It considers factors contributing to error such as human factors, dysfunctional teamwork, ineffective decision-making and complexity in modern medicine. This module explores risk management and medico-legal jurisprudence, taking into account ethics, leadership, culture, change, training, finance, communication and education in the management of clinical performance. You will learn strategies for the effective auditing and evaluation of healthcare services to identify development needs. Assessment is via a 6,000-word in-depth case study in a subject of your choice.

You’ll be expected to raise meaningful questions about your specialty and may even work at the current limits of theoretical and/or research understanding, showing how you can use existing knowledge to develop new approaches.
