The integrated healthcare practice and strategic leadership course is designed for students who aspire to support, lead, and manage transformative health care provision contexts that seek to integrate a full range of hospital and community services, including local services, GP partnerships, local authorities and other healthcare and voluntary sector bodies within their service delivery model. It is intended for professionals who want to approach healthcare leadership with a business-savvy eye for emerging technology, budgeting and working with diverse and hard to reach groups when developing innovative health care solutions. There is a defined focus on advancing leadership strategies to promote community-centred, self-care, challenge systemic health inequalities and well-being agendas across cross-cutting provisions. Students who come on the course will be encouraged to adopt a critical lens in understanding the role of digital care records, the role of single assessment care plans, the challenges of planning cost effective funding, joined up care and managing the high-risk scientific messages aimed at improving health outcomes. The course will enable students to develop the critical leadership competencies to make complex decisions in the fast-evolving strategic spaces now emerging in the context of delivering and strengthening integrated healthcare provisions. Importantly the course will equip students with the capabilities of adapting to the rapid and momentous change in healthcare, extending from technological developments, regulatory change, and new equitable and collaborative systems of information and creating value for money. Students will also achieve recognition with the UK Chartered Management Institute solidifying the student’s credentials as a leading authority to work with a range of providers in the broad context of delivering health services and able to provide business support for health-related programmes and projects
Applicants should have a good undergraduate degree at Honours level, or equivalent.
