This MSc offers a clear focus on the clinical and applied aspects of working within secure environments. The programme is practice-based and covers a range of areas and topics applicable to working within secure environments. This programme is tailored to address the training and support needs of medical and nursing staff, as well as allied health professionals, including psychologists and social workers, providing primary care input in secure settings.

How You Study

Modules are taught though a blended learning approach, with a one-day masterclass format and online forums, discussions and materials to facilitate attendance by working professionals. Stand alone modules can also be taken as Continuing Professional Development.

The programme is focused on providing a flexible learning environment, which facilitates completion while working in applied practice. The pattern of delivery will be sufficiently flexible for the course to appeal to a wide range of individual clinicians working in a range of secure settings (prison, health etc). The use of intensive teaching means that there will be time for participants to develop support networks, applicable both in terms of professional practice and programme completion. The programme is supported by online access to lecture material and related information.

Modules will be taught on a distance learning basis except for the first 2 contact days, however you will have fortnightly contact throughout via email and Blackboard and the opportunity to organise face to face tutorials. More information will be provided to applicants who gain a place.

Individual modules can be taken as a form of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and the delivery format is designed to facilitate part-time attendance.

Access to facilities within the Schools of Nursing and Psychology including eye tracking facilities and physiological assessment with on-going collaborations with prison, hospital and community forensic services.
