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.
Teaching and learning disclaimer
Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.
The teaching and assessment methods listed show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
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.
