Quality and Patient Safety Improvement (MSc/PGDip/PGCert)

Course Description

The MSc in Quality and Patient Safety Improvement is an exciting new collaborative programme. It is hosted by the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, and also involves the Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership and Learning within the Nottingham University Business School; the Human Factors Research Group in the School of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering; and the Trent Simulation and Clinical Skills Centre, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The programme is aimed at postgraduate healthcare professionals and graduate management colleagues who wish to develop greater expertise in quality and patient safety improvement with a strong emphasis on application in practice. This may include clinical staff, professional managers or commissioners involved in design and delivery of primary care, secondary hospital-based care, mental health, community and pre-hospital care services. The programme is also suitable for those interested in education and teaching in this field and associated research, innovation and scholarship. Applications are welcomed from UK and International students.

This programme will link the academic and practical application of quality improvement and human factors science to the complexities and challenges faced by modern health and social care. At its heart, the programme is about understanding the underpinning science and evidence for improvement in quality, safety and effectiveness of patient care. Modules focus on concepts and practicalities of improvement at the level of individual practice, team performance, integrated clinical services, and from organisational and strategic policy perspectives. Specific experience will be developed in the application of tools and techniques to explore problems in practice and support sustainable implementation of innovative solutions. A key feature of the programme is the opportunity to apply science and theory into practice.
