Building Adaptive and Resilient Leaders in Healthcare!
Leading, managing and implementing initiatives, programmes and facilities in healthcare present special challenges. Managers in healthcare must make and implement decisions that promote the objectives of their organisations and the health system in this complex and dynamic environment. This often means having to make decisions that involve implicit trade – offs between cost, quality and access. This certificate programme provides tools that will allow participants to effectively confront these challenges and present solutions to improve leadership and service in the healthcare sector.
This programme will be delivered over a period of six months with two online sessions per month and will receive a Professional Certificate in Leadership for Healthcare upon completion of the programme.
Participants who have successfully completed this programme will be able to solve problems in healthcare delivery by thinking strategically from the clinical and business perspective, plan and control budgets for their areas of responsibility, make decisions in healthcare based on sound reasoning using the most appropriate evidence. Participants will also understand quality, quality healthcare, quality indicators and be able to acquire and apply basic techniques for managing quality and diagnose the courses behind team or organisational problems in health and motivate/enable others without formal authority.
Modules to be covered in this programme include:
Foundations of Healthcare Management
Leading Healthcare Organisations
Economics for Decision Making in Healthcare
Operations Management and Service Quality in Healthcare
Information Systems and Budgeting for Managers in Healthcare
Critical Thinking and Evidence Based Approaches to Problem Solving in Healthcare
**Process Improvement Process – Participants will have an opportunity to undertake a project in their institutions which will be supervised by our faculty.
