Our new and innovative Delivering Quality Healthcare programmes are designed for healthcare professionals from a wide range of fields. Whichever focus of care you are involved in, we offer a range of modules and programmes to suit your ongoing professional development and enhance your practice. Your individual pathway of study will be tailored to suit the needs of both you and your employer.
This flexible programme will develop your academic and professional knowledge so you can support the creation of innovative and integrated ways of delivering high quality healthcare, centred on the needs of patients, clients, carers and populations.
The programmes aim to create managers and practitioners able to:
- Innovate in healthcare delivery to improve the patient experience
- Lead, commission or implement change that results in improved health outcomes for patients
- Understand how to measure quality, see patient safety as paramount and know how to recognise systems and processes that are more or less likely to have safe outcomes for patients
- Integrate care rather than work as unidisciplinary teams or organisations
- Take advantage of technology to improve direct patient care
- Interpret, or work with others with the skills, to make sense of the growing values of computerised health, social care and other ‘big data’ sources
