You should note that successful completion of Leading healthcare improvements (K827) is a prerequisite for undertaking this module. As K827 is now discontinued, the exception is if a successful application for credit transfer is made to substitute for the former.
It is also a requirement that you have:
- a degree (FHEQ Level 6 / SCQF Level 9), conferred by a UK university or other recognised degree-awarding body
- access to a setting related to healthcare
- spoken and written English of an adequate standard for postgraduate study. If English is not your first language, we recommend that you will need a minimum overall score of 6 and minimum score of 5.5 in each of the four components: reading, writing, speaking and listening under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Please see the IELTS website for details.
You are strongly advised to study no more than this one 60-credit module in the same year.
If you have any doubt about the suitability of the module, please speak to an adviser.
No assumptions are made regarding your understanding of healthcare improvement, healthcare quality, research, evidence or skills. You will, however, be expected within the course to write assessment answers that demonstrate your powers of reasoning and an inquisitive approach to your practice. The course requires reflective forms of writing associated with what you discover in your healthcare context.
