  • Improving the Quality of Healthcare

    This practice-focussed orientation will enable health care professionals to critically explore the conceptual foundations of quality and governance in the contex of their own working environment. Students will gain an understanding of the broader theoretical concepts of quality and clinical governance initiative. It challenges accepted notions of measuring quality and performance in complex situations and explores how practitioners can develop more appropriate and effective frameworks.

    Students are introduced to the complexity of change management and the dilemmas in achieving organisational change through clinical governance. Students are encouraged to critically analyse their own practice/organisation's approach to managing quality improvement within the clinical governance agenda.
