This module commences with four weeks of learning via our online learning platform, Moodle. This online content can be completed remotely in evenings, weekends, or any time convenient for you in each given week, thus minimising disruption to clinical time. Students are expected to dedicate the equivalent of one day a week in time each week to complete this content.
This is followed by three subsequent consecutive days of teaching delivered live, but remotely via a digital platform.
Teaching and content is aligned with Domains A-D in the Knowledge, Skills and Attributes section of the Roadmap for FCPs, covering the following topics:
- A. Personalised Approaches.
- B. Assessment, Investigation and Diagnosis.
- C. Condition Management, Interventions and Prevention.
- D. Service and Professional Development.
Teaching methods include presentations, case studies, group work, peer discussion. External expert clinicians will be invited to teach and lead some of the taught sessions.
We understand that deciding where and what to study is a very important decision for you. We’ll make all reasonable efforts to provide you with the courses, services and facilities as described on our website. However, if we need to make material changes, for example due to significant disruption, or in response to COVID-19, we’ll let our applicants and students know as soon as possible.
Assessment for this module is made up of two components:
- An evidence-based Portfolio developed in response to a personal development plan, aligned and mapped to the Knowledge, Skills and Attributes outlined in the FCP Roadmap (50% weighting). This component is designed to meet Learning Outcomes 1, 3, 4 and 5.
- An evidence-based Oral Case Presentation of one patient you have assessment and managed using a first contact approach (50% weighting). This component is designed to meet Learning Outcomes 1 and 2.
