The MSc Leadership, Management and Innovation in Health Care programme is designed to equip NHS Wales Graduate Management Trainees with a critical and analytical understanding of:
- the broad context of the NHS in Wales
- the complexity of public service environments and the challenges of enduring austerity
- demographic pressures
- increasing public demands and expectations faced by the NHS and other public services in Wales, the UK and internationally
The course will reflect the imperative of making the most of scarce resources to deliver the best possible outcomes for all. This forms a cornerstone of Prudent Health Principles which are the basis of a cultural shift in health and social care in Wales (Bevan Commission 2015, Bradley & Willson 2014).
A comprehensive knowledge of theories, models and concepts of leadership, management, change and innovation will provide the graduates with the tools to reflect, analyse and critically review their own practice, bringing together academic and experiential learning. Inclusive and collaborative learning will be facilitated through participatory and interactive methods.
Graduates will be equipped with a sound knowledge and critical understanding of health financing, resource management, improvement science and governance and the principles, methods and application of economic evaluation.
