Course content

The MSc in Advancing Integrated Care has been designed to provide a progressive pathway of master's level study for staff working in health, social care or in the voluntary, community and faith sector with an interest in Integrated Care.

The Advancing Integrated Care Masters has been specifically designed to enable you to develop complex high-level skills within this area. The programme will support you to lead integrated services that improve the quality of care and enhance outcomes for people, professionals, organisations and the wider community.

Integrated Care is developing into the preferred model of health and social care nationally and internationally. As the demographic and epidemiological foundations of populations change. If the person and community-centred aspirations of modern health and social care systems are to be realised then, the clinical and organisational leadership in these organisations needs to radically evolve and transform. This programme embeds leadership in all modules to provide the opportunity to critically appraise and develop the skills to design, and delivery and lead services regionally, nationally and internationally.

This programme offers two exciting pathways (Practitioner and Leadership) that support the development of a workforce that can deliver services that enable people to have access to health and social care which is coordinated around people's needs and is safe, effective, efficient and responsive to need throughout a personal life course.
