The complex nature of health services poses challenges to those charged with managing competing needs and demands with limited resources. This programme aims to train students to provide safe, effective and high-quality care through effective organisation and management. The programme will cover main three themes: provision of a thorough knowledge and understanding of evidence-based practice by introducing systems for managers and administrators to minimise errors and monitor performance. The programme will provide guidance in strong leadership and effective management to ensure achievement of organisational objectives against a background of increasing public expectations; provision of a critical appreciation of relevant theoretical, methodological and technical literature from the central business disciplines and to cultivate analytical and interpretive abilities and enable students to integrate these with essential managerial and business skills and Reflection on the knowledge acquired during the taught elements of the programme and take independent responsibility for the application of explicit management responsibilities and practices to a relevant problem for the completion of the dissertation.
