Communication mangement in healthcare.
Study Communication Management in Healthcare at Ulster University in the United Kingdom.
This flexible and accessible professional programme will align with the Universitys Learning and Teaching vision, strategic aims and objectives through providing students with an innovative, responsive, flexible and relevant programme. This programme will contribute to the Universitys work on Connected Health, as this new course is suitable for interdisciplinary delivery within healthcare. The programme will aim to equip students with a range of knowledge and skills, which are relevant and applicable in communications within healthcare contexts.
The course has been designed to meet the needs of students wishing to understand the application of communication principles to healthcare contexts. This new course has specifically been designed to meet the needs of students who wish to gain a formal qualification in Communication Management in Healthcare. The target market for students is identified to include those working in communication positions or have communication related roles and responsibilities within a range of healthcare settings, including public, private and voluntary sectors. As increasingly more postgraduate students are working either full-time or part-time, the delivery of the modules needs to be more flexible (i.e. block teaching/short courses/online).
The course aims to facilitate a comprehensive and critical understanding of communication within healthcare and how this can be maintained through positive action at organisational and management levels. This is conceptualized as occurring within a multi-level framework that encompasses a focus on individual issues, the needs of targeted groups and the wider societal and cultural context. This course provides for the development of critical, analytical and independent thinking and aims to facilitate the skills necessary for employment, academic progression and continuing professional development.
