Essay (3000 words)
You will be expected to demonstrate understanding and synthesis of evidence relating to the module content. You will reflect upon current practice in their own practice area and evaluate evidence-based interventions, pathways or approaches necessary to support people experiencing long term effects of Covid. By choosing an element of healthcare delivery pertinent to personal practice, you will also demonstrate their ability to appraise person-centred approaches to rehabilitation and recovery. This will enable them to develop strategies for their use in the evaluation and treatment of physical, social, cognitive, psychological and vocational functioning (ILOs 1,2,3,4,5,6).
