Course summary

This Master’s degree offers practical support to health and social care practitioners undertaking quality improvement or service evaluations. On completion of this course, practitioners will feel confident in their ability to manage a challenging quality improvement and to evaluate changes made. Why study this course with us? Our course is designed to support ‘live’ improvement projects and service evaluations. It appreciates the dynamic and complex environment of contemporary service provision, and includes real case studies and presentations from experienced people with a track record of delivery in quality improvement and service evaluation. The underpinning philosophy is that of engagement – ‘all share, all learn’ – and therefore the course provides opportunities for students to learn, support and challenge each other in their improvement efforts.
