This module is a springboard for the rest of the MSc degree. It enables the student to practice the skills of critical analysis, argumentation and reflection and to apply them to the most contemporary ideas and practices of their own discipline. It enables the student to appreciate and challenge the gap between theoretical ideas, professional practice and service delivery while raising their level of critical thinking and expression to that required for level 7 study. People working in health and social care need to be politically and professionally aware, with the ability to challenge and question service delivery and their own practice.
Intended Learning Outcomes
‘On successful completion of the module, students should be able to’:
Demonstrate skills in locating and evaluating a range of relevant bibliographic and information sources in order to inform and develop a critical understanding of current issues in their field.
Challenge arguments and construct, develop and defend a coherent argument using the conventions and skills of academic scholarship.
Critically debate the political and professional influences and initiatives underpinning current health and social care provision, recognising their contexts and antecedents.
Relate leadership and personal and professional development needs to the analysis of a problem or issue.
Synthesize reflective evidence, where possible, with literature based data to inform service development and debate
Module learning outcomes
· The learning outcomes begin with knowing how to find and use research and other resources so that you can appraise practice and services based on factual information and credible evidence. The information you use should be at the forefront of knowledge in your field.
· You should be able to acknowledge the drawbacks to your ideas and anticipate counterarguments.
· To understand current systems and practice you need to know how they have developed. In other words you need to know the background and history of the systems and contexts within which you work. Then you will understand the political, economic, philosophical and social drivers for the way the system is and the behaviours in people you observe. To understand the context and the philosophy of the context you work in, it’s useful to understand the type of knowledge that is respected within that context. Therefore the subject of evidence and what constitutes evidence for practice, is a part of the module.
· The most influential tool for initiating change or keeping situations the same is leadership, which explains why leadership is part of the module. Similarly, education is a crucial influence on changing practice, making professional development an essential consideration in enhancing services.
To be a critical practitioner, self-awareness is an essential attribute so that being able to reflect on what you or others are doing, or on what you are reading and learning, and applying this to real services is an important attribute. In today’s health service enhancing services has to encompass cultural and spiritual awareness; an understanding of clinical effectiveness
