Advances in medical care and technology now mean many more children are living with complex healthcare needs and life-limiting illnesses.
This interdisciplinary Caring for Children and Young People with Complex Needs programme at Queen's University Belfast is part of a suite of specialist programmes in childhood studies developed in conjunction with the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work and the School of Psychology.
The MSc in Caring for Children with Complex Health Needs is flexible and designed to meet the needs of local and international professionals. The programme is delivered via a blended format of online and face-to-face learning and there are several exit points for this course.
There is increasing demand for postgraduates with high-level skills in interdisciplinary research, participatory research methods and knowledge of caring for children and young people with complex health needs. This degree is ideal for professionals involved in caring for and supporting these children/young people and their families within health and social care services and NGOs such as public officials, social workers and allied health professionals. Graduates of this programme progress into management and leadership roles, or continue into a research or education capacity.
