Delivered by Great Ormond Street Hospital Learning Academy, this 15-credit module aims to provide practitioners with an opportunity to develop their knowledge and competence in relation to children’s renal care. It enables learners to contribute to their development and improvement of clinical skills and knowledge within children’s renal practice. It is undertaken through a work-based approach and is learner-managed with tutorial support and guidance from the module leader. This module of learning has been designed to allow each participant to define their learning relative to their own area of practice and expertise within children’s renal care.

This module can be taken as part of a Masters, Postgraduate Diploma, Postgraduate Certificate or Graduate Certificate in Paediatrics and Child Healthcare Practice. Visit our MSc Paediatrics & Child Healthcare Practice page for more details.


Active learning will allow practitioners to learn via collaboration, cooperation, and peer-based learning. Activities may include interactive lectures, clinical skills demonstration and supervised practice, small group activities, case-based discussions, workshops, practice simulations and tutorials.

Synchronous and asynchronous learning and teaching activities are delivered via a combination of study days and digital strategies at local sites or online using the Virtual Learning Environment.

Clinical skills development and simulation are delivered in fully equipped, state of the art skills labs using a range of low and high-fidelity learning modalities.


Formative assessment will be a peer reviewed group facilitation project.

For the summative assessment, learners will be expected to deliver a case presentation.
