About This Course

The MSc Leading Quality Improvement will support you to become an expert in health care quality improvement and innovation based on effectiveness (the use of evidence); efficiency (service reliability); and acceptability (the service user experience). Using leading evidence based research we’ll ensure you can, as the next generation of improvement and innovation experts, apply this evidence in practice – making research real, and impacting directly on the quality of frontline services.

You’ll develop skills to help you identify and explore problems and opportunities in order to deliver valuable solutions to improve healthcare in practice. All of this will be supported by developing your critical thinking and ability to research the problems and opportunities you face, and help you to identify the cutting edge solutions. We’ll help you to gain insight into your own leadership preferences and styles in order to lead and challenge others to develop health services.

This is a very broad qualification that appeals to a wide variety of people in clinical and non-clinical roles working in any area that healthcare is delivered or it’s delivery monitored. We attract students from very diverse backgrounds including nursing; medical; allied health professionals (e.g., Therapy professionals; paramedics; laboratory staff); NHS and wider healthcare management, the Royal College of Veterinary Nurses and journalism.
