Leading the management of change: Leadership 4

Module code: MW4013

This module is facilitated through specialist lectures, leadership exercises and workshops, role-play, problem based scenarios, work-based learning and case loading. It will enable you to develop your understanding of change management theory, including the strategies and tools required to effect change at local, national and international level.

During this module, you will evaluate change management theory and strategies within organisations which are of particular relevance within maternity/health services. You will construct and present a business case to lead and manage a change in health care practice, whilst critically reflecting on personal leadership and management skills as well as identifying areas for future development in managing resources.

Utilising your Leadership Portfolio, you will reflect on your learning experiences during the programme as part of a small inter-professional (midwifery and nursing) leadership learning set and during elective/internship opportunities facilitated by national leaders of the midwifery/nursing professions.

You will also evaluate the NHS Leadership Academy’s Nine Dimensions of Leadership and its strategic approach to the future healthcare agenda within the UK and internationally.
