This important module will focus on concepts and theory in areas such as: person centred integrative care and practice; ethical (principles and dilemmas); legal duties and responsibilities; professional and organisational contexts; power, communication, subjects, disciplines and the organisation of labour.

You will analyse a wide range of factors that support and hinder integrated working such as: philosophical, power based, social, cultural, financial, procedural, legal, relationship and interpersonal factors. You will consider different aspects of ethical principles and codes, your personal development, reflection and your self-awareness. This module will also allow you to consider what you need to do to ensure you can create: healthy boundaries (with others); self-care strategies; and, also have adequate forms of mentoring, clinical supervision, personal therapy and continuous professional development dependent upon your practice area.

It is advisable to study this module within the first year of your programme as it sets the foundation for developing integrative practices within your own practice. This is important whether you are working within your own therapeutic practice (at micro levels), or integrating care pathways with other practitioner groups and organisations (at more macro levels).
