The programme

The programme structure is based around seven learning outcomes that will improve care quality and the patient experience. We focus on leadership impact at three levels: individual, team and organisation.

There are eight modules:

Module 1: Focuses on self - working with you to critically evaluate your current leadership practice and examining how this affects the quality of care for a diverse range of patients.

Module 2: Focuses on teams - working with you to develop a clear understanding of your team; focusing on effective team working.

Module 3: Focuses on the organisation - helping you understand the broader context for your services, align organisational values and identify how you can improve the quality of care and patient experience.

Module 4: Building on from Module 3 - focuses strategically on decision-making to ensure quality, efficiency and effectiveness e.g. reducing waste and duplication; and increasing shared resources across system boundaries.

Module 5: Builds on Module 2 - working with your team leaders to build team efficacy and personal accountability; creating an engaging learning culture; developing openness and resilience, and helping them do the same with their teams.

Module 6: Builds on Module 1 - further evaluating how your leadership practices affect patient care through an intense focus on your leadership behaviours and their congruence with patient, staff and organisational needs.

Module 7: Preparing you for your healthcare leadership case study: learning how to collect and analyse information through different theoretical lenses, and how these lenses affect your wider world-view and subsequent actions as a leader.

Module 8: Completing your healthcare leadership case study where you critically evaluate how care, diverse patient experience and involvement has improved as a result of your learning and actions.
