Professional studies subject



This subject provides students with the knowledge of organisational theory and behaviour necessary to manage people and processes effectively in a health service organisation. Health service managers are required to meet (and enhance) organisational performance, attract (and retain) talented staff, and manage change effectively.

Accomplishment of these challenging goals requires managers to learn how to alter organisational dynamics via strategies relating to organisational structure and culture, along with the psychology of individual staff members. Legal and corporate governance, consumer engagement in organisational decision-making, and financial management in organisations are also addressed in this subject from a health service perspective.
