About Management of Long Term Conditions at University of Derby

Studying towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Management of Long Term Conditions at the University of Derby will:

  • Develop your critical thought, analysis and appraisal skills, enabling you to make innovative use of an evidence-based practice in the management of long term conditions
  • Enhance your knowledge and understanding for improving practice within the context of interprofessional working
  • Support you in becoming an autonomous and self-directed leader, able to sustain and advance your specialist knowledge in the management of long term conditions.

This course will prepare you for case management of long term conditions. On successful completion, you should be capable of moving into a case management role.

Develop case management skills

This course is ideal for you if you are working in a professional role where you need case management skills, such as that of community matron, nurse practitioner or district nurse. You will gain knowledge in long term condition management and clinical decision making, including advanced assessment of the systems. There is the opportunity to study option modules that allow you to focus on an area of particular interest to you. You might choose to focus on a disease-specific condition, carry out a case study analysis, or write up a small project, audit, or service evaluation.

You can study the option modules at either Level 6 or Level 7, so if you have not studied for a while you might want to start at Level 6 to develop your skills in academic writing before moving up to Level 7.

Advance your career

When you have completed this course, you will be capable of working in roles involving case management. You could also continue your professional development further by completing a Postgraduate Diploma or MSc in a course such as Advanced Practice.
