The course challenges you to take a critical approach to your studies and professional development by enabling you to make practical and effective use of your learning in your professional role. In addition to gaining subject specific knowledge this programme enhances your research skills to make use of your developing depth of knowledge. About the course The impact of the Francis report (DOH 2013) on the NHS and delivery of higher education cannot be over estimated and has shifted the emphasis of health to a broader concept of patient welfare through integrated services. As someone who works in the health or social care sector your aim is to help people to live better for longer. This course will enhance your professional practice and help you to lead and shape the care you deliver, making sure people have the support, care and treatment they need, delivered with the compassion, respect and dignity they deserve. You will be able to choose your course content to cover topics that will enable you to deliver care that ensures people stay healthy, protects them from threats to their health and minimises the risk and impact of their illnesses. Your studies will equip you to lead the shaping of services that meet patients' needs and enable people to retain their independence and dignity. Modules about compassionate care, mental health and wellbeing, children’s welfare and integration of health and social services are all topics that you can choose from. With this course a more inclusive approach to workforce development with the introduction of a common core of skills and knowledge for the health and social care workforce is now in place. This programme aims to be supportive of latest NHS strategy and you are encouraged to draw upon work-based learning and focus your development upon leadership and service improvement. A masters level programme in health and social care thus allows you develop your practice in a variety of service and community settings. Special features The course has a high degree of flexibility allowing you to choose from a broad range of modules. The emphasis on all our modules is on using theory to improve practice, and the quality and effectiveness of the services offered to patients and clients. We have an open, friendly style, lots of service experience, and give personalised support. Most people who work with us come from organisations in health, social care and the voluntary sector. They combine study and demanding jobs; we are very aware of the pressures this brings and try to adapt our programmes to accommodate this. Students on this course have very varied leadership and managerial responsibilities. They include commissioners and providers, clinicians and non-clinicians, strategic and operational managers. Most come via word-of-mouth from previous students and are looking for a supportive academic environment that helps them do their job. The Health and Community Studies Academic Group recognises that students wishing to undertake postgraduate study have varied amounts of academic experience and confidence. The department therefore offers free study skills sessions that have proved popular and productive with our past students. What you will learn Studying on this course will extend your skills in your field of professional practice. These will include decision-making skills, leadership skills and the ability to develop practical applications backed by theory and evidence. You will be able to deal with complex issues whilst questioning and redefining ways of working to move professional practice forward. You will understand the limits of autonomy and accountability.

Similarly, you may complete the postgraduate certificate before choosing to carry on to postgraduate diploma or MSc level. This flexible approach is popular with our students. An additional attraction is that you may take one module at undergraduate level and count those credits towards your postgraduate award. This option is particularly helpful if you have not studied for some time as the undergraduate module will help you remember your study skills and ease you more gently into higher level study. To gain the postgraduate certificate you will need to accumulate a total of 60 credits; 120 credits for the postgraduate diploma and 180 credits for the MSc. These credits should be at Level HE7 (masters level), although as explained above you may count one 20 credit module at Level HE6 (undergraduate level) towards your postgraduate award.

Health and Wellbeing specialisms - MPhil / PhD The Centre for Research for Health and Wellbeing welcomes expressions of interest in postgraduate research degrees in areas of study related to health and wellbeing. The centre draws together expertise from across the University within an inter-disciplinary framework, and provides a vibrant and fertile environment for postgraduate research studies. We undertake research, evaluation and needs assessment into service user involvement, participation and innovation, 'hard to reach groups' and service improvement, drawing from areas such as sociology, social policy, leisure studies, nursing, physiotherapy, public health and many more. We offer a number of research routes for those wishing to increase their research experience and develop their academic and professional profile. These include ‘traditional’ postgraduate programmes such as MPhil and PhD, as well as new routes to PhDs such as our PhD by Practice and PhD by Published Work (prospective and retrospective). We are also in the process of developing a Professional Doctorate in Health Research. Subject overview The Centre for Research in Health and Wellbeing undertakes high quality research that relates to professional agendas and social issues connected to the health and wellbeing of groups and individuals. Our research is based upon collaborative partnerships and community involvement and is truly interdisciplinary, encompassing areas such as public health, nursing, physiotherapy, leisure studies, social policy and sociology to name a few. The centre draws on expertise from a variety of academic perspectives and brings these to bear on current issues relating to health and wellbeing. All of our research is underpinned by partnerships and collaborations in health, and across the public and voluntary sectors. We examine the links and the potential for sharing of best practice between these areas and have expertise in service improvement, evaluation, needs assessment, service user involvement, participation and innovation. The centre’s research into health and wellbeing disciplines has been judged to be among the best in the world according to the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. 75% of the research activity in social policy at the University of Bolton (which includes health, physical activity and social history) was judged to be of international standard or better – with a proportion of research activity in this field judged to be world-leading, in terms of quality, significance and rigour. Research topics Here's a sample of our current and recent research projects and collaborations. Experience-based design collaboration with Bolton PCT’s Orthopaedic Clinical Assessment and Treatment Services (CATS): in this project we are working with Bolton’s Orthopaedic CATS service to develop and pilot a participatory, arts-based methodology which will enable the service to capture patients’ experiences. Barrow Community Gym: we worked with service users, service providers and other stakeholders to develop an evaluation tool for a community-based gym for people with mental health problems User involvement in service delivery and design, The RLC Surgery, Radcliffe: we have undertaken pilot work to scope a methodology for involving patients in the development of services which the surgery provides. Working with users, GPs, nurses and other practice staff, we have designed a research protocol which has been submitted as a research proposal to the Research for Patient Benefit funding scheme. Greater Manchester Public Health Practice Unit – research engagement with hard-to-reach groups for health improvement: we have been involved in discussions and pilot work around proposed programmes of research which link experiential knowledge with interventions that have an impact on reducing health inequalities and improving health outcomes in vulnerable groups.
