This practitioner-led module which is targeted at participants with basic background in management (either through academic study or practice) equips participants with management skills needed for managing healthcare organisations. Teaching will be through lectures, group activities and panel discussions and there will be significant emphasis on the case study method. Participants will be expected to actively share their experiences and learn collectively. Topics covered will include leadership in the healthcare setting, strategy and planning for healthcare, human resource management and development, communications, marketing and branding, finance, operations, information and quality management (including accreditation, use of score cards and benchmarking).
Remarks: Although conducted outside office hours (Thursday evenings), site visits will be organised during office hours to enable participants to see first-hand ‘Management of Healthcare Organisations’ and learn from leading edge practitioners.
