Course content

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 from the knowledge of both leading academics 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 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.
