Through supported cross sectoral and inter-professional learning, this module builds on delegates existing leadership knowledge and skills in order for them to critically examine the constructs and contexts of leadership within people- centred integrated care, recognising the principles of teamwork.
Delegates will contextualise and reflect on the assets within their own workplace and teams in order to appreciate the skills within the workforce as well as explore wider networks for new roles. Through this, they will examine leadership opportunities and challenges associated with transforming people- centred integrated care from a global, cross sectoral and inter-professional perspective.
During this module participants will focus on building their resilience, managing conflict within the workplace and across sectors, and further develop skills in leading sustainable change. Through exploring workplace scenarios delegates will critically review, consolidate and extend their own leadership attributes necessary for the courageous leadership skills required for transforming health and social care services.
This module forms part of our MSc Leading People-Centred Integrated Care Programme. More information about the full programme can be found here.
This is a Masters Level (SCQF 11) module and upon successful completion of this module, delegates will be awarded 20 credits.
