Description

Health service leaders are facing increasing pressure from changes to the population, patient expectations, political environments, plus the growing demand to demonstrate affordable and effective service delivery. For this reason, a new skill set is required from healthcare leaders that focus on creating an environment for change. Most countries accept that existing health care models are not sustainable for future decades resulting in health service leaders engaging in service improvements and redesign activities that ensure services continue to reflect the care needs of consumers.

This subject focuses on assisting students develop skills and knowledge in managing planned change in the health system, through examining a range of change management approaches and their application to health service delivery. The subject focuses on relevant change management theories, implementation theories and approaches, use of evidence and strategies to influence senior staff within your organisation. Students are introduced to concepts, theories and frameworks that will support them to manage and plan change in their workplace.

Students leave this subject with the knowledge and competence in leading successful service change.
