The programme provides existing practitioners with the skills and knowledge to become more autonomous in their roles and have the ability to improve and evaluate services for patients – to become an advanced practitioner.

The PG Certificate in Neurophysiology is a post-graduate training programme for the NHS Accredited Specialist Scientific Practice Programme (ASSP).  This provides the neurophysiology workforce with the ability to meet specific workforce needs in nerve conduction and EMG as well as paediatric and intensive care EEG.

The modules are available by distance or blended learning, allowing you flexibility in the way that you study.

Modules

PGCert

Mandatory modules:

NS1HS1 – Introduction to Healthcare Science. The overall aim of this introductory module is to provide a broad knowledge and understanding of science and scientific knowledge, contextualised to the practice of healthcare science and the services provided by their healthcare science division/specialism.

NS1PP1 – Professional Practice.  This module provides students with an opportunity to learn about healthcare science practice and its ethical and legal requirements. 

Optional modules:

Students will select one of the following two modules:

NS2NE1 – Nerve Conduction and Evoked Potentials.  This module will introduce students to the underlying theory of carrying out nerve conduction studies and evoked potentials and their role in clinical practice.

NS2EE1 – EEG in Practice.  This module will enable students to understand the role of EEG in the management of adults and children.  

PGDip 

Optional Modules:

Students will select one of the following two modules:

NS2NE1 – Nerve Conduction and Evoked Potentials.  This module will introduce students to the underlying theory of carrying out nerve conduction studies and evoked potentials and their role in clinical practice.

NS2EE1 – EEG in Practice.  This module will enable students to understand the role of EEG in the management of adults and children.  

NS2EB1 – Evidence Based Practice.  This module aims to provide students with a theoretical and practical understanding of evidence-based practice in healthcare and its role in service improvement.  Students are required to undertake NS2RM1.

NS2RM1 (Dissertation I) – Research Methods. The overall aim of this module is to ensure that the trainee has the underpinning knowledge of the importance of research, development and innovation across the NHS and in healthcare science and in particular to provide the underpinning knowledge for the research project.

NS2RP1 (Dissertation II) – Research Project.  The module aims to develop students’ skills in evaluating research, research design, analysis and interpretation.  The student will be encouraged to acquire an in-depth practical understanding of work that is at the forefront of research into healthcare science.  Students are required to undertake NS2RM1.

MSc

NS3RP2 (Dissertation III) – Research Project.  In this module students will complete a research project that shows originality, together with a practical understanding of how established techniques of research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in neurosensory sciences.  It will build on the learning from the second year research modules. Students are required to undertake NS2RP1 and NS2RM1.

CHMBLI – Leadership for Health Management.  This module aims to explore leadership within the context of clinical health.

CHMSI – Quality Improvement.  This module aims to introduce students to the principles of quality improvement required for the delivery of high quality, safe healthcare.  The content reflects the World Health Organisation Patient Safety Multi-Professional Curriculum Guide 2011.

All modules can also be undertaken independently as continuing professional development.
