The programme aims to:
* Provide students with a critical insight into the skills required to lead change, facilitate workforce re-design and introduce service innovation.
Topics covered include:
* Team management
* Role redesign
* Workforce planning
* Learning theories and their application in practice
* Different ways of learning and teaching
* Principles of assessment and evaluation
* Relationships between course planning and Educational and Professional frameworks
* Development and application of relevant learning resources and strategies
* Principles of Continuing Professional development
The programme is interdisciplinary and students work together exploring the contribution each discipline makes to service delivery. Through this approach students will develop a better understanding of other disciplines and develop approaches to working together to provide a patient led service.
The programme forms part of our Post Graduate Framework for Health Professions, which offers a wide range of accredited short courses and modules focused around patient centred care and evidence based practice.
Full time Students complete the programme in 5 months.
Part time students may take one to three years - undertaking modules at a pace to suit their busy lives.
Students are required to complete two core modules:-
* Leading and managing clinical teams
* Optimising Skill mix through work based learning
The modules are studied through a variety of activities including keynote lectures, seminars, workshops, web-based learning. Self direction is encouraged from the beginning and develops throughout the modules.
The modules use:-
* Presentations, which encourage students to communicate their novel ideas, make interpretations and develop critical awareness with their peers from across the disciplines
* Case studies which encourage the students to review and evaluate their own practice
This Masters level programme has been developed in accordance with underlying principles currently held at the forefront of the professional and academic disciplines. Students are asked to show originality in the application of knowledge and understanding of how the boundaries of knowledge are advanced through practice.
* Written assignments presenting critical accounts of management style and workforce planning
* Portfolio evidencing activities to promote and support development of individuals
Students will all have:-
* a first degree in a health related discipline classified as second class or above
* professional registration with the relevant regulatory body from their home country and/ or
* current membership of the relevant Professional Body
* relevant work experience is desirable but the applicants overall profile will be considered during the admissions process.
