Utilising policies and theories this module will critically examine the constructs and contexts of effectiveness and efficiency within people-centred integrated care from a global, cross sectoral and interprofessional perspective. Moreover, it will explore how to improve the quality of services and methods to improve outcomes and demonstrate the impact of services. Students will develop a systematic understanding of using information and data collection tools in order to inform strategic planning and commissioning decisions allowing them to recognise their accountability in decision making.
Alongside exploring and contextualising quality improvement methodologies, students will be enabled to facilitate, evidence and evaluate transformational change within health and care services. Through contextualising and critically reflecting on their personal learning students will continue to advance their personal knowledge and understanding and develop new skills in relation to promoting effectiveness and efficiency within people-centred integrated care services.
