Description of module content:

In this module you will examine and evaluate underpinning theory and principles related to: clinical leadership, change management and care co-ordination (LO1, 2 & 3). This will be achieved by developing awareness and astuteness of global, national and local political and policy issues and the influence this has on the allocation of resources (LO4). This will support learning about the role of the nurse in leading and coordinating care for individuals, families and groups of people (LO1). This will include transitions of care and discharges from or between services and settings.

Thereafter you will advance your learning in relation to leading and advancing a small quality improvement initiative (LO2 & 3). This will be achieved by learning about clinical leadership (LO2) and change management approaches (LO3) to support your development. Skills acquired in leadership and change management approaches will be applied to both advancing your quality improvement ideas, but also in facilitating and coordinating care within the available resource accounting for health economics and safe staffing (LO1, 2 & 4).

To complement the learning the use of reflection will enable you to reflect on your development of knowledge and skills in relation to the module leading outcomes and support you in preparation for proficiency as a registrant (LO5).
