This course aims to provide students with knowledge and critical understanding of the organisation and management of health care organisations. Although the practical aspects of management are the most critical for managers, it is also important to have some grounding in the major theories. Some managers help to plan programmes, whilst others may have plans for their programmes prepared at a higher level in the organisation. Whichever is the case, a major part of the manager's work is to implement plans of action and the module aims to provide a variety of tools and approaches to help managers with this task.
Upon successful completion of the module, students will be able to:
- Describe key principles and functions of management within an organisation
- Analyse the effectiveness of management systems in an organisation
- Identify ways of improving organisational effectiveness using quality and human resource management initiatives
- Identify strategies for the successful implementation of change in organisations
