Course summary

The MSc Patient Safety course is designed for healthcare professionals, both medical and managerial, to provide a basis for the fundamentals of patient safety practices. This course is designed to help students become leaders in patient safety and quality. You will gain a deep understanding of the factors influencing safety and quality, practical knowledge and training in academically-rigorous approaches to design and the ability to evaluate solutions. An emphasis is placed on translation and leadership, bringing together theoretical understanding and practical knowledge of how to make sustainable changes. The programmes offer access to a world-class faculty, including expert teaching staff from renowned international organisations such as the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) in the US and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in the UK. Through exposure to internationally-renowned teaching staff and blended-learning methods, students are equipped with the tools to tackle challenges and evaluate solutions arising from healthcare's ever-changing landscape. We expect graduates of the programme to be well-placed to advance in a range of directions. Safety and quality are becoming increasingly important topics in the national dialogue of health systems, including the NHS. This is further compounded by tightening national budgets. As such, individuals who can demonstrate an understanding of the factors that contribute to patient safety lapses and the know-how of how to address them are increasingly valued by employers. During this course students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards.
