Testimonial - PG Cert in Advanced Clinical Practice

Occupation: 
Occupational Therapist
Quote: 
What prompted you to do register for a PG qualification? I chose University of Limerick to undertake my postgraduate study. As a previous graduate from an MSc course at UL, I was always impressed by the wide breadth of knowledge the lecturers possessed, and their encouragement to engage in task based learning to maximize an adults students understanding of the theory. As a practitioner, you are constantly seeking opportunities to improve outcomes for your patients. How did you find the experience on the MSc/PG Cert course? This course offered the development of specialty skills aimed at an advanced practitioner. It allowed the student to focus on self -chosen areas of study applicable to their particular field and the combination of classroom based lectures, distance learning and self-directed learning was an excellent fit for a therapist currently carrying a busy caseload. The focus on application to real life clinical situations was stimulating and extremely useful. What did you get out of doing this course of study? The course informed my assessment and intervention when working with patients with neurological dysfunction. It broadened by understanding of assessment tools, treatment approaches and allowed me to critically analyse approaches I was currently using. The course has reinforced how vital evidence based practice is and equipped me with skills to ensure my practice is researched and supported. The course has altered my practice for the positive and I would highly recommend it.
