Description for 2020/21

This module forms part of the BSc (Hons) Rehabilitation Science programme at Keele University, an innovative, integrated programme which prepares the graduate for further study or employment in a health and social care setting.
This module offers students a broad-based introduction to key organisation and management principles with particular reference to rehabilitation settings. Within the module students will explore, analyse and critically evaluate the complex interrelationships and influences that operate within organisations. Students will be able to identify how potential problems/opportunities in one area can influence another and offer reasoned strategies for their management. The module will use a problem based case study approach to enable students to analyse a wide variety of information, reflect upon management approaches and recommend critically reasoned solutions. This module will enhance graduate opportunity and employability.

Aims
To develop the key concepts of organisation and management and their application in health and social care settings. To also offer students the opportunity to explore and analyse the principles of effective management and leadership within organisations.
