This is a PLuS Alliance course offered through UNSW. Students at UNSW, Arizona State University and Kings College London who are in a PLuS Alliance program can enrol into this course.
This course is offered in two modes: either face to face (on-campus) and fully online.
This course critically examines a range of theories, models and approaches to leading and managing at different levels in health service organisations. It provides tools to identify and respond to management problems in the context of major changes in priorities and services in health and its workforce. Whether you come from a clinical, public health or other disciplinary background we consider how you can draw upon that understanding and your current organisational setting to strengthen your health leadership capacity and workforce management skills. Topics include: the shifting role of managers in health services; management and leadership theories and models; influence, power and management ethics; managing in resource constrained environments; diversity in health service settings; managing teams and motivating staff; conflict management and improving health worker performance; workforce planning and capacity building.
This course is available to SPHCM and Forensic Mental Health postgraduate students. Other students will need to provide approval from their program authority and the approval of the course convenor to email@example.com
