This distance learning course will address the key problems and opportunities that a person centred approach to care raises for the Health and Welfare professions.
The course is based on the concept of a learning community. This means being in partnership and sharing responsibility for your personal learning with the course team, tutor and other course members.
There will be a two day introductory session on campus but all the course teaching will be done using a web-based programme and two core text books.
Tutorial support will be given via email, the chat room and individual telephone discussion. Special emphasis will be placed on a collaborative and problem-solving approach to learning and on encouraging reflective practice.
