MBA Health Management consists of five core modules, two specialized modules (Governance & Accountability in Healthcare and Health Policy & Public Involvement) plus Project.

Governance & Accountability in Healthcare

This module brings together the principles and practice of Governance in the healthcare environment at a strategic level. With a particular focus on Clinical Governance, it promotes an understanding of the accountability frameworks for professional and other healthcare staff. Emphasis will be placed on the key areas of policy and models of governance, risk management and safety, legal and ethical issues, evidence-based practice, quality and metrics and organisational culture and teamwork. This will help to develop an understanding of the dynamics of clinical governance in practice, at professional and organisational level, in a challenging setting that is demanding a consistently better quality of care in a more compassionate environment.

Health Policy & Public Involvement

This module outlines the major aspects of health policy, public health issues and public involvement. In relation to health policy, it will explore the definition, translation of political vision into action and the formulation and implementation of policy that is for the benefits of staff, patients, and the public and that is responsive, flexible and patient-centred. The economics of healthcare will be explored and workforce policies will be examined, as they impact on the overall delivery of healthcare policy and strategy. Aspects of public health will focus on how the public is encouraged to stay healthy and to make lifestyle choices that contribute to improving the health of the nation. All of this will be underpinned by the need for public involvement at all levels of the care process and will emphasise the impact of strong public involvement at strategic level.
