Leadership for the Health Professions (Distance Learning)

This is a modular, flexible interprofessional programme which has been designed specifically for busy professionals as an online, distance learning programme in order to enable students across the world to develop their leadership and management skills and understanding. The course is delivered primarily using the BlackBoard online learning platform and students will need access to good wifi or broadband in order to fully engage with the multimedia course materials. The programme provides theoretical and practical leadership development, focussing on developing understanding of leadership and management at three levels: the intrapersonal (understanding yourself and developing yourself as a leader), the interpersonal (working with and leading others, groups and teams) and the organisational/system level (looking at complexity and change). The approach to leadership development aims to provide a broad-based theoretical and conceptual framework which students can use to apply to their own, others and organisational leadership and management practical situations. We take a unique, case study approach where we consider all aspects of health professionals' activities from a leadership and management perspective.
