Course Overview

This module has been designed to develop leadership knowledge, skills, qualities and behaviours for clinicians working in a range of roles in healthcare settings and seeks to develop, nurture and enhance existing team working skills and clinical leadership requirements. Leadership theories and models are appraised and applied to the clinician's work context, with the aim of improving their leadership potential and abilities to lead and deliver high-quality health care in their field of practice, with a focus on the service user experience.

Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
