WIT: Certificate in Management Development & Leadership for Healthcare – QQI Level 8

This programme will incorporate and build on Management Competencies for Nurse Managers as identified in a study undertaken by the Office for Health Management (2003).

 This is in line with the view from the Office for Health Management that any management development initiatives commissioned for nurse managers in the future should be informed by these competencies.

This is the proposed course outline, however, prior to commencement of the programme, it will be discussed with the funding agency and modifications can be made if necessary and in line with college academic regulations.

 

  • Role of the manager/leader in managing change in health care
  • Continuous quality improvement
  • Risk management
  • Budgeting and service development, delivery and evaluation and the role of the leader in strategic planning
  • Evidence based practice, policy guideline development and implementation

Certification:

Successful completion of the programme will result in the award of a ‘Certificate in Management and Leadership’, a level 8 Special Purpose Award from Waterford Institute Technology.

This is a QQI Level 8 special purpose award validated by WIT under delegated authority from QQI.

The programme will be delivered using a web enhanced approach. The e-leaning components will focus on covering the theories of management and leadership.

The college contact hours will focus on development of the application of management/leadership skills and interfacing with online learning.

Students will be given specific help and support in engaging with the academic elements of writing assignments, literature searches and online learning
