MSc Healthcare Improvement and Patient Safety
Healthcare systems all share one current goal: to deliver safe, high quality care within budget against a backdrop of skill shortages and increasing patient demand. Our MSc in Healthcare Improvement and Patient Safety will equip you with the confidence to address these challenges. On this programme you will develop the knowledge and expertise to analyse healthcare processes, propose evidence-based improvements and to lead implementation within your own workplace setting.
This programme is based on our previous MSc in Simulation and Patient Safety, but with additional flexibility at the postgraduate certificate stage where you study Patient Safety and Quality Improvement accompanied by either:
- Simulation and Enhanced Learning – this module will allow you to become an expert practitioner in the use of simulation to advance clinical education across all clinical disciplines using a wide range of simulation modalities.
- Human Factors in Healthcare – this module will develop your understanding and skills around the science of human factors and ergonomics allowing you to make system changes to enhance performance for the benefit of patients and staff.
There is also a full-time and intercalated route available for this programme.
