Dissertation Level 7 module

This module supports a learner to creatively and innovatively translate evidence to generate alternative approaches and/or solutions within respiratory practice via the development of an original empirical enquiry or a practice improvement project.
The evidence will be drawn from a Literature Review completed as part of the Research Module.

The module enables a learner to choose the subject and approach to their dissertation which must be related to an aspect of respiratory practice. Based upon negotiation and discussion, learners will be guided to choose an area which could potentially promote or improve service, treatment or practice.

In addition to the modules above, we also have two modules called Negotiated Learning. The purpose of these modules is to allow learners flexibility to negotiate the specific content of the module in order to maximize their specific clinical/professional interest and /or that of their employer.

Access to these modules would need to be discussed with our Programmes team. A supervisor will be assigned to assist the learner in writing their module contract and planning their learning outcomes which should be congruent with the course learning outcomes and the QAA (2010) Masters Degree Characteristics at the beginning of the module.
