Months of entry
This MSc in Leading Quality Improvement provides students with a rigorous framework for the development and synthesis of empirical, professional and organisational knowledge and skills as the basis for improving the quality of healthcare. The programme will adopt a broad perspective on healthcare quality encompassing three themes:
- Effectiveness (e.g. the use of evidence)
- Efficiency (e.g. service reliability);
- Acceptability (e.g. the service user experience).
Attention will be paid to the full range of components of improving quality, including public policy and organisational strategy; governance and risk management; leadership; professional behaviour change; and service user involvement. The MSc will provide a focus for ‘research into teaching’ around the School of Healthcare Sciences’ research expertise in implementation.
