Course summary

OVERVIEW

Our MSc in Leading People-Centred Integrated Care is designed to provide a progressive pathway of Masters' level study for staff working in health, social care or in the Third sector. It will empower and enable you to lead and develop integrated services to promote and enhance quality of care and improve outcomes for people.

From a national and international perspective there is a recognised shift towards integrating health and social care for preventative, outcome-based commissioning and support. The approach values the role that people who use the services, their families and communities play in planning and delivering integrated care with professionals in new ways that add value and are sustainable.

This distinctive MSc is designed to enable local and international students to contextualise, develop and lead integrated services that improve the quality of care and enhance outcomes for people, professionals and organisations. You will develop enhanced leadership and influencing skills and a deeper understanding and respect for the different professional, organisational, sectoral and international cultures. Bringing together students with a wide range of personal and professional experiences enriches active learning and generates insights from the 'real world' of the workplace and from different health and care systems.

Teaching & Assessment

As our course is taught fully online you will access course materials through our Virtual Learning Environment, Moodle. Through Moodle you will be exposed to a range of teaching sources such as: PowerPoint; Prezi; Xerte and e-Books. Our course recognises students as co-producers and creators of the learning that takes place therefore students will also be able to take part in synchronous and asynchronous discussions to share learning amongst peers.

ASSESSMENT

Coursework will normally include essays, reflective pieces of work and your dissertation. Practical assessments will normally include presentations, demonstrations or exhibitions. Depending on the optional module you choose this may add to further learning and teaching methods as well as additional assessment types.

Our assessment strategy ensures there are multiple points to access formative and summative feedback to enable you to feed-forward to improve your academic skills as the module and course progresses.
