Dissertation Module: Work-Based Project (NRT079)

The aim of the work-based project is to implement and/or evaluate a practice initiative or change, drawing on health improvement literature.

The identified initiative or change has an impact on improving practice/practitioner development, while exploring your own role as a practitioner in effecting change.

In today’s health and social care settings, practitioners are not only engaged in the practice of their profession, but also in supporting the environment as an active learning arena, where students and professionals are expected to develop and maintain their competence in very complex situations.

The module aims to:

  • enable you as a student to acquire the knowledge and value base which underpins the development, implementation and maintenance of health improvement skills within the work environment
  • support you in the development of an understanding of work/practice place environments which facilitate reflection, innovation and ‘user focused’ practice
  • provide you with the knowledge base and support to enable you to develop, implement and/or evaluate a project or initiative.

The WBP has really helped shape my current work and is pushing the service to strive for more resources to provide suitable MDT therapy for patients.
