responsive care but also champion the philosophy of a new way of delivery for the health of the UK population, with the focus being placed back on provision at source, which places General Practice and other Primary Care services at the heart of delivery.

It is recognised that in order to support these ways of working, there is an absolute need for a workforce, which is well equipped, competent and confident in their delivery, and which highlights the need for effective initial and on-going education (Simmons, Deakin, Walsh et al, 2015). In addition, it is recognized that there are current major concerns around recruitment and retention within the sector (QNI, 2015) and polices such as the GPN 10 point plan have reflected on the need to support the current workforces more effectively and to consider new ways of attracting individuals, striving towards a sustainable career in General Practice and well-equipped workforce which is responsive to change.

Delivery

This course will be delivered through a mixture of face-to-face lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials, alongside online learning. This course has a strong emphasis on practice-based learning, which will require you to focus on your specific area of practice through a variety of self-selected reflective models.

The course structure will provide flexibility to allow you to build your individual learning pathway based on your current and future professional needs. It provides opportunities for you to develop sector-specific skills within the field of Primary and Community Care Provision, as well as generic knowledge, which crosses regional, national and international boundaries through modular content and learning activities.

Assessment

The modes of assessment employed on this course will allow you to demonstrate your confidence in articulating your ideas and knowledge in your academic writing. A variety of assessments will be used which will enable you to demonstrate confidence in your articulation of knowledge and critical understanding within your professional practice setting. Methods used are written case studies, an exam, posters and group presentations.

Careers & Further Study

The course also contains elements that are contextually transferable, and the acquisition skills in these areas will prepare you for future advanced clinical and leadership roles.

Year 1 Modules
The module is designed to enhance and develop the fundamental clinical skills of Registered Health Care Professionals working in General Practice. It seeks to enhance your knowledge, skills and confidence to manage your role in the Primary Care setting. It will explore effective care management pathways, Evidence Based Practice utility to inform decision making and will consider health promotion strategies. Specific skills will introduce you to areas of practice such as cervical cytology, immunisation, ear care and wound care in line with the standards set Working in Partnership Programme (RCN 2012) i.e. The GPN Career Framework for Level 5. The module content is also aligned to the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) competencies for General Practice Nursing.
The module will give an overview of clinical blood testing within the Primary Care setting. It will support you to understand the relevance, meaning and clinical implications of tests and results. It will provide you with effective decision making tools to enable you to make informed evidence based decisions around effective holistic management.
There are 15 million people living with at least one long-term health condition in the United Kingdom today. In addition to the impact on people’s lives, long-term conditions (LTC) such as Diabetes, chronic breathing diseases such as asthma and coronary heart disease management, account for over half of all General Practice appointments, with poor management resulting in over 70% of all hospital bed days. This therefore, defines the need for effective management within the Primary Care setting. This module will provide you with the opportunity to critically reflect on your current practice and consider evidence based interventions which will improve management.
