Explore the role of the leader in setting the context for service delivery in the health sector. Our short course, which you can complete in one trimester, will explore the management of change and the importance of 'learning organisations'.
Health and social care organisations are continually striving to improve themselves and attain excellence against a backdrop of relentless change.
Being able to thrive during times of rapid and turbulent change is a pre-requisite for organisational survival. Likewise, the ability to adopt change rather than merely adapt to it is one of the major hallmarks of a 'learning organisation'. Organisational learning becomes the mechanism by which organisational competencies can keep pace with national, local or international challenges.
Change is inevitable, and it's readily accepted that to remain the same increases organisational risk. Applying change management strategies to complex and high-challenge organisations can be a difficult task – yet it's essential in today's pursuit of organisational efficiencies. Our continuing professional development course is well-suited to healthcare professionals with a strong interest in management and leadership.
The course is aimed at health sector managers with either a clinical or non-clinical background who have experience of care in acute, primary or voluntary sectors.
