Course content

The Postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies (Health and Social Care) is a highly innovative, practical course, designed to respond to the professional development needs of all managers across the health and social care sectors – including those holding supervisory posts, or with junior or middle management responsibilities.

This course addresses the needs of managers in an environment subject to frequent change, with even more fundamental changes expected in the future. Questions of resource allocation, and the efficiency of using and organising resources, are central to the current debate. This course is designed to help you understand these issues and put them into context.

You will also improve your functional skills in specific areas, and learn about multi-disciplinary working as an integral part of modern management practice within the health and social care sectors. Above all, this course gives you the opportunity to develop your personal effectiveness in the workplace, while working towards a formal management qualification.
