Course summary

Programme overview

The programme aims to create a new generation of healthcare professionals who understand, critically analyse and provide solutions for the challenges faced by health systems and healthcare organisations in the 21st century. It aims to equip students to manage the changes required to meet those challenges.

It is designed for anyone with an interest in pursuing a career in promoting, designing and delivering healthcare improvement initiatives. Students will be from a variety of professional backgrounds, including doctors, nurses, managers, systems design and other health professions.

The programme draws on the knowledge of leading academics from across disciplines and healthcare experts. It provides a comprehensive research-driven theoretical framework, along with practice-oriented knowledge and skills in patient safety, risk management, human factors and quality improvement healthcare initiatives.

There will be the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of strategies to establish a culture of organisational learning, focusing on continued proactive improvement of healthcare delivery. You will be challenged to incorporate a number of healthcare-related themes - leadership, simulation education, patient safety, innovation, team training and quality improvement - into a unified approach to deliver sustainable change.

Careers

A qualification in healthcare improvement prepares you for managing change in any setting, but particularly in healthcare.

Many healthcare professionals have clinical careers and continue to balance a clinical and academic career as clinical academics. Some combine their clinical career with dedicated roles in patient safety, risk management and quality improvement, while others use their qualification to critically evaluate their practice and the service they deliver, identify ways to improve it and implement sustainable change.
