The Practical innovating in healthcare settings programme has two modules:
- Module One ‘An introduction to clinical innovation in healthcare settings’
- Module Two ‘Delivering and sustaining innovation in healthcare settings’
The programme includes:
- Defining and distinguishing clinical innovations and service redesign (developing theoretical analytical skills)
- Understanding processes of change management and spread of innovation using validated change management models (people management)
- Using systematic tools to diagnose opportunities and obstacles to innovation (developing systematic approaches to assessing readiness for innovation adoption)
- Using the PDSA cycle to systematically implement and monitor innovation deployment
- Using run and control charts to understand/interpret variation and monitor impact of innovation (using local data to inform decision making and effectiveness)
- Assimilating innovation into practice (what is and is not working and why)
- Project management (using a systematic approach to project management including timelines and setting, meeting and modifying objectives).
Students who complete the ‘Practical innovating in healthcare settings’ programme and pass the assignments gain 60 Level 7 (Masters Level) academic credits which can be used towards completing a full Master’s degree at Bucks New University.
