The Advancing Practice in Dietetics (Advancing Practice in Health Framework) pathway from Queen Margaret University aims to facilitate the knowledge and skills required for the development of advanced dietetic practice. The dietetic pathway is based on a model of collaborative multi-professional learning aligned to expectations of the four pillars of advanced practice (Clinical Practice, Leadership, Education and Research).
There are learning opportunities in areas such as fundamentals of advancing practice, critical analysis, evaluation and research methodologies, as well as clinical competency workplace modules.
The framework also offers opportunities to draw on expertise across the University on subjects such as leadership, social science and education.
The dietetic pathway aims to foster and develop QMU’s mission of cultivating intellectual capital with both a theoretical and practical focus.
Learning and teaching is underpinned by research, evidence and scholarship against a background of the current and evolving political and social landscape for health and wellbeing. The dietetic pathway offers flexibility in modes of study (part-time, full-time or workplace) that are responsive to individual needs and today’s culture of work and learning.
All modules will provide learners with enhanced career progression opportunities in leadership roles or within their specialist field of practice.
