Person-Centred Practice (Mental Health and Wellbeing)

Queen Margaret University


This recently developed innovative Master’s Person-Centred Practice (PCP) Framework with a suite of course routes places the values of person-centredness at their core. These routes offer practitioners the opportunity to build upon their experience and develop an understanding of the knowledge and evidence that positively contributes to the health and wellbeing of persons, groups and populations.

The framework enables you to study the route which best meets your professional background and future aspirations. It will appeal to a wide range of health professionals. Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Registered Nurses already working in, or wishing to work in, the community can undertake a specified group of modules that allows them to achieve a community qualification or registration recognised by the NMC in District Nursing, Health Visiting or School Nursing.

The MSc/PgDip/PgCert is for a broad range of health and welfare workers who wish to employ mental health assessment and intervention skills with patients, or clients, in differing acute and community settings.

You can exit after stage 1 with PgCert Person-Centred Practice (Mental Health and Wellbeing) (60 credits)

You can exit after stage 2 with PgDip Person-Centred Practice (Mental Health and Wellbeing) (120 credits)
