Leading people and teams is a core function of a manager’s role and research shows that effective people management and developing high performing health teams directly affects patient/service user experiences and outcomes. Healthcare services are delivered to people through people. This programme aims to provide participants with the knowledge, skills and competencies to manage people in healthcare especially those working in and across a complex array of service delivery teams.
Participants will have the opportunity to apply existing and explore new theoretical frameworks; understand regulatory requirements and engage with subject matter experts.
They will consolidate their learning using simulation and directly applying their analytical skills to the work environment via practice-based module assignments.
The Human Resource and Performance Management in Healthcare programme at RCSI Institute of Leadership aims to:
- Develop participants’ capacity to understand how leading and managing people and teams contributes to the overall functioning of the healthcare system, organisations, organisational performance and patient/service user outcomes.
- Develop an understanding of the range of relevant people and team management frameworks and knowledge leading to enhanced and sustained performance.
